RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

Fifteen - 20 years ago there were a number of coaches that were not a fiberglass build. But today’s coaches Newmar, Tiffin etc as refderenced by the OP are Fiberglas with no slight intended, just fact.

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

That bear story is just crazy. A Prevost owner would simply reach down for the bottle kept in the leg pouch, open the side window and pepper spray that bear. Even a bear would know that and would look for the next fiberglass coach silly!

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

I mean no disrespect but you cannot compare a Newmar Of any style or type to a Prevost! One is a bus while the other is a fiberglass motorhome. Mr. Mark said how a Prevost has front and rear bumpers and folks that is huge. Have you seen videos of a fiberglass coach in an accident with fiberglass flying everywhere? No fiberglass on a Prevost! Again, no disrespect it just is what it is.

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

The number of Prevost service centers across the country is critical. If you have a problem you want to know there’s a service center. . Add that to the number of converters across the country who will work on your Prevost and it’s a BIG deal. I’ve read so many stories about dealer networks across the country that will put you off for weeks and some for months. And these may well be the same dealer you bought your motorhome from? I’ve never heard a Prevost owner talk about service problems! You get a lot buying a Prevost, it’s more than just a pretty face. And your price range can get you a nice one for sure!

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

Tom/Barb you are absolutely right and I have no argument. A Prevost is a different thing compleatly. All I’m saying is the look, the feel and the safety are without equal. It’s a matter of what is wanted and I would never demean another’s ride. Far too many great people out there driving all kinds of coaches. And we judge each other in the way we accord ourselves not on what we drive.

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

There are a number of Prevost converters and there is not a bad one in the mix. Find one you like and that fits your budget and drive it. You’ll not be disappointed!

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

A Prevost is the Best of the Best of the Best! It's a bus, built of steel, aluminum and chrome! If there is a safer vehicle on the road I've not heard of it. To drive and/or ride in a Prevost is to say there is nothing it can compare to. Everything that goes into a Prevost is the best money and technology can offer on the most solid platform there is. There are many folks very fond of Newell and they build a fine coach. But its a coach, it is not a bus and the difference is huge!

RE: Air brakes on Class A diesel pusher

Well stated Exexutive and it can be confusing no doubt about that. Many excellent videos on the subject as well.

RE: Air brakes on Class A diesel pusher

Hi RH, A tag adds stability while underway and allows the coach to carry morre weight. And yes the tag wheels have air brakes to help in braking. You can also lift the tag axle to put more weight on the drive wheels for better tracking to get out of mud etc. The tag can also be lifted to allow for tighter turns. You will find some parks having a sign saying “lift tax axle”. These is to stop the dragging/skidding effect a tag can have, especially on blacktop. Hope that helps.

RE: Air brakes on Class A diesel pusher

My reference to tag axle had to do with turning the Jake/exhaust brake off during inclement weather.

RE: Air brakes on Class A diesel pusher

You guys are correct, air brakes do not turn on and off, they are constantly on with the engine start. Most diesel pushers have a gauge or trouble lights on the dash showing that brakes and airbags are fully aired up. As for the slowdown you've noticed its your exhaust break or Jake brake that is slowing you down. You should see a three position switch on the dash allowing you to set it to High (maximum of breaking), Low and off. Most folks leave the exhaust brake on at all times EXCEPT in icy or wet conditions. Especially true if your coach has a tag axle.

RE: Newmar quality

Newmar, Tiffin and Winnebago are on top of the class A world, especially in gassers. I give Newmar and Tiffin a couple points above because they are family owned and the families are heavily involved in the day to day building process. They also have a strong reputation for standing behind their product.

RE: Is there “Motorhome storage while traveling”?

Hi guys and thanks for you input. I especially agree from the standpoint of staying in the coach. But it’s nice to know the option is there for short term storage as needed. I didn’t know that was an option. Thank you one and all.

Is there “Motorhome storage while traveling”?

We will be traveling and would like to take our coach. Two placing we’ll be stopping is with family. They would like us to stay with them and that’s fine with us as well. The question is, do RV parks offer storage where you can park the coach without services and just pay a storage fee? Thanks
