Cool weather, but sunny.

The vehicle with the new W16 workhorse chassis is a dream to drive.

Actually too easy and I must learn to be less nonchalant. I was the same thing with my Goldwing SE. Very easy to get distracted.

My wife was surprised how quiet it is and was expecting the diesel noise. The wind made more noise than the engine.

The absence of the doghouse (engine is lower in the frame, as it is wider on the W16) makes getting in an out of the seat very easy.

Finition is much better than the Rockwood 2005 TT I had.

We will start unloading all of the equipment that have been sitting in the basement since last fall.

Finally as for the chassis, it was a 158.5 shipped by WH, but stopped at Mor-Ride to get extended to 193 inches before going to R-Vision.

Have a good trip

Txs all.

First correction, just read my subject and it is a 2006, not a 2008.

Also, it is a gas engine. When I re-read my note, I saw it could be construed as a diesel engine.

Did 1st necessary mods today. Changes all the locks and latches to open and close the same way, and that the key is inserted the same way on all storage doors.

Probably will save 5 minutes now when I want to open the doors :-))
