Freightliner Custom Chassis’ V-Ride vs. the Competition

Freightliner Custom Chassis V RideAs the first-ever single axle suspension rated at 24,000 pounds, Freightliner Custom Chassis V-Ride is designed for luxury motorhome owners who want the ability to carry more gear, the freedom to equip their interiors with premium amenities, and a comfortable, confident driving experience.

Benefits of FCCC V-Ride –

  • Increased towing capacity
  • Quik-Align® allows for easy axle alignment without the use of shims
  • V-rod connection dissipates suspension forces, reducing stress for greater durability and longevity
  • U-Shaped Assembly – The transverse beam integrated with the trailing arm form a single-piece U-shaped assembly – enhancing stability at all speeds
  • Consistent Handling – The V-rod connection and U-shaped assembly design result in superior roll stability and more predictable handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome owners a confident driving experience
  • Smooth Ride – Large volumetric air springs and premium Sachs shocks deliver the smoothest ride available in a motorhome

FCCC V-Ride vs. the Competition – 

FCCC has the Best Class A Ride

  • FCCC has a custom-built drive suspension by FCCC-engineering
  • Competition has an off-the-shelf truck suspension with swiveling bushing

Stability for All 

  • FCCC suspensions are rated from 17,500 to 24,000 lbs. and designed exclusively for RV usage
  • Competition uses a generic truck/bus axle configuration

Driver Control 

  • FCCC’s V-Ride is the only suspension that controls the weight of a top-heavy vehicle – giving control and confidence to the owner for the life of the coach.
  • Competition is still using technology that FCCC stopped using in 1999.

Feature Teacher: Maxum Chassis

maxum chassis

 

The perfect diesel-pusher experience begins starts with a solid base, and Winnebago’s exclusive Maxum Chassis provides the ultimate framework for an unsurpassed ride in a Class A Diesel motorhome. Winnebago’s engineers worked closely with Freightliner Custom Chassis – the proven leader in diesel motorhome chassis – to create the Maxum Chassis: a stronger, better performing chassis. The Maxum Chassis sets the standard for diesel-pusher chassis with its lowered-rail frame providing better handling, a smoother ride, and incredible strength. In fact, the Maxum Chassis is seven times stronger than a raised-rail chassis which minimizes chassis flex and twisting. To top it off, the Maxum Chassis’ lowered-rail design increases the basement storage height allowing for pass-thru storage with room for slideout trays.

The Maxum Chassis is accompanied by Freightliner Custom Chassis’ UltraSteer, in the Grand Tour and Tour, further increasing maneuverability – up to a 17% reduction in curb-to-curb turning radius as compared to a fix tag axel (a 140% improvement over a competitor’s chassis). In the Horizon and Journey models, the Maxum Chassis is accompanied by Freightliner Custom Chassis’ V-Ride rear axle/suspension which provides drivers with consistent handling in all road conditions, giving motorhome drivers a confident driving experience.

When you purchase a Winnebago Class A Diesel from Lichtsinn RV you will get both the best RV manufacturer and the best chassis as well! Enjoy Carefree Diesel Living with Winnebago’s industry leading 3-year, 100,000-mile warranty on all diesel-pushers built on the Freightliner chassis.

PressurePro Chosen as TPMS for Winnebago Freightliner Maxum Chassis Offerings

Advantage PressurePro has been chosen as the TPMS provider for Winnebago’s line of Freightliner Maxum chassis offerings. The included models – encompassing the Winnebago Grand Tour, Tour and Journey models – will be gaining PressurePro’s market leading TPMS capabilities through their factory-installed XiteSolutions North America Inc.’s (XSNA) infotainment solution, arming users with a complete and integrated TPMS option.

“Giving Winnebago owners a comprehensive and streamlined solution that allows us to deliver our advanced monitoring capabilities is key, as tire maintenance and monitoring continue to be an integral part of ensuring a safe journey to your chosen destination,” said Nathalie Zaroor, PressurePro’s recreational account manager. “Our partnership and integration with XiteSolutions North America is a perfect solution as it arms customers with the same gold TPMS capabilities utilized by our commercial and heavy duty customers around the globe, without sacrificing ease of use or the attractive package desired by recreationalists.”

The integrated solution, distributed by RiverPark Inc., began rollout in early December and allows customers to monitor real-time tire performance information directly on their infotainment screen, both during travels and while parked. Fully customizable alerts allow users to set alarm triggers per their individualized needs, while wholly integrated alert capabilities allow warnings to be delivered not just on screen, but also audibly through the vehicle’s sound system.

“PressurePro carries a high standard of those we choose to work with, as we maintain the same elevated expectations for quality and support that we demand of our own solutions. We couldn’t be more impressed with our partnership with XiteSolutions North America or the final product birthed from it” stated Vanessa Hargrave, COO of Advantage PressurePro. “With a newly created user interface, XSNA has gone above and beyond to deliver our complete TPMS capabilities to Winnebago customers, including advanced options such as our trailer on/off settings and easy ‘sensor swap capabilities, all while maintaining unmatched ease of use and installation.”
