First Weekend with the Magnitude XG32 (pics)


https://www.smugmug.com/app/organize/RV-Pics/i-gMQHpqb
https://www.smugmug.com/app/organize/RV-Pics/i-TxJp7JZ

A funny thing happened on the way to the Labor Day weekend in the wilds of Utah. I turned into an RV show. On the way out with a fuel stop, and a Walmart grocery stop, I had 5 people stop to talk about the XG32. I had several more drive by and take pictures. They ignored my cool new Rubicon. One person asked to look inside, but I told him my wife was laying down and resting. (White lie) At the State Park, the same thing. And on the way home, just 3 people.

I added an official Ford 4x4 to the back of the coach, and added chrome lettering to the front of the hood's indented "SUPER DUTY".

The SG32 drove well, had tons of power, and was so much easier to deal with than the huge 5th wheel we replaced.

I had a gas class A pass me on the flat, and then I blew by him on a mountain pass, I was doing the speed limit. A good testament to the power of the diesel.

I agree, no matter where we go or stay at, people want to talk about and look at our XG32.
It is a lot of fun blowing by everyone going up the hills and through the mountains. After many years with a couple of different gas powered C's, it is actually fun to drive an RV.

Right!! I don't think that you can explain how much difference there is between the Super C's power and regular diesel or gas units until you have driven one. I never thought the power difference would be as much as it is!!

We have the BH35, bought it in June and have had the same experience. People passing you on the road and in the RV parks, come up and comment on the coach. I think we are all part of something that is going to get bigger and bigger. These Super C's are going to take off. My wife always mentions that she is much less afraid to drive this coach as it is like driving our F150. Thor is on to something here along with the other Super C manufacturers, now we just need them to focus on a real quality product they have a gold mine

I tried to view this post on my phone, and the smugmug links wanted me to do a sign-in. Can you see them?

Retry of the images, not doing too well with images

Hey guys,
Congrats in the Magnitude. I’m so exited for you and I can’t wait until November to pick up mine. I have yet to test drive one, but listening to everyone’s stories, I feel confident I made the right decision.
Just an FYI.. I actually spoke to a representative Dereck from Thor today about the 4 wheel drive system. I needed to clear up if this rv could be driven on the beach... Derek told me a clear - Yes. He has many clients that drive these units on the beach all the time.

The beach thing is something I'd be careful with. These have hiway tires. Also, if you ever get a 4x4 stuck, you are really stuck. Make sure you can air down, and you have a good air pump. I have a Smittybilt pump and it is pretty fast for airing up. Mine is such a car-show. You will have to get an excuse when people ask to go inside. My dog bites, my wife is asleep with a headache, or because of COVID we can't. I used the wife was resting on my last trip.

Just say no. Did it three times with my rig in 2 days. No excuse needed.

My 2015

Have a 2015 Four Winds SK35 since new. Same things happen to us all the time. Have had some problems but that's expected. The Powerstroke is really nice in the mountains. Mine is 1.5 bath witch is nice. I have become a self proclaimed expert on this model especially with electrical problems. But overall it's been a good coach.

We love out Thor Super C. My first rv was a regular c, then I went to a gas A, then two diesel pushers over the years. We downsized to an sf35 and can’t believe the great way it handles. When we went to Colorado, it went up the high mountain passes like a pickup truck. Love that Ford power stroke. Enjoy!

Congratulations and enjoy. It is a blast to drive.
Stock tires on the beach will be terrible, I put on Toyo M655's for a more aggressive tread. It did take about 500 miles to break the tires in, felt very loose during the break in miles. Now it's back to driving great.
Added a spare tire and mounted under the back tail. I couldn't imagine having a 4x4 and no spare tire!

You guys have the 2nd gen 6.7L powerstroke? Had it in my F350 Dually. Yes, itíll get up and go. I dont understand why Ford canít put that on an F53 chassis.

Unable to see any of your pictures. Tried creating a 14 day account and then it couldn't find your page from either link. Hope you had a great time though.

can ou post more pics of your spare, and the front bumper. Did the front bumper change the mileage, or driving, etc? The ground effect of the front bumper is supposed to help with mileage. Like the Ford Factory air dam.
