i think the 2010/2011 forward astoria's are basically the previous tuscany
so you have many here that fit in the group
we could have a tuscany/astoria crowd

thor really made the lineup weird when they changed the tuscany to the xte and lt with tag.

120 psi seems high
i run 100 up front and 95 in the rear duals
this is based on weight and using goodyears chart

100 up front is firm but not over hard
front axle is right on 11200lbs and the rear is 19800 ish
pretty much all the time
if it helps

Yep...like I mentioned before...I have not done a 4 corner weight...coach is new...I pressed all my tires up to 110 lbs...figure they will drop a couple of lbs between now and summer...if she beats me to death I will drop em down to something similar to your pressures...

Hope to get a 4 corner weight one of these days...it sure rides smooth though!

A Tuscany/Astoria site would be nice though. I suspect there are many more Tuscanys out there...those are sweet coaches...if they will have us ;-)

Hello everyone.. Yes, I'm an 2011 Astoria owner also.. Retired military, but went back to work for a few more years. We purchased this for the real retirement!

I had the same issue with the bulb, and ironic, same location. Mine didn't push/turn like it suppose to, so they had to change the whole fixture for one single bulb under warranty. LOL.. Works now though.

Jim, We are de-winterized (don't really winterize here in central coastal CA), packed and ready to hit the road on Monday. BLM areas, here we come. Hope your camping season starts soon.

Not sure what the BLM areas are...but I bet you will have fun! Every time I get ready to de-winterize the lows get down in the upper 20's...but I thing the cold WX is over...heading out to Chesapeake TT next weekend (close to the house) for a shake down...then to the Richmond race the following weekend! We have yet to camp in our new toy...Safe Travels!

BLMS=Bureau of Land Management. In the western part of the country that means nearly free camping in beautiful areas. You have to try it.

Another Astoria owner here. 2010 3470 Astoria. Got it about 1.5 years ago as part of an estate sale for a real good price. Put lots of miles on it including a trip last fall to Key West FL. No major problems.
