|Workhorse vs Ford||Will||8-28-02|
|Now own 2000 Itasca 35 ft Suncruiser with full Banks system. Am considering new Suncruiser on Workhorse W-22 chassis (plus add'l upgrades to the coach portion). Would appreciate inputs from recent experience w/Workhorse operators, particularly with Ford experience. Thx.|

|Hi. I bought a 2002 GeorgeTown 32' Class A on the Ford Chassis with the V10 Triton engine. I've only put about 4000 miles on it so far, but I'm very impressed. This is my 3rd MotorHome. I had a 79 Itaska 30' (Nightmare) 454 Chevy, P30 chassis. Followed by a 95 Chinook 21', too small.|
The GeorgeTown is by far the quietest chassis I've owned. Almost no side sway when trucks pass. A very telling clue is to look at whats available in 'AfterMarket Chassis Improvement'. Look in any 'Camping World' catelog and you'll find lots of stuff to 'Improve' for the WorkHorse chassis, but nothin for the Ford. This tells me the 'WORKHORSE' NEEDS Improving.

|I don't know about the Ford chassis but my 2002 workhorse on a Safari Trek is one scary ride. I have had much of the front end replaced with little improvement. What can I do??|

|I have the "New" workhorse chassis that you are asking about on my 2003 34ft Landau w/2 slides. IMO there is nothing out there right now to compare to this 8.1 and allison 5 speed combination. The whole chassis is new and much better than the old P30 454 described earlier. I know. I had one. This workhorse has great brakes and no lean or sway, its built tough but rides smooth. We just got back off a 600 mile first trip and had no problems. It drives like a DP and is quiet in the cockpit. The dog house is low and not hard to manuever around. Drive them both. I think you will agree. That 5 speed allison is one fine shifting workhorse. You can't go wrong with the new WH chassis. Be sure to get the W20 0r W22 because the smaller workhorse still has the chevy 4 speed. Hope that helps. Tex|
