RE: Jayco is entering the Diesel Pusher gang

Compared to our Newmar Ventana 3709 we had which is similar in length and price... - GVWR: V - 37300; E - 32000 The higher GVWR of the Newmar indicates a higher payload or a stouter build or both. In any event I consider it an indication of higher quality. Not that many jaspers pay any attention to payload. My guess they wanted to stick with a Spartan chassis since most if not all Entegras are built using this chassis. This is the shortest chassis Spartan offers. It is usually an upgrade over a Freightliner chassis. As for a stouter build, not sure that is true. They might have similar dry weights, but obviously the payload would be much less on the Embark.

RE: Jayco is entering the Diesel Pusher gang

Compared to our Newmar Ventana 3709 we had which is similar in length and price: - Length: Ventana 3709 - 37'10"; Embark 37MB - 37'10" - Wheelbase: V - 242"; E - 236" - GVWR: V - 37300; E - 32000 - Chassis: V - Freightliner with Comfort Drive w/360HP Cummins & 3000 Allison Tran; E - Spartan with Independent Front Suspension w/360HP Cummins & 3000 Allison - Towing: V - 10K; E - 10K - Fuel Cap: V - 100 gallon; E - 100 gallon - Fresh Water Cap: V - 105 gallon; E - 100 gallon Not saying Jayco is anything close to Newmar, but on paper the chassis is fairly close to our Ventana and with independent front suspension the ride should be very good on the Embark. Here are the specs on the Chassis: http://www.spartanmotors.com/rv-range/jayco-embark-37/
