Not sure exactly 360 classic diesel pushers they actually made. The vin on mine indicated its number 47 in the series. I paid $36k for mine 2 years ago in very nice condition with 65k miles on it.

That's the front engine gas version on the P30 chassis. You can tell by the tag axel. The diesel pusher is on a Spartan EC2000 chassis with a single rear axel.

It seems surprising to me that there is only a single rear axle on these pushers, and that the axel is kind of far forward, with the weight of that engine hanging so far out.

I am contemplating options for pulling a race trailer and would love an airstream diesel. But I'm reading that the towing capacity isn't that great on these. And that long overhang seems too long to really even think about dropping much extra tongue weight from a trailer on the back.

The tow capacity is 2000 lbs. I believe that is based on braking capacity. The engine and transmission are tucked up pretty close to the axel. There is probably 3 feet from the block to the rear of the vehicle. Mine weighed in at around 16k empty. It's a 20,000 GVW beast.

I don't think reasonable tung weight would be a problem. Trailer brakes would probably allow you tow more weight. But add a trailer to a 36 foot rig and you have quite a train. They do drive very well. We travel with 2 mountain bikes hanging on the back.
