Low mileage one owner beautiful coach. The Knight 40PDQ is powered by the MaxxForce 10, which develops 350 horsepower and yields 1,150 pound-feet of torque. It is coupled with a six-speed automatic 3000 MH Allison transmission. Towing is made possible by the 10,000-pound hitch receiver that comes as standard equipment.
To help slow this giant luxury coach, a Jacobs three-stage engine compression brake is standard. The controls have been ingeniously designed into the face of the Smart wheel, where at the touch of a button, the engine braking is instantly activated to slow the coach. The driver needn’t look away from the road to locate and put a finger on the exhaust brake control. Standard equipment includes a locking transaxle (ATC), which prevents rear axle slippage on wet surfaces.
The exterior of the 40PDQ is nicely appointed. Every Knight motorhome features full body paint, with three paint schemes to choose from; my test unit featured the Platinum scheme. The front and rear caps have been redesigned for 2012, giving the Knight a distinctive look. Two huge coach-wide storage bays can be equipped with a pull-out trays that articulates from either side of the motorhome, making it easy to reach stowed items. The coach can be refueled from either side. For convenience, a single key is used for the ignition, the main entry, and the cargo bay doors.
