Looking at new Super C

Next year we are looking at purchasing a new NeXus Phantom or the Dynamax Isata 5. Each have diesel engines one has a Cummins TD 6.7L I6 in a Dodge 5500 and the other one has a International Tera Star MaXX Force 7. I know the MaXX Force has had issues in the past but after researching it I can't find many complaints after 2014. They are both on 19,000lb chassis and we have pros and cons with each unit. We full time and reliability is a must. I haven't drove either one, I will do that before we buy. We now have a 2008 Damon Challenger 378 on a Work Horse chassis with 39,000 miles that we hopefully will be selling or trading it in.

My only question is where do you take the MaxxForce for service or repair? There are Cummins dealers and shops everywhere. Just a question since I am not familure with MxxForce.

Haven't looked at Dynamax, and haven't looked at Nexus in a while, but check to see if you are satisfied with the CCC.

What is CCC?

CCC is Cargo Carrying Capacity. OCCC is another unit of measurement and means Occupant & Cargo Carrying Capacity. There should be a Yellow DOT sticker inside one of the doors that will be the CCC or OCCC weights. It should also tell you if it includes water. If not, water will have to be to the cargo weight. In addition, and grey water or black water you carry will have to be considered as cargo.

Forest River had a Dynamax Forum where you can read posts by Dynamax owners.
I think you will find most are very pleased, although, you will also see some of the issues.
You will also find the Dynamax Plant Manager regularly posts.
As an owner ourselves we could not be happier......Bob

We are taking delivery of a Chateau 35 SF on Monday. We are so excited after camping the past 7 years in a Cedar Creek 5th wheel. All that setup work is gone with this Super C.

You can't go wrong with Cummings, or International. Both have very good engines, and chassis.

Don't forget about Jayco Seneca and Renegade Verona. We have the Seneca and love it. The Verona is a more powerful and plush version. That way you don't hardly have to pay attention to ccc or occc.
