Magne Shades New For Vegas

Brand new Magne Shades windshield and side windows. Never put on coach. I bought a new coach and they won't fit new coach.
Paid 900.00 make a reasonable offer.

2017 Thor Windsport 31S. I knew I shouldn't have gone to that damn show. She wanted something bigger and we didn't like Ace. Outside kitchen is also nice and I really wanted an inverter.

I had no intention of buy a new coach but she saw the Windsport at the show.
I had already ordered the Magne Shades never put them on coach. Put down a deposit on the coach and waiting for one to arrive since they sold all the ones in stock at the show.. Still not a done deal until I test drive the coach. Larry How do you like the Hurricane?

Kev, congratulations on your soon be be new Windsport!!! We love our outside kitchen too! I don't have the fridge plugged in but do use it to store extra drinks in. Added a paper towel holder for when we're cooking out.

First mod you need to do is the CHF, makes a HUGE difference in how the Windsport drives! Hope you enjoy it!!!

Thanks SuperD. I like the paper towel mod, great idea. I am waiting for one to arrive to do a test drive before I make the final plunge. I am worried it won't handle as good as my Vegas. After adding the steering stabilizer and Sumo Springs my Vegas drives like a SUV. Did you do the CHF yourself and what did you do?
Thanks

Considering the size and the fact the Windsport is on an F-53 chassis, I don't think the ride is bad. Doing the CHF makes a big difference around semi's and in the wind. The CHF does stiffen the ride slightly but I think the ride is actually better!

Yes, I did the CHF myself, really not bad if you don't mind crawling under your coach. The CHF is moving the links on the front and rear swaybars to a different mounting position on the bars. You need 15 & 18 mm sockets, a torque wrench set to 65 ft/lbs and maybe a scissor jack. There are several threads that outline the details on this forum and also You Tube. (Search F-53 CHF) Takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete. The CHF has been done by hundreds of owners with great results!

Best of luck with your purchase, lets us know how it turns out! If you have other questions, please ask!

I don't understand why the dealers get them here with one unless you order it.

Getting a second AC is dependent on what the dealer orders. Thor doesn't do custom builds, only what dealer orders, and these are paid for before the coach is built. The dealer I purchased from, MHSRV in Texas, always orders dual ACs, if available, due to the Texas heat.
