Trail Wagons Inc., dba Chinook RV, Yakima, Wash., has converted its 24-foot Maverick Class C motorhome from a Chevy to a Ford E-450 Super Duty chassis, allowing for a new side-door floorplan. The layout is equipped with a dry bath to help bring the coach in at a retail base price of $95,000. The Maverick, which previously featured a wet bath and rear-door floorplan, debuted without fanfare in January. At last month’s Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show in Hershey Chinook rolled out the upgraded version featuring hardwood cabinets, heat-pump-equipped roof air conditioning, a larger sofa bed and separate dinette. “We wanted a coach that was capable of handling a small, younger family of four,” said John Cehlist, eastern region sales manager. “We’ve gone solely with Ford because it gives a better ride and it has a 305-hp V10 engine.”
