This paper outlines the design factors that should be considered by the suppliers of chassis for motor homes, and discusses the important considerations involved.
The author presents recommendations for the frame, engine mounting, radiator, oil dip stick, automatic transmission, steering column angle and location, brake pedal, exhaust system, gasoline tank, ride quality, and front axle capacity.
By working together cooperatively, the mobile home builder and chassis manufacturer can solve many of the problems described.
