Hi my is Ron and I am a newbe
I am looking for a land yacht 30. my question is when they were using the 454 did it have the Allison transmission or did that start with the 8.1L.
Any wisdom, from you folks, that might help me in my search would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

My 2005 has the 8.1L engine and the GM 4 speed but I don't know what kind of mix-and-match was done with the combinations. The 4 speed seems fine so far, but only about 20K miles on my moho.

I have a 26 with the 8.1,no Allision transmission but the GM transmission from what I have read is pretty solid. I do not think is was an option to get the Allision for my 2004 LY
But could be wrong.

I may be wrong about this, but I always understood the Allison transmission was only used in the diesel Airstreams not the gas models.

Mine has a Cummins diesel on a Freightliner chassis with the 6 speed Allison. Its been flawless except for a pump that went out in 2016. Freightliner said it was on the PM list for replacement at 10 years or 100k miles. At the time, mine was 18yrs and only 55k miles. Cost was about $350.
