tag axle

I am looking at country coaches and I see a lot of 40' tag axels, what would be the benefit? I assume better driving but a loss of storage??
any info appreciated.

I don't have a tag axle... maybe next time.

My understanding is much smoother ride, more stable to drive, and certainly capable of carrying more weight.

I have a 2004 40' Allure with a tag axle, I agree with the above statements. Better ride more stable, higher weight carring capacity, some loss of storage. Without the tag you may have more storage space, but if you fill it on a 40' non tag dp you will probable be over the weight limit.

That's 2 of the reasons i went with a 42. If you can fit a 40, you can put a 42 in the same spot.
