Revolution service access

We have a 93 American Eagle with side radiator. I enjoy the service access at the rear. We have spotted a 2002 American Coach Revolution (330 Cummins/Freightliner) on line that is appealing to us. I notice in the photos that is a rear radiator unit.

Does anyone know if this MH has a swing out radiator or some other consideration for service access, or is it all through the bedroom floor?

Thanks.

JMHO, If you are used to the side rad, and do most of your own servicing , the rear rad will drive you nuts. Fellow next to us in an RV park had to replace the rad in his unit; can't remember all the details; but it required cutting the rear cap for access. That was the info from the manufacturer to the rad shop; CUT; the shop , to their credit did a great job, unless you knew the cut lines didn't belong you couldn't tell they were not factory, but! Not the best in my opinion.

The Revolution did not become part of the AC line until 2010. In 2002 it would have been listed under Fleetwood.

I own an 05 Revolution with the cat and rear radiator. My traveling partner has an 03 Revolution with a Cummins and the side unit. Each has advantages and disadvantages. The rear unit has a simpler fan system but is harder to replace if needed. If you take care of them you should not have an issue with either.

If the revolution has a rear closit, the floor also lifts up to gain access to the front of the engine. I have had no problem servicing belts and hoses from this hatch. On the rear rad coaches keeping the radiator clean is sooooo important as to not overheat
