    Ever wonder what the term "semi-monocoque chassis" means in term of motorhome construction? I sure did and was never able to get a straight answer from anybody when I asked what it meant. I Googled and came up with, among others, the following:

    According to the U.S. Centennial Of Flight Commission the term Monocoque is French and originated in airplane design.

    Wikipedia discusses the extension of the concept to unibody construction in automobiles.

    Hi Tom a question first what do Americans mean by "Over the road" I've heard this before over the road buses & over the road truck drivers

    I think the monocoque idea is brillant and should be used for coaches however I do think in the event of a rollover the coach would still be a total write off
    Leastways i wouldn't want it back again
