As mentioned:
Monaco, CC had a few. I also believe Foretravel had a 38' M11 engined tag for a few years too.

Happy hunting,

Yes, I too would never go back to a non tag coach!! The only negative for ME is that i did lose storage space.

Ditto (but I'm in a non-tag lol)

BlueBird made a 36' tag but that was in the 80's..still plenty running around but assuming you are not wanting one that old.

reasons for tag:
1) Breaking ability.2)stability. 3)carying capacity. 3) in my short life 54yo i have purchased a lot of junk and the next day regreted it. - I'm done regretting. 4)if you need a tool to work for you right , you need to look what pros are using ( in any field / trade ,cooks to bricklayers),, how many heavy duty trucks/buses are on the roads day in and day out with one axle? ever asked yourself that question? and if i wanted a moto on the back -well its just that , i can ! the option is there.

Ok, you answered almost all of the question, but why do you want a 37'/38' MH? When almost all of the tag models come in the 42' to 45' range? You will be surprised how easy the longer one's drive, and you will be able to get them into the same places as you can a 37/38' ! Not a lot of difference when you get to the 40+ range! If you have a 40' barn, then with the money you will save from paying a prem. for the shorter MH with a tag, add on to your barn! Wondering minds want to know? Rail!

thank you for your insight (pard the ire ,,, and the deep pain)
I say ire since i know very well what you are talking about. and pain since the difference is about 30K .
some time in life ( here is where i go painfully philosophic on you) you , well how do i say this politely have to accept that the beutifull thing next to you, your friend, your lover the mother of your two kids the thing they call your wife,, have a say so even if it is painfully wrong, even if there is no logical explanation(there isn't ) i have no say in an effort to keep mentally sane and in an effort to keep the household peace for many more years to come and maybe just maybe when she sees the light i can finally say ,,, are you ready ? drum roll please ,,, I TOLD YOU SO!!!!
hop you get my delicate painful situation.

Actually I have and I didn't find the tag axle ones we had to be that much, if any, better handling than the non-tag units. But then maybe it's due to the quality of the units too.

Our two most recent MHs have been from the same manufacturer, one tag one non tag. I notice the difference mostly when being passed by an 18 wheeler or in a severe cross wind...tag is much more stable in both situations.

I should also add that the tag's GVWR is over 14k more than the non tag.

I got my 2008 Allure 470 in 2014 for $193k. I'm third owner. I worked extremely hard to find a than 40 pusher w a tag. I knew about, and was willing to pay the premium necessary to pry such a rare motor home away from its owner. I think that ended up being at least $20k.

CC is the only one built in the 2000's, IMO built and designed well enough still to be so on the road and coveted. be careful of any CC built in late 2008 on. The QC had begun to fail and they were canabilizing coaches on the line to keep doors open.

I love my CC. It's still serviceable and I can call people for help. I played out a fantasy if I had the cash and could buy ANY MH I wanted. I looked at all MH that I liked and listed things about them I didn't like. I need a big engine, HD front end, IFS, and great carrying capacity. Considering everything I learned, I discovered the best MH I could buy w the attributes I wanted was the one I already have--in spite of being 8 1/2 years new.
