True RV Story II
Published October 30, 2007
David & Molly thoroughly enjoyed there visit to Newport Oregon's, Outdoor Resorts, Pacific Shores so much they purchased 2 lots there. They have continued to have extended stays there every summer since 2005. As mentioned earlier there new Magna is equipped with an option called "Vorad". Vorad is an $11,000.00 "Collision Avoidance System" which probably leaves you thinking, if this coach has Vorad (plus a back-up camera and a Good Samaritan guiding) how could he possibly back into anything? The answer is simple; Vorad comes out of the semi-tractor/over the road truck industry. The system typically is comprised of three components; short range radar's, 2 on the passenger's side and one in front. Since being added to motor homes some manufacturers have added 2 additional short range radars to the driver's side but nothing in the rear.
Knowing this every time his salesman speaks with a customer that says they are heading to Pacific Shores, he suggests looking up David and Molly and saying hi. "I've heard" during that conversation these customers are specifically instructed to a sequence of events that goes something like this:
Customer: Stares at Vorad Radar and asks David " Is that Vorad?"
David: "Anxiously replies, Yes it is"
Customer: "Tell me David, how does that system work when your backing up?"
David: "I see you have met my salesman"
