It's Mostly Diesel for Workhorse at RV Trade Show

It will be a mostly diesel show for Workhorse as it will, first of all, introduce its W20D and W22D front engine diesel chassis for the first time. With 20,500 and 22,000 lb. GVWRs, they are the same as Workhorse’s popular gas W20 and W22 models, including the six-speed Allison, only powered by Navistar’s MaxxForce™ 7 diesel engine (230 hp, 620 lb.-ft torque).

The 33-foot Itasca Sunstar by Winnebago Booth and the all-new 31-foot, seven-inch Four Winds Serrano will be two Class A models at the show built on the W20D.

Workhorse will also display its W16D chassis, introduced in September. It’s another front-engine diesel powered by a MaxxForce™ 5 engine (200 hp, 440 lb.-ft. torque) and used by the new Avanti motor home from Damon.

Also, Navistar is displaying its “Super C” chassis for RVs, the DuraStar, in the Workhorse booth. With a 25,500 lb. GVWR and a 33,000 lb. GCWR, it is a heavy-duty diesel in every sense of the word (MaxxForce DT engine, 300 hp, 660 lb.-ft. torque).

But gas is still in the equation with the 2009 Chevy Workhorse Class C chassis. The big news here is that the 2009 model has boosted its GCWR from 17,600 lbs. to 20,000 lbs., and GVWR from 14,050 lbs. to 14,200 lbs., leaving it with 5,800 lbs. of safe towing capacity among other things.
