Wow! Did you get a load of the size of the flat screen TV 36" is huge for that space; pretty cool.

He shoulda trimmed the roof fairing down a bit; looks awkward sticking up above the roof of the coach. Other than that it looks OK.......

I agree with Gary that these high roof fairing look disgustingly ugly.

But one guy told me he had rather them damaged at a low underpass, tree hanging down.... then the equipment (A/C, satelite,...) on the roof.
Well, that sort of makes sense too.

Another spelling refresher-
NO "g" in Cummins
NO "u" in Peterbilt (I know, THIS isn't a Pete, but you see this booboo ALL the time...)
Also, if the guy hits a low underpass or tree with the ugly high fairing, unless he is going REAL slow, the A/C, antennas, etc. will STILL get nailed......
Bottom line(literally in this case), trim the fairing.

I was also thinking about this while traveling through some low spots last weekend. The fairing will not really "protect" anything in the unfortunate event of a high speed miscalculation. However, it will be another item to replace and repair after prying your rig out . . .
