The kitchen sink is bitchen, makes me want to change out my round sink so my wife stops complaining. We dislike the small round sink in our 29.2.

The floor plan in the 29.3 is ok, I guess you just need to get used to it. Love the full side slideout. Makes for a lot of room.

We saw one at the Abbotsford RV Show. It had tv's for the bunks (just what the kids need, more tv while camping) It did not have living room or Bathroom skylights, and this was a big turnoff as it was alot darker inside.

Bunks?

Must have been the 30.2 that you are thinking of.
The 29.3 appears to be a new for 2015 model and what I am most interested in is that it is built on the 18K chassis. My 2012 29.2 is on the 16K chassis and is at or slightly over max when we have all four aboard with all of our stuff. I also like the king size bed. Our RV queen size is kind of short for my lanky frame.
I wonder how much the dry weight went up with that full side slide and all of those three TVs and the optional out door kitchen.
I'll have to make a call to the local RV places and see when they expect to get one in.

I believe the .3 signifies the outdoor kitchen while the .2 is for the bunks. I could be wrong.
But yes, the outdoor kitchen looks great especially for tailgating!!!

I ordered same 29.3 at Tampa RV Show. I ordered it without outside kitchen and TV.


I should receive mine NLT 15 April.


Does anyone know the OE house and engine battery type (Wet cell-gel etc.) series and specs?

Sorry, I have no info on battery type. I also did not order the outside Kitchen. I don't have a delivery date yet, only know that production finished last week.

Did you buy through Camping World?

Batteries

Thanks for reply.

I did buy through Camping World. We probably met on the Sat of the show.

I have a copy of the production order. It shows my coach off the production line yesterday, 20 March. Probably arrive at Dover Dealer mid next week.

I probably will upgrade all the batteries to the Optima line series. I need what battery series are in the coach to shop for Optima batteries.

Thought for sure info would be here on this thread.


I suggest a thorough test drive on your coach before giving final payment signature. Check for front suspension noises as per some of the other Thor A.C.E posts on thes Thor Class A threads.
