Well, after a year and 13000 or so miles on our 8356 (Workhorse), we went to Florida last week and came back with major electrical problems. The jacks don't work, all of the marker lights and the tail lights are out (brake lights are functional), the road side slide is not working, the house batteries are draining in just a few hours, and the generator starts, but stops running after a couple of minutes (three flashes, needs service).
This on a coach which has been giving us electrical problems from the beginning.
Our dealer has a Quattro 8710 (four slides), 40 feet with a Mercedes diesel. He seems prepared to make us a deal that might convince me that I should make the trade.
So here are the questions: How does the Mercedes perform (I understand that it has a lot of torque and gets better gas mileage... what about service)? How does the Freightliner chassis compare to the Workhorse (the dealer claims that folks say there's less sway, and that Workhorse chassis have typically experienced a lot more problems). Thirdly, What kind of experience has the group had with the Quattro models?
After the problems with the electrical system I've had with the 8356, I'm almost reluctant to go with another GS coach, but I still think that you get a lot of coach for the money,
