Accessories, two sets of panoramic windows (front and back), larger tanks (in most cases), stainless steel rock guards, wide body coach, meatier frame, etc. That's where a good chunk of the "extra" weight comes from when comparing new with vintage. Now with the more robust axle systems installed, the 25' Six Sleeper for example had a max GVWR of 6300lbs, and now has a 7300lb GWVR (and I believe this is consistant across the models).
BTW, I didn't know that the emerg brakes would fry the Prodigy. However I stand by the comment that the Jordan, from what I've read here and elsewhere, will not work correctly with a HydroBoost equipped GM vehicle. The pedal travel can vary greatly.
