|A view of the front when it was parked at the Thousand Trails Resort on Lake Whitney, Texas. The sites were nice and wide but had a lot of trees close to the coach.|
|Front curb side view parked next to a bubbling brook in Rhode Island. Very peaceful with the windows open listening to the birds and the brook. The site was a little hard to get into but worth it once there.|
|Front curb side view without the trees, or any trees for that matter, at Malibu Beach, California. Very nice park with a great view out of the back window. Too windy this day to put out the awning. Wouldn't recommend a large rig here because of the steep entrance and tight inner roads.|
|Curb side view just outside Washington, DC in the fall with the leaves starting to turn. Nice big sites, but really needed the leveling jacks as you can tell by the high front end.|
|Rear view while parked between Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park. Hookups were shared between sites so we had to run them underneath the rear end. But the view out the front of a river was nice. Had to put wood under the jacks because of soft dirt on the site.|
|Rear road side view at a resort outside Grand Rapids, Michigan in the fall just as the leaves started turning. Very nice place, but the hookups were just too far into the site. Had to use an extra power cable and two water hoses to hookup.|
|Road side view near Branson, Missouri. Stayed here while the remains of Hurricane Gustav passed over us. Lots of rain and a good bit of wind, but lucky for us the wind came right toward the front end which should be able to withstand 100MPH wind anyway (like driving 65MPH into a 35MPH headwind). Electricity was out the next day due to some downed trees and we had to run the generator and use onboard water for showers because the campground water system was also out due to electricity failure.|
|Front road side view while parked near Hyde Park, NY. You gotta love those long pull thru sites.|
|The Hurricane 30Q is the only model that is still in production that uses this classic open floorplan. There are some galley differences between this diagram and the 2005 model. First, the stove has three burners instead of four. Second, the stove is flush with the refrigerator producing more counter space between the stove and the sink. You can see the differences in the picture of the galley below. The total length of the 30Q is 32' from the front bumper to the roof ladder. The total height is 11'5" from ground to top of the air conditioner. Interior height is 6'8".|
|Looking from the hallway toward the front. Captains chairs rotate to become part of the lounge area. The overhead Toshiba TV is flanked by media storage and satellite receiver hookups on the left, and front/back video switch, digital converter, and DVD/VCR player on the right.|
|This is the dash area with the privacy curtains closed. There are 2 power plugs available for GPS system and the towed car brake monitor. Back up camera allows monitoring the towed going down the road and provides all the assistance needed to back into campsites. The radio/CD player is XM satellite ready and has stereo speakers in the front and back. The HWH leveling jack controls (not visible) are on the floor to the left of the driver's seat.|
|The generator was exercised for 30 minutes every 2 weeks or so, used to provide electricity at rest stops for the microwave and air conditioner, and helped keep us cool by running the coach air conditioner while going down the road during hot weather.|
We removed the standard barrel chair (which we still have and is available along with the mounting bolts) and replaced it with an electric stove that gives us a cozy campfire look anytime and anywhere we liked no matter what kind of burn bans were in effect at the campground. It also takes the chill out of the air on the low temperature setting and, saving on propane, heats the entire RV on high as long as the outside temperature doesn't go much below freezing.|
The visited states map shows nicely when the door is open at the campsite during the spring and fall and also serves to remind us of where we've been during the winter and summer or during inclement weather. The white box just to the left of the map is a Kill-A-Watt meter that is used to monitor voltage at campgrounds that may have unstable electricity. It beeps when voltage is too high or too low.
The dinette area can seat four at mealtime and converts into a 72 inch bed at night for visitors (kids love it!). Seat belts (stored under the seat and not visible in this picture) are installed for the forward facing seat. Under seat storage for things like bottled water and other infrequently used items can be accessed via the doors at the end of both seats.|
To the right of the mirror is the thermostat that controls both the air conditioner and the furnace. Around the corner from the thermostat are the black switches for the heated gray and black holding tanks. They have been used in Yellowstone National Park and during a surprise blizzard in South Dakota. The fresh water tank and water pump are heated by a special duct from the furnace.
The galley is complete with a three burner stove with piezo ignition, oven with pilot, microwave, six cubic foot double door refrigerator/freezer, and double bowl stainless steel sink with covers for both sides. The stove hood contains both a fan and a light as well as the fresh water, holding tank, LP, and battery level gauges. The hot water heater switch can be seen on the end of the lower cabinet. While there are mini-blinds behind the sink (because they might get wet from splashing water), the rest of the side and rear windows are covered with day/night shades.|
Note the door that separates the galley and the sleeping area. Closing the bathroom door, as in the picture, creates a rather generous dressing area in the back with easy access to the bathroom, the wardrobe, and the bed for laying out attire when getting ready for the day or evening. Closing the door also provides for a little private time or a more quiet nap in the afternoon than a curtain would offer. (And it hides an unmade bed in case visitors drop by unexpectedly.)
|The jack knife sofa has some storage underneath that is not very easy to access, so we used it for storing souvenirs we collected during our travels. The sofa makes into a 68 inch bed that is very comfortable if the right foam bedding is used because there is a dip where the seat and back come together. The driver's seat back should also be leaned forward for maximum sleeping comfort.|
|Looking from the front toward the hallway and bedroom. The air conditioner cover seen on the ceiling has a set of vents that when opened can quickly cool the area. When the vents are closed, the air is distributed throughout the coach with ceiling ductwork. The inside ceiling height is about 6 feet 8 inches.|
The rear bedroom features a walk around full sized bed (54x75) with a night stand and shirt closet on either side and overhead cabinets above. The padded headboard comes in handy to prevent hitting the noggin on the wall at night and to insulate the sleepers from a chill during cold weather. There are shades over the rear window that can be opened to take in any grand view that might be present and windows on both sides that can be opened for a nice cross breeze of fresh air and to let in the sounds of nature. There is a carpeted sitting area under each window to watch the kids or to view the natural surroundings.|
The bed lifts up on gas struts to give access to a large storage area for things like bedding, a vacuum cleaner, and shoes. The 30 amp electrical panel containing 12V fuses and 110V breakers is located on the driver's or road side of the bed frame near the floor.
|There is a digital TV in the bedroom that is connected to the video switch discussed earlier in the text describing the TV and media storage space in the back to front view picture. The video switch allows someone in the back to be watching cable TV, for example, while someone in the front is watching a DVD or playing a video game. Since this TV has a digital tuner, local weather can be picked up to watch out for alerts. We also take this TV outside to watch ball games and other events by attaching a splitter to the outside cable. Both TVs have filters on them to cut down on DC interference. Just close the cabinet door when it's time to travel and you're good to go.|
The bathroom is an all in one unit which allows complete privacy when the door is closed and access to a larger area around the wardrobe and bedroom when the door is open. The shower has a glass sliding door and a skylight above for extra headroom. There is a powered ceiling vent to eliminate steam and help keep the medicine cabinet mirror from fogging up. The lavatory and toilet drain into the 26+ gallon black tank and the shower drains into the 44 gallon gray tank along with the kitchen sink. There is also a GFCI socket in the bathroom for hair dryers, electric tooth brushes, and other electrical devices such as razors or battery chargers.|
The spacious wardrobe is located across from the bathroom. There are two full width drawers on the bottom and a large clothes hanging area behind the twin mirrored doors. When combined with the shirt closets in the bedroom, there has always been enough storage space for our 3 to 5 week trips, even when going through a change of seasons when both warm weather and cold weather clothing is required.|
