In 2014, we custom ordered and bought a new 26' RedHawk, then spent a little more and had the suspension totally upgraded. This was the unit we wanted.... large towing/hauling capacity, good floor plan, and would fit in our RV port without a problem. Love it. This is not our first or largest RV but we are enjoying it. We have a 6' 3" teenager that is in high school and needed his own bed area that could handle his tall size. The old class "A" RV with it's couch just didn't do it anymore when he started getting tall. We tried a beautiful, fully loaded, custom ordered, Jayco popup, which ended up being too much work for me to handle. It was used exactly 3 times and then we sold it. After 3 heart surgeries, I'm not in the shape that I use to be in. That, and the other worn out parts I have make camping harder than it should be. We still love it and look forward to each trip we take. For now, the class C RedHawk meets our needs. Enjoy :-)

We just purchased a 2018 redhawk 29xk May 18. We have been out on three short trips and have spent 10 nights camping so far with only a couple small adjustment issues that i have taken care of so far. Love the motorhome camping style after owning toy hauler pull along trailers for last 15+ years and with disablilities makes life sooooooo much easier to just roll out and go camping! Plus we looked for ability to pull a trailer and the larger towing capacity was a big plus. Anxious for long trips soon.

We purchased a 2019 Melbourne 24L in May. Other then driving it home we havenít used it yet. Iím in the process of changing out the Flooded lead acid battery with a Lithium ion battery and installing a inverter.
We hope to be out on the road in a month.

Jeff, Hopefully by the time I wear these two AGMs out Lithium will have come down in price a bit. All my future mods are geared in that direction. Lets us know how I works out.

Will do. Iím still waiting on parts to start. The lithium ion battery is very expensive but I thought that itís worth the money. Iím estimating the cost will be around $1800.00. Thatís with only one battery. Weíre going to do a long trip next year and I donít want to be totally dependent on shore or generator power.

Great. We just got a 2018 redhawk 31xl. Haven't been out yet. I too have disabilities and traded out north point 5th wheel for the class c.
