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.
