"Vista" is a Winnie model name, "Suncruiser" is an Itasca model name. How you got WBGO to build you that combo must be an interesting tale, indeed.

What do you think of the six speed vs your last vista?
Rear Stabilizer, Front Track Bar and Centramatic Wheel Balancers Tire Balancers, Tire Balancing, Wheel Balancer and Wheel Balancing from Centramatic is all you need. The ride will amaze you.

Probably doing rear track bar first (front already has one from factory) then centramatics, then steering stabilizer (not sure which).

Interested to see the slightly larger tires and alum rims, annoyed with the noisy stock stainless liner/simulators on mine, bet it will look nice.

Looks good, tempting, will be interesting to see with new tires, clearance is close in front wheel openings with stock.

You get an exhaust tip too?

Will you be installing the same "modified" Maxim Sumo?

In what aspect were they an improvement over the regular ones? Handling or Comfort?

So what is your aim? Handling or comfort?

I did some research on a coach of the same size as ours but built on a different chassis: The Allegro Breeze 28BR by Tiffin.
It also have a short chassis (158 inches). Since it is a pusher, the front is even lighter than ours. To overcome this, they added dead weights to the front of the frame.
