Super C

Iím interested to hear from anyone who has or had a Super C. Wife and I are considering a 2017 Dynamax Dx3 Bunkhouse, switching from a DP. What are some Proís and Conís on these rigs?

I have owned two Dynamax Super Cs. I have also owned a small A and a big tag axle A. I was always more comfortable driving the super C. I honestly think it was just from preference.

Pros for the A,
1. Better view out the front
2. More usable living area
3. Quieter driving as the engine being in the back.

Pros for the C
1. Chassis heat and cooling is for efficient as it is right there
2. Easier to find shops to do the maintenance on them. As some shops wonít work on DPs.
3. Looks

I imagine there are a lot more pros and cons out there. I am not saying the Dynamax is a bad unit now. However they used to be a great unit prior to 2013 when they sold out to a Forest River I believe it was.

I donít have a lot of experience with them but I would also consider a Renegade if I wanted to upsize again. Drove one and it was sweet. The interior isnít all mirrors and lights but pretty nice.

I agree with the above plus much safer as you driving a truck and not a front end fabricated cage. Also I had 4 different diesel pushers and they all had flex in the body.
Not the Super C

The only con that I can think of is the poor turning radius of Freightliner M2's.

Before we bought our first super c we rented several coaches to see what worked best for us. Our first super C was a Dynamax Grand Sport 380 based on the M2 heavy chassis. Likes:
1. Nice woodwork
2. Easy to work on - engine, trans. and other mechanical systems
3. Easy to drive except in the mountains
4. (3) exits - driver and passenger doors as well as the main coach
5. Robust chassis vs. the Class A's that we rented - both gas and DP
Dislikes:
1. Even though Dynamax did a nice job on the interior some of their wiring practices were very poor. I had to redo the main power panel under the coach.
2. Could only sleep 5
3. Small fresh water 90Gal, Grey 45Gal & Black 45Gal
4. Exhaust brake
5. Power - 350HP & 860 ft lbs torque was low for this coach
6. 7mpg
Last year we updated to a Haulmark 43ft super C
Likes:
1. Sleeps 8 without anyone on the floor
2. Class 8 truck - no comparison to the M2 or Class A
3. 56,000GVW and towing capacity up to 40,000lbs
4. Drives like it is on rails, even in a stiff cross wind
5. 2 stage engine brake - works great in the mountains
6. 8mpg on average
7. Build quality is much better than our 2007 Dynamax
8. Ride is very smooth and quiet. The cab rides on its own suspension system and the seats are air ride. Very easy to carry on a conversation even though the 14L engine is right in front of you.
9. Safety! - engine is out front
Dislikes:
1. Turning radius - you better plan you escape route in advance

Get a Renegade Super C on a Frieghtliner Cascadia Chassis or a comparable Volvo. If you are looking to go big RV Trader is listing a 2008 45 foot Renegade Classic AND a 2009 31 foot Renegade Stacker Trailer for $192,000. The RV alone is worth that much.

Google the manufacturer of whatever you are interested in. Every day I read about people regretting their purchase. You truly get what you pay for with a Super C. I have been looking for about 6 months for one. Good luck! 🕶

We looked for over a year, and when the right one gently used came up, we pounced quickly.
