Excel toy haulers

We are looking at 4 season toy haulers and would like in put from anyone who owns an Excel. We presently have a 43 ft. KZ. We have no issues with it but if we go full time we would like some up grades.

Very well built but heavy. Would buy nothing else.

I concur with Chief. We have a 2012 Excel Wild Cargo 41gke and loooooooooove it! We upgraded from a Keystone and can't even begin to tell you how huge the difference is. We are, btw, full timers so an exceptionally well built unit was a must. I researched for over a year before deciding on Excel. One of the best parts about Excel, besides their amazing construction, is they will be glad to custom make a floor plan with you or you could simply modify a plan you like. For us, we took a bedroom design they just came out with, a bathroom they quit building a couple ears ago but still had the molds, a kitchen they already had, and custom designed a 12 ft booth for the dining area. We also chose where we wanted all the electrical outlets. Those are just some of the things we did. But what sold me was their in-house made box frame in which they adjust the camber for YOUR unit, wood framing and pink spun fiberglass insulation (just like a stick and brick). If you have any questions, feel free to ask !

We don't fulltime but would have no problem using our W41GKE for that purpose. We have had it out in both warm and cold weather and am very happy with the insulation and the -23C/-10F construction. The only thing I have changed from what we ordered is the 5500 propane genset. We changed up to a Quiet diesel 7500 and now PI/Excel is offering it as an option. Other wise we think it is one of the best TH on the market today.

Another vote for the Wild Cargo. We've been full timing in ours for almost 2 years. From what I understand, the factory can customize just about anything.

Another vote here for Excel Wild Cargo. I have tested it in the Kansas cold and heat. The low is 8* with electric heaters running and the high is 113* this summer. Stayed comfortable all the time.
