How will they look after 10 years?


Probably about the same since they are UV resistant as I recall. I've since seen them on 10's of RVs but seldom have the chance to ask the owners how old they are. But I've yet to see a set that looked 'weathered', as in splitting, tattered, or yellowed.

If they returned a 5% in mpg you would see every trucking company using them.
These come up a few times a year and most admit it keeps the toad and rear view camera cleaner. Do a search for air tabs on the forum. They have been around for years.

You can put all of your money on those other "fixes" but none will stop the tail from wagging the dog until you install a trac bar. What it does is keeps the diff centered in the frame. If you do a search on Irv2 you will find a lot of info. A lot of people build there own as I did. They are not rocket science, you can buy one and have it installed but its kinda pricey around $500 I think. Most any welding shop should be able to help. good luck

I owned a 1974 Winnebago Indian (can I still call it that?) on Dodge Chassis in the low 80's.
If/when a semi passed it you would be moved over a 1/2 lane!
It handled horribly in the wind too.
The problem with it was the gen and 2-40 lb propane tanks were behind the rear axle with a lot of overhang and made it tail heavy.
Hopefully your MH builder was smarter than that design. ??

We have a 2013 36 ft. Tiffin Open Road on the Ford chassis and when my wife started chemo she could not ride in the coach. We spent $ 7,000, which is less than a new diesel and these guys worked miracles: https://www.hendersonslineup.com/
