Thor needs to bring back the Outlaw Super C using that diesel F550 chassis like they are using in the Magnitude, with the 4WD option. That would be an awesome combination

I am gonna invoke what a sales Rep from one of the truck converters told me about that topic, when I asked how well their Class 7/8 based Super C Toy Hauler was selling...

...Paraphrasing;
It's not a good seller...'cuz these rigs can tow. Why give-up interior space in the motorhome for a garage, when the truck can pull such a big trailer for toys with much more capacity and space than the back-end of the motorhome?

The Omni/Magnitude come standard with a 10,000lb hitch. That's a whole lot of toys.

Because a lot of motorized toyhauler owners like to carry off-road toys in the garage. 4WD allows better access to more off-road areas. Not many people would want to tow a trailer down a road that requires 4WD. (And I don't have to mention to you, Steve, that part of the beauty of having an on-board garage is not having the hassle of towing.)

Also, the class 7/8 Super C garage models that I have seen don't have a loading ramp, they use the powered lift gate. And those seem to only have a 1500 lb capacity, which wouldn't even lift my Smart car. I suppose the garage floor in these are too high for a ramp? The OTL design with the step down to the lowered garage floor is a really smart way to fix this problem.

Testify to the Choir, Jeff.

New buyers often don't know how much they don't know.
But they want what they want and makers are giving it to them...for all these new RV's.

Safe travels
