Almost all of them. Mostly in the larger engines. Mine is a 455 hp and has side rad.
My experience has been the 300-350 hp size usually are rear radiator.

Check out Alpine Coach. All models have the radiator on the side, even their 34 footer with a base 400 hp ISL. That one must go like stink!
They build their own chassis, put together like an over-the-road diesel tractor.

Alpine has a forum here too!

Tiffin's Allegro Bus comes with a side radiator while the Phaeton comes with a rear radiator. I really like the side radiator. It stays cleaner and it's a whole lot easy to access the engine compartment. The side radiator was one of my "must haves" when looking for a coach. Newmar also runs side radiators on the Dutch Star and Mountain Aire, but not the Kountry Star. I'm pretty sure that all of the 2004 and up Vectras and Horizons are now side radiator also but the Meridian and Journey are still rears.
