I love those window awnings, but I can't tell what kind they are. I don't recognize the cover.

That's the hard part of a totally custom rig - its typically not customized to anyone else's liking so hard to find the right buyer willing to pay the price.

Let us know what you think John!

Yep....I was just looking at a couple of New Horizons on the web. One had the entrance door on the drivers side and the other had air brakes. The air brakes I like but my truck wouldn't match

Dave, that's another perfect reason for an HDT; air brakes for the the new coach!

I wonder if it was built for Australia Dave. They require air brakes, and their entry is on the street side for us.

Some fella on here or the old site was discussing having a Redwood customized for Australia and mentioned those two requirements.

If you pull with a HD or MD truck, the air brakes would come into play. I like the idea of air brakes simply because the brakes are locked up when the trailer is parked (it takes air to release the brakes). This would help prevent any rocking fore and aft, they're also easily adjusted with a 7/16 socket in about 10 minutes.

The down side of air brakes is that if a trailer sits for a long period of time they can stick and require a little love tap from a #10 hammer to release them. When all is said and done though, I'd still rather have air brakes.

I noticed it has a residential gas stove in it but has a RV type refrigerator, guess I cannot see boon docking in that unit.

Also does not have the residential returns on the bedroom A/C unit, could be quite noisy !!!

That's sure a lot of trailer even for a Ford F450

I'm starting to look at the custom built RVs, either New Horizon or Continental Coach. That one is just too long and not the way I would want it. Besides, if I buy a custom unit.....I want it to my specs.

I would agree, one of the problems with custom built units is it is built for the specific customer wants and needs, not everybody has the same wants and needs

Glad we never had a chance to go see it then - the light wood is too much for me !

Thought it might be up there given the were driving brand new corvettes and maseratis

I like the bubble front fireplace. Beautiful coach. I bet it uses all three of those air conditioners with that black finish.

We have the black & silver, the front cap gets pretty warm but nothing we can't manage. With both A/C's going and using the shades on the sunny sides we can maintain mid 70's inside with no problems.
