Ford
Chey
Ram

They're all good.

We've owned both Freightliner and Spartan chassis and both Cummins and Cat diesels, I wouldn't give a seconds thought as to which one was "better".

This is a question with no right or wrong answer, only opinions - and we all know what they say about opinions.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Thanks for the info.
My current DP is on a Spartan chassis, and it's always been solid.
I'll be trading in for a new DP next year, and I want to get some opinions before I buy.

Spartan and Freightliner both offer a range of size/feature chassis.

Kind of like asking if GM or Ford is better. Both offer a range of products. A Ford Fiesta and Lincoln Navigator are both Ford products.

Look for engine/transmission/suspension choices that meet your needs.

PREVOST! Nothing else. Now, what's your budget?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I have only had Freightliner not saying they are the best, but it seems to be easy to get parts and service nationwide once they get your vin# in the system.

10 airbags...Prevost, Newell, Foretravel, Monaco Roadmaster which includes 2004+ Beaver, HR, Safari all on the RR10S for the handling and 9,000+ of CCC. The newest Monaco is NOT on a RR10S chassis.
