Brochure 2007 Berkshire MBE 926

hello, we have a Berkshire 2007 with MBE 926 engine and MH 3000 gearbox. Does anyone know how much GCWR we have. My Europe papers are wrong, normally I should have 38000 lb? Does anyone have another 2007 Berkshire Brochure? Thank you and regards Emmanuel

should be stickers with the weight somewhere near the driver seat. could be on the wall next to the drivers seat or in the overhead compartment above the drivers seat.

Thank you, unfortunately the stickers have been swapped and I have data from Cummins.

by what you are describing with chassis and motor and transmission are you sure you don't have a Charleston? the 2007 charleston was built with a Mercedes motor, and a 3000 series transmission, while the Berkshire was built with a Cummins ISB motor and a 2500 transmission. what is the floorplan? should have a number on the outside by the entry door. Also I have attached the Charleston brochure for a 2007.

if you have the titles the chassis vin number should also be on those and you could reach out to FCCC at 1-800-ftl-help and they should be able to get you the chassis spec's for your coach. Also I believe the GVWR is printed on the chassis title, which is an incomplete title, and then there will be a title from forest river that has the floorplan on it.

According to the brochure the GCWR is 33,000 lbs. and the Mercedes MBE 926 turbo diesel
7.2 liter
330 HP @ 2200 RPM
1000 Ft. Lbs. Torque @1600 RPM
Allison 3000MH 6-speed transmission was an option on that model in place of the Cummins ISB 5.9L

10,000lb receiver hitch. GCWR 38000lbs ? That would be better for me than 33000lb. Since I have 6700 lb with trailer and car.

It is a 33,000 lbs GCRW. The hitch capacity doesn't add to the GCRW. Not sure where the OP got the 38,000 lbs from.

The 10,000 lb hitch is optional equipment and isn't standard like the Mercedes diesel engine which also is a selectable equipment option.
