Considering trading my old 31.5 foot coach with the "other" p-30 190" WB chassis and am trying to determine if a newer coach with a 208" chassis will make the turn into my narrow tree lined driveway. On our short list is the Seabreeze LX and Tiffin Allegro in either the 30 or 32 foot version many of which come with the F-53 chassis. Closest dealer appox 4 to 5 hours away so a local test drive out of the question for now. Any comments? Thanks

DBro, Unless I'm mistaken you will find most all "I" beam straight axles have a wheel cut of 49 to 50 degrees. The only exception I'm aware of is the new Freightliner FRED chassis with the Hendrickson straight beam axle which has a 55 degree wheel cut. You will find most all IFS (independent front suspension) axles have a 55 to 56 degree wheel cut.
I'm sure someone on the forum more knowledgeable than I will correct this imformation if it's erroneous.

Best Regards, Jim
