We will be picking up our White Water Retro 176S tomorrow!  A month after our vintage 1984 Rockwood Motor Home caught fire on the highway on the way to our seasonal site.  We love the retro look.

Greetings from Maine! We've had our Retro 177SE for 8 months and have taken 2 long trips, one to New Mexico, the other to several southern states.  She brings a smile wherever she goes, and often evokes stories of former trailers from fellow travelers.

We too have had our 177SE for about the same length of time (7+ months).  No long trips yet, but lots of short ones, most under 300 miles.  We just purchased a Ram 1500 with the new EcoDiesel motor and are now getting around 18+ mpg when towing!  NOW, we're ready for some loooooonger trips.

Wow, love that mileage.  Depending on headwinds and hills, the mpg while towing with my Ecoboost F-150 can get as low as 7.  Ugh.

Hope is on the way...sorta.  I just found out that both Ford and GM are going to come out with their own version of the Ram EcoDiesels, probably in the 2019 model year.  The Ram eco has impacted the light truck market in a way that has shook both manufactures to the core.  Either they produce their own 1/2 ton diesels for high mpg or Fiat-Chrysler is going to own the light truck market in a few more years.  As a previous owner of a Ford 150 and a GMC Sierra, both trucks which were good 9in their day) this is all good news.
