Were all Breakaways on a Spartan chassis? I'm thinking that a Breakaway would be a possibility for Tere and I if we could get a later model with low mileage. But, my experience with the 28'ers on a Spartan chassis makes me want to go to a 30'er or even a 32'er.
A couple of "Breakaway XLs" were on Gillig chasses.
AFAIK, all the "real" Breakaways were on Spartan chasses. Having had my 28' for 10 years and 110K miles, I can't say there's anything inherently wrong with that size. The GM/AMG engine has had its share of issues, but all with accessories, not the drivetrain itself.

a quick scan of the data base shows 2 1991 Cat motored Gillig chassis Breakaway's (both 34') prior to the XL designation
and 2 1994 Gillig chassis Breakaway XL's (one 30' and one 33')
one Cummins and one Cat powered
I'm one of the pre-XL Breakaways on a Gillig Air Chassis, Barth unit# 3694
Still trying to locate the other one's owner:

food for thought... "...Prejudice is an emotional commitment to ignorance.."
1991 early XL-style (maybe 1 of 2?) Breakaway... but prior to that actual (XL) designation...
