Custom Floorplan?

Which, if any, of the brands allow you to customize their floorplan? Or which ones will build your custom floorplan? Or am I dreaming? LOL! (Class A MH)

The big custom coach manufacturers, like Foretravel, Newell, and the various Prevost conversion companies, will do a totally custom floorplan for you. Figure $1.5M and up for that, from scratch.

Newmar will do a fair amount of customization, but probably won't change the basic layout (kitchen and bath locations, slide size). I think they'll do more than the other manufacturers in their class (Tiffin, Monaco, Entegra, etc).

Knew about a couple of those, but waaaaay beyond my budget - LOL! Newmar sounds more like it, and I have actually seen some gorgeous used ones - Don't need major changes, no structural stuff, might be better to look at having some independent custom work done on a used one.

Thx Joe.

Custom cabinetry is one thing and easy enough, either at the factory or aftermarket. But moving a bathroom or an appliance around is a fairly major undertaking that most manufacturers don't want to bother with. The plumbing layout and electrical harness are pre-planned and the electrical harness is usually pre-made as well. Some flexibility is built in to accommodate the various floor-plans for the RV, but anything beyond that is too "custom" and therefore too disruptive to normal factory work flow.

Depending on what you want, it may well be better to buy something that is close and have an RV remodeling ship customize to your needs. There are a number of really excellent shops out there that specialize in RVs. We've done over $10,000 worth of interior remodeling on ours.

Gary is right. If what you want is furniture or cabinetry changes, a remodeling shop is your best bet. If you post where you are and likely want to get the work done, I'm sure you'll get some good recommendations on places to use.
