Yes,
At either Foreforums.com thru a link.
Or: http://www.allthingsforetravel.com/foretravel-model-specifications-and-floorplans/

Massive amount of factory info, the spec sheets and floor plans by year.

I love my 1998, 36’, U295, custom mid-door.

1 saw a 99 320 36 ft
Online. Very nice
But no dinette
Table and chairs and the chairs are cheap metal folding! I was surprised that these units have 275/80 tires. Does it overload the front axle? A nice fellow in the FT forum sent me his phone number and he is a wealth of info. I was impressed with the specs. We have an 08 Dynasty and a 88 Bluebird so are used to quality.

I was surprised there is no Jake Brake. I know it has an Allison retarder My experience with the older Allison is that the retarder quickly heats up the tranny fluid.

A unit with table and metal folding chairs, might have been done by a PO.
Mine had a booth table and 2 benches, I removed the forward bench, but sometimes will carry the 2 wooden folding chairs that came with the unit. Those with the extended table leaf is very nice for more than 2 of us.

I've seen photos of tables removed and a wall bankette with a couple of loose chairs, that allow both chairs to face the window.


Front axle weights have not been an issue I've ever read on the early coaches, of the 90's- early 2000's. I have weighted a number of times, and have lots of load range left, with the tire size and load range letter. Maybe more amazing is the right/left equal balanced each time I have weighted. My U295 is the smaller engine, and 3060R transmission, than on the 320's.


Yes a retarder heats the transmission fluid, but it's never been an issue for me in 55,000 miles, yet. The gauge is there to show temp, and the 6 position joystick allows you to back out of the retarder if you need. The 6 position stick, is like down hill speed control.



The transmission computer is set up to lock out the retarder if temps ever go too high. Love the quiet nature of the retarder and it works all the way to the 10mph default when it disengages.


There is so much info and those with way more knowledge on the owner's group site. Good luck in your search.
