Windsport width without awning
 
Hello, I wish to import a Windsport into New Zealand, we can have vehicles up to 2.5m (98.4") on our roads. I have been told that all windsport models will just scrap in with the awning removed. However before I fly over to purchase one can any PLEASE give me the out side wall to out side wall measurement. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

My roof top side to side measures 99.5". This does not include the slide toppers and the awning. You may want to inquire about Thor's A.C.E. line of motorcoach. They may be a narrower in width.

The Axis/Vegas units are only 94" exterior width, but they are probably a bit smaller than what you were looking for given the size of the Windsport.

Note that the ACE units are also listed at 99" wide on the Thor website (Windsport's are 99" as well).

Just browsing around Thor's website it looks like anything built on Ford's F-53 chassis is 99" or 101" in width.

Even looking at other manufacturer's, like Forest River's Georgetown motorhomes (also built on the F-53 chassis) its still 99.5" wide.

Also...if you are looking further...on the Thor Motorhomes website...checkout the new coaches on the Ford Transit body..and those on the Mercedes frame..some are gas some diesel ... they are, generally, a narrower body.

good luck in your search !

Mmmmmm getting a bit small, the size of the American motorhomes is the draw card, was really hoping that the Windsport with he awning off would just come under the 2.5m width. I am going to have to rethink this exercise. many thanks
