In our FL, the sofa on the left is on the ridge. The front side sofa is not.

To the OP:

Don't know if you've made any desicions yet but we live full time in a 39FL RiverStone. 3 srteps up to the living room.....it is not an issue for us. We are 65 and both have bad knees - my wife has had her's replaced and I need them done. Again, the steps do not bother us.

That may be becuse for ue, it is nearly perfect. We like the separate areas of the floorplan. The living area, even though open to the kitchen, is of course higher and the entry/kitchen cabinets provide the separation. For us it is perfect, for others maybe not.

As for issues since we bought the coach, I replaced a water pump and batteries in the door for the keyless entry....nothing else. We have been in -10 degree weather and no freeze ups. We did let the water drip below 20 degrees.

It's really been a good home for us!

Someone mentioned weight. Ours is no lightweight, it's not as heavy as a DRV either. I beleive most of that weight difference comes from the DRV frame. Ours weighs about 18,300# loaded if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the info! I'm not concerned with stairs at all - I'm interested in replacing the couches in the slides with sit to stand desks, and the ones that have a raised slide floor prevent that. Are your's raised, or are they fairly flush?

I'm sitting here looking right now and I can't tall you how much they are raised. Felling under the edge of the couch gives me no real indication. However, the seat heightis noticeably taller than standard furniture....maybe 4 inches which from looking at the bottom is how high the lip seems.

Let me simplify...the floor level of the slide appears to be 4" above the floor, but due to the design of the couch, there is no real way to measure it.

Hope that helps some.

Yeah, we felt the same way. Sitting in that front den just didn't seem right to us (just felt like we were anywhere but camping; some people don't mind that) as opposed to the rear living, with lots of windows. Sounds like you guys are good either way, so keep looking til you find that one floor plan that you want.

The reason for the big grey water tank is that many State Parks have water and electric hook-up but no sewage. So you need a large grey water tank to hold all the shower / dish water. You use the dump station as yoh leave and dump both the black tank and the grey tank.

not sure if y’all made the decision but i wouldn’t look at anything but a front living. found one then was told about a nearly brand new one that was a couple years old. we were told we wouldn’t want to pass it up. well we didn’t and it’s a rear living. the deal with this one is the RV is set up like a house would be. we just fell in love with it. the living room closes off by sliding french like doors. the stairs are not like i’ve ever seen. king bed with washer and dryer combo. 2014 Forestriver Sierra 44 ft

Most all FL's have a raised floor under the two slide out sofas.
Which is why I would go RD if looking for that type of floor plan. There's nothing to see out the front of your 5er but your truck or everyone else's stuff. At least with an RD you can back up to a river, beach, lake, etc and have a nice view out the rear. Also the slides holding the two side sofas aren't raised up like FL's so you could remove a sofa and install a desk or ?.

We saw this floor plan at the Tampa RV Show and it’s currently our front runner. I saw the kitchen and the angels sang! 😍
We are looking to travel with our HD Trike and I love to cook so it seems pretty perfect. It does have an issue with the bedroom closet they need to address but hopefully they will fix that. It seems to be really well built. I will need a workspace on the road so we’re thinking that we’ll replace the sofa on the door side with a desk.
Oh and Jeff is 6’2” and we didn’t feel cramped in the bedroom. The ceiling is no lower than a front bedroom.

I am intrigued by this - RIVERSTONE 39FKTH Fifth Wheels / Toy Haulers by Forest River RV

Would have to see it in person to see how it is, exactly. It's a big trailer tho! Interested to see exactly how the bedroom feels, as it's sitting above a garage....kinda think it might feel cramped. But as the cook in the family, that kitchen is nice. And it has a den, and a place for bikes, dive gear, grill, etc.
