New Berkshires

Just got back from a tour at the diesel division. Got a new surprise coming with future model for the Berks. Going to have a Berkshire tag axle. Can't wait to see this in production.

Handling, weight carrying capacity increase, annnnnd, this model will come with a 450 HP side radiator cummins.(plus a host of other upgrades) IMO, the company is nailing it right now with product development. I know I'm excited. After this week of seeing Forest River's commitment to customer service, I'm not looking elsewhere when I upgrade.
