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 décor choices – blue, sage green and brown – matched 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
