Tradewinds LTC vs LE

Does anyone know the basic differences between an LE and an LTC. We are looking at 01-02's. The LE has an angled front entry door. Is the LE just a lower trim model with fewer bells and whistles? Thanks

I have the model 7390 with the angled door. The LTC is 4" longer, the interior is a little more ritzy and although they both run the same CAT 3126b engine the LTC is 330hp, while mine is 300hp. Not a big thing really on the HP, I could have mine programed up to 330, but am totally happy with the power and mileage the 300 gives me. Bought it used in November 2004 and have never had any major type problems. National built great coaches. That's why you hardly ever see either the diesels or gassers sitting on a lot You might want to check and see what chassis the LTC is on, mine is on a freightliner chassis. Mine is rated for pulling a 5000lb toad, not sure if the LTC is rated higher or not.

On the door of mine I get a lot of wind noise depending on the direction of the wind. I have found nothing I would giver her up for unless I won the lottery.

I have the 7390 LTC and yes it has a few more bells and whistles. I do have a bit of door noise too. Washer and dryer combo, real walnut wood cabinets, side by side fridge freezer with ice maker. Not sure what else. 7.5 Generac diesel gennie and 330 cat with side radiator. Love my '01 and we've had it since '10. We got it just when a number of things decided to go wrong and without the extended warranty, it got a bit expensive. Got one now from Cornerstone and am happy with it.

Hi Big Dog, What chassis is your LTC on? What's the tow rating?
