A new Adventurer never made it very far from the plant in Forest City on Sunday(April 4). It caught on fire about 2 miles south on Hwy. 69. I don't know how bad the damage was but I could see black smoke from where I was parked at the rally campground. I am sure it was the driver's fault! After all, these things are inspected real good before they are sent out!

Well, That could be a good thing! Just think of the headaches that saved for someone who would buy it and have that happen to them. Or maybe it's part of the NEW quality control process at Winnebago! LOL I hope the driver was OK!

It may have been the new Itasca model - the Sunfire.

Maybe the solar power option needs to be re-engineered to compensate for the mirrors. Either that, or add a big heat sink to the coach.
