Superliner; Heavy Single frame, do they exist?

Recommended Posts

Is there such a thing as a heavy single frame on a superliner? I found a RW700 and it supposedly has a "heavy single frame". I'd love to put a dump body on this truck and I'd love to not deal with a double frames inevitable spread but am worried it wouldn't be a good idea for a dump.

The superliners were a RW, RW600 series and RW700. The 700 designations were the heavier ones.

Could get a RW 700 with a 10.5" X 3.25" X 3/8" steel frame.

I know where there is a superdog sitting that is heavy spec. I will take a look to see if it has a heavy frame or if it is double frame.

3/8 thick single rail chassis of a RW700 belonged to our Dutch member.

How come some Superliners have the air cleaners outside the hood like the R models and some don't? I build model trucks and want to make sure I get a Superliner right.

There is the RW713 that the Superliner II had a heavy single 10 1/2" deep frame. It is 3/8 thick. There is another tread here that shows the frame spec for the frames. I would not be afraid of putting a dump on a Superliner that had this frame. Think is maybe stronger than a RW613 double frame.

The frame that is under my Superliner at the moment is a RW613 front with the heavy RW713 frame with air ride Rockwell lockers spliced under the cab and rearward, it was camelback suspension. It is stout and spliced.

This is the frame spec table that shows that the  RW700  heavy single frame is stronger than the smaller RW600 double frame.

It was an option with the exterior air cleaners. Same as duel or single stack.

OH. Thanks for clarifying. I thought maybe it had to do with engine, series or year.

Thank you gentlemen, yeah it's a RW700..it has the 400 Cummins and a 13 speed. I still don't know of axles and suspension yet. Or even if there's enough frame. I'd love to add a lift axle and a 16' body. 2d3846987ece06cfd144eadd6a6e31fa.jpg

Light frame and fronts on that truck. Probably better candidates around for making a tri.

I don't see a lot of superdogs with heavy fronts.
