No you have outdated information. They now have an 18 cu. ft. Norcold RV fridge as standard equipment. Or you can opt for a 22 cu. ft. residential and have an inverter. I do not know where your information came from but the line that makes the Bayhill, Lifestyle and Alfa offers the 18 cu. ft. elec/lp or 22 cu. ft. residential w/inverter.

I travel full time without my wife, so ease of cleaning is a priority.
We are not wanting to remove the linoleum in the kitchen area. Only in the living area. You have to look at the 375RE floorplan to be able to understand.

Thanks for your report on the factory tours, Shrod. One thing that bothers me a little on the Bay Hill is the lack of a rear cap like the Big Horn and several others of its competition have. It just looks a little unfinished to me. We also have been looking at the Big Horn and Bay Hill fivers and would be interested in any other comments about what you saw at the factory.

Thanks.
I used window screens which I would think the screen will allow adequate air flow. What would be the results of the reduction in air flow? Why should I be concerned with back pressure?

I find this very hard to believe. I don't know if they give tours per say but you can get individual tours. The sales manager gave me my own personal tour just last Friday. You did not talk to the right person. Try again and ask for Steve Holland.

I understand your concern of no rear cap. Eventually there will be one. The Lifestyle has a rear cap but it is a step above the Bay Hill. I know the Bighorn looks fancier with the rear cap but you lose out on quality on the interior. So for about the same price do you want it to just look good on the outside or actually be good on the inside? And besides this is only seen from the rearend view. Really ask yourself, what good is a fancy looking rear cap? Does it do anything to improve the actual trailer. NO! But it sure adds to the price!

I have heard of several persons having the 379FL and are very satisfied. I chose to get the new 375RE which is basically the same floor plan but in the rear. We like it because it has a patio door opening to the outside which makes it very light and bright inside and just seems more house like. Also since the living area is not raised the low divider wall becomes a corian topped counter so adds additional counter space to the kitchen.

Exclamation Thread warning

TO ALL,

Several posts required edit due to violations of the Community Rules everyone accepted when joining iRV2.

These rules include being respectful of others. Personal exchanges will not be tolerated.
Also, profanily or disguising profanity with special characters is not allowed...everyone knows what you mean and is seen as attempts to work around the site's language filter.

Future violations of the CR's could impact membership benefits.

Thanks for understanding,
iRV2 Staff
