Just finished today with all details on ordering my new Bentley. Everyone has been easy to work with. I went to the factory last month to take a look at the Bentley. The quality is very nice and we did a lot of upgrades. I think it is very nice coach. Will share pictures as we go thru the build. They have a start date of August 25th!

Beautiful coach! We have been thinking about the Bentley...so glad it's been a good experience. What upgrades did you get? We're still trying to learn about this whole process.

Radiator placement is not up to Cummins, it's up to the chassis manufacturer and what the house builder specifies. Cummins specifies the air requirements and the cooling requirements, then the chassis manufacturer matches or exceeds them. Cummins doesn't care about the radiator placement as long as it meets or exceeds the cooling specs.

I am afraid I have other information.....and I am pretty sure you will not find a side radiator in an ISB size engine on any motor home because in that size its too cost prohibitive but it is an option on the ISC and ISL.
