Ford has long been a staple of recreational vehicle manufacturers, providing their E-series cutaway chassis vehicles for a wide range of RVs, according to a report by Examiner.com. Entering 2016, many of those vehicles will also be built on Ford Transit cutaway chassis frames starting with the new Winnebago Fuse.
The Winnebago Fuse, a Class C motorhome, is built on the new Ford Transit cutaway chassis. Class C motorhomes include vehicle frame, suspension, powertrain and cab, with the living area accessible behind the driver’s compartment.
According to Ford, the all-new Transit cutaway offers customers additional options for lighter-weight chassis in Class C motorhomes – a segment where Ford is already a popular choice with the Ford E-series cutaway the top-selling chassis in this market.
The new Transit family of cutaway chassis frames offers more flexibility to manufacturers to build RV vehicles that meet a wider range of adventure interests for today’s families, says Ford.
“Many of these customers are interested in outdoor adventures like kayaking, mountain biking, snowboarding and such — more national park than RV park,” explains Yaro Hetman, Ford brand manager for Transit, Transit Connect and E-series. “Sales of smaller Class C motorhomes have been on the rise for the last few years as younger, more active buyers enter the market.”
In addition to Winnebago, other manufacturers building motorhomes on the new Transit platform include Thor Motor Coach and Coachmen RV, a division of Forest River Inc.

There is no shortage of gear available to the RV enthusiast. You could go broke stocking up on all of the gadgets that some consider absolutely necessary for an enjoyable RV trip.
But over the years, we've found it's the little things that make a big difference in our travels. Some items we use over and over again, whether on fall weekend trips or month-long summer adventures.
Here are five inexpensive products that you will always find in our RV. They don't cost a lot of money, but offer lots of bang for the buck.
Premium Tire Pressure Gauge, ~$30
Talk to any RVer long enough and you will probably hear a tire blowout story. Test your tire pressure on every single traveling day to prevent this from happening to you. We learned this lesson the hard way, and now we have tire safety religion. A Premium Tire Pressure Gauge works well for us, and we actually travel with an air compressor as well, so we don't have to worry about finding a gas station pump.
Nightstick Dual Light with Dual Magnet Flashlight, $32
We use a flashlight so often at the campground that it was worth it to spend a bit extra for a quality one. We love this Nightstick, which has two lights--one that shines forward and one that casts light down toward the ground. Two built-in magnets allow it to hang nicely on the RV fridge so it's always easy to find.
Collapsible Containers – varying prices, ~$10
Anything that folds down flat when not in use is a bonus for RV travel. Bins are so versatile and can be used inside or outside the camper for laundry, sports equipment or garbage. We particularly love how they make unpacking a breeze at the end of a trip.
Packing Cubes, 3 Piece Set, $25
Closets and cabinets can get messy fast in an RV, and packing cubes are one of the best ways to keep clothing organized on a trip. Every family member has a different color, and our kids store theirs at the end of the bunks. You will be amazed at how much can fit into a single cube!
French Press Coffee Maker, $32
We love our coffee, and we take camp coffee pretty seriously. After experimenting with many different products, the French Press has earned a permanent place in our RV. Since no electricity is required, you can easily use it even when boondocking or dry camping. We use the 34-ounce model because, with three young kids, there is never enough coffee in the morning.

If you’re looking to vacation in prime vacation destinations with world class customer service and outstanding amenity packages, then Sun RV Resorts is your one-stop-shop! With an impressive collection of over 45 luxury RV resorts and campgrounds in 16 states across the United States, Sun’s portfolio caters to all-ages and families, including active 55+ guests.
As an RVer, there is important information to convey about your rig to an RV resort or campground when reserving a site for your getaway. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
RV sites will vary in size, so it’s important to make sure you’re booking one that will fit the length of your rig as well as accommodate any room for slide-outs. Some RV sites are also large enough to accommodate a tow behind vehicle, so you’ll want to keep this in mind if RV resorts and campgrounds are stating that they offer sites longer than 45 feet, which is the length limitation on the longest domestic recreational vehicles available to purchase.
Another option to keep in mind during your travels is whether RV sites are pull-through or back-in. A pull-through RV site is just as it states, one that you can drive into and exit on the other side. A back-in site is a little more complicated because if you’re unable to back-in your rig it will be more difficult to hook up the sewer and water hoses as well as the electricity lines since the utilities are meant to be set up on the driver’s side of the RV.
Make Sure You’ve Got the Hookup
· Electricity: Most campgrounds and RV resorts offer 30-amp service for pop-up campers and travel trailers or 50-amp for larger RV’s. It’s possible to step the power source up or down with designated electrical cords and adapters, allowing 30-amp units to use a 50-amp power source and vice versa. It is always best, however, if you can book a site with the proper power source for your particular RV.
· Water: Water hookups allow RVers to connect their rigs directly to a campground or RV resorts fresh water supply. Only the most rustic/remote campgrounds do not offer this service.
· Sewer: A full hookup connection at an RV park or campground will include a sewer connection on your RV site, which allows you the convenience of dumping your tanks as needed without leaving your campsite.
· Cable and WiFi: Connections to cable television and WiFi are hit and miss when it comes to most parks, but at Sun RV Resorts, we offer cable service and our free Simply Sun WiFi service at almost all of our locations.
Room for Slide-outs
Although all of the RV resorts and campgrounds in the Sun RV Resorts portfolio, and others across the county, offers sites with plenty of room for multiple slide-outs, there are a few things you may want to keep in mind before setting up your rig. Inquire about the specific campsite that you’ve been assigned to ensure there is enough room on either side of the site to fully extend your slides or awnings. Obstacles, such as trees or utility hookup posts, can wreak havoc on your rig and not allow your slide-outs to fully extend out.
Rent Before You Buy
Purchasing an RV is a major decision, so it isn’t uncommon to “try before you buy” by renting first. Even a short-term rental period can be very informative to your commitment to embrace the RV lifestyle. Sun RV Resorts offers select locations with fully prepped RV rentals right on-site, so you can experience an RV without the added fuel expense of driving it yourself or having to set everything up. This is ideal for first-timers looking to get their feet wet in the RVing world.
The helpful, friendly and knowledgeable team members at Sun are always willing to lend a helping hand in locating your site and assisting with setting up your rig. From directing you as you back-in and leveling your rig to assisting you with your various hookups, we believe in exemplary customer service and going the extra mile for all of our guests!
