But if you get on the throttle going up a hill it roars quite loudly at 4K RPM and seems to stay in 3rd or 4th too long before shifting and getting its good manners back.
As for handling, I find it well-behaved in most situation on the Interstates where the road is relatively wide and flat. It tracks well and isn't very much disturbed by semis unless in a cross wind situation of 20+MPH and the semi passes you going 80 or more. In these situations you will feel a push as the semi runs head to head with you and then a suck as it pass. Steering wheel corrections are necessary in order to maintain your lane.
I hope this reply helps.
Many thanks for the response. I believe the Hurricane 34F is on a F53 chassis with same power plant. The push and suck is a consideration with many RVs, my TT included. My dealer recommended a steering stabilizer to help.
All in all it sounds like you are satisfied with the performance.
Thanks agian for the response.
