We just went from a Monaco Knight 38PDQ w/o a tag, to our 45' Tiffin Zephyr on the Spartan K2 chassis with the tag. The big thing is the drive itself. The first time I saw a Semi coming up in the left hand mirror, I held on for the usual drama, but there was hardly any! The drive on windy days is also considerably better.
In summary and as our dealer told us, the difference in the drive from the Monaco to the Tiffin is about as much as it was from our 37' Winnebago gasser to the Monaco. .......Well worth the change!

Similar when we moved up from our 2014 40' non-tag Phaeton. We did get more room upstairs, but we lost room in the basement.

True. The manufacturer decides the axle combination for each coach. You can't order a specific coach with a specific axle set up. It is what it is. As a general rule, for DPs, 40' and under are non tag, 41' and over are tags. My last coach was 40' 11"...thus, since it was "40" it was not a tag.

The things I notice as being the biggest difference between the two is that the tag is less affected by wind and passing vehicles.
