RE: cummins "53"

I have a 1999 code 53 ISB. Had it 14 yrs, no problems (have to admit, was quite concerned when I learned about the potential issue after I'd bought the coach). Re. what you are looking at, I believe the cracked block issue would have occurred by now. If it passes a pressure test now, I wouldn't worry.

RE: Small Class A with Twin beds no slides

Take a look at Lazy Daze (24 or 27 versions). Class C, but otherwise might be what you want.

RE: 260 hp?

I have a 99 275hp 5.9 ISB pushing approx 20,000 lbs (4,500 more when towing), does just fine. Have climbed many hills w toad (Mammoth Mtn, Death Valley, Silverton, etc). I wouldn't worry at all about the 260 hp version on a 18k lb coach. BTW- I have the less desirable 4 speed MT643 trans, still performs fine.

RE: California Here We Come!

While in Indian Wells, plan a full day trip through Joshua Tree NP - great place in March. Edit: Also, wild flowers could be on display then in Anza Borrego state park - another full day trip.

RE: night stopper on the Interstate 15 Utah

When I drive to Yellowstone or Grand Tetons, I load addresses into GPS for a couple Wal-Mart's on I-15. Then I drive until starting to get tired, always keeping in mind how far to next store. I try to arrive about 8 pm; find resturant in walking distance, eat dinner, go to bed 10 or 11 pm. Wal-Mart's in UT: https://www.google.com/search?q=walmart+in+utah&oq=walmart+in+ut&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.6378j0j8&client=tablet-android-samsung&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#istate=lrl:mlt

RE: Jeep toad rides to rough.

As others have said, shocks, tires, and tire pressure are the place to start (and stop). Springs don’t really effect the ride quality as much as you’d think. They mostly hold the vehicle at a particular height. Oh I would have to completely disagree - ride starts with the springs and cheap aftermarket springs equal terrible ride. A lot of science goes into the rate of compression of those springs and how they rebound. Going from a factory spring to a cheap aftermarket is the fastest way to learn to hate your TJ, especially when you feel the cracks in the road through your neck. OP is talking about improving ride with stock ride height, I assume stock OEM springs & shocks. "Upgradjng" the worn shocks would be worthwhile (think he's now done that).  Not much improvement should be expected from different springs, would only do so if he's looking for lift.

RE: Jeep toad rides to rough.

As others have said, shocks, tires, and tire pressure are the place to start (and stop). Springs don’t really effect the ride quality as much as you’d think. They mostly hold the vehicle at a particular height. Shocks do the most controlling up and down. Variable rate springs in particular are of minimal value. Having said that, you should get a tolerable ride from that LJ, but it will never match a uni-body passenger car (i.e. CRV, Equinox, Edge). I tow a modified TJ (Wrangler) for off-roading trips and a CRV for any other outings. Wouldn’t consider a Wrangler unless it would be used off road. BTW – that LJ will never go down in value. It's much sought after for a starting point for off-road builds (perfect "in between" 103 inch wheelbase).

RE: Class A to Super C

I'd be interested in comments from those who have spent considerable time driving both a DP and a super C (please mention which models).

RE: What 4X4's best for Flat-Towing?

Decide what you want to drive, given what you will be doing with it (i.e. go drive candidate cars). Wranglers are great off road, but sacrifice comfort, utility, and economy on road (I own one). Pre 2015 CRV is considerably lighter and much friendlier on road as a run about, but not for off road adventures (I own one). I'd guess a Grand Cherokee (with the right transfer case), would be half way between - better on road than a Wrangler, better off road than a CRV. You need to decide which trade offs works for your intended use.

RE: Winnebago Model Differences Question ?

Go here and look at the specifications for each: Winnebago Class A Gassers Sightseer and Sunova are the same thing (top of the line in gas), with different name plates and perhaps different colors/patterns. Vista LX and Sunstar LX are also the same and a "step down" in the gas line up. The above link will take you to the brochures that will explain the differences. BTW - Adventurer and SunCruiser brand names have been discontinued. There were also identical (except for name plates and colors).
