I suspect the lightweight/narrow body designs would probably do well here in North America. They certainly aren't for everybody, but I suspect there's a large enough contingent of potential owners who would look at this option versus the SOB's. As gas prices climb this may be an option Thor are considering.

I went to the WBCCI headquarters when I was visiting Jackson Center. I went there about 4:15 in the afternoon; they were supposed to be open 'til 4:30. Not a soul around. I didn't get to sign up.

Still deliberating

Good Information

My wife and I are dropping off our trailer for upgrades sometime in March. We're planning to attend the 2PM factory tour. We'll also check with WBCCI to see if we can stop in to say hello.

Thanks for all the restaurant suggestions. The bicycle museum is right up our ally. We may be without our tow vehicle for part of the day while a new brake controller is installed. Good to know there are some things do to/see within walking distance.
