After spending a couple of summers in my youth washing and delivering motorhomes for Neff Bros. RV, my father and uncle's RV renting business (sorry for the shameless familial promotion), I have developed a certain affinity for these behemoth symbols of conspicuous consumption. Fleetwood RV is one of the most well known names in the RV biz, and it's just begun selling new 2006 models of its Providence and Excursion Class-A diesels. These Fleetwoods have nice EZ store compartment doors that are still accessible when the slide outs are extended, large 16-gallon water heaters, a sofa sleeper with air mattress (didn't have that in my day), and a 350-hp Cat motor with a rear-mounted radiator. I can attest from personal experience that stoplight drags in an RV are extremely boring until it comes time to stop.
