Super C adaptability

At the risk of hijacking my own thread: one of hte main reasons for owning a Super C has to be the compatibility with regular vehicles. If you buy beyond your comfort with using one in that regime, then the Super C is probably not optimal for your purposes. Mine will fit in my driveway, use almost any regular diesel pump, fills both tanks from the same side, has 500 miles range with reserve solo and 400 miles with 10K lbs under tow; G rated tires and able to maintain 70 mph up and down hills with a transmission brake, and SHOULD be serviceable by any Ford light truck dealer. It does take two spots at Walmart or your favorite restaurant, is larger than a van conversion by far and has all the same appliances that can fail as an A would have including the big stuff like generator and water heater. It has enough water and tank space for 3 days, 4 at a pinch but you can refill the water tank in 30 mins from 5 gallon collapsible plastic jugs.

So as in all RV matters everything is a compromise but the failure of the Ford brand to address its designated market is something I missed.

Problem is that net searches usually throw up truck service centers. And that means trucks with a GW greater than 40K lbs. Not the sort of thing for a Super C. After all its just a Ford F350/3500 with a bigger chassis.

I totally agree with the ease of maintenance and repairs on super c chassis.. I have a 6.6 duramax diesel and perform my own maintenance work.. With the tilting front clip it's easier to work on than a pickup with the same engine.. I also love the big truck feel power.

If you would like air ride on a super C check out NeXus RV they have a 36ft Ghost that has rear air ride on a International chassis that has a Cummins diesel. We will be looking at ordering one in 2017.

I looked at their product but with my needs they proved too rich for my pocket and at 36' way too large. Sure I would love the space but I do not need the space. Plus the overhang between the rear wheels and the hitch is too large for towing 1750 lbs of hitch weight IMO.
