Good for you. I had a f750 based funmover 39c for 12 years. C7 cat engine. We put 92k on it over the years 2005 to 2017. We are avid dirt bikers, off roaders, towed a jeep. I chose the f750 vs the kodiak 5500 at the time because it was more robust and carry capacity. We weren't as lucky on the repairs ?????? Cab chassis .. heui pump went out, warranty. (2004 year problem) lost air compressor governor, dual tank switch, and one brake air tank sprung leak, rust accumulation. House? Slide out, bathroom tub leak onto floor, generator 7500 needed to be pulled for simple belt change (no slide out tray..poor design) minor slide leaks, microwave oven gave up ghost, mounting rattles,and hydraulic motor leak for lift on storage area come to mind. 7.7 to 8.1 towing a Jeep Rubicon all over the west where we like to ride, camp and sometimes family reunions. Could sleep a bunch in back cargo hold! Got some right offs for it as I used it to haul supplies or occasional carpentry work in back shop area. (I'm in the rental housing business)

Was hectic to drive the monster around curvey roads. Sold it, got a very common v10 based short class C. More "uptime" to use a computer term for equipment availability. Nowadays take only 1 bike on back of towed jeep. ..if I even take the jeep. Life is simpler, less hassles, and I like it best.

Best RV is the one you want for the stage in life you're at.

Good deal

An F750 funmover like yours was the first Super C I saw. Nice but a little more than I wanted to take down the road and a little beyond our budget. The Kodiak turned out to be the sweet spot. With all of the choices in the RV market there is something for everyone. Find yours and have fun.

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.

Can't go wrong with a Super C.


2017 Haulmark 45' Super C 600hp, 12 speed I shift transmission, tandem drive axles, 3 stage engine brake, towing 26' trailer with an 08 explorer inside.
