LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Dec. 3, 2009 – Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) announced today that it successfully designed and is already manufacturing new RV chassis that meets 2010 EPA regulations.

Known for exceptional ride and handling as well as superb performance, the entire FCCC RV chassis lineup meets the needs of all motorhome customers. The new 2010 technology will be incorporated into all FCCC chassis models including the ever-popular FRED™ (MC), brand-new MC-L, XC-S, XC-L, XC-R, XC-M and Powerliner III®.

The 2010-compliant chassis come equipped with the Cummins® ISB, ISC or ISL engines. The Cummins ISB is a 6.7-liter engine and provides up to 360 horsepower and 800 ft. lbs. of torque. The ISC offers 8.3 liters, up to 380 horsepower and 1,050 ft. lbs. of torque, while the ISL 8.9-liter engine offers up to 450 horsepower and 1,200 ft. lbs. of torque.

To showcase the new packaging and technology, the company is exhibiting the FCCC XC-R raised-rail chassis equipped with the Cummins ISC 2010 emissions-compliant engine at the National RV Trade Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center (Booth #2336).

“Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation completed the engineering and design of the new technology well in advance of the Jan. 1, 2010 deadline to better meet the

needs of our OEMs and end-users,” said Tony Sippel, RV product manager at FCCC.

“We are now manufacturing chassis featuring this new technology, allowing OEMs and customers a full portfolio of FCCC products that meet the updated federal emissions requirements.”

The 2010-compliant XC-R raised-rail chassis on display here features all of the benefits customers have come to expect from a FCCC motorhome chassis, including outstanding maneuverability, reliability and performance. The lowered rear section incorporates a flat-floor design throughout the coach, providing for more motorhome body configurations. Boasting a 60-degree wheel cut, the XC-R chassis is a perfect solution for easier travel through urban settings.
