Then I started looking at '09-'10 Phaeton models thinking that I could get essentially the same length but a couple of years newer plus get some of the more current layouts. My concern is giving up the 425HP for the 360HP in the Phaeton. For those of you who have or ever owned one of the tag axle Phaetons, did you ever feel the motor was a little undersized for that size rig?
NO Absolutely NO do not buy a 42 tag with only a 360 ISC power and
ESPECIALLY NO if plan on towing a load like you suggest
you will live to regret it mark my experienced words

I wouldn't buy anything that size with less than 400 Hp. My rig came with the 350 ISL and it was fine but my GCWR is 35,000lbs and it was a little under powered on the steep passes. I had it uprated to 400 Hp and gained 200 ft/lbs of torque and it made my coach into a fire breathing dragon. Doesn't even know that it has a 4500lbs pickup truck tied to it.
