We are considering the 39W DP as we have been looking for a mid-entry DP coach for some time.
I'm still in the "research" stage but one of the few items so far I did not like was the small 600 watt inverter. It seems it was included to only run the main television.

I installed a Prosine 1800 in our present coach for making coffee and running the microwave in the early morning if dry camping and not wanting to start the generator. I also have a smaller 400 watt inverter which runs the computer, GPS system and a couple other things when we are traveling.

Just got back home from out trip to San Diego. 1100 plus miles and performance was better that expected. 6.3 MPG and it went up the grapevine (I5) at 50 plus except when cutoff by some fool darting in and out of traffic. It would then drop down to 30 MPH or so. I could then slowly pick back up to the 50 MPH range.

I was very impressed with the overall handling, steering, braking, etc.

The major concern is the loss of 2 quarts of oil, most of it ending up on the toad. I have an appointment with the Workhorse repair facility for next week. We have a short list of minor problems that the dealer will fix this week.

The more we get used to the interior layout the more we like it. It is not the perfect layout, I doubt that the perfect floor plan exists.
