Difference in RM8H and RR8S ?


Recommended Posts

Joe,

You are lucky in that your 02 Windsor chassis is the RM8H and not the RR8S. Plus it is also called the S- Series Chassis which is the Semi-Monocoque Chassis that is described here -  https://docplayer.net/22482555-Roadmaster-s-series-semi-monocoque-chassis.html

The RM8H simply stands for Roadmaster 8 Bag (H-??) Don't know what the H stands for though.

The RR8S Chassis is a Raised Rail 8 bag with a side Radiator. Whereas the RR8R is the Raised Rail 8 Bag Rear Radiator.

Hope this helps!

I was confused, we have a 2002 Windsor PWD and we have a side radiator, so I referred to a pdf I have saved (see below). It say our Windsors have a RM8H chassis as stated. This is the Windsor specs.

I read that the "H" is for H frame.  I think that must be what is called an "I" beam in the construction trades.

The axles are attached to the “H” frame (it’s the shape)

At each corner of the the “H” is an air bag and a shock, and these are attached to the main rail frame. (In a raised rail, or other structure in a mono coach)
 

This is why there is lots of play/sway in the system it seems. The H frames are up to 6’ in length with a squishy air bag packing all the body with its inertia rolling around.
