Heated floors

I guess NH used to install heated floors upon request but no longer offer them. Do any of you have the heated floors in your NH?
We have them in our current motorhome but we have all tile floors and love the heated floor option, something I'm sure we will miss if we have to do without them.

Make sure you get two furnaces as our 35 footer only came with one. NO WAY will it heat in zero degree weather. Furnace runs on low speed most of the time which means not much air flow. It will not heat like your motorhome with one furnace.

Thanks for the tip. I'm sure we will be looking at a little closer to a 40' unit so we will certainly keep in mind a second furnace.
We have a Aqua Hot system in our motorhome and love it compared to the propane we had in our last motorhome and toy-hauler 5th wheel before that.
Between the Aqua-Hot, the heated floors and our fireplace, whew, we can keep warm.
Even though we have absolutely no plan to ever camp in zero degree weather LOL!!

I have a 34' Majestic with 2 furnaces but also have 2 electric fireplaces. This gives me the option of using the CG's electricity instead of my propane which goes quickly when heating.
So far I'm very pleased with the coach staying warm.
Wood floors throughout also helps, as they don't feel cold on the feet as do tile.

Where is your second fireplace? I assume one is in the living room. Using the campgrounds electric when we are not paying for it is another reason we like the heated floors as well, and our fireplace.

The 2nd fireplace is in the bedroom.
See the attached pic taken during production.
I had specified specific fireplaces where you can set the exact temperature. Low, med, high mean nothing; but going to sleep at 68 is a wonderful thing!

I wonder if they will still install the Aries Gold in floor heating?

It's not on the options list.

The list is a starting point for a Majestic build. I'd call Drew or Cole and inquire. An Aqua-Hot is a pricy option. Just taking the chill off the floor with electric should not be a big issue.
