Rig of the Month: Flying A Motorsports Showhauler Motorhome

As the official trailer/motorcoach dealer of Dragzine, Flying A Motorsports’ extensive lineup of new and used motorhomes, toterhomes, race car trailers, stacker trailers, car haulers, and cargo trailers are highlighted here in our monthly Rig of the Month feature.

This month’s featured motorhome is the most majestic hauler the Flying A Motorsports team has highlighted here to date. This 2015 Showhauler motorhome is constructed on an International Lonestar chassis. This rig measures in at 45-feet long with every amenity you could want.

“This rig is now on our lot in Cuba, Missouri,” says Alan Cape, President of Flying A Motorsports. “It is considered used, but only has 8,000-original miles on the odometer. It is from the estate of a family who bought it from us a few years back. The motorhome traveled to its owners from the factory and was used for one trip.” Alan continued to tell us that its trip back to Cuba, Missouri and a trip for their display at a recent PDRA event are the only highway life this rig has seen.

Given that these International trucks are equipped with an impressive 600-horsepower Cummins with an 18-speed automatic transmission, the rig is not considered “broken in” by industry standard until the drivetrain reaches the 100,000-mile mark.

Measuring in at 45-feet long, the living quarters feature two-powered slide-out walls and enough sleeping layout for four or more people. There is a rear bedroom with a king sized bed, a bunk bed and currently, the dinette area folds out for sleeping. Connected to the master bedroom, a walk-through bathroom has a curved shower, sink, and toilet with a skylight over the room.

Flying A's Alan Cape explains that a king size bed is a rare option in motorhomes. This rig also features a large amount of storage cabinets.

“There is currently an open area in the interior as ordered by the original owners where their favorite recliner chairs were once in place,” Alan Cape adds. “The previous owner removed them, so replacement chairs or a small couch can be installed there by our shop, or by the new owners. A fold-out couch could even offer more sleeping quarters.”

The kitchen area offers an Atwood three-burner LP cooktop and oven, a Moen stainless steel sink, plus a convection microwave and RV refrigerator, both by Whirlpool. Make sure to view the interior images to see the large about of closet/storage space through the Showhauler.

A Rand McNally built-in navigation system and 18-speed automatic transmission make driving duties easy. There's a sleeping bunk above the driver's area and an open area in the living room for two custom armchairs or a couch.

To keep it cool when warm outside, there are two powered roof vents with remotes plus two ducted air conditioner units. Providing exterior shade, there is a long Carefree of Colorado brand awning that spans approximately 20-foot of the passenger side of the hauler.

The impressive black paint on the Showhauler Inc. Conversion exterior is accented by bright stainless lining from front to rear with a massive Magnum grill guard protecting the front end of the truck. There is a Big Foot brand hydraulic leveling system and an Onan 12,500-kilowatt quiet diesel generator onboard, too.

The bathroom is a walk-through layout connected to the master bedroom and features natural lighting from a skylight.

Entertainment does not fall short on this motorhome; there is a Samsung flat screen television in the living area, and the master bedroom with an AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth Stereo in the cab and a Blu-Ray video/stereo/direct TV satellite system matched to the rear TV.

If you’re looking to match this motorhome with a new trailer, Flying A motorsports offers an equally impressive array of trailers on their grounds. Cape tells us, “We have a black stacker that will hook right up to the Showhauler’s 40,000-pound hitch and appear as a matched pair.”

Flying A Motorsports has a huge selection of trailers, as well, including this stacker unit that matches the Showhauler.

Not only can this rig handle the duties at the racetrack for the hardcore racer, but think of the possibilities to use this Showhauler for fun outside of the dragstrip, too.
