Built-to-order, factory-direct motorhomes have been the business model of Lazy Daze Inc. for 56 years. The Class C manufacturer has staked its reputation in quality workmanship and claims selling directly from the factory allows it to offer high-quality, well-equipped coaches at competitive prices.
With a base price of $80,250, Lazy Daze’s 24-Foot Twin King Bed finds itself at the higher end of the Class C market. But a review of the construction, floorplan and standard features shows you get what you pay for with this 2012 model.
Like all Lazy Daze’s motorhomes, the 24-Foot Twin King is built on a Ford E-450 Super Duty chassis and, like all its 24-foot models, the Twin King is equipped with a 5.4-L V-8 engine (a 6.8-L V-10 is optional). All Lazy Daze coaches are manufactured with sectional aircraft aluminum side panels, so each one can be replaced separately in case of a major accident or damage. The onepiece painted aluminum roof is sun and tear resistant, and the reinforced steel frame comes with a lifetime warranty to the original owner. Generously sized thermal pane windows help bring the outdoors in while on the road.
Lazy Daze is one of a few motorhome manufacturers to not offer a slideout, but with this versatile floorplan that’s no problem. The large rear dinette area — surrounded by three of those aforementioned large windows — doubles as the bedroom, with sofa twin beds that can be combined to create an oversized king bed. Relax in front of the 24-inch LED fl at-screen TV, which is mounted on a swivel arm, and maintain a comfortable interior temperature using the 15,000-Btu air conditioner with heat pump.
Granite finish countertops and a double sink give the Twin King’s kitchen a residential feel, while the microwave, three-burner range and oven — all standard — provide plenty of options for meal preparation. A 6-cubic-foot Dometic refrigerator completes the kitchen, which is illuminated by LED light fixtures.
The Twin King provides ample overhead storage, along with a double wardrobe and galley vanity. The interior is one of real wood cabinetry in either maple or cherry finishes. A cabover queen mattress folds out of the way for easy access to the high back front seats (Ultraleather is optional). Located behind the captain’s chair, the bathroom offers a shower with double dome skylight, porcelain toilet, sink with mirror and a medicine cabinet. One of three Fan-Tastic roof vents can be found in the bathroom, with the others located in the galley and cab. To clean up before coming inside, consider the optional outside shower with insulated door.
A 4,000-kW Onan gas generator is standard on every Lazy Daze model, as is a roof-mounted, crank-up Winegard TV antenna with booster and outside cable hookup. For maneuvering assistance, a backup camera with 5.6-inch LCD cab-mounted monitor is optional.
