Class A rated to tow 7000 lbs???

What older model, 34 ft., class A motorhomes, other than Monaco, are rated to tow a 7000 lb toad? 1995 to 2000 vintage. I could save some time by searching for one of those. Stay with a diesel pusher type. Thanks

Newmar , on a Spartan chassis had a 10,000 TTC in 99, the same coach on a F/Liner is only 5,000. I assume that the same is true for other years.
Not sure if Newmar was producing a shorter DP in those years.

Country Coach, available in Magna, Affinity, and Intrigue models. Very nice coaches.
Holiday Rambler makes some nice coaches. They are very similar to Monaco and were eventually bought out by Monaco.

Most diesel pushers, regardless of brand, will be rated for 10,000 lbs or more. Most gas chassis coaches will not exceed 5000. Front engine diesels are closer to the gas chassis than the pushers.
Both Freightliner and Spartan chassis are nearly always spec'ed for at least 10,000 bs tow capacity, and that covers just about every brand of coach besides Monaco/HR (Roadmaster chassis).

My 1997 Imperial is rated for 10,000 lbs but the original hitch was only 5,000 lbs. When I inspected it before towing anything I found that it was ready to fall off with the mounting brackets almost torn off. Had a local welding shop install a 10k hitch and added supports. Moral of the story, inspect what is on the coach and verify the towing capacity.
