Camp Freightliner

For those who have been to Camp Freightliner (South Carolina), is there any benefit to attending the camp for non-freightliner owners or is most of the information specific only to that particular chassis?

You would learn a lot about maintenance, air systems, tires, brakes, etc. that would be relevant to most any DP chassis. I found it to be money and time very well spent.

+1 on Crabby Mike. You'll pick up a raft of valuable generalized info that will convert well from one large DP chassis to another. But all information will be presented based on Freightliner construction. Other chassis may have appliances located in different places, or have systems designed with slightly different features.

Having said that, you'll find CF valuable. I've attended twice, and learned much on both occasions. Worth the trip.

Worth the trip. Worth the price. Every Chassis has the same components they may just be in different locations on the frame. How do you know your chassis is not a Freightliner ? Many MFG claim to produce their own chassis. But...... I doubt they did. Seems the major DP pushers chassis have been made Spartan and Freightliner. There may be others.... safe travels ed

Camp freightliner provided a lot of good information to me a couple of years ago but it is set up to cover many issues and some of the information provided may not apply to your RV. For instance he does talk about engines - mine is a Cat and there were many questions/answers about Cummins & Detroit & Mercedes as well as the Cat. Mine is older and some time was spent on the newer engines that require DEF. Overall well worth the time & $$ in my opinion.
