2011 MVP Vortex 295CK Review
To really get the most out of your ATV, dirt bike and Jet Ski, you need to get away from the urban sprawl and use them where they were meant to be used – the great outdoors. You can bring all your toys, and have an amazing place to hang out when you’re not on them, with the 2011 MVP Vortex Toy Hauler.
A great complement to an active outdoor lifestyle, the Vortex toy hauler is ideal for an extreme adventure or a weekend of relaxation. Packed with loads of features, the Vortex comes in five floorplans. We’ll be looking at the 295CK, the largest model of the series. It measures in with an overall length of 31′ 4″, an overall width of 96″, an overall height of 12′ 9″ and a hitch weight of 1,920 lbs.
Built to withstand the adventurous lifestyle you lead, the Vortex is tough and durable, thanks to its aluminum wall laminated construction, radius automold and diamond plate exterior on the front and sides. To keep the elements out, it features a one-piece rubber roof, and it turns heads wherever it goes with its white powder-coated bumper and door frame, chrome wheels and dark tinted glass windows.
Convenience and enjoyment are key factors with the Vortex – that’s why it comes with an easy locking deluxe ramp door, complete with a 7’ radius door with EZ Lift Springs, and 40-gallon fuel pump station. Making sure you’re always kept cool, it comes with a Dometic 13.5 BTU air conditioner. When you’re lounging outside under the awning, you can listen to some tunes with the Jensen marine grade exterior speakers or watch some TV (the awning comes with cable TV hook-ups).
Keeping you covered in the way of utilities, the Vortex comes with a host of power and water features. Thanks to its ONAN 4.0k built-in generator, you can keep the lights on and the TV running. In the way of water amenities, it comes equipped with a 100 gallon fresh water tank, a 40-gallon grey tank, a 40-gallon black tank, a six-gallon gas water heater with DSI, a water heater by-pass and a black tank flush.
Other exterior features include a wash down kit with pressure washer, dual five-gallon LP tanks, a sewer hose compartment, a TV antenna, back-up lights, high intensity door side light with dimmer switch, high intensity rear lights, a 12-volt hitch light and a spare tire and carrier.
You can only play outside for so long, so when it’s time to come in after a long, hard day and the toys are packed away, you can be sure that comfort is waiting for your arrival. Available in three decor choices – Desert Sand, Copper and Flame – you can make the Vortex your own. A perfect accent to your decor, exclusive craftsman Cherry cabinetry can be found throughout, giving you stylish storage space for all your essentials. Other interior design features include a fully covered floor with Armstrong linoleum, mini-blinds and curved walls.
The living area is where you’ll be spending a lot of your indoor time, as its ideal for lounging and relaxing. Take a seat on the steel framed fold-up sofa or arm chair while watching the game on the 26″ Jensen LCD TV. Snacks have their place on the table that’s moveable, so you can move the party outdoors when the occasion calls for it.
The living area opens to the galley, equipped with everything you need to make your meals on the road. You’ll be able to whip up tasty grub with the help of a three-burner cook top, a convection oven and a six cu. ft. Dometic refrigerator. Prep and clean up are simple with laminate countertops with edging, a stainless steel double bowl sink and a high rise faucet.
Time to get your beauty rest, so log in some quality snooze time in the master bedroom that comes with a residential size 60”x80” queen-size bed. And there’s no excuse to leave your clothes on the floor – the bedroom comes complete with a wardrobe and two bedside tables. If you have guests staying over, there’s a dual electric power bed found on the opposite end of the trailer.
Last, but not least, is the fully equipped bathroom. Get the dirt off in the tub that’s outfitted with a shower head (and a skylight for plenty of light). The bathroom also comes with a porcelain foot pedal flush toilet, vanity sink and linen closet.
If you want to upgrade, the Vortex comes with a few extras. Options include aluminum wheels, toy lock, LCD TV in the bedroom, rear pull down screen, carpet kit, water filter system, double R-8 insulation, fully enclosed underbelly and dual pane windows.
