Picture of skid wheels I added, there is actually on each side of the hitch. Our driveway is very steep and we drug the hitch even when entering at an angle. Only took about 15 min to install both wheels. Worth every penny to not scrape the hitch!

I don't know why my photos always loads tilted 90 degrees, they aren't that way in my photo album???

Might as well show picture of ladder rack too. Folds out of the way when not being used, locks in position to use. Don't have bicycles but figured I could use it for extra chairs or maybe a ladder if needed. Bolts to the ladder and seems pretty sturdy.

We had a central vac installed in a bay of our Tuscany. Used the vac several times before I decided to empty the bag, only, no bag in the vac!!! Dust and dirt everywhere in the bay, learned another lesson about always checking and not assuming. Seems like I can never learn that lesson for some reason!

When I ordered I did the add a second one for shipping cost. The cover moved a round a lot when sitting on it so we used both covers. One just for the back and the other for the seat. Doing it this way the covers stays in place a lot better.

I ordered these from Amazon. I got the wheels that swivel, figure if I'm on an incline and turning there won't be any side stress on the wheels. The swivel wheels are a little taller which also worked good because of how steep the entry to our driveway is.

Kev,
The Hurricane and Windsport are 'cousins' - like the Axis and Vegas...

I'm happy with my 2014 Hurricane (32A). It's finding a specific floorplan that works for your needs as with any size/brand/model.

The significant difference (aside from size) when going to the Windsport/Hurricane is that you have an option of 50A on at least some models - typically adds a second AC unit when selected. I would recommend it - especially in FL - you are trying to cool a much larger area. Aside of a FL summer, I typically only use one - but nice to have the second when needed.

50A isn't just a 20A difference from 30A... RV 30 amp service is ONE leg of 110 at 30 amps.... RV 50 amp service is TWO legs of 110 at 50 amps or 100 amps total (when plugged into a fully configured pedestal). Why the cord is MUCH larger/heavier/expensive.

Halfprice (Jerry), Dino, and I all have essentially the same model, a 29M, and I think I can speak for all of us and say we love them. So far Jerry is in the lead with the most mods, Dino is running a close second!

The 29M is very roomy for its size, drives nice, and is very comfortable. We traded down from a Tuscany due to storage problems after our move to Texas and we were concerned about losing all the room we had before. After a couple of trips we decided the 29M had plenty of room for us and couldn't be happier!!!

We have the 50 amp option, dual AC (which we need for Texas summer), power drivers seat, pretty much all the options, Dino and Jerry's coachs are the same.

We up graded from a 29 foot class C to a Windsport 35M. We love the new floor plan. Has 1 1/2 baths. U can travel with guests and still have privacy. Great storage bays. Well lit and full width storage. Did the CHP. It handles great. Passing trucks and buses don't bother it.
