Xcursion 26′

XPLORER MOTOR HOME DIVISION PRIDES ITSELF in producing niche-market motorhomes, and the
company’s new Xcursion 26-foot Class C, built on the Ford Super Duty F-450 cab/chassis, is
the latest in that vein – aimed at the seasoned motorhome buyer who wants a full-size
motorhome with four-wheel drive, diesel power and a slideout. Diesel power is available in
other Class C units, but four-wheel drive usually is not, and Xplorer has designed the new
Xcursion to handle all the abuse backcountry roads can dish out. The motorhome also is
available with a V-10 gas engine and two-wheel drive if desired. The Xcursion’s body is
built on aluminum floor joists and a 1/2-inch-thick plywood floor with aluminum on the
underside. The walls are made of tubular and angle aluminum and are molded into the
one-piece gelcoated fiberglass body. The cabover section is made of two-piece fiberglass,
reinforced with an aluminum deck. Because some of the Xcursion’s buyers will undoubtedly
use the motorhome during wintertime, the walls and ceiling use R-18-rated urethane-foam
insulation. A 25,000-BTU furnace and a 13,500-BTU ducted air-conditioning system control
interior temperature. The Xcursion is produced in two basic floorplans with a variety of
available options. The coach pictured here features a living-room slideout, which houses a
74-inch sofa bed. The four-person curbside dinette converts into a double bed, and there’s
a queen-size bed over the cab. An overhead entertainment center up front is available with
or without a slide-out twin-bed “drawer” that tucks under the entertainment system. Xplorer
offers three interior d̩cor choices Рblue, sage green and brown Рmatched with standard
white laminated cabinets or optional oak cabinets. The kitchen features a
microwave/convection oven, a three-burner stove, an 8-cubic-foot three-way refrigerator and
a pull-out pantry. Out back, there’s a rear-corner bath with a separate shower. Power for
dry camping comes from a standard 4-kW gas AC generator for V-10 applications, while
diesel-equipped Xcursions have either a standard 3.6-kW LP-gas-powered AC generator or an
optional 3.5-kW diesel counterpart. The Xplorer holds 36 gallons each of fuel and fresh
water, 19.5 gallons each of gray and black water (in heated holding tanks), 16.5 gallons of
LP-gas and 6 gallons of hot water. Xcursions are built one at a time, per the customer’s
order, and retail for $101,000, a price that varies depending on the level of optional
equipment. Article by: Chris Hemer Xplorer Motor Home Division, Frank Industries Inc., 3950
