Newmar's web site indicates the Grand Star is available with the optional FRED chassis.

I stand corrected on Newmar's Freightliner purchases. I guess I was thinking only of DP's and gas.

Production will be close all week next week, instead of working the 3 day a week schedule. Service is still at 4 days and they are taking all pay work they can get. They did a custom paint job on trailer to match the coach, last week. Newmar is being very proactive. Now if they could do it right the first time, we could all save money.

The 31 was a mix, none from service.
