Has anyone seen a 2008 Rexhall motorhome, either Aerbus or Rose Air. From their website they use the Workhorse UFO chassis. What is unique is the slideouts. The roof portion extend out as well the sidewall. But I have been able to tell from the pictures, how is the gap protected. Curious, especially if there are any owners out there. Very different styling. Thanks

I don't think it is really much different than other slideouts. If you look closely at the PICTURES you will notice that the central portion of the roof is a bit higher than the edges, providing a place for the usual top "wiper" seal at the top edge and a butt seal on the interior side. Makes for a great look, though, and I'll bet the ceiling height is the slides is nearly that of the central area.

Rexhall has always been innovative and this is another great example.

This model was open for viewing (but not driving) at this years Quartzsite show in Arizona. The look and atmosphere were very 'Diesel Pusher' and the bay storage was phenomenally large. As we were inspecting the interior of the coach, a couple next to us asked if this was a Cat or Cummings diesel. When they were told it was a gas powered rear engine model, the guy told his wife that the salesman didn't know anything about what he was selling and went to look for himself. It really is quite unusual to have a front entry gas unit. The ceilings inside were indeed high and felt more like an Alpha than a Rexhall. Overall, we were very impressed and are looking forward to seeing other manufacturers designs for the UFO chassis.

I also had the opportunity to check the one out in Quartzsite and was very impressed with it.

One downside was, when both full-length slides were in, you had to crawl over the bed to get to the rear bathroom.

The rep showing the coach said they were equipping the bed with super strong gas struts so you could leave the bed raised while slides were in so as to facilitate access to the rear bathroom. Since it's a side bed, it would have made more sense to use a Murphy bed arrangement.

Oh well!! other than that, super nice coach, also liked the side hinged basement storage doors and the full pass through storage compartments.

I would seriously consider one if in the market for a new coach. Only wish the Ford v-10 engine would be an option. (ok, now I'm gonna get it from the 8.1 fans)--LOL

Cheers, Jim

For the two posters who saw this unit, did the salesmen make mention as to why they are not aggressively marketing this unit. I am very impressed with the pics of this unit and looking forward to actually seeing one in person. IMHO, this is the best looking coach I have ever seen and have fallen in love with it thus far. I was disappointed that they did not show up at the Tampa show last year or any of the other shows we visited. How was the outside finish, workmenship, fit and did they have a price on it? Thanks gang.

Thanks for the replys. I studied the pictures and it was the interior pictures that finally lit the old noggin. Very innovative, indeed. As fun time asked, how was the fit and finish, etc. Unfortunately, probably out my price range (around $19.95 including tax). I did send an e-mail to factory to find out whether using dealers or marketing direct. They do not appear to marketing aggressively.

fun time, Bob Hughes was the rep I spoke with but I really didn't discuss their marketing plans. I rather got the impression that if you wanted one, you ordered it directly from the factory as I don't believe they have it at any dealership locations.

Ironically, Bob was formerly with Mountain High Coachworks, the outfit that built our Residency then later in 2001 closed their plant and went out of business.

As best as I can recollect the MSRP was around $168,000 or so, pretty high for a gas powered rig.

Don't know if they would discount them any, didn't ask, as I wasn't interested in buying at the time.
