Four Winds Optimistic About National RV Show

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

The distinction between motorhome classes has traditionally been as much
about convenience as cost — Class A owners tend to gravitate toward
full-service campgrounds, while many Class C enthusiasts are more
inclined to head off into the sunset. The problem, though, was that they
couldn’t bring much back from their travels. Class C coaches —
especially larger units with slideouts — really test the limits of
their lower gross vehicle weight rated (gvwr) platforms and engines.

By introducing a new line of Class C coaches built on Chevrolet’s medium-duty Kodiak chassis, Four Winds International (fourwinds-rv.com)
provides the coaches with what they’ve been missing. The new models,
ranging from 32 to 35 feet and sporting one, two or three slideouts,
boast a 19,500-pound gvwr — and a minimum 6,500-pound towing capacity
along with a 10,000-pound-rated hitch receiver. Plus, owners have a
choice of the standard 325-hp Vortec gasoline engine or an optional
Duramax diesel (both backed by an Allison 1000 automatic).

“This Class C has more towing capability than most gas and even
some diesel Class A motorhomes,” noted Scott Jacobson, national sales
manager for Four Winds International.

Available for all three of Four Winds’ Class C brands (which
also includes Chateau and Dutchmen) in a choice of floorplans, the
Kodiak also allows for features (like 7-foot ceiling heights) typically
found on a Class A coach. Owners can continue to dress it out in “Class A
finery” by choosing options ranging from maple or cherry cabinetry, an
entertainment center with 27-inch television and a slideout bunk, Luxor
leather furniture and distinctive paint packages.
