Class C Motorhome Drives and Sleeps 6

By Kama Lee Jackson, Aug. 18, 2017, Photography by Dynamax Corp.
The 2018 Dynamax Isata 4 motorhome features two slides for lots of living space, all the amenities of home, and has seatbelts and sleeping space for six, making it a great option for a larger group.

There are two floorplans to choose from, and the Isata 4 31DS is the larger of the two. It has a gross vehicle weight rating of 14,500 lbs and a gross combined weight rating of 22,000 lbs. It measures 32’10” long, 11’6” high, and 101” wide. The fresh water tank has a capacity of 51 gallons, the gray and black water tanks can each hold 42 gallons. It has a 55-gallon fuel tank capacity.

The Isata 4 31DS is built on a Ford E450 chassis and runs on a 6.8-liter gas engine, and has a six-speed automatic transmission with tow haul mode. The trailer hitch is rated to 7,500 tow lbs.

Outdoor entertainment is a part of Isata 4 31DS living: it comes standard with an exterior television, exterior speakers, and a dual-pitch, armless patio awning with LED lighting and motion-activated retraction.

You have your choice of five different full-body paint packages with diamond shield paint protection and gel coat over the fiberglass walls. You also have several choices for the interior décor: pick from three different upholstery combinations, and two different cabinetry and countertop combinations.

The motorcoach’s cockpit has leatherette seats and a touch-screen in-dash infotainment system. Back-up and side-view cameras, as well as lighted and heated mirrors, make maneuvering as stress-free as possible.

The front cab-over bunk area has a 50” x 80” mattress. In the slide-out behind the driver’s seat, a three-seater sofa bed has seatbelts for three and directly faces a 32” LED television, which is mounted in the kitchen. Within the same slideout, a dream dinette booth is right beside the sofa and has one more seatbelt, for a total of six. You can opt for a U-shaped dinette if you prefer, which comes with three seatbelts.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with a seven-cubic-foot refrigerator, convection microwave oven, and a three-burner gas range. A double-bowl stainless steel sink and faucet with pull-out sprayer makes doing dishes a little bit easier. You can get more solid surface countertop workspace with an extension. Under-cabinet lighting not only brightens up the prep area but can also serve as mood lighting when not prepping food.

A door closes off the pass-through bathroom and the bedroom area from the rest of the motorcoach. To the left of the door is the walk-in shower with a skylight. On the right is a foot-flush toilet and hand sprayer, along  with a vanity with stainless steel sink.

Another door separates the bathroom from the bedroom at the back of the motorcoach. The walk-around queen bed with memory foam mattress is in a slideout and windows on each side allow for a cross-breeze. Each side also has its own nightstand.  There are also USB ports and LED reading lights. If you’re in the mood for a movie instead of a book, there’s also a 32” LED television mounted in the cabinet unit across from the foot of the bed, right beside the cedar-lined wardrobe.

The Dynamax Isata 4 31DS starts at about $100,000. For more information, visit http://www.dynamaxcorp.com/.
