Workhorse Chassis Overview


Workhorse Custom Chassis began in 1999. As Chevrolet decided to get out of the RV chassis business, Workhorse took over those operations, beginning with converting the Chevy P30 Step Van/RV chassis into a similar Workhorse version called the P32. Later, the W series chassis was designed strictly for motorhomes. Workhorse quickly garnered market share in the industry be committing itself to improving the Breed. What began as a W20 chassis has now grown into W22, W24, and W25.5 variations. The powerful 8.1 Liter GM Vortec V8 is coupled to Allison transmissions and is now found in every Workhorse gas chassis. In addition to the popular W series gas powered chassis a rear diesel R series chassis and rear engined UFO series chassis were introduced (although not as popular as the W series) and Workhorse has now entered the class C market with a Chevy based chassis as well.

The Workhorse Custom Chassis website is found at www.workhorse.com and their roadside assistance department has a toll free phone number at 1 (877) 946-7731. They have an excellent web based "My Workhorse" section on their website. By registering your VIN number you can access the latest information on any product recalls that may affect your chassis. Workhorse also sponsors a Workhorse Users Forum on the IRV2.com website where a large informed owner base discusses issues specific to the Workhorse chassis.
