RE: Class A. Wheel size

Thanks Chum I did not realize that the 22.5 were an option on the shorter units Have not really got into investigation of choices yet We like our 29 foot C. As we don’t have a toad and was hoping not to use one. I travel a long way usually and dislike pulling the toad. With Uber and my ability to get into tight spots with my present configuration, that is why I’m hoping to just step up 3 feet to a 32 ft class A. But then as you mentioned the weight factor comes into play. All things that must be investigated. Thank you for your help Seedhay

Class A. Wheel size

I don’t know if this is the place for this question. I am a year away from upgrading from class C Ford 29 ft to 31 to 35 foot class A. The new Ford A chassis should be out by then with the bigger engine and 10 speed trans. My first question is the bigger engine going to be a V 10? Second is opinion from current owners that have had both 19.5 and 22.5 tires. I am excavating contractor and have always gone with biggest wheels possible. Problem I have is most 32 footers are 19.5 rubber ( but is my preferred size for coach. Or the 35’s with the 22.5 Thanks in advance for you opinions Seedhay

RE: Alignment shop recomendation Nashville area

Hello Harvard I already have the offset sleeves ( guy put them in 2 adjustments ago ). But he had it toed out a long way. It would dive left or right terribly. Second alignment they did a lot better but I did not know about the 5 degree part so could not advise them on it. It’s pretty good but in wind or to pay turbo road it can play you out. I’ve got 40 years experience in big trucks and equipment and have driven a lot of bad rigs. My tolerance level is pretty high for bad steering. I would like my wife to be able to drive this unit and right now I’m not sure she would enjoy it Thanks for the help

RE: Alignment shop recomendation Nashville area

Thanks for the reply’s Harvard. I had read your posts and they are of great help but I’m confused. In one of your posts you said this “”” Quote If you are not a DIY owner I would suggest you purchase a set of INGALLS 594 Camber/Caster sleeves then make an appointment with an alignment shop. Be very specific in your instructions asking them to install these sleeves SET TO 0.0 Degrees CAMBER and +2.0 Degrees CASTER then align the TOE IN to be within TOE spec while accepting the resulting CAMBER and CASTER AS IS! Trust me, it will be well worth the effort IF you own a wandering E350/E450.”” End quote As I’m going to go to an alignment shop and tell them their business I would like to know. Are they to do the above process to set the toe in and then continue on for the caster to be set in the 5 range as you had outlined

Alignment shop recomendation Nashville area

I'm looking for a recommendation for a good rv alignment shop in the Nashville area, perhaps even into Lexington, Bowling Green KY area as were on the move from Canada, looking to align a Ford e450, have had 2 in he last year , they are getting better but I,m looking for someone that understands and can correct the Ford e450 wander problem that plagues so many motorhomes, I drove a uhaul last week and it steered great. I've checked out quite a few of the posts on this site and it seems the tech person doing the alignment on these fords is an important part of the job and I would like to find the best heart surgeon!!! Thanks in advance for any assistance. Seedhay
