Saw a fugly motorhome yesterday...

Thor Vegas... With a face only a mother could love!!!
That fish bowl windshield looked horrendous and too big proportionally, imo.
So big, it caught my attention at the stop light!

The view might be great.... But 'you're ugly and your momma dresses you funny' comes to mind.

This pic doesn't compare to real life view, but compare the side door to windshield

Respectfully Disagree

I dunno. I kind of like the sweeping windshield. It probably feels like a cockpit.

I'm weird, though, because I like things like BSD, too.

Ive see nthese out and about.. I didnt think they looked that ugly but to me look like they are cheaply built when I did a walk around of one parked at a rest area i stopped at a couple weeks ago..

I can say that it don't matter how big your AC is, driving that thing into the sun on a hot day, you will be hot.

alot of them are incorporating Low-E / heat shield glass into the windshields now to help with that very issue..

That heavy Duty Truck Motorhome is all the rage in Ocala, FL (Horse Capitol of the world). On the highway going through you can see a ton without even trying.

They're on a Ford E-450 chassis. I looked at one last week. woof.

They could have did better with the design. And they want $100k for it
