General Motors Corp. and Workhorse Custom Chassis Corp. have increased the GVWR of the 2009 Chevy Workhorse Class C motorhome chassis by 150 pounds to 14,200 pounds. “People are looking at Class C motorhomes for their performance and handling,” said Bill Walmsley, director of marketing for Workhorse, a Navistar International Corp. subsidiary. “But they still want some of the amenities and the towing capacity that Class A’s provide. This new model responds to that.” With an accompanying increase in GVCR from 17,600 to 20,000 pounds and 5,800 pounds towing capacity, the 2009 Chevy Workhorse minimotorhme chassis can tow many SUVs and most cars, Walmsley noted. “The increased towing capacity makes this an exceptionally complete package for any RVer, new or experienced.” Cab features include new radio/MP3 controllers along with front bumper steps for cleaning windshields, over-sized map pockets and driver-information clusters that include an oil life monitor.
