Welcome to irv2. I had an 01 35u Chieftain and put 62,000 miles on it which included all 49( drive able ) States and all 10 Canadian Provinces. I had the Ford so I can't comment on the engine you're considering but the MH was GREAT.

Some Workhorse chassis have had problems with heat near rear plugs. Seems to be caused by lack of adequate air flow from front. People have added ducting to put air to the area after replacing plug wires. The autopark brake can also be an issue, but there's an expert on the issue here on the Forum. If you like the layout, all the parts work, and there's no obvious leaks or issues, go for it!

IF it actually has an Allison tranny( 5 or 6 speed ), it will be a W series Workhorse chassis. ALL of the W20 &W22 chassis (the sixth digit in the chassis vin # will be a "6" ) were subject to a Bosch Brake caliper RECALL, which you will want to VERIFY has been completed BEFORE you buy it.

Suggest you visit the Workhorse Forum here on iRV2 to get more specific info about the chassis. WELCOME to iRV2.com!
