Super C Motorhomes are back at Thor Motor Coach with the introduction of the new 33SW F550 Super C Motorhomes. These new “Heavy Duty” diesel powered Ford F-550 Super Duty class C motorhomes will be available in both the Four Winds and Chateau brands, rounding out two of the most recognized and popular Class C RV brands in the market.

Sporting a Ford F-550 chassis, the 33SW motorhomes have a GVWR topping out at 19,500-lbs.  Power comes from a fuel sipping PowerStroke™ 6.7L diesel engine flexing a full 300-hp, and hefty 660-lb.ft, of torque.  That powerful combination, along with the Ford 6-speed transmission allows the 33SW to maximize the 10,000-lb. trailer hitch.  The coach comes standard with an electronic brake controller integrated in the dash, so consumers simply get in and go.

Thor Motor Coach’s HD-MAX™ full color exteriors offer a sizzling, high-end exterior finish.  Every 33SW Super C comes with a long list of standard exterior features which include a 5.5 Onan generator with automatic start, dual 13.5K roof air conditioners, slam latch baggage doors, one-touch Bigfoot leveling jacks and a fully molded one-piece front cap.

Things get even better inside the motorhome with features which resemble a luxury yacht, instead of a typical class C motorhome.  Residential refrigerator, 30” over the range microwave, Solid surface countertops, solar and privacy window roller shades, and an 1800-watt power inverter make the short list of the motorhome’s game changing features.

“We are confident these new Super C’s will turn heads with the additional living space created using the Ford F550 super duty chassis.   Features like diesel power, more maneuverability, increased towing capability and better driving comfort  are what our customers tell us is missing from the larger Class C RV market”, remarked Joel Grimm, National Sales Manager for gas motorhomes at Thor Motor Coach.

Campers in Michigan State ParkThe Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced it wants to hear from residents interested in spending their summer enjoying Michigan’s great outdoors while providing a valuable service, serving as hosts at Michigan state parks and state forest campgrounds for the 2013 camping season.

Hosts direct visitors to their campsites, answer questions about the park or state forest, arrange campground activities and perform light maintenance and other services, depending on their talents and interests. In return for their volunteer service, hosts are allowed to camp in the state park or state forest campground at no charge.

Hosts can be individuals or teams. They must be at least 18 years old, provide 30 hours of service per week (including weekends and holidays), serve a minimum of four consecutive weeks and furnish their own camping unit, equipment and personal items. Some host assignments will begin as early as April, with some assignments lasting through October.

Successful applicants are chosen by park and forest managers, who may require an interview or request additional information. Selection is based on the individual’s familiarity with the state park or state forest system, his or her camping experience, special skills, availability, knowledge of the area, and the needs of the specific park or forest campground.

Host training for the 2013 camping season will be held sometime in middle to late April 2013 at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center in Roscommon. Special arrangements can be made for those who cannot make the training dates.

Applications and information about the host program are available on the DNR website,www.michigan.gov/dnrvolunteers. Those interested in serving as campground hosts at a state park should apply directly to the park of their choice.

For more information on the DNR’s campground host program in state parks or state forest campgrounds, contact Miguel Rodriguez at (517) 241-4129.

Thor Motor Coach ha introduced a new redesigned and bolder Outlaw toy hauler motorhome with the introduction of the 37LS model earlier this year.  Joining the Outlaw’s posse is the all new 37MD, the new model provides even more storage and sleeping capacity along with the most flexible hauling options in this very popular toy hauling Class A RV.

The 37MD extends the Outlaw brand as the most flexible motorhome available by adding a second slide room, which is dual-purposed as a second living area or dedicated bedroom.  This functionality is the result of input from consumers looking to own a motorized toy hauler for hauling people and toys, but also want to have a single motorhome that can be converted for full-time camping.

The 37MD exterior provides massive, side-opening, storage compartments, full body paint packages and separate entries for the living room and garage.  An exterior fueling station can be used to fill-up ATV’s and dirt bikes, while outside entertainment options include garage radio controls, wall mounted marine grade speakers and 32” LCD TV located under the patio awning.

Inside the coach an array of upgrade appointments await, with Leatherette seating surfaces, solid surface kitchen countertop, 30” over the range convection microwave and easy-clean vinyl flooring throughout the entire coach.  A new optional overhead bunk bed is located above the cockpit for added sleeping flexibility.  The second living room/bedroom has a convertible sofa that makes into a queen sized air bed with a loft area for kids or storage.
