Sprinters are a series of compromises, to gain the agility of the smaller form factor.

Good to know, thanks!

PS: on the series of compromises and small size agility point, the MBS has a rather amazing turning radius that kind of shocked me in a state park parking lot the other day with its ability to make a very nice U-turn I didn't think it could do!

Hey guys and gals, I am reading this thread and have an off-topic question for ya, concerning the Prism and such. We are still tinkering with trying to get the diesel Class C's grouped together in one subforum. cause we understood the Solera, Forester, and Sunseeker diesels were all basically the same on the MBS chassis.

However, is the Coachmen Prism a different breed, as I am reading it is on a Mercedes Benz Freightliner chassis. Is this just marketing terms, or is there a difference between a MB Sprinter and MB Freightliner chassis?

You can just PM me with the answers, as not to hijack or disrupt this thread any more than I already have. Thanks for your support
