Rivals the finest bus conversions with build quality, fit and finish, technology and durability.This is Continental Coach's finest model, the Elegance, not just a Continental Coach (which was the base model).This unit has a front master suite and a rear bedroom that was built to easily convert to an office or bonus space.

  2. Hello guys, long time lurker first time posting here. I have a 2005 Freightliner Classic w/14L Detroit 60 Series, 10 spd Ultrashift. I get a "No Data Link" alert after the truck is washed even when the hood is kept closed. When I get the alert the Tach, speedo, oil press, coolant temp, and voltage gages all are dead. After sitting 20 minutes or so it all goes back to normal. Fortunately when this happens it still starts and shifts. I have glanced over the connectors and harness and sure don't see anything that would indicate an issue. I had the dealer look at it and they say they can't find anything wrong, they claim the weather packing on the harness and connectors look good and there are no fault codes stored in memory. I know sooner or later I will run into a rain and not sure what will happen... If any of you Freightliner owners have experienced this or have any good ideas on where to concentrate I would appreciate it. Thanks, DMK
  3. Hi! The time has come for us to sell our rig, so we wanted to share the details here. We're selling our Augusta Luxe 42MD and our Freightliner M2 truck. It's a gorgeous mid-den fifth wheel, 43' long, with beautiful white modern interior. We are sad to say goodbye, but we are excited to transition to a slightly less nomadic lifestyle! $120K for each or $220K for the whole package. You can find all the details on the truck and trailer here: https://fulltimerigforsaleblog.wordpress.com or http://www.rvtrader.com/listing/-5000003092 This is the perfect setup for fulltiming, with room to spare for your grandkids or hobby space. Thanks for looking!
  4. Ok let’s put our collective minds together for this one, I’ve got a 1999 freightliner sports chassis powered by a CAT motor, automatic transmission, I went to start it and nothing happened, like the batteries were dead, checked that, batteries are good, no buzzer or bells, anyone had this happen before, and what was the cause, just trying to get some feed back before I have it towed in to a shop somewhere in the Kent Washington area, BTW I just negotiated a 15% off at the KOA here in Kent for anyone with a current union dues receipt, thanks in advance for your help
  5. HI everyone! I am new to posting here. I have been doing some research at length and trying to put everything together, but I was wondering if I can get some recommendations on my specific situation! We currently tow our 41 foot fifth and a gooseneck with antique tractors with a 2004 Dodge with the cummins and six speed. While adequate power, I am growing more concerned regarding braking and suspension with each trip. Which is, of course, what prompted me to look into MDT. Our family consists of myself, my wife, a 4 year old and a one year old. Because they are still in car seats, I felt that a 4 door was necessary. ... I started my research and I really liked the SportChassis type freightliner and really liked the SportTruckRV version! I am one who wants to have power to spare, so I was specifically looking at the M2 112 version with the bigger displacement motor. However, we were not very excited about the price tags.... I am currently looking at a 2008 SportChassis with the 12 liter MBE and 35,000 miles on it and 2000 miles away from me....it looks great but ....unfortunately with a hefty price tag. Then I came across a used 2007 Volvo VNL 730 with 465 hp D12 and 580,000 miles. This was used most recently to haul grain trailers for a farm. it is 800 miles away from me. This has the sleeper, but the refrig is removed and it has been set up with 2 captains chairs sitting sideways and a dinette style table in the back. it is 1/3 the price of the SportChassis. I guess my concerns are: 1. Driving a large HDT- I have a non-commercial class A license, but without driving either MDT or HDT before, the MDT is less intimidating 2. Will it be a problem getting the car seats in and kids in the car seats, or would 4 doors be a lot better? 3. The Volvo is still a tandem....is it ok to leave it that way or will this need to be changed? 4. License/registration in PA....can it be an RV or does it have to be registered as a truck? 5. Is 580,000 miles too much and should I stay away based on that? 6. Parking when out on a trip without the fifth 7. Getting into some campgrounds...the truck is 12' tall, but the camper I guess would still be the limiting factor at 13'6" 8. Any other suggestions I am missing? I know these have probably been answered in one way or another multiple times on this great forum, but I was looking for recommendations for my situation in PA with 2 small children. Thanks in advance for all your help!
