Default Reflections of full time travel in our TM

Having lived in our Tour Master now, full time, for just over 2 years, I find I must give GS some accolades

In the pouring rain, driving, drenching, wind blasted rain found in North Oregon; not a leak. You know the wind is blowing but the coach stayed dry and sound.

In -20 weather in Montana (had to stay longer than we wanted), the coach stayed warm. Nothing in the basements froze.

In 120 weather in Phoenix, in August, the coach stayed at 82; which felt right cold after a trip outside.

In a miserable dust storm, followed by days of howling wind, in North Texas; the coach had some dust inside but not a lot. The TM held up well.

The TM drives very well. Have only added a Safe-T-Steer to stabilize the front wheels. I have been told that a bolder bell crank is a thought, but looking at the one that Frieghtliner put on our TM, I do not see any need for a replacement.

Will add a tire monitoring system. Have not decided on which model. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.

So, all in all. Our TM just withstood another meeting with 8 friends. They drive Newmar, Alpine, Alfa, Winnebago, Holiday Rambler, Fleetwood Revolution, and Country Coach. Overall, (and I'm not so enamored with the TM that I would compliment it if it didn't deserve it), the TM stands out as being one great coach.

I would buy another one.
