Bring 'em on on ! We welcome the competitive challenge. With the likes of quality producers, such as Fleetwood, they don't stand a chance! LOL

Thanks, guys, for the info on the coach. I was familiar with the MB engine. Actually more familiar with another outstanding German product, Deutz diesel engines.
My exposure to them was in log skidders.
Tuf stuf.
Thanks again, Cheers.

A pal has a 2007 Tiffin Phaeton on a Freightliner chassis with a Mercedes Diesel. It's a rear radiator of about 330 ho, if I remember correctly.

And if you think just because their built in America, that this means good quality control, you're vastly mistaken? Most RV manufacturers have the poorest quality control of any manufacturer. Many of them are considered to be backyard/garage home built operations. Go visit many of the factories and you'll see what I'm saying is true. Talk to the production line workers and they'll tell you they are on a time schedule for quantity, not quality.
