Toyman, I have a 2004 30 ft SO Land Yacht. It has the 8.1 engine and the GM transmission. From observation, it seems to me that they didn't use the Allison until 2005.

Boy, that would be a rare unit then wouldn't it ? Wonder if it would have the 5 speed, or 6 speed Allison?

I believe the Allison transmission was only used in the diesel pushers - my 94 LY has the Cummins engine and a 6-speed Allison transmission.
