Looking for a new Coach

We currently own a 1994 Gulf stream diesel pusher and really love it. So selling it will be difficult but I am wanting to tow more in the future so I need something with a little more breaking.


Is there a site to research coaches to find ones built from 1995-1999 with 400+ Hp. all I know is foretravel and some monacos In a perfect world I would love to have a toter but 100k is out of the price range. I would love to have a 400+ hp that is 36-38 foot but those are not to easy to find at least i cannot.


Any Ideas of models or place to research or buy with a search option of 400+HP


thank you

I don't think there is a specific when we bought our first class A it had a 330 cat that pulled with ease our Ford Edge. Presently have a coach with Cummins 450 able to tow up two 10k if needed. How much is your tow going to weigh?

Most diesel motorhome chassis aren't rated for more than 15k towing. Both Spartan and Freightliner usually top out at 15k, but they maybe have some extra heavy duty models that go higher.

Our Dutch Star has a 6,000# hitch, but Spartan says we can go to a 10,000# one if we want. Maybe the newer ones go higher?
