My husband (chazfaz) and I currently have a Winnebago Adventurer 37B. But are interested in the Dynamax Grand Sport. I was wondering if anyone on this forum has experience with the Grand Sport M2 or Columbia? If so what are the pros and cons of this unit?

Ellen,if I were in the market for a Dynamax type vehicle,I would certainly consider the ShowHauler in my shopping trips....

Bill Rowell,(Warpath)on these forums recently purchased a ShowHauler...here are pictures of his rig.

I just saw a place that is building Show-Hauler type coaches. Seems it was called Turn Key and it is loacted on Hwy 2978 between Tomball and Conroe TX.

I'll try to locate a link.

I have also been checking them out a little and trying to get information on them. I think the 40 gal gray and 40 gal black tanks are too small for a rig of of that size and carrying capacity.
I also thought the storage inside and in the bays leave something to be desired.
That being said, I am driving down to Mocksville, NC on Friday to drive one

Did you test drive the Grand Sport?
If so, would you consider giving your opinion? I'm looking at them my self.

Hello - I just checked out the Dynamax/Grand Sport a week or so ago - was firmly convinced I wanted one. But, interior was too dark and cramped. Window at head of bed not good for propping pillows up and reading, small storage areas. Disappointed, sso, am still looking.....

I guess this thread has played out since the last post was in May, but if anyone is interested my husband and I own a dynamax grandsport and have had a wonderful experience. It drives beautifully and everything inside is very sturdy and well equiped. We absolutely love it and are thinking of trading up to a 45' in the future.

As I posted on one of the other forums, I think there are beautiful rigs.

A word of caution, many of the "upper class" RV parks consider these to be Class C and will not allow them. I don't quite understand that reasoning, but just thought I would pass along what I know.

Jim, your right about the class A tag but you know what, I'll take my money and 38 foot Grand Sport elsewhere. Small trade off for the incredible ride on that Freightliner truck chassis.

Except for the cab difference my coach is just like my 2005 Tiffen DP. Only difference is my Dynamax had a msrp over $300,000. If those CG's were trying to keep out low end C's, B's and 5th wheels they should review the new designs. Things change!
