Phaeton Suspension

Ready to upgrade ... looking at a Phaeton

Can anyone tell me if the 40 foot Phaeton comes with, or ever came with, a chassis that has IFS?

No IFS on the Phaetons. You have to go up to the Allegro Bus or Zephyr for that in the Tiffin line.

One of the reasons I moved from my Phaeton to the Bus. But! I thought that the Spartan chassis offered IFS but maybe that may only be available with the tag axle models.

The Allegro Bus offered IFS as an option in the 2005 model year. Prior to that it was all solid axle. In 2006 IFS was made standard equipment. Regardless of which chassis you choose - Freightliner, Spartan, or Powerglide - you will be getting IFS on a Bus.

The Phaeton has always come with a solid front axle. Recently they began to offer Spartan as well as Freightliner but they are all solid axle and rear radiator, unlike the Bus, which has side radiator.
