Clifford I was thinking if you are in the market for a new fleet of Busses this morning since someone in AZ had a winning ticket for the Powerball last night.

Aw, it weren't any big deal, but we did have to return the fur lined house slippers and the electric dog washer.

You buy them at the dollar store.  They are battery powered.  That's why they are so tricky to wash.

You don't have to carry plastic bags when you take them for a walk.

"Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the bus, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear."  

Electric dogs, wonder if the battery companies know about this?

Clifford, a question if I may? 

Do you perceive the Newell to be a better coach than say a Liberty or a Marathon?  Newell seems to be cutting a lot of corners on their interiors these days, noticeably a lot less luxurious than in previous years.  Then you have the German Transmission (I have heard they fly tech's in from Europe to work on them from time to time) and other outsourced items from Europe (doors, mirrors, etc).

I think the Foretravel looks like a better coach for the money.

Whadaya think.

Being a Foretravel owner, ya know I agree. After the MCI7 20+ year experience, I find this store bought coach the answer to all my RV dreams. with the ISM500 and 4000 series Allison with the hydraulic retarder and disc brakes about as good as it could get, also at 30k lb, it is a real hot rod. only the MCI with the 8V-92 (600+HP) w/RTO910 could run a mtn at higher speed. At 71 I still think hot rod thoughts.
Sorry for the short rant.

We have friends with a new IH 45 Foretravel  4 slides and 650 hp Cummins Don nice coach very pricey also it listed for million two he left a H-45 Marathon Prevost for it and they love it fwiw 

All the newer Newells with the Cummins I have saw have Allison transmissions. the Cat C-15 engines in Newell's some had the ZF transmissions 

What I don't like on all the newer Prevost by any converter is the bay full of all the command center electronics what going to happen to those in 10 years  when out dated ? bet they will be like Beaver Prevost from the 90's with the overhead display no one will want to touch it

good luck
