Maybe mor important than the motor is make sure u are getting freightliner new Axel and v drive. It's pretty new but I just came from freightliner school and with my 2015 40BH had it. Also if it's a 2016 it should be OK. Another issue was the instant hot water heaters they changed from gaurade to Atwood. Atwood is better.

The 38A has fantastic storage capacity in both bathrooms. Cabinets are big enough to store towels and beach towels without being folded into impossibly small sizes!
The pull out garbage can cabinet is handy too. No more "where am I going to put the trash can"
The shower is a 1 piece unit which avoids water getting into seams in shower. The seat in the shower is also handy.

To Neanderthal: Bravo and Congrats on your winning fight against Cancer! I am a 2 time Cancer Survivor! Stay strong and positive! I will keep you in my Prayers!

Nathan,
Call the Freightliner help line (1-800-FTL-HELP) and they should be able to tell you if your chassis has those options. You will need the last 6 numbers of your vin when you call.
