The Phoenix TRX motorhome is designed to have a small footprint that makes it easy to drive around town as well as comfortable to drive on the highways. Built on an AWD Ford Transit Chassis, this Class B+ motorhome is loaded with extras from Ford. In fact, Phoenix orders its chassis with every available option.
In the video below, we get a quick tour from the team from Phoenix’s D&H RV & Marine of this high-end motorhome. They claim the Phoenix TRX 1563 motorhome will get about 11 mpg on average.
While the video does not go into great detail, it will provide a quick overview of some of the nicer features of this motorhome. You can get more details and check out the floor plan here.
I was impressed with how well-built the coach appeared. Inside, you’ll find solid wood cabinetry, solid surface countertops, and high-quality leather furniture.
The bathroom features a macerator toilet that makes dumping easier and more manageable. (To be honest, I have never found this job a big deal even without a macerator toilet, but OK, supposedly this makes it easier.)

There’s not a ton of outdoor storage, although there is more than many other brands of similar motorhomes.
The seating looks a little close, too, which may or may not be a bad thing depending on whom you are sitting with.
