What are the pros and cons on the R4 vs R8 chais's? I'm looking at a motorhome that has the R-4 with the 5.9 300hp engine and 5 speed transmiision. Gross weight is 26,500 and combined of 33,000 I'm sure my combined weight will be well under 30,000lbs. How will this compare to my workhorse chasis? as far as pulling grades? mpg in cruise. How bouut the 5 speed vs the 6 speed. As far as the 4 bag vs the 8 bag chasis, I'm more concerned about the ride, the nhandling. thanks for the info.
