Gary: Just to keep the facts straight... The WCC UFO (R26) chassis was initially advertised
as having a diesel engine option, but that never became a reality
. Originally it was going to have a Cummins, and later that was changed to Maxxforce, but none were ever made except for the prototype chassis for testing. I think the problem was that WCC couldn't fit the diesel engine and keep the totally flat floor promised by the UFO. Therefore, the UFO was only built with the 8.1L gas motor.
It is true that WBGO built the same two models (Destination and Latitude) on a similar diesel pusher chassis, but that was a straight rail chassis built by FCCC.
