The only negative thing I have heard about super Cs is they are top heavy in the wind. You might want to drive one in the wind.

Should not be as bad a standard class C. The 5500 chassis has more suspension than does the E450.

I can see how these would be heavier in the wind.... not as much weight below like a Class A.

From Gulfstream's rep, they only made 20 of these before ending the product line due to the economy and consumer market. I really like the Cummins part of the rig. They are great engines... I will keep you updated on the 16mpg part.... lol. It will be hard to believe.

I might be picking up a sunrader on the way back into town tooo... .stopping off in Kansas.

Very neat. I am interested in the mpg thing so will look for your posts on the results. I hope it does do the 16mpg..would sure be nice to improve that area of the RV experience!

They really aren't any more top heavy than any other MH. I certainly didn't find that with my 5500 Kodiak that I had for over 3 years.

One of my recollections from sitting in one at the Tampa show is that the driver's seat is very low and very uncomfortable. GS introduced two new MHs at that time and my comment might apply to the other - I've forgotten the name of the other. Both were on Dodge chassis (again if I recall correctly).

Yea, the seat has to definitely go! Other than that and getting used to the 8 1/2' width of the beast... we like it.
