WW Web site says there 98" wide and 16, 18 or 20' to the kitchen sink long for space I think you have plenty of room with the 31, 33 or 35.

Im sorry, I thought you were wondering about this size. My Bad. Sometimes my hands go faster than my brain. Plus, Deb was calling me to dinner.

We went through the same thing about two weeks ago as far as the siding. We ordered our LE 3505 with aluminum and after talking to everyone here we changed to fiber-gel coat. The wieght and price were big hang ups
Your TV has more than enough to get the job done. Maybe bag the rear in the time your waiting for delivery. I'm told that helps with the extra weight.
Honestly, I'm waiting for mine as well, so it looks like it will be a trial by fire for the both of us.

Good Luck
Rod

Sorry Don. Deb tells me I've been puttin' my foot in my mounth all night. I didn't forget about you.
They tell me I can pull a house off it's footings with this truck, so we'll see. What fun is a big ol' truck like this if you cant use it, right?

Griz-
Rod's off in dreamland again...I'd bet he's dreaming of the LE as we speak (I'm sure he ain't dreamin' of me ). Have you heard anything more about the possible earlier delivery date? 11 days will be here sooner or later, but I know Rod (as I'm sure you would too) would love it to be sooner .

OK guys-I'm signin' off.
Deb

Deb No I have not. I'm not gonna get all happy about it. The 23rd is fine. Waiting is part of the excitment of getting a new toy.

Sweet dreams

Measured the Le3305. I can put two quads at the back behind the rear wheel, one in the middle sideways with one into the kitchen area. Or both sideways in the middle so I could walk into the kitchen.

The LE3505, same thing in the back and two in a row ending up in the kitchen area. If wanted to be able to walk in the kitchen while loaded I would still have to turn two sideways. So I might as well go to the LE3305 and save 600lbs.

Still cannot decide on the siding though.

LE3305 / LE3505

I distinctly remember having a very similar conversation with 56Nomad a few months ago.
I will paraphrase it, as i want to go home from a long day at work and don't feel like using the SEARCH function at this particular moment:

56Nomad: "...which of those 2 models are you going to get?..."

FatDog: "... i am going to get the smallest size possible that i can still get a slide on it..."

56Nomad: "...great minds think alike. I just placed an order for a LE3305 also."


I couldn't begin to guess whether 56' is a Republican, Democrat, a hippy or a landbaron, or what.
He IS smart though.

One thing kinda funny about the siding, I told the salesman what I was worried about(denting easily)..he went up to a brand new one with aluminum siding and tapped his knuckels against and made a dent in it. Couldn't believe he did that. When walking around I saw several brand new units with some kind of dents in them.
