2004 MOUNTIAN AIRE, THIS IS MY FOURTH CLASS A, PREVIOUSLY A 37G ITASCA ON A FORD CHASSIS. HANDLED GREAT BUT ONLY 275 HORSE. DRIVING HOME FROM DEALER THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME ME AND HAD TO GET USED TO WORKHORSE CHASSIS. AFTER A 500 MILE TRIP WITH MOTOR HOME LOADED NO DIFFERENCE. NOT VERY COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE, FEELS LIKE REAR TIRES ARE FLAT. ALSO EXPECTED POWER WOULD BE BETTER WITH 65 MORE HORSEPOWER, DISSAPPOINTED. EVERYONE I TALK TO WITH THIS CHASSIS HAS THE SAME COMPLAINT. I WOULD THINK WORKHORSE WOULD ADDRESS THIS ISSUE AND I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SPEND $ WITH AFTERMARKET ON A BRAND NEW MOTOR HOME.

BKFMS, welcome to our website and forum. If you would please use lower case; it is much easier to read. Sorry to hear of the ride problems of the new coach. Have you talked directly to Workhorse about this? I would recommend it if not. Good luck and hope you get the ride fixed.

WELCOME!!!!!

BKFMS I have the W22 under a Kountry Star 3651 and I have to say that the w22 is by far the most stable I have had. The only Mod I did was to put a stabilizer Bar on the rear end and it was like a night and day difference. I had the Ford Chassis under a National RV Seaview before and there is just no comparison the w22 is so much better, more power, more torque, better fuel economy and more stable on the road.

I agree with the power, milage, quietness,ride,etc and after my second trip of 600 miles much more comfortable with the handling. Must be getting used to it. looking at all the options, I still think the Henderson Track Bar would make it better.
