New Tag Axle Reduces Turning Radius By 7%

tagaxle.png2Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to cut their turning radius by 7%, especially if you’re driving one of the new 43 or 45′ coaches. Some times there’s just not a lot of room to get where you want to be.
The big boys in their Newells and million dollar bus conversions have had the luxury of steering tag axles for a few years now but, to the best of my knowledge, the new Passive Steering Tag Axle from Spartan is a first for the RV Manufacturers.
As I mentioned this new steer tag axle will make tight corner turning easier and reduce scuffing the tread off your tires, often an issue with normal tag axle coaches. When the coach transmission is place in Reverse the axle will lock in the “straight” position.

They tell us we will see this new tag axle first on the top of the line NewMar products. I wonder how far behind competitors like Entegra, Tiffin and American Coach will be. What do you think, will we soon see a steering axle on Cornerstone?
