Beaver Contessa Coach chassis is magnum but who really built it

We have a 1999 beaver contessa coach that needs a rotor assembly and caliper rebuild we need to know who we can get the parts from . We know it's Magnum chassis but they farmed the work out to others . I guess Freightliner is not who built ours. we need to know to find the parts we need. unless someone out there knows.

Magnum Chassis

Maybe this link will help. It decodes SMC chassis numbers. SMC built Magnum. Good luck!

My truck shop that does my service just phones Beaver and gets the info. Just had the rear brakes done last year.

Magnum Chassis

Magnum fabricated their own chassis. At that time, they used Eaton rear axles and Westport front axles - That is what my chassis has underneath

Any good heavy duty truck mechanic should be able to source your needed parts

Good Luck
