But the worse part is this is their replacement coach for a "Lemon" coach that spent more time in the shop than they owned it (kind of hard to do).John R.

Gota love those RV`s!!! John the truck is coming along!!
How heavy are those RV's? I always wondered if they were heavier than they looked.
Have fun and be safe
Well, depending on the length of that particular unit(which could be '33 - '38) the GVWR is either 22,000 or 24,000. Of course that's the gross rating and not curb weight. So would the curb weight be around 20k? The GVWR of the front axle is 7500, 8500, or 9000.
If I spent that much money for a MH, & it conked out that soon....I wouldn`t be a happy camper!

had a few, being delivered to dealer from manufacturer not make it, and need towing. I couldn't tell, is that a pusher or front gas? Had a 3 axle pusher scale at 42,000. He was 15,000 on the front with a 7ft. set back axle. Towed him 125 miles over two mountains to Phoenix. Darn hard to stop, so I am going to rig up a brake set up like they use on the piggy-back transport of new trucks.

This lumux is a gas (454? up front I did not look at it close only from underneath) with four huge slide outs, two each side like you see on the left.
I stopped by the nexy day and it's rather huge inside they thought they were waiting for a fuel pump, they were still there today.John R.

I like that multi-colored Peterbilt that's towing that hunk-of-junk.
Good to see that rig in action!
