suspension question

Think of buying a country coach intrige or allure 36 or 38 ft in the year of 1999 or 2000.I understand that country coach went to independent front suspension in 2000,can anyone tell me if this makes a difference in the ride and or handling of the coach.If it makes a difference I will step up to a 2000 model or later.

Thanks

The difference is like night and day. By all means, if you can, go with the independent front end. If you ever have a blow out on the front, it is much easier to handle. Another plus is the sharper turning radius.

I think the change to IRS may have even been 2001. Our coach has it and the turning radius for a huge vehicle is really amazing. Not so much on solid front axle.

It was so good that my friends sold a 98 they had bought new with less then 5k miles on it and bought a new 2000 Intrigue when the IFS first came out
