Our "New to US" Fourwinds Majestic 28A

After a few years of discussion between my other half (OK Me BEGGING and HE going .. Hmmm do you REALLY Need this???) and a LOT of research about what would best fit our budget and our unique needs, we ended up purchasing a previous rental MH from CruiseAmerica RV.

First model was their 25' called the 24A. After a month it was decided that we really needed a bit more room so we traded in that on one of their 28A's (29').

We had a dryer fire in our home this past winter and that caused a need to move out of the house. With 7 large dogs and 4 horses finding a rental at all let alone for 'a few months' (which so far has turned into 6 months of rebuilding) we spoke with our Farmers insurance company about what we could do and they gave us the rental allowance straight up based off of local rental/furnishing rates so we've been able to put a considerable amount down on this and have it 3/4's paid off already.

The primary use for this will be going to dog shows. The back bed can be removed and a custom supported platform across the whole area gives me room for a lot of crates on top and a lot of equipment storage below for those items too large or too sensitive ot weather to be carried in the outdoor bays.

We will of course also use it for a few trips together a year (taking it camping this coming weekend as a matter of fact!)

I also will be using it to go to some of our local Horse shows with our smaller trailer (we have a lovely 8' Elkhorn Camper that fits on my F350 Diesel Dually 4x4 for bigger hauls).

Until I can afford my custom Diesel fun hauler MH this is working beautifully for us

Sorry about the dryer fire, but you picked a nice unit for what you need.
Very similar to the layout in our Coachmen 30 QB, we have enjoyed many miles of smiles with our 4 dogs, they love to travel by RV, when I bring it from storage, they know a trip is coming, and they come every time.

Enjoy!
Andrew
