I too think they have some typos there. I can't imagine how FCCC would make their XCR "raised rail" chassis and NOT include air suspension front and rear. It is entirely possible that it has front disc and rear drum brakes, both air-operated, because many DP chassis are built that way.

It would not make sense to have springs in the rear of a DP, and I know of NO rv chassis that has brakes operated by air AND hydraulics, as that would be "silly", IMO.

The 360 HP ISB and Allison 3000 combo has recently been added to the Tiffin "RED" chassis as an $8,000.00+ option over the standard 340 HP ISB and Allison 2500 combo previously offered by Tiffin.

FWIW, I too hope Mark will be assigned to write up this first Class A offering from Nexus. Sooner the better, in case FMCA is listening.

Thank you, Its been an absolutely unbelievably wonderful experience thus far. Nate, our rep has been with us every step of the way since we made up our minds and pulled the trigger late April after an outing in our current RV. We can email him and get an answer back within a day usually and sometimes within minutes and he has made us so comfortable with this process.. We have made changes on the fly added additions that were not on the menu. We will be at the plant for a few days for the RV change out, a tour going over everything as much as our brains can absorb and then we are out the door. Right now its just sort of going to the paint booth an we have been receiving pics some of which I have some enclosed from start to date........can't wait!!

Congrats to those of you who have purchased your new Bentleys! Looks like a really nice coach... and it's great to hear about your experiences with the buying process. Sounds like Nexus RV is really accommodating with changes and making the whole process pleasurable.

I'll be interested to follow this thread and hear reports from owners as you gain experience with your new coaches: initial reactions, impressions on the build quality, and longer-term experiences with them on the road.

Keep it coming!

LOL! What it lacks in comfort it makes up for in portability and versatility!
