We just purchased a new Dolphin class A 35' with a workhorse chassis. I prefer the workhorse as there is more storage under coach, as well as more horsepower, 350Hp with Chevy, and the interior engine cover is a lot smaller, easier to step over.

I currently own a 2003 36wdd lapalma on the workhorse chassis which I like pretty well. But over the Thanksgiving weekend we traveled on a 450 mile round trip in my Dads motorhome a 1999 Bounder on a Ford chassis. I drove over three hundred of those miles. He has 28,000 on the chassis and he has installed Bilsteins shocks on the rear. And we travled through 30 mile an hour winds. After driving his I wish I had got the Ford chassis it has much better road feel and his is the 20,500 lb. chassis I am sure there 22,000 lb. chassis is better. But I had not trouble running seventy plus and passing semi's. Like I said I like my workhorse but don't believe all the hype surrounding it the Ford is a real stablie chassis for about four thousand dollars less. The salesman would rather sell the workhorse for the cost differance. Also I could tell very little differance in acceleration between mine and his. Plus he has had no trouble with his ford since it was new. Mine has been back to workhorse twice for bad wiring and fuel injectors.

My experience: I bought a 1999 Georgie Boy Landau Mod. 3410 new, on 18,000lb F53 chassis, Ford V10. I, too was impressed with the way it drove on test drive, That was until I took the first long trip. It rode like a buckboard, you felt every expansion joint on the freeway. I added $6,000.00 worth of aftermarket items, Banks, Mor-Ryde sys., Bilstiens, etc. Just gave me a slight improvement. I had had it with the rough ride, started looking at new MH's, finally settled on A Gulf Stream 8378MXG on Workhorse W22 chassis w/22.5 wheels. I can't describe the difference in power, handling and ride for a 37' MH. You should look at Gulf Stream as they have a motor home of every size and every pocketbook. The w22 is about a $9,000.00 upgrade, worth every penny of it! Their quality is fantastic. Mike T. Rainytown, USA
