We are looking at the Itasca 38R floorplan we have a question about the J Lounge. The wife said it is very stiff like sitting on a board. We are wondering if this is normal or maybe the J Lounge is made wrong. It seems that a couch should be soft or at least comfortable. Also I would like to have some input on the W24 frame and the performance of this coach.Tks

Our Bus has a J lounge with a silde out drawer underneath. It's made my Flexsteel and is in UltraLeather. It's fairly comfortable but you don't sink in as much as you do on the RestEasy power couch that our Suncruiser had. I believe that Winnebago no longer uses Flexsteel so if the J lounge is a different brand that may be the difference.

We've been in our new Itasca 38R for 3 weeks now and LOVE IT! Initially we thought the J-lounge was what we wanted because of the storage drawer below. I liked the way it felt sitting on it but when extending it out to make a bed - the backrest portion of the sofa did not go down as far as the seat cushion leaving a strange high spot on the bed. Couldn't imagine sleeping on such a design so opted for the Resteasy sofa. No storage under that but the extendable footrest are really neat.
Haven't had it out on the road too much yet but the ride wad very nice for the distance we travelled. The WCC W24 chassis is really beefy with lots of features our old Ford F53 didn't have.

I can't wait to see a Stabil-Air equipped W-24. Now that's going to be something to write about.

jardr, we've had our Workhorse W-24 since last September, Workhorse has improved the W-24 to the extent that I ( my opinion ) don't think you can compare the W-24 to the W-22 other than the fact that they are the two best Class "A" chassis out there. Ed
