Back in the Top 10 !!! ???

Well, I see a lot of folks using this forum:

Workhorse and Chevrolet Chassis Motorhome Forum (55 Viewing)

Just another 3600 or more posts and we can springboard ourselves back in that #10 spot.

We were the #1 forum for a long time until we were passed by the Winnebago Owners. Since 2010 however we've been on the down slope like we were on skis.

That said, we're probably #11.

It's such a pity that Workhorse is no longer offered in a motor home chassis. If we could have found a suitable coach with a Workhorse, we may have ended up with a gasser instead of a diesel. We're really happy with what we bought, but I just didn't care for the ford engine.

Hit_the_Rhod; Your observation is valid. The only option for motorhome buyers today is; "What color black do you want your motorhome chassis" and I think that's a crying shame. Workhorse attempted to move back into the business however the big dog on the block said "Woof" and it didn't happen because the investors were scared away.

It was proposed that a 16K and a 22K chassis would have been offered to the OEM coach builders and under consideration was that the chassis would have been powered by both a ~GM 5.0L and the PSI 8.8L gasoline engine.

As of the last time we spoke, the parting comment was; "Never say never, but not in the near future." So we wait with our 13 year old chassis and we stay the line.

When we were shopping for an RV, Workhorse chassis was one of the things "I" wanted.


But I did also keep in the back of my mind if there was a floor plan that the wife liked and it was on the "Fix Or Repair Daily" chassis I would probably cave.


But "WE" got both what we wanted.


LOVE the Workhorse.

That's what I wanted too and way above my paygrade, I left the color and floorplan to the BOSS.

Even now with the full body paint job ... yep the BOSS picked the colors.

I count myself very lucky that I ended up with a Workhorse.

Did you see the 2012 Workhorse chassis advertised in the classifieds?

http://www.irv2.com/rvclassifieds/sh...chassis&cat=23

$18,000.00, but less than 100 miles. Would make an interesting swap if you had a perfect coach, but a bad drive train!

Favoring Chevy's, the Workhorse was the obvious choice for me. Owned from 2010 to present and no complaints.
My P32 454/4L80 combo has been solid performer - replaced the calipers/rotors, hoses/belts and tensioner. Pretty normal stuff, reasonably priced, and readily available.
My only chassis related 'failure' was an 'AutoPark' RGS failure that took 10 min to fix with my $35 onboard spare, but it was 90F and I had to lay on hot pavement along the road in SC - happy to report that I survived it.
I'll be keeping my P32 Workhorse for a while longer :>)

I'd be interested in seeing the VIN#. AFAIK, there weren't any 2012 W-22s BUT that chassis might have just broke over the 2011-2012 model year and might be one of the last of the Mohegans.
