Four Winds International Corp. has mounted for the first time a floorplan in its mainstream Chateau, Dutchmen, and Four Winds Class C motorhomes on a Chevrolet C5500 Kodiak medium-duty chassis. The double slideout 34-footer, shown here on an entry-level Four Winds minimotorhome, can be equipped with 300-hp Vortec gasoline or 300-hp Duramax diesel engines. “It is designed to appeal to those looking for a Class C motorhome with added power and reliability,” said Scott Jacobson, national sales manager for the Thor Industries Inc. subsidiary. Four Winds’ other Class C’s are built on Ford or Chevrolet cutaway pickup chassis. Jacobson said the 19,500-pound GVWR Kodiak chassis allowed the company to design a minimotorhome with more of a Class A motorhome feel. Along with 7-foot interior ceiling heights, standard features include a large double-door refrigerator, three distinctive interior decor packages, oak cabinetry and push button hydraulic jacks. The floorplan, which went into production in January, starts at a retail base price of $102,130.
