The DX3 line are built on Freightliner M-2 HDT (Heavy Duty Truck) cab chassis. These Class 7 HDTs are rated at 33,000 pounds GVWR. They have a TRUE tow capacity of 20,000 pounds! When you check some RVs, the "rated" tow capacity cannot be achieved because of a restriction on tongue weight. You don't have that problem with a DX3. Air suspension along with professional air seats make for a smooth ride. You're sitting up high (like a professional trucker) and, have a GREAT view of the road. A three camera system makes it easy to see what's going on on both sides of the coach and in the rear. With the engine up front, future service costs will be less than on diesel pushers. The 37RB floor plan features a bath and a half. I LOVE the fact that, on the two slides, nothing important moves. The residential refrigerator, washer / dryer, sink, toilets, shower, stovetop etc stay put. Propane, water supply and drain lines do NOT have to move. In many RVs, this is not the case. Another feature I love, is that with the two slides fully retracted, I can still walk from the front cab all the way back to the bedroom. I have full use of the three door fridge, the stovetop and the mid-ship toilet. I can sleep in the king size bed too. You can't do any of this on many other RVs unless you open the slides.

Drawbacks: Super C Class motorhomes tend to have a lot of coach extending past the rear axle. The DX3-37RB has about 13' aft of the rear axle. You need to keep that in mind when making turns (I got used to it quickly). Dynamax installs two engine batteries and two house batteries. The residential fridge, when running off the inverter, will deplete the house batteries in 24 hours so, you need to be either 1:plugged int shore power, 2: running the generator or 3: running the diesel engine. I replaced the two 12V house batteries with SIX 6V batteries and, now have four times the amp hours! The next time I'm in the southwest, I'll look into having solar panels installed. Although there is a lot of storage space inside and outside, there is no pass though storage (although there is a spot near the back where I think I can fabricate a rack to effect 6'+ of storage for a long item).

Bottom line: The DX3 models are built on a heavy duty commercial truck. These trucks are built for trucker use and, truckers expect HDTs to be capable of delivering over 1,000,000 miles of service. IF I live to be 300, I might wear it out.

I found the dx3 to be a great simple coach to operate. It is safer to drive than a class A because you have a motor between you and your collision. Also having the weight up front tracks much better than my class A. You lose a little living space but everything is a trade off. I picked ride and safety. Great choice for the money

Purchased the Dynamax DX3 Sept. 2016 after searching for more than a year for a replacement for our Class A Pusher. Not a real fan of slides because we rarely set up for more than an overnight, but these are well done with quality seals and operation. When closed the access to rear of coach is good and easy to move to back to the mid bath and fridge/kitchen. The bed room can be used without extending the slides. The quality of the appliances, woodwork, flooring, ceiling and furniture materials are all very good and heavy enough to feel like house quality. We got the all electric version with Diesel Hydro-hot and Diesel Gen Set. Also added solar system for extended gen off time. The driving is a dream. No slack in steering, great brakes and easy trailer towing. Visibility is great and entry/exit from the cab is easy. The air ride seats are wonderful. Stereo and cab air-conditioning, washer/wipers, etc. all feel automotive. Fueling is easy too. We added locking fuel caps and tinted side cab windows after delivery. We had to replace a missing screen door shield, but the factory was excellent with communication and sent one out immediately when we identified the part. We had an issue with the front theater TV not receiving the Satellite signal. That was traced to a HDMI cable that had not been retrieved from the wall and plugged into the TV during the build. An easy fix!. Body paint is first class. Access to the engine, Hydro-hot, Gen Set, and electrical are good for future service. All filters were easy to find/purchase for stocking spares. In coach and under coach exterior storage are more than adequate. We really like the design of the Super C style due to the way the under truck storage is designed and the quality exterior doors. Just a very well done design. We have used for two months now on 3 trips and have to give excellent rating for now. We think we found the best value considering quality of chassis and coach. I really don't like cheap feeling "campers", but nor do I want to invest millions in a Prevost Bus Conversion. The Dynamax on the Freightliner Chassis works great for our needs.

Nice RV but! Major drawback in the overhang off the rear end. The 2016 have the dove tail in the back. Wished that I research that more before I made this purchase. The DX3 needs rollers or a shid plate of some sort so you don't tear the rear end cap up. Shower leaks. Levers don't work right and had to replace the radio deck right off the bat. Engine and chassis seem fine.
