Many RV makers are already jumping on the Chevy cab/chassis because of Ford's announced drop of the E-Series. And if the Chevy chassis is ever dropped, the gap between Class C and Class A will become even wider.

Safe travels
I think perhaps Ford will be relying on the F550, saw one on this forum recently with the 6.7 diesel.

Here it is Thor calls it a Super C, not so sure about that, it's alot less truck and $$$ then a Senaca super C. Looks like a nice C to me http://thormotorcoach.com/news/Super...Class-C-RV.php

My buddy just purchased a Tiffin Allegro on an F53 chassis. His last coach was a Monaco Monarch full wall slide on a WH W22. Right off the bat he had the Banks Kit installed on the new rig. The W22 was box stock. So his first trip in the Allegro was from Carlsbad CA. To Portland Oregon. When he returned from that trip I asked him how the rig handled and drove. Both he and his wife said they missed their WH chassis. I owned a W20 for 10 years. Put 50k on it with nothing more than the usual problems. Great rig. Plenty of quiet power. You can see what I replaced it with. The 8.1 GM coupled with the Allison tranny is a power house

Another nice feature of the W24 chassis is they also lowered the motor so there is almost no hump between the seats. Mine is maybe two inches high. I also like the Allison grade brake.

I've got 98000 miles on my 05WH Admiral 33' SE, with no problems since the brake recall in 07. Also it's on a 228" W22 chassis. It's our last home.

I have 2004 Southwind with the WH chassis and it has 128,000 miles on it.
So far the 8.1 chevy and Allison trans have been a great combination and has been very reliable. If I was looking for a new motorhome and found one with a WH chassis, that would be my choice..

Don't let the recalls scare you off, all car, truck and motorhome manufacturers are faced with issuing recalls to correct one problem or another.

I have a 2008 Damon Challenger on a W-22 Workhorse with about 38,000 miles. I have only had to replace an oxygen sensor on the exhaust. I like the transmission grade brake it helps on long down hill runs.
