2016 Tag Axle Berk

I was searching for info or pics on the new 2016 tag axle Berk but came up empty except for this little tidbit. Specs from FL on the chassis. Not only will it be a tag but it will also have a side radiator.

Be nice to see a 150 gallon fuel tank on a tag axle with a 450 Cummins vs a 100gal. I know the Charleston doesn't have one either. Just saying FR if your reading....lots of other brand tag axles have bigger tanks...

James,
It does have a 150 gal fuel tank. I guess that tell us that you won't be getting the approx. 10 mpg with the 450 hp that you get with the 360 hp.

Wow optional steerable tag axle! I like that 43A floorplan.

I was shopping Newmar but this could be my next Moho.

Cool, in the specs I saw it was listed as 100. Not sure where I read that though. Glad it's not. You know though I would be curious on mileage. I was camped next to a guy with a Newmar with the 500 or 550 Cummins, tag axle and over 42'. He said he didn't know what kind of mileage he got. "Never looked" he said. And they lived in it full time. I guess thats the difference between my level of money and his...lol. I knew exactly how much mileage I got and when, pulling this or that etc etc.

I found this on a National RV Detroit website.

With a FREE sewer hose.

Of course no units in stock, but you can call and order.

Oh man, a free sewer hose!! I'm in!!

If 346k and change is the price then a Newmar I will buy. That's if I upgrade ever. Seems to me that it should come in below what a Charleston cost, but that's just me.
