Where are you located. No use for me to give you a source on the west coast if you are in the east.

First, you do not want a aluminum radiator on a big diesel engine. There is so much vibration caused by the diesel that sooner or later (probably sooner) the aluminum is going to crack. Also the aluminum is a one piece radiator. Top and bottom tanks plus all of the tubes are one piece. Cracks are inevitable. I went to a company in Oregon who has a great work ethic and a fine product. It is mfg with a copper core that bolts to a copper top and bottom tank. The only way to make a radiator. The price is right too.

I do not agree with Stretch in his assessment of a one piece radiator due to experience however I do agree with his recommendation of Radiator Supply House. They are the ones that supplied my replacement.

FYI my replacement for a '02 Intrigue was $4004.00

I found CG&J inc to be the a very professional company. I was advised that if they did not have the radiator you needed in stock they would build one. I was also advised that if I brought my radiator to them they would duplicate it with a quality aluminum radiator to factory specs. and supply me with a warranty. They also advised that I should stay with an aluminum radiator because the engine was designed for that style of radiator. If you live in the southeast you should check with them before buying. The Country coach price was $3,200.00, The CG&J inc. price was approx... $900.00.
They were also familiar with the radiator problems with some motor homes. It was because of poor design and cheap built radiators used to reduce cost.

$900 is a fantastic price. If you can get a new radiator for that price, get it.
I hope it is well built...........
