Front kitchen?

Well, the latest is we've become serious in looking for a DP to replace the ole Pace Arrow, and we've upped the budget to a more reasonable 130-180k number. DW wantsa something newer, I am to be DENIED any opportunity to PROJECT> :(

Latest idea is a front kitchen would be cool.
She went through all the manufacturers websites, and we now have a full list of every front kitchen floorplan made for 2011. but not 10, or 09, or 08, or you get the picture.

So who can name off some nice 40' ish front kitchen multiple slide DP's?

Was there ever a Fleetwood Revolution or le front kitchen?

Jim,

The Fleetwood Brochures/Flyers Library thread in the Fleetwood Products Owners Forum will link you to FW's website with access to about a decade back of DP layouts for models they still carry. You can give them a look-see for FK floorplans.

Thanks for the tip on the FW brochures, learned a lot there, biggest was that FW went to the raised rail chassis and full passthroughs in 08 on most, 09 on Providence.

Oddly, cause I know they are cheapest of the cheap, but we really like the Sportscoach... if it wasn't for the 46 gallon gray tank...

And not 100% on the front kitchen after spending 4 hours side by side on our laptops looking at hundreds of coaches last night....

Today we're making the rounds of the local dealers. I feel the need for more than a laptop screen in this search.

Thanks for the tips guys. We went out looking today. Checked out a 2008 Monaco Knight 40 SKQ front kitchen. Very nice, but the bozo's left it outside in yesterdays ice storm with the slides out, toppes were frozen and the slides wouldn't pull in.
They also had an 08 Tuscany 4076 that was VERY nice... 'cept it was buried in the back of the lot, they hadn't even plowed back there, and the batteries were stone dead.

So from there we went to camping world, and checked out a nice but unaffordable 2011 tuscany 4078 front kitchen. I did drive that one, very nice indeed.

Saturday we go back to the first place. He promises new batteries in the tuscany, and both coaches indoors and thawed out. We'll buy one of them I think.

It is my understanding (from a salesman) that all new 2011 diesel MHs have the new DPF Filter Regeneration system. That system adds to the initial cost, reduces power and MPG and add to maint costs. For those reasons we opted not to get a 2011. Once again...info from a new vehicle salesman.

Hoverbill, no reduction in power and some times more power. Yes, and several thousand more cost up front and up keep on service of the system. I just attended Freightliner school. It is the way it is.
