We are looking at the Tour Master T-40B as our final Motorhome purchase and not being near a dealership, the brochure I have gives little information on vehicle weights. Other than the GVWR being 32,400.00, what are the others? Also any feedback on over all impression of the coach, living space, handling, etc. We are looking at the Mercede 330 as we like to travel to Mexico and this is a pre-emission engine. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

The MBE is no longer offered in the 2008 Tour Master.
The only engines offered are the standard engine of Cummins ISC 8.3L 360HP and optional Cummins ISL 8.9L 425HP.
You can check this at the Gulf Stream website and also at the Frieghtliner website.

Ron,
I ran the VIN with FCC and they confirmed the engine to be the MBE 330. Apparently Gulf Stream bought a number of these chassis and have depleted their inventory. It was advertised as a "pre-emission" engine, which caught my eye.
Hyall, sounds like a winner to me and it is encouraging to hear from others with positive reports.
Thanks to all,
Bob
