Paul and Mary are proud to announce the arrival of their new moose! Weighing in at 32,350 pounds, he is about 13 feet tall, 8 1/2 feet wide and 40 feet long.
We spotted this 2009 Winnebago Tour 40TD online while we were in Asheville. We decided to make a 380-mile detour to Ashland, VA, to see this dream machine. We spent the day with it yesterday and decided to make it home.
Our new moose is powered by a 400hp Cummins diesel engine with an Allison transmission and is built on a Freightliner chassis. Put all that together and you get a ride that feels like you're gliding on air.
Eight feet longer than our first moose, this thing is big. Really big!
Here's the view looking toward the front. (Apologies for the crummy pictures, but it was late in the day before we inked the deal. I remembered to take a few pictures as the sun was going down.)
There are so many switches, buttons, dials and gauges! It'll take awhile to figure out how they all work.
We love everything about this big moose. But, here are a few of our favorite little things. We both appreciate lighting, and think the soft accent lighting above the kitchen cabinets and other spots makes it feel much more homey.
Speaking of homey. How about that fireplace? We know a couple of cats who are going to love napping in this spot. And, we can't wait to catch some KU basketball on that 37-inch flat screen!
Paul has claimed his favorite spot. No doubt about it.
Moving starts tomorrow afternoon or Thursday morning. Lots to do, but we're looking forward to it. We'll have lots of pictures, of course. And you can look forward to a video tour of our Tour.
In case you're wondering, we're naming this coach Bullwinkle, too. But, we think we might just call him Big Bull.
