LOVE our XLR!

2 weeks ago we picked up our brand new 2014 XLR Thunderbolt 300X12HP. We were a bit unsure about making that major of a purchase but we couldn't be happier now. The garage is used to haul our golf cart and tools when we go drag racing (my wife races. I build it, she breaks it). The on board generator and 100gal of fresh water works out perfect for camping out in the pits at the track. The more time we spend in it the more we like it.

A party deck would have been nice but the more we use the garage the more I'm glad we don't have it.

We are looking forward to the next race just so we can use it again. Too bad the garage isn't big enough for our race truck to fit into haha

1/4, Most of the tracks we go to are 1/4, only a few are 1/8th. The longer we do this the more I like the 1/8 mile runs, easier on parts!

Very cool.

We love our XLR too. Picked it up in January and (like you said) the more time we spend in it the more we like it.

So you just picked it up 2 weeks ago...did you order it or buy off the lot? Still waiting for mine to appear at the dealer...

Glad you like it, we can't wait until ours shows up and we get to GO!

Bought it off the lot. We made an offer 38% under MSRP and they accepted it. We originally went to go look at a cougar 5th wheel my wife really liked.

Our 2013 42' XLR 380AMP was purchased from a whosaler, and like yourself we love it. I load up the 2012 FLHTK and we stay on the road. Currently in Denver CO.Click image for larger version
