Our Super C

We've owned this for some time, so perhaps it doesn't fit the "New Rig Show-Off" thread, but oh well. After many years of owning many different rigs, we finally got the perfect (for us) rig. Unfortunately, do to another home purchase (it's complicated....really complicated), we may end up selling our rig (in hopes of being able to find another one in a couple of years). But, as of now it's ours and we love to use it and with the RV market such that it is, we'll most likely continue to own it. If you ever get a chance to get a RV that is based on a Ford F-550 chassis (as opposed to a van chassis), I'd highly recommend it. The difference between a truck chassis and a van cutaway chassis is like night and day. The F-550 turns on a dime, has more room, is quieter, is much stronger, and so on. Much of the ride comfort probably has to do with the Ultra Ride rear suspension (all air, no leaf springs, you know, like big rigs). It's amazing how easy it is to maneuver a crowded parking lot with this rig as the F550 turns so sharp. Perhaps with the pending demise of the E-Series, RV companies will figure this out and start building more F550-based rigs. Ya, probably not. Anyway, with that, here's our rig (30'11" length, 102" width):



Very aerodynamic. This has air-sealed slides. Love this feature. No slide toppers or unsightly wipers, but more importantly, it creates a serious seal. Nice and sleek.



Another reason I love the air-sealed slides. Very sano.



Cherry wood throughout (not a single piece of vinyl covered luan to be found). If it isn't cherry, then it's optima leather on the remaining walls and ceiling.



This is some smart engineering: The raised panel solid cherry door for the bathroom, opens up, and locks open, for shower and bedroom privacy. One door pulls double duty. Yes, for you low-brow types, like me, there's a pun buried in there.



Perhaps my favorite feature





Converts to a bed



Moen sinks and faucets (I found that Moen facet at Home Depot and it was over $300. We don't have a $300 faucet in our house). They really went over the top with the features.



A second TV in the bedroom. This is a 12v LED TV. Since the DirecTV system (in-motion) is 12v as well, a person could watch HBO going down the interstate w/out having to run the genny or inverter. We don't use this TV, so it's wasted on us, but kinda cool regardless.



Love this Girard boxed awning. It's huge, remote controlled, automatically retracts if the wind picks up too much, and no down supports. Don't see a lot of tall bus style curved doors on RVs. Inside, there's an air-actuated stepwell cover that covers the stepwell when inside (creates even more room and you don't fall into the stepwell).



Works well up at our local ski resort too.

Well, don't want to be too much of a thread hog. Looking forward to another weekend of RVing.

Thanks. Even when closed up it has plenty of room, which is great when we're camping and it's snowing.

Thank you. It's really easy to drive. Easier than anything we've owned prior, or my in-laws' RVs. The in-laws are jealous, so I consider that a win.

There are four of us, so the way we work it is the teenager daughter gets the converted horseshoe dining area (makes a semi-circular bed that even Austin Powers would appreciate) and her brother crashes out on a cot set up along side it. Leaves plenty of room to get around, if need be, and only takes a moment to set up. Still, I'm kind of half considering making a slide-in bunk in the dining area. These people didn't skimp on the steel (they build limo buses), so there is plenty of welded steel square tubing in the slide out (heck the shell is made with 1"x1" welded steel square tubing). I could make a pair of nice cherry rails that match the rest of the woodwork (yup, I'd have to dig out my router) and make a two-piece slide in bunk for The Boy about half way up. I could store it in the bedroom, out of the way, when not in use. Ah, probably not. I like the way we do it now.

Oh yea, I forgot, it has one of these too:
