My idea of a perfect Perfect class A (does anyone even make one)

My idea of a perfect Perfect class A
34’-36’
Kitchen on Drivers side
Kitchen table on passenger side, no dinette
Large window on passenger side
AC unit in basement, not roof
Quiet generator
Basement storage comes out with super slide
At least 25” slide out width
22” tires
And lastly, a Gas Pusher
Now in the real estate business we always tell people that if they can find 80-90 percent of what they want, they should buy it. There is no 100%perfect home. Am sure that is the case with motorhomes also-- but we can dream.

No I haven't. But it sounds like a great idea.

Does anybody make a gas pusher?

Why do you want the kitchen on driver's side? Just curious, because our slide is driver's side and a kitchen would add a lot of weight to the slide.

A friend of mine has the kitchen on the drivers side and loves it. On the passenger side he has a large window and table. They can sit there and see what is going on with the rest of us when we park in a circle. Just makes it nicer. Theirs is a Winnebago. They are looking for another, and wants whatever they buy to have the table on the passenger side.

I did see a gas pusher for sale online a while back. It sold quick. That one was a 2008 Winnebago.

To the best of my knowledge, gas pusher chassis , has gone the way of the Do-do bird , with end of 8.1l Chevy engine production.
Someone in the Workhorse Chassis forums may be able to tell you how many of the chassis were produced, but finding out which companies built on the chassis, and what floor plans were available could be a full time job.

It sounded like you were describing my Itasca Ellipse 40FD... until you got to the part about it being a gas pusher with 22.5" wheels and only 34/36' long.

Now you've done it , Rick.
Your posting , could end up costing me big time, DW just said that's what I want. I said she'd have to go back to work. Now the fight is on.

EDIT: I know ; off topic.
