I really like the Buffalos, but would not consider them comparable with a Scenic. Same with MC-7s....I like em, but not a Scenic either in my opinion.

If you know of the whereabouts of a PD4501 Scenicruiser - I would like to add the serial number to my registry of surviving Scenics.

Be really neat if they brought out a new updated PD-4501. 102" wide, flat floors, independent front air suspension, air disc brakes, 500hp DD13, 12spd MB transmission, maybe even 45ft. Good Luck, TomC

That would be a great idea. How about a 45 footer with double steering axles, full tandems, increased storage bays with roller beds or slide-outs for cargo hauling, maybe even use super singles for tires with a 55,000 lb. gross weight. Keep the same classic shape, but make it as streamlined as possible. Maybe somebody could sweet talk Fedex or UPS into considering it for package and people hauling. Come to think of it, no, I don't want to see a brown Scenicruiser, or just travel at night quickly. The Mexican Setra's have similar qualities, maybe they can be persuaded.
