I am getting very close to buying a new 30' Showhauler. I have not seen one and would like to see and touch one before I travel east. Does anybody know of a late model Showhauler Motorhome in or near CA I can go look at?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Phil,

You could call Showhauler and ask them if they have a customer in your area that you could visit with. Failing that, you could take a trip to Pomona Fairgrounds for the NHRA Winternationals in a few weeks and there maybe a few in the pits you could inspect, no guarantees of Showhaulers but there could also be other brands to view too.

Peter.

Mine will be at California Speedway on March 13-15.

It's slightly different from the new ones but you'll get the feel of how nice Showhauler builds them.

Sean, are you going to be up north at all while that far west? I live just off of I90 in Washington State.

I read on one of these posts that the Showhauler has verticle seams on the exterior. I can't really make them out on any pictures I have seen. Do the seams detract from the appearance?

Thanks again guys....

Phil -

I think you answered your own question when you say you cannot make them out in a picture, but I also had the same concern initially until I saw one in person.

You wont even notice it.

Phil, the seam is a overlap of the aluminum. It looks by far better than rivets or lumpy FRP. You said yourself you can't see it!

Sorry but no. Depending on the weather I'll either be running across I-40 or I-10 out and back.

Sean,

If you are coming through Kingman give me a call or email and maybe we can meetfor a coffee. If you want to park up, I am about 8 miles off the I-40 with plenty of room for rigs and trailers, or I can drive and meet you there. I would love to see your rig and grab ideas for mine.

Peter.

Sounds great! I'll be in touch as it gets closer and get a number. I'm not going to have any definite stops planned, I usually just run til I need to sleep and then pull over, get up and do it again the next day. Odds are good though that I'll hit the Flying J in Kingman to fuel up and avoid doing so in Kalifornia.

If nothing else the same rig will be in Vegas later this summer either with me or with the guys running our West Coast stuff, they're interested in buying it (which would then put me into a quick build on another chassis mid race season...yippee )
