The Merciless Sun; Ravages of Time

Fate, Destiny, Karma. Call it what you will but it is a quirky deal. Things happen for a reason you know. When I bought the Old Girl back in November of 2005, I had never been inside an RV– much less a Class A diesel pusher. So I bought the Fish Bus with the idea of taking some road trips and pulling the race car trailer back and forth. Those were back in the days when I had more jingle in my pockets, that’s  for sure.

Is the Dolphin a unit to start off with for a young family? Is it a comfortable unit? Is it easy to work on if you are mechanically inclined? Any quirks about your unit that you’d prefer not to have to deal with? How is the steering with the front axle set back the way it is?
