2009 Four Winds Hurricane 33H motorhome

2009 Four Winds Hurricane 33H Class A motorhome, with Ford V-10. 16,000 miles.
I am going to take Kelly to look at this motorhome tomorrow.. I looked at it today. It is in great looking shape, inside outside , underneath and on top. Tires are new 2016.

Anything that I should look out for?? It has a 5000 pound hitch on it now. Can I put a heavier hitch on it. 10,000 pound hitch. I would like to tow my racecar trailer 2 or 3 times a year. Would weigh about 8000 pounds.

Thanks for any help, Paul

As a 31D Hurricane ower what I would advise to check is delamination around the below floor storage compartment doors. The fiberglass should be very stiff with no give what so ever when push on. If you can get on the roof check the sealant for both the front and rear caps to roof and around the shower sky light. No splits or cracking. Even a hairline split will let water in.

The Hurricane's are good basic rigs. Not a lot of bling or flash but easy to maintain and with simple systems easy to fix even for a shade tree mechanic but water leaks will quickly shorten it's working life.

The hitch change is going to a problem. If you crawl under the back end you'll find extensions on the very long framing behind the rear axle. Also there might not be enough capacity in chassis to tow 5K lbs. What you are asking the coach to do might be pushing it's limits.

Good luck.
