A few on the list know - I have developed a new passion lately. Loosely
following Unka Bart's lead, my next ride will have 820 ft/lbs of torque.
It needs it with a GVWR of 28,000 lbs...
A 1993 U280 Foretravel. 8.3 Cummins C, 300 hp.
Those in the know rank it below Newell and Prevost, but about even or
slightly under a Bluebird.
For pics, go to www.motorhomesoftexas.com, select 'sales', 'on site
inventory', then scroll down to the 3rd one from the bottom and click on
'details'. And no, I didn't pay that much - close to 20% less incl tax,
tag and license... One owner, doctor - traded for a new one. Color
camera/LCD is $1100.00 to upgrade, as is the fridge - which is 4 months
old. Satellite system is about $2200.00.
Low book is $70K. Ave Retail $85K, orig price $295K - in 1993!
Now all I gotta do is learn how to drive it. Considered selling the V8
fer 1/2 a sec. Nahhhh.
Flying to Texas in 2 weeks to bring it home.
