40' tag axle

Are there any current model DP's that are 40' or shorter with a tag axel? If not,
anything on the horizon? I have seen commercial busses with tag axel that look like they are less than 40'.....

Dutch Star has a front axle loading problem. Very near or over max without full fuel, water and two passengers.

Yup, 2016 Aspire 40p. I don't know if this is the first year for it or if it's on earlier models.

FWIW, be aware that a model 40 coach (tag or not), will be more than 40'. I say this because some states require a different driver's license for any coach over 40'.

Interesting Ron, I never have heard of that one..........always thought most all states went by the weight of it. What states go by the length ? Just wondering and learning.

Entegra is 40' 6", Newmars are 40' 9". Therefore are classified as 40'. In Calif. It is classified as 40' at 41' now you need a different license.
