We always enjoy trip reports. This one is from Jack Bowers, who owns a Limited Edition Lithium+ Road Chief.
"Happy to report that getting around with the Bowlus Road Chief continues to be easier than I thought. Yesterday I drove Rocklin to Truckee, which involves a 7000' elevation gain climbing up Donner Pass (Donner Pass to the Truckee Supercharger is downhill and you can do it on regen alone). It took 190 miles of range driving at 55 mph with climate control off. The temperature was 50s and I have 20" winter tires filled to 46 psi (the Bowlus tires are at 50 psi).
I'm also finding myself driving 65 mph in places where the Supercharger density is high. If there isn't much wind and the elevation is relatively flat, the energy draw is usually 550-600 Wh/mile at that speed.
Another interesting thing is the trip planner has gotten to know the trailer characteristics pretty well over the last 1000 miles, and it now does a good job of projecting the battery range (you can toggle in and out of trailer mode to see the projected impact of the trailer)."
In the November Road Chief Newsletter you'll meet the Thomas Family from Florida. We really enjoy Lauren, Christian and their daughter Ella and son B. Oliver. Their kids are the kind that makes us confident our collective future is in good hands. Thank you Lauren and Christian, we are so grateful for you to share your very touching story about how "Duke" has affected your lives. It is a perfect story for our November Newsletter and wonderful reminder for all of us to take a moment this month and let those we love know how grateful we are for sharing their life's adventures with us.
You’ll also read about how four seasons camping in a Bowlus Road Chief is so comfortable since everything is safely contained inside the shell. We love to park next to the "hill" so we have our own mini chalet to return to for a fab lunch or a relaxing nap. We know other Road Chiefs who enjoy snowshoeing and set the floors to heat while they are off exploring so their feet warm in no time upon their return.
A Road Chief can be counted on as your mobile emergency outpost during the “big” snowstorm of the year, like the picture above. The owners reported their silver stead held 72 degrees the whole time.
Whatever you plan for this winter, add a Bowlus Road Chief and it will even be more fun!
We also thank the local news for covering the Bowlus Silver State Showroom this week. You can read the story at http://vegasinc.com/business/2016/oct/31/because-travel-never-goes-out-of-style/.
