I got my Class C out of storage 2 weeks ago then bought a 25' Class A. It is a 1993 Damon Challenger and has a fuel injected 454 Chevy engine with overdrive transmission. We went to Willow River State Park in Hudson, WI with friends for our maiden voyage. Everything went well. We put on 350 miles for the test run. It tachs 2100 at 69 mph. Here is a picture of it next to the other one. It is only 2 feet longer.

There is no comparison between the two. The Class A is far superior. Speed, power, RPMs, interior and driveability are all much better.

You didn't mention the fuel mileage you got at 69MPH.

I haven't calculated it yet but I expect it to be better than the 8.3 mpg I get with the Class C.

It has been raining constantly in Wisconsin so out side work has been difficult. I replaced broken exhaust hangers. I washed the passenger's side then used Scrubbing Bubbles to clean it again. Next I applied Meguiar's Ultimate Compound to remove oxidation and clean the fiberglass. Finally I applied 2 coats of Nu Finish. I got the top half of the driver's side done using the same process.

I thoroughly cleaned the inside and installed a new stereo system. I relaced the rubber seals on the fresh water tank's connections and fixed the level indicator lights.

I finsihed the bottom half of the driver's side using the same process as outlined above. I used Scrubbing Bubbles to remove the bugs from the front. My fresh water drain does not seal completely and water dripped out of the tube so I capped it off for this year. I swapped the Optima batteries from my class C into the Damon.
