After looking at the picture of your rig I fail to understand why you would want to trade.

Wallynn, Thanks, I try to keep it "lookin goood!". You're the first person on this forum to compliment me on it.
Actually I was down in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico and pulled into an RV park right on the Pacific Ocean. I should have changed the camera angle to show that beauty is less than 50' from the breaking waves. There was another real nice MoHo with rusted rebar welded together over the windows but I can't find that pic. I just wanted to share that beauty with you guys.
I decided not to stay there and went back to San Diego

I drove a Georgetown on the 06 Ford chassis. It has more power than my 99 Ford chassis and rides better. I liked the ability to have the transmission downshift when slowing down. I liked it am considering a new MH. Based on my good experience with my current Ford chassis, I would choose the new Ford over a Workhorse.

I would choose the Workhorse W24 chassis over the Ford. Ford can't compete with the W24 with it's 6 speed Allison transmission. 30,000# GCWR

I wonder how many W24 owners realize they can be over the 26000 lb limit with toad attached and in some jurisdictions require a "higher" license?
