New Outlaw owner here! So, no OOO? I'd be in! I nominate Scarab0088 as our leader. From what I've seen in my short RV life so far, Steve is sure an Outlaw EXPERT!

Aww, shucks.

I am very thankful for everyone who has shared about their Coach, because I believe that we are only as strong as our group.

Safe travels

We're In!

This would be a great forum and Steve, I agree, you are the man for the job! Between you and Scott, the rest of us will always have the answers to our newbie questions. By the way, can't wait till the weather breaks and we can take our new Outlaw out, waiting is such a drag!

Hi everyone...I'm new to the site. My wife and I are about to retire from the Army...43yrs total service(21 for me and 22 for her).So we are ready to enjoy the RV life. We really want a Outlaw Class AToy Hauler because we have Harley we would like to haul (when not riding) and tow a vehicle. We really love the Outlaw. I'm struggling with the decision of the V10 or Diesel version...Does the diesel save that much more on fuel? Is the pulling power that big of a difference? Thanks

Rydout,



Please take a look at the linked threads in my post above yours to find more Outlaw Owners (we don't have a separate sub-Forum).

The Diesel was only available for a few years in the Damon era (Gen1).
For details see post #1 here: Class "A" Toyhaulers

The earlier Ford 6.8L V10 models were on a 22,000lb chassis, the Workhorse (8.1L V8/Allison trans) was 24,000lb and the Freightliner Front Engine Diesel was 27,000lb (5.9L from Cummins/Allison trans)

Owners of the Freightliner Outlaws do not see dramatically better power or mileage performance, but the GVWR is better. I blame this on not having the optimal gearing. But, it had airbag suspension and airbrakes...so obviously the selling prices of these units is measurably higher.

Reality is that each model chassis has its perks. Ford was, for years the most supple suspension and since 2011 is the only chassis used (since 2015 w/ 26,000lb GVWR). The Workhorse can provide the best MPG (mid to high 8's) and smooth operation with the big V8 and Allison 6 speed. The Freightliner FRED has Diesel functions (runs stronger but at lower speeds) and has a large capacity for aftermarket upgrades.

Best luck
