Props to Spartan

I just returned from an almost 2000 mile trip towing a 20K, 42' toyhauler using the 210 Tow Performance tune. The tune is awesome, temps were never a problem, good fuel economy (averaged about 9) and of course firm shifts! This was all done over some steep grades (Grapvine and the pass from San Diego to El Centro). This tune is much better than the regular 210 of the past. So far all those doubters who have not purchased a Spartan or are concerned of towing with it.........get one! By the way, I was lucky to get 9 miles a gallon empty, and now I get it towing. Happy Spartan owner here!

42 ft. toyhauler!!! You must have a good amount of toys!

It's good to hear some real world results from the 210 tow tune.

Yep, triple axle. Weighs 16k empty. Needless to say, I need to plan my fuel stops carefully!
