Well, we camped next to a brand new GHOST for a week in NY. The retired couple absolutely loved it. It is cool I gotta say. Now I wish I made a note of their address...they were from NW Chicago. They have to keep their GHOST offsite.

I don't own the ghost. But one of the co-owners of Nexus is a former Gulf Stream guy and was part of the team that brought the Super Nova to market in 2008, I do own a 2008 Super Nova also on the International chassis, as far as handling it really does drive like a much smaller unit. Steering is nice and smooth, turning radius is tight. Going down the road it's a Cadillac. I tow a 28ft car trailer and there's no pushing, pulling when being passed by the semi's on the interstate. I would think the newer Nexus rides a lot softer than my Nova. I think I read they have the air ride susp on the rear but not sure. I will caution you on finding an International dealer that's willing to work on the motorhome. Some do but most shy away from the motorhomes. So coach work is mostly directed to places like General R.V. and the chassis work to the International dealer. ( I would recommend getting the super C that comes with the 22.5 tires and wheels) one of their models have the 19.5's

I flew down to lazy days and drove a super nova in April. It actual drove really nice and handled really well. If the one your looking at doesn't have the air suspension don't even bother. It bounces the back of the camper REALLY bad. My brother rode back there during the test drive, going down an asphalt interstate and he laid on the bed while I was driving. He said it was so rough that he actually bounced high enough to have air between him and the bed. We went over and looked at the ghost and it looked ok the build quality seems to be better than gulfstream. I wasn't very impressed with fit and finish. I realize they are a new company and still getting the bugs worked out. Now with my recommendation. I ended up buying a 2013 jayco Seneca. If you can afford it that's what you will buy the cummins diesel the freightliner chassis and the fit and Finnish is in a completely different class. If for whatever reason you won't consider the Seneca you should go and look at one so you have a really good apples to apples comparison. Going super c is the way to go you just put it on cruise and go down the road. We've been in pretty good winds that would have made me nervous in our last class c and it just goes down the road. There's no wobble from semis. We pull my wife's car behind and you can't even tell it's back there. Sorry for the long post. I needed some help when I was going through the process several months ago and no one seemed to have experience. The bottom line is. The ghost will be fine but the Seneca is the nicer machine.

Gulfstream Supernova owner here also. The Super C is a great choice to have the extra load and towing capacity, extra storage under the floor, and features. Really like mine overall. The big living room slide and then the BR slide make for a lot of nice space when opened up.

Even though I have the International chassis, I would prefer Freightliner or other then International. Specifically so you can get a Cummins or other engine choices besides the International versions (Maxxforce). Mine has the 300 hp VT 365 and it is a little weak for my preference. Being only 6.0 liters, it needs more size.

I tow a car on a trailer without any troubles. Just accelerate a bit slower, and some hills slow down a bit more by the top. But the chassis can handle it fine. Mine is GVWR 26000 lbs, you don't need a special license under 26000. Although I have the license just so no hassles with the combined MH and trailer weights potential to be over 26000..

Hello! We are new to this forum and wanted to comment about the Nexus Ghost driving question. We recently purchased the Ghost 36 after researching a bit. We traded in a Greyhawk. Compared to the Greyhawk, the Ghost is a much nicer ride. It is sturdy with a lot more power. We feel safer. We just towed a vehicle and it handled the ride well.
Thank you for allowing me to post.
