Regarding the coach I just bought (go easy on me since I OWN it now :-)
I just found out from HME how the chassis was delivered to Calumet Coach...
Cummins 6B 5.9 230 HP at 2500 RPM with charger and cooler
Allison MD3060 transmission 5 speed automatic
Rockwell rear axle (5.86 ratio on rear drive axle medium speed)
Hendrickson rear suspension HA400 34,000 lb
I was surprised at the engine size as I "guessed" a commercial vehicle with a 34,000 GVW would have more power but I'm hoping it will do OK with that transmission. I wonder how it's going to drive? I think you can put Banks Power on that motor - any opinions? I probably won't repower it - not for a while at least - as long as it gets me from here to there I'm happy - but I think this is going to be even slower than my old 8V71. I probably still would have bought it knowing the engine size because of the slide outs, lift gate, hydrolic levelors, electronics and genset that comes with it.www.calumetcoach.info/pics
