It’s almost Memorial Day and the kids will be getting out of school before we know it. Now is the perfect time to take a look at the new Windsport 34J Bunk House Class A motorhomes from Thor Motor Coach, North America’s #1 Motorhome Brand. This ingenious bunk bed floorplan provides a superior overall living environment compared to other bunk bed models in the market.
With a complete overhaul in 2013, the Windsport is even better with the addition of the 34J Bunk House. The innovate floorplan design removes the bunks from the camp side of the coach, allowing parents and grandparents time outside, under the patio awning, without disturbing the kids. This ingenious move opens up space for an optional exterior kitchen in the basement. Packed full of amenities, including a generous countertop area with integrated sink, portable grill, and refrigerator this motorhome, the outside kitchen is a tailgating dream.
Flexibility to convert from a sleeping area, to a sitting area, or a full length wardrobe adjusts the 34J to the owners need today and as the family grows. A pair of LCD TV’s allow for personalized viewing in each bunk. Once converted to a sofa, the top bunk TV can be removed and located across the hall for family viewing.
Living room arrangements are very family-oriented, as the seating in the coach is centrally located. Multiple players can all join in the action of family game night or share the bucket of popcorn during movie night. An optional overhead bunk provides full size sleeping accommodations above the cockpit seats, bringing the overall all sleeping capacity to eight.
The exterior is handsomely finished with Thor Motor Coach’s HD-MAX™ exterior standard along with optional full body paint packages for an ultra-high-end look. Side-hinged slam latches on most exterior baggage doors make accessing the basement storage a snap, while the no-maintenance rotocast storage trunks are simple to wipe clean. A 32” LCD exterior TV located under the patio awning is now optional.
Standard features on all 34J Class A Bunk Houses include an Onan RV 5,500 watt generator, 50-amp service, dual 13,500-Btu air conditioners and a gas/electric water heater.

Buoyed by a surprisingly strong December, wholesale shipments to RV retailers soared to close the 2010 year at 242,300 units, up 45.6% over 2009 and the highest annual totals for RV shipments in the past three years.
Underscoring an improved level of dealer confidence, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) reported today (Jan. 26) that total wholesale shipments to retailers of all RVs increased to 18,300 units in RVIA’s December 2010 survey of manufacturers.
The total was 36.5% greater than last month and 30.7% greater than this same month last year.
Shipments of all towable RVs were at 16,400 units in December 2010, up 32.3% over the final month the previous year, while motorhome shipments totaled 1,900 units, a gain of 18.8% over December 2009. Seasonally adjusted, the December total represents an annualized rate of more than 295,000 units, the best monthly showing since April 2008.
No towable or motorized segment reported a shipment decrease compared to the previous year, although Class B coaches remained level for the month-to-month comparison and was the only segment to show a decline in year-to-date deliveries.
Shipments by segment were as follows:
Travel trailers: 10,400, up 23.8% for the month, and 42.3% for the year (144,500).

Tucson, AZ (Vocus) August 24, 2010 – Beaudry RV Company reports Class A RV sales continuing to rise. “January saw the worst of the recession pass,” says Scott Beaudry of Beaudry RV Company. “When a recession hits, Class A sales are the first to drop. Watching this sector of the RV market rebound is encouraging. It shows that consumers are feeling more confident in the economy and in their own future.”
According to Richard Curtain of RVIA, Class A motorhomes are expected to spike 90% in 2010 and continue to increase into 2011, although the increase for next year is expected to show a more gradual growth of 11%. Beaudry RV Company isn’t the only one to notice the rise in sales, Class A sales tripled in June across the country according to RVIA. With 27,000 units sold, Class A motor homes have reached their highest level in more than two years.
“The Monaco line of Class A RVs has been really popular this year,” says Beaudry. “Consumers are looking for quality and luxury and Monaco delivers both of those. Other popular manufacturers include Forest River and Newmar.
The trend is balanced by the popularity of lightweight travel trailers that have also jumped sales this year. Environmentally minded vacationers are going with the less-is-more philosophy. Both high-end and economical vehicles are stealing the sales this year. Next year, sales may balance out with a more gradual rise including sales of Class B and Class C RVs and fifth wheels.
Beaudry RV Company has been a leader in the RV Industry for over 40 years. Their customer service, parts department and summer events set them apart from other RV companies. They carry an extensive selection of Class A, Class B and Class C RVs, motorhomes, travel trailers and more.
