Welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy your new rig. Dealing with Gulf Stream can be a challenge at times, but they did take care of me. Just be persistent and keep records. As far as the MBE engine, I have nothing but good to report so far, but I only have 20,000 miles on it so far. Fuel millage is decent at about 9 MPH.

Thanks arthur for the reply. we may be picking it up tommorrow or this weekend at least. I have been told the the mercedes engine is excellent and that it also being a freightliner chassis, I can get engine and chassis work done at over 1100 dealrs nationwide. Not sure if that is just sales talk or not.
we are excited to get on the road.
Maybe head to the bay area in a few weeks
