It's time to hit the hay in Iowa!

For 2010 they realized that they had made a rocket in 2009 so they downsized the engine to a 340 hp diesel with only 660 ft-lbs of torque. The 2009's are hard to get, they don't come up for sale very often.

Here's one that just came up for sale at Lichtsinn Motors, just a mile down the road from the Winnebago factory. He's got the price too high but will probably come down $20-25K.

Dimensions and Capacities

  • The overall dimensions of a C7 engine are a length of 42.9 inches, width of 38.8 inches and height of 38.2 inches. The approximate dry weight is 1,425 lb. Engine oil capacity is 4.75 gallons or 6.75 gallons with the optional deep sump oil pan. Cooling system capacity -- engine only -- is 3.99 gallons. Cat C7 engines produced in 2007 or later require the use of ultra low sulphur diesel -- ULSD -- fuel.

Power Ratings

  • The Cat C7 was available with the following horsepower ratings: 210, 230, 250, 275, 300, 330, 350 and 360 hp. Torque ratings ranged from 520 up to 925 lb-ft. The 201, 230 and 250 hp. ratings were available in either a low torque or high torque option. The choice of torque options allowed different transmissions, which are rated by torque capacity, to be matched with the C7. The 330 through 360 horsepower ratings were only available in RV and firetruck applications.

Holy cow, man! You move fast! Which Journey is it? I'm curious about this. Year? Engine size? How's the power?

It looks beautiful, congratulations!

My internet sleuthing tells me that that is a 2005 Journey 34H with lots and lots of options and about 46,000 miles. Here's the specs on the optional upgraded 2004 C-7 350 hp diesel (whew-peak 860 ft-lbs of torque-nice):

Hang in there, man. You can get through this. It's a grieving process. I'm sure the little winnie will find a new home and be very happy. Meanwhile, you've got one very nice looking MH there.

I really hope so but reading about loose shocks bolts, stripped out and broken TV antennas, RV won't start because of the way WGO mounted a bank of fuses, schwintek slides, RV's grossly out of alignment etc etc; has me wondering what will be wrong with mine.
