Funny article I read at the barber shop today.

Funny!

Funny. I have read about similar issues with RV's. One of them was a weight distribution design flaw.

At least the guy wasn't drinking and put it on cruise to join the party!

RV for a bachelor party? I can't imagine why.

My wife still wants one for when we retire. I hope they come equipped with mini nuclear power plants by then!

I drove my dad's motor home on a Toyota dually truck chassis. It didn't drive bad, but under the hood was a 4 banger! Going up a mountain with a few people and you almost had to get out and help push!

My parents had one of those. The 22R actually did quite well for pulling a motorhome, although it really didn't like to go much over 55 mph.

They traded it in for one with an E-350 chassis cab and a 460. That article summed it up pretty well. Even so, it was still a lot of fun.

Done the "rent an RV for a race" thing a couple times. They drive like pigs but if you want to bring the comforts of home on the road, not a bad trade....

I had a customer years ago that had the mighty toyota motorhome and you are not alone on the 55 top speed. You had to whip that thing to get it to 55 and have a little tail wind. I looked at everything on it thinking it had a low power issue but in the end it just left the factory with no power.
