I have a RM 7710 and I like it. Has lifetime map upgrades, complete Woodall's Directory, construction information, downgrades, sharp curves, and it can be programed for your specific RV ( length, height, weight,etc.) You can also programm in things like no u-turns, no dirt roads, etc. It works for me.
I just bought a 2012 Berkshire 36 ft DP. I am well satisified with the coach in its quality and its performance. So far, only two minor issues needed addressed, and the dealer took care of those. I think it is a great deal for the price. Owned a Fleetwood Bounder gas model before, and it beats that by a mile.
As wyn-pat says, Discount tire has no choice for 22.5 rims. Also, RPM (revolutions per mile) is only one issue. There are others to consider such as aspect ratio. Miata.net doesn't work either, unless I am doing something wrong. Thanks for the replies.
Does anyone know where you can find a comparison chart for RV tires? I have tried the Michelin web site, and several others, but I cannot find anyone that compares different manufacturers tire sizes for equivalency. I currently have Michelin XRV 255/80R 22.5 tires. Load range G. Is there a chart somewhere which would tell me what other manufacturers have equivalent size tires to this size Michelin? For example, is a Goodyear G159 size 265/75R 22.5 Load range G equivalent in width, height profile, etc. to the Michelin? Just looking for possible interchanges with the Michelin tire if the time comes.
I had a Fleetwood Bounder before my current coach. I had some steering issues with it. I had Steer Safe installed and it really corrected the problem. It helps greatly in cross winds and passing 18 wheelers. Had it installed on my current coach which has a Freightliner raised rail chassis, and I have no steering issues. Small investment($440)to correct those issues and have front blow out protection. You can check it out at www. steersafe.com.
I just drove a Holiday Rambler Trip FRED,and I would not buy that over a diesel pusher. The engine noise was great, especially on up and down hill roads. They do not insulate them enough to cover the noise. I also agree with the other issues raised by AFChap. I don't think any manufacturer is continuing to produce these in 2013 models. That must tell you something.
I just bought a 2012 Berkshire 36-FWS. Had a couple issues that the dealer quickly repaired, and I just drove it 1200 miles home, with no issues. I am pleased with the quality and the amenities in the coach. I believe you do get the most for your money.
I bought one 6 months ago. I like it. Large 7 inch screen. You just input your coach specifications and things you don't want to do, like make u-turns, travel on non paved roads, etc. Keeps me out of trouble. Notifies me of upcoming grades, and construction. Just downloaded all the Woodall Campground information on a recent update. It also has checklists, points of interest, a virtual dashboard,travel centers, parking/rest areas, fuel locations, restaurants, and lodging, not that you need the last one. I would recommend it.
