Corey, that is a beautiful coach. But I do think that trading for a 43' Bluebird is an extreme way to repair a bent tailpipe.

Looking forward to seeing it at Hillsborough.

Well, it also needed to be waxed Nick.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon. It's going to be quite a gathering this year!

You might be surprised at the drag race though, 500HP and 1450lbs of torque. Maybe I could fill the interior with helium.


I'd guess with 450 lb. ft. and 230 HP, I'd have the advantage at 14,000 lbs., light.

Sure - StaRV II will be happy to take on the GS1200 or the M3. In the spirit of fair competition, I'll have StaRV II at 15,500 lbs, with your car at only half of that...Big Grin

You are a generous man!

We'll discuss it over a drink at Hillsborough.

Corey, if you tow the trailer behind the new Bird, how long would you be overall? Can't wait to see it in December. [Oh, and you guys too]

We're very excited about Dec too!

The BB is 43' my trailer is a 16' flat nose, with 4'of tongue, so I'm at 63' overall. I think that makes me well within the 65' length rules of most roads when I'm towing.

Corey, Don't run under any low hanging limbs.

Thanks Betty, I'm already having fun "upgrading" her. Got both old TVs ripped out and trying to figure out the very complicated A/V system.

Say Hi to Carl! See you soon, but I think I read that you couldn't make the Hillsborough gathering??? Too bad if true, gatherings are where we get all our technical problems solved.

Too late!

I've already heard the music of limbs strumming the antennas at the very least. There is a feature called "Safeline" that I think is an infrared low object detection system, but I'm not clear how it works. It may be for when the coach is parked in putting up the electric antenna. Either way, common sense is the main ingredient in disaster avoidance.

Exhaust pipe vs. tree limbs.
BTW if you ever hear something rustling in your pipe check for birds. We had a bluebird in our truck pipe... He was a little sooted but survived the "blowout".
