GM/Workhorse 14,050 Class C Chassis
The all-new Chevy-Workhorse class C chassis is designed to perform more like an SUV "”not like a commercial van or truck. It has the comfort and friendliness of an SUV, such as easy entry and exit, a user-friendly dash and a driving position that gives you a sense of control while keeping you close to the road. Yet, it has the power to take you everywhere you want to go.
Its impressive 14,050 lb. GVWR payload frees you up to take along more supplies, equipment and toys to get the most out of your lifestyle. Best of all, you'll enjoy the peace of mind from owning a product backed by the number one combination in the motor home industry: GM Vortec™ engines and Workhorse.
We worked in partnership with GM to create a platform designed specifically for your RV with more convenience features than any other Class C on the market.
Space to move
Settle into the driver- or passenger-side captain's chair, and you'll immediately feel you're in a real motor home "” not a modified commercial vehicle. It has large foot wells, with more space to sit straight and stretch your legs. With its forward-mounted doghouse, moving from the captain's chairs to the living area is practically effortless. Plus, the wide step pad gets you in and out easier.
The chassis also includes many popular Chevy features like deep and wide door storage pockets, a console with a large storage area plus an additional power outlet for your electronic accessories.
Cherish every moment of the drive
We incorporated an advanced, short-arm independent front suspension, upgraded heavy-duty axles and a new rear stabilizer bar with a greater diameter than the competition. This combination improves driver confidence by eliminating body roll and road wander. Plus, the sharp turning radius gets you in and out of tight spots with ease- all to give you a comfortable ride reminiscent of an upscale SUV.
