First impression of the Dynamax Grand Sport GS400CL? This luxury
motorhome is one big, powerful moving house — with an attached garage.
Yes, this coach is capable of hauling four quads or a squadron of
motorcycles. That said, how does this elegant rolling estate equate to
real-world RVing for those who want to take their toys with them?
For one thing, if the thought of pushing your motorcycles or quads up a
ramp seems like more work than fun, this SURV has a hydraulic lift on
the tail that allows you to roll onto the ramp and then elevate the
cycle or quad up to garage level via a hard-wired remote-control unit.
Once the recreational toy is on the same level as the flat garage floor,
you simply roll it inside — a nice feature when compared to riding or
rolling a motorcycle up a 30-degree ramp at speed.
Dynamax Corporation is known for its luxurious motorhomes
constructed on heavy-duty, diesel-puller, conventional-cab chassis. It
now offers a toy-hauler version of its Grand Sport Touring Coach series
in 45-, 41- and 39-foot models with 11- to 12-foot-long garages. The
cargo area, which is separated from the living area by a formidable
bulkhead, is not only roomy enough to carry your motorized toys, but
also can be accessorized as a mobile workshop — and any odors
associated with gasoline and other petroleum-based products are isolated
from the living area.
These new toy-haulers are loaded with luxurious features, yet
are purpose-driven vehicles designed to get you out where the fun is.
However, one look at the cab and you can quickly surmise that the
designers and engineers at Dynamax wanted to think outside of the
typical “toy-hauler box” — and this is no boxy right-angled rig, but a
potent, aerodynamic statement that affirms the Dynamax-way of doing
things: distinctively upscale with power and safety to spare.
