Review of the 2015 Forest River Charleston 430BH

Forest River Charleston 430BH
2015 Forest River Charleston 430BH

The all-new Charleston 430BH floor plan by Forest River is exactly what motor home owners think of when they envision a luxury coach. The Charleston is the slightly larger and more powerful counterpart to Forest River’s flagship Berkshire model, and with just as many creature comforts and amenities.  With multiple interior and exterior options and furnishings, Charleston owners are sure to drive off in a coach that not only suits all of their wants and needs, but has the style and class that will keep heads turning wherever the road takes them.

The Power

Not all diesel pusher’s were created equally, and that is apparent when you open the hood of the Charleston 430BH. This coach is powered by an 8.9 liter, 450HP Cummins turbo diesel engine that makes driving this 43 foot-long, 22 ton a joy regardless of the terrain you’re on. 1250 ft. lbs. of torque make the Charleston a great coach to tow a vehicle, boat, or just about anything else owners need to transport along with them. Constructed on a Freightliner XC-Series chassis, owners can expect a smooth, quality ride for years to come.

The Exterior

With everything from a single piece, panoramic windshield, to multiple full-body paint options, to 2 lb. density, block foam polystyrene insulation throughout the cabin to keep the cabin at a comfortable temperature regardless of what’s taking place outside, the Charleston is almost as nice to admire from the outside than it is to actually ride in one. While there are nearly limitless options owners can choose from when purchasing their coach, the standard features put most other motor homes to shame. The exterior of the 430BH has bus style, side-to-side underbelly storage, an external shower, a power patio awning, external speakers, a fiberglass roof, Hehr frameless dual pane, dark tint windows, a 7-pin tow power connector, a 100 gallon, dual fill fuel tank, polished aluminum wheels, and much more. The Charleston comes standard with 4 deep cycle six volt house batteries on a slide tray and a 50 amp 120 volt distribution panel with an energy management system to ensure that owners will have power wherever the road may take them.

The Interior

Forest River Charleston 430BH

The interior of the Charleston 430BH floor plan is not only aesthetically beautiful, but also incredibly practical and functional. Starting in the ergonomically designed cockpit of the coach, the driver of this coach has the best seat in the house. A telescopic “Smart Wheel” adjusts to fit any size driver comfortably, while power adjusting automotive style foot pedals making navigating the roadways as easy as it is in a much smaller vehicle. Moving from the cockpit to the cabin, and then to the rear master bedroom has a very seamless flow, which was designed to make the Charleston 430BH feel like home. All interior appointments were crafted to give the cabin a luxury and homey feel – from the full size refrigerator and residential style kitchen, to hand crafted woodworking and trim, and the custom tile flooring, passengers will experience comfort like never before while on the road. The good folks at Forest River certainly didn’t forget about creating a spacious environment when building the 430BH as there is room for 10 passengers to sleep comfortably thanks to 4 slideouts, two roomy bunk beds, leather pull out, sleeper sofas, and an incredible master suite with a king size bed and rear entertainment center.

The 2015 Forest River Charleston 430BH is truly a coach fit for a king…and his family. The luxurious interior furnishings, power, and spectacular exterior look of this coach makes it one of the most desirable diesel pusher motor homes on the market.

Review of the 2015 Haulmark Motor Coach 4502DS

You love power. You log thousands of miles on the road. You refuse to sacrifice any of the comforts of home you’re used to. Congratulations, you’re a perfect candidate for a Haulmark motor coach. In our world, we call that a compliment, so feel free to thank us whenever you have a mind to. A staple in the racing community, Haulmark’s line of motor coaches have earned a reputation for being considered the perfect blend of rugged power, torque, and drivability as well as being designed with an understated level of sophistication that is second to none in the Super C market.  Here, we’ll take a peek into what makes the Haulmark 4502DS the perfect coach for the power loving road warrior.

The Power

As we’ve alluded to, the 4502DS (and basically all Haulmark motor coaches) are absolute beasts. Coming standard with a 13 speed automatic transmission, the 4502DS is powered by a 485HP Cummins diesel engine that also boasts 1,850 lb. of torque and a 40k tow hitch (yes, 40k…not a typo), making this the perfect coach to pull just about anything you can imagine. Built on a Volvo TA chassis, this unit will handle much better than one would expect from a 45’ vehicle that has a GVW of over 55,000 pounds. Bottom line, you can take this coach pretty much anywhere regardless of terrain while pulling the majority of your worldly possessions with you.

The Exterior

The Haulmark 4502DS is the epitome of a “mobile mansion” measuring in at 45’ in length and 13’5” high. Owners have their choice of purchasing this coach in one of 5 different exterior graphic options (we like the classic white look, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with opting for the Sapphire Frost, either…). Frameless, thermal pane tinted windows give a residential and sleek look while helping to keep this coach efficient in terms of maintaining a comfortable living temperature inside the cabin. Outdoor entertainment is a feature that certainly has not gone overlooked by the good folks at Haulmark as this coach is designed with an outdoor refrigerator, gas grill, and optional 32” LED TV and Sirius satellite radio with outdoor speakers. Subtle features like automatic lights in the underbelly storage compartments are a nice convenience for owners. 2×3 tubular steel floor frame and a welded tubular aluminum cage make the 4502DS as sturdy and durable as it is pleasant to look at. Haulmark has truly constructed a motor coach that is built to handle all conditions and last for decades.

The Interior

The 4502DS floor plan is exactly what luxury motor coach shoppers have been looking for. Two large slideouts, plush leather furniture, handcrafted solid oak cabinetry (including crown molding), and beautiful porcelain tile throughout the cabin give this coach the space (over 250 square feet of living space) and feel of home.

Even the satin nickel hardware on the cabinetry was carefully thought of to make Haulmark owners feel like they are living luxuriously while on the road, which they most certainly are. A residential style kitchen with a 3 burner gas range, stainless steel GE convection microwave oven, solid surface countertops, and brushed nickel faucets with sprayer in the double bowl kitchen sink make prepping and cooking full meals (and cleaning up after them) far less of a chore than in smaller coaches with less counter space. Sleeping space is definitely not an issue in this coach. The master bedroom comes standard with a queen, coil spring bed (with option to upgrade to a king size) with a luxury fitted bedspread and decorative accent pillows. Above the cab there is a 60” extended bunk for additional passengers.

In summation, the Haulmark 4052DS is the complete package for those who require power but also refuse to sacrifice luxury while being on the road.
