"It sounds like the Simba coaches were built with a serious structural stability problem in the "house" portion. It probably would be one that would totally come apart in a rollover."

I believe you are correct. We are glad to be getting rid of it. Joe

azloafer, what motorhome(s) are you looking at to replace the Simba? I recommend you take your time and do lots of homework.

when i first bought our new unit, the w/s had a small leak, so i caulked it. itwas better, but still dripped in a different spot.so i cut a 1" piece of black eternabond tape and applied it across the top of the w/s, tappering it at the sides so as not to be visible, haven't had a leak since. thats my story and i'm sticking to it!

leaking windshield update

I am sooo happy to report, the windshield has been fixed. Now only the side passenger window is leaking. Our coach is up being looked at again hoping to solve this issue.

Snooky, Who do you have looking at your leaks, I'm in Melbourne, and would like to know. After reading the posts above I might suggest removing the cab clearance lights, cleaning and resetting them (fully bed them in sealant) in sealant to prevent moisture entry there also. On our coach I taped off the windobs where the meet the wall and taped the wall using vinyl tape (to form the radius corners and installed a black (to match the window frame) sealant so that the frame was sealed and it was easy to see if the seal fails in the future.

After several months of looking and test drives we have just put money down on a 2008 Itasca Latitude 39W diesel pusher. Just waiting for two recall items to be corrected. This is our fifth coach and our third Winnebago. We should have stayed with Winnebago.

Congratulations on the Latitude! It should give you a change in attitude! I am sure you will enjoy it very much. Keep us posted.
