2015 Four Winds 35SK

We are moving up from a toy hauler to a C Class and are considering the 2015 Four Winds 35SK. The draw is the diesel engine, roomy floor plan, and towing capacity of 10K. We are new to the C Class so I wanted to get more information on both the specific model we are considering and the C Class in general before we make this jump. We "boondock" camp about 90% of the time with our dirtbikes and sometimes our boat. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!

Residential fridge makes it hard to boondock. We have a 2014 33sw, pulls great. We pull a 22' enclosed trailer no problem and get 9-10mpg with the trailer. But we just traded it in for a Dynamax Force.

If your RV has an adequate Generator RVing without AC connections, having an Residential Refrigerator is not a issue.

Agreed if you have the diesel generator, but you can burn up a lot of propane otherwise. Just my 2 cents

Second on the residential fridge drawing a lot of battery juice.... we added 400Watts of solar to keep it up- works well now for boondocking...

Look at the OCCC. The guys that own one of these can correct me, but when I looked at them it was only around 2000 lbs. Not much considering the 19,500 GVWR. That is around gas Class C territory. The gaser should easily tow your dirt bikes or boat. I figured with the cost difference between gas and diesel, price of oil changes, filters, the cost of ownership should be about equal. I also thought for it's size, the interior while bigger than gas really wasn't that great. The only really benefit I saw was if you needed more than 5K towing capacity with is what the gassers have.

We decided on a 34' Class A. when we buy this fall. Many out there with over 100,000 miles on them. And the Class is more roomier. The Ford chassis/engine/transmission virtually maintenance free -- some people say they are bullet proof.


my 2 cents
