Can anyone give me advice as to the 2021 Spartan chassis vs Freightliner .......
just a question of curiosity, and one that you may want to ask, fwiw.
I now when freightliner came up with the NA chassis, the chassis was too high. Newmar needed to have the body lowered in the chassis. So as part of their production for NA coaches, newmar would build a lower frame rail between the front and rear axles. Then remove the original freightliner chassis frame rails, so the body can be lowered in the frame. btw, this is not all that uncommon. There were other RV manufacturers, I believe, whom have had similar processes.
I am curious as to if Spartan chassis are built to accommodate the lower body builds for the NA, or if Spartan chassis are also being modified same as their freightliner counter parts?
