All coaches riding on a Spartan Chassis will have IFS. As another noted Country Coaches as well.

I am sure there are others that folks will list here.

We have IFS on our Country Coach. Many people have commented on how remarkably small the turning radius is for our size coach. I am led to believe IFS means tighter turning radius. And our coach rides wonderfully. However, I bought a 2013 Wrangler 8 months ago and it drives great. The Jeep is straight axil.

So here is my comment. The engineers at Country Coach made a superb motorhome when they built ours. If you get a Country Coach with IFS I am sure you will be getting a great driving coach. The engineers at Jeep did a great job with straight axil on our car. I would guess that a great designed straight axil coach would drive better than a so so IFS one and vice versa. I used to have an old GMC motorhome that I dearly loved. It had 6 independently sprung wheels. Drove and rode fantastic. Alignments for all wheels a bit tough to get done right though.

Drive and the proof is in the driving.

This is not accurate. Our Revolution does not, yet it is on a Spartan chassis.

As of 2014 American Coach has switched to a Freightliner chassis, with IFS.
