Default Re: Placed our order for 2014 Era - can't wait!

trukeeper,
See if you can get the VIN# for the Cab/Chassis they are going to build your RV on.
Send me the VIN# and a valid email address (via PM above) and I will pull the data card for that chassis so you can
see all of the things that went into building the Chassis in Germany.
Lots of new things for the 2014
The whole front end is different......new standard 4 cylinder 2.1 liter dual stage turbo (OM-651) engine....7 speed transmission
The optional OM-642/5 speed is still there, so the RV up fitter may be using that engine and trans.
First thing you need is a Scan Gauge II so you can learn to drive your new RV efficiently in a manner that will keep it running trouble
free for many miles/years.
Roger
