2005 Beaver Santiam 38PDQ

What is the tow capacity of a 2005 Beaver Santiam 38PDQ with the C7 350hp Cat engine? Are they considered a good coach?

You can download a brochure here

I've heard very good things about Beaver Coaches. A 2004 would be a good year>>> no emissions stuff. Cat engine is a plus.

We looked at a new 2005 Beaver Santiam back in 2005. It was a beautiful coach with solid cherry cabinets. The brochure says it on the Monaco RR8R Roadmaster chassis, but if I recall it had oversized front airbags for a better ride, compared to my 2005 Monaco Diplomat with the RR8R chassis.

The one we looked at had the Caterpillar C-9 400HP. Looking at the brochure, it does say Cat C-9 400HP.

We got within $5K of making deal, but it didn't happen. We ended up buying the Diplomat.
