Last Year the exhaust on our previous coach (Monaco Cayman, diesel pusher) was past its sell by date, and it would seem to be in the 'very difficult to source' department plus no luck at Quickfit, so I made contact with a company called Franklin Silencers in Northampton, a chap called David Bateman.
www.franklinsilencers.co.uk

The old exhaust from turbo to tail pipe was take to them by me & they made a complete new unit including the nesc clamps (£350 + vat).
They use a scanner to trace the size & bends on the exhaust which is connected to a computer. This builds a 3D image which is then sent to a bending machine (this can deal with tube up to 127mm) this machine automatically forms the tube to the same shape as the original. The silencer box is made from stock sizes and then the flanges are added by hand to connected the various bits together. It then goes on a paint conveyor to finish it off.
Did not see it being made but they took me around the factory to see the various processes of their production.
The exhaust was made in standard steel although I had spoken about stainless, but I didn't confirm the material with them - my fault- but the existing one has lasted 11 years before it fell apart.

Fitted it all without a problem.

(David tells me that they make some exhausts for Itchy feet too)

Regards

Arthur

Hi
I did need a full exhaust system on my holiday rambler V8, I taken it to someone I know called custom chrome in nuneaton graham, graham had a good look at it for me and gave me a amazing quote of £400 :lol: and not only that it was a full system in stainless steel, yes stainless steel. :shock:
If you want or need his number pm me.
Hope this helps.
Jason :D :D :)
