Short answer, no.

Complicated answer, they are not yet all gone, but just a few left. I heard all the consignment units...

Drove through FOT parking lot Monday night and yep, there aren't many coaches there.  MOT is full like usual.

MOT is even more full, having taken FOT's consignment coaches.

So if they took the outer  bags off on the new frame.. why keeps it from bouncing back and forth.. to be honest that is one of my favorite by products of my Fortravel .. no bouncing back and forth..

Spartan is now calling the new ih-45 chassis T3 605.  It still has the outboard airbags on the drive axle like the older ih-45 welded frames made by foretravel

Foretravel ih‑45 - Spartan RV Chassis

Good thing, differentiates it from other coaches. No mention of turning or unloading tag.

Tag is passive   It turns at low speeds.  I think it locks straight at 20 mph.  Easy to tell if passive  or  not tag by looking at the wheel used on the tag. If tag wheel is like front then it is  passive, if looks like drive then it is not.

Turbojack, this one just drags when turning? Says liftable and passive. Thought the IH-45's were too heavy to have a liftable tag, or does it mean just bag dumping.

Jcus  the one in your picture  just drags in turns  If you are going slow enough you can push the TAG button on the HWH panel and it will dump the air in the tags. (Adding more weight to the drive axle) The tag will still drag with the air out....
