I'd suggest you contact American Coach. I'll bet you'll find them very accomodating. I know our 2011 is 53 degrees, but I also know there have been changes to the chassis over the years.

I think this is about length-to-wheelbase ratio, which is entirely different than wheel cut, which is the maximum angle you can turn the front wheels.

It's a Spartan chassis with the I-beam front axle, but I can't find a spec for the wheel cut. I think they were in the 53-55 degree range, but can't swear to it.

The question that needs to be answered if the Smallest turning radius? If the wheel Cut is 50 deg or 75 deg will that tell if you can make the turn thru the campground with the toad hooked up or will you find yourself unhooking and backing UP.

I called Workhorse and ask for What is the shortest Turning Radius of the W20,W22 and the W24. or the UFO chassis they didn't know. They had wheel CUT.

The chassis wheel cut, when combined with the chassis wheel base, defines the turning radius. That's assuming the body installed on the chassis does not inhibit the wheel cut in any way. So you have to answer the turning radius question differently for each wheel base length made for that chassis. I guess Workhorse didn't bother to calculate them all.

Per the response from Workhorse, They didn't know the turning radius for any of the chassis models they produced.

I can calculate the radius, or use the stick and chauk method in a parking lot and find the combined turning radius of the coach and chassis. My point is all you find is wheel cut when looking to compare different Motorhomes. Shortest turning radius is the information you could use.
Like a overpass height 4419mm or 14ft 6 inch when you have a 14ft 5inch load height!!!
