We are loving it and could full-time in it, no problem. Love the king size bed the large bathroom, and the patio. The garage makes these things even more worthy of fulltiming. Besides hauling toys, you can haul anything you might store in your garage at home.

So far, the only problems we've had have been minor. I had to replace the automatic transfer switch, replace the gears in the fuel transfer pump, and replace a water pump. Everything was under warranty and was shipped directly to me and I did the replacements myself.

If you order one, I would recommend; upgrade tires, 3rd AC in garage, dual pane windows, and 6 pt Level-up. I bought mine off of a lot and wish I had them.

Thank you so much for the feedback. My husband is really pushing for the Cyclone, while I am still on the fence. Your info helps a lot.

I ordered my 2009 Coachmen Adrenaline Blast 150 MPH in June 2008. If was my first RV and I didnít know grey water from black. I couldnít find one with the optional fuel station so I ordered it from the factory. I needed a toyhauler big enough to hold an ATV and Motorcycle but light enough for my Jeep Grand Cherokee to pull it.
From almost burning it down on my first trip to upgrading my pull vehicle to a full size pickup, Iím learning a lot. Fixing leaks from Coachmenís poor designs. I love the layout of this rig and go on 10 to 12 trips a year.
One place I camp and ride a lot has no hookups, so I bought a Craftsmen Generator. The factory cord that came with the unit has four 110v outlets, It was wired wrong and one of the outlets was up a phase to 220v. I gave my new camper a 220 volt shot on my first trip burning up the inverter and killing a new Toshibia Flat screen. Sears covered all the damage. I have a Yamaha Generator now.
I hate the way you find out about leaks after the fact. In my third year I noticed the floor getting soft around the door. I caulked the doorway and put down some diamond plate near the door.
This year I have two soft spots in both rear corners by the ramp door and the soft spot near the side door is growing. My roof vents were cracking so I replaced them and added Max Air covers. I also added Eternalbond roof tape to every edge. The floor repair will be my winter project.

We found our home on wheels

It took us 4 RVs to find the perfect model for us. From an older motorhome to a 38' 5th Wheel to our current 32' Excel. They were either too big or had some serious problems. This Excel 4-season Fiver is just what we had been looking for.

After a year of research finally got my first RV. Bought it at our recent RV show, will be doing PDI and all that within 1-2 weeks. I have pretty much all the accessories needed, but did not realize I would need insect screens for the vents, furnace exhaust and what not. Anyone know if vent opening size for a particular brand fridge standard? I think I have Norcold. Thanks for looking!














Openings that need insect screens?

Looks like a good trailer for weekend getaways,...especially in a cooler climate.

Hi Scotty,
I run on road courses, sports car racing. I don't have a cage so it limits me to what I can run but saying that, the only things left on my car that's stock is the body and frame.

I see by your signature you have the Cyclone trailer! Those things are unbelievably nice! How do you like it?
