RE: 6 liter V8 Chevy Vortec question

If you don't like the performance of a gas C, look into a super C with a diesel engine. Had 2 different C's with the gas engine an E350 and a E450 and now have a Thor Omni XG32 on the F550 chassis with 6.7L diesel, It has all sorts of power, drives great with no modifications needed for handling and is comfortable and quiet. Oh and very good fuel economy, we are averaging 14MPG pulling a trailer and it never down shifts on hills except for some very long steep grades, set the cruise control and go. I looked that vehicle up, my goodness is that a beauty. We really like it a lot. Certainly get a lot of people coming up wanting to ask questions and look at it, The handling and driving comfort was definitely worth the upgrade.

RE: Harbor Freight Tailgator generator review

Purchased the Yamaha 2000 generator last year for dry camping. Nice little generator, will run for about 12 hours on a gallon of gas and is very quiet.

RE: Save Your Atwood Furnace

That is a common issue. I purchased a 2 part Encapsulating epoxy, like they use on automotive electronics and encapsulated mine. Water was not an issue after that.

RE: Life expectancy of a small C class.... Ex Rental

I would not purchase a former rental unit, I have seen how the renters use and drive them. It's not theirs and they don't care. Going across Wyoming where the speed limit is 80mph the only RV that passes us is a rental. The ford chassis and drive train may be good, but that is pure abuse.

RE: sears 3000 inverter

Find a used Honda or Yamaha. You'll be much happier in 5 years. I agree, I have the Yamaha generator 2000i. It's quiet and runs for approximately 12 hours on a gallon of gas. Purchased it new last year for just under $900

RE: Who uses a pop-up canopy?

We purchased one this year and use it when Boon Docking for an extra shelter, set up a small table under it for the grill, comes in very handy.

RE: Which Super C?

Look at the new Thor Omni/Magnitude super c. F550 chassis and a 6.7L diesel, it is also 4X4. We purchased the Omni XG32 and like it a lot.

RE: 1/2T/huge TT vs strong cross wind = BAADDD DAY

We travel I 80 across Wyoming twice a year and at least once each year we see a truck and trailer blown over. There have been a few times we have slowed to 45mph and looking for a place to pull off.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

Larger Ford based Cs, 30 feet and longer, often have lousy payload, I saw some with under 1000 pounds. That's not entirely correct anymore. Check out the Thor Omni/Magnitude on the F550 chassis.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

depends on your use just short 500 mile trips we love out sprinter based class C show me a ford,chevy ,dodge that will get 16mpg and has more leg room than any of them. You need to look at the Thor Omni/Magnitude super c. I have a 2020 omni XG32 on the ford F550 chassis 6.7L diesel and it has tons of leg room. It does not get 16mpg but does average 10.4mpg. Not bad for a big C.

RE: Hooking up 50 amp trailer to generator

When we Boondock we hook our 50 amp service up to a Yamaha 2000 inverter generator. Keeps the batteries charged runs the fridge and watch a movie. we cant run the a/c which we never need in the mountains, or run the microwave. If we need to run something big we start the coach generator.

RE: Newbies looking to purchase

Just purchased a 2020 Thor XG 32 Omni, and really like it. That F 550 chassis and 6.7L diesel engine is awesome. This is our 2nd Thor the previous one was a 2016 31L on the E 450 chassis, we really liked it and had no issues with it, there were a few small things just took care of them myself. But the difference in driving and handling between the 2 is night and day, the F550 is hands down better and much quieter since you don't have that V10 sitting next you. Have not found any issues with the new one after 3200 miles and several nights in it and we are leaving in a week for the mountains of western Wyoming for some dry camping. This is our 3rd motor home and have been fortunate with no issues. They all will have some minor problems seems as though some come out of the factory with bigger issues. Pick the one you like and go camping.

RE: Is camping Fun Anymore

I think all new RVs come with an AC-DC rock cassette tape (thats a band). Don't think RVs have come with cassette players, for around 20 years.:B Whats a cassette player? It came after 8 track players.

RE: RV Dealers on Florida and Southern Georgia

Just purchased a Super C from Lazy Days in Tampa FL, It went very smooth, great experience. We drove from Mo to get it and would do it again.

RE: Replace GENERAC generator in a Gulfstream

525 hrs is pretty low, it should not be low on compression. Have a compression test and a leak down test done on the motor.

RE: Final accounting, 14 years with a Super C

We just traded our 2016 Thor 31L on the E450 chassis for a super C, 2020 Thor XG32 omni on the F550 chassis 6.7L diesel. what a huge difference. Should of purchased the super c the first time around.
