Those photos were part of the factory tour we took. The Berkshire Tag (XLT) is just now ramping up production (in fact all the coaches you see in the production line are XLTs!)
It will probably be mid-16 before we can get ours.
Here are some photos of the new Freightliner V-Ride Chassis, the ultraSteer Tag, and the BEAST of a 450HP Diesel Engine! The XLT has a 15K tow rating
Once the Chassis is inspected and certified by Berkshire, it goes across town to MORryde to have the Tru-Brace frame installed. We were amazed--MORryde installs the frames with a level tolerance of 0.010 that straightens the natural bend of the Freightline frame --this virtually eliminates the springboard effect!
The sub flooring is one piece so there is little chance of road squeaks like you would get if the flooring was several pieces.
This is truly a quality built coach from the ground up!!
The last photo is Craig Kruchowski, one of the Berkshire Diesel Division management team and out tour guide for the day.
