Beat me to it point by point. As did several others. Dining for two or TV trays? Use up 1/3'rd of a MH for a bathroom????

We love the floor plans of the 37KT and also like this model. I don't care for the insulation R values of their RVs. I also wish the 37KT offered a W/D option and a 10gal HW heater.

The front 1/2 of the coach is nice, but that bedroom bathroom layout would be a deal breaker for us.

I'm just not a fan of the rear bath layout on any motorhome. It seems to be a big waste of space to have an extra half bath just so you can use the bathroom at a reststop without deploying the slide. But thats just my opinion. Maybe I'm missing something.

I can introduce you to 1 very good friend of mine that would not have purchased his new motorhome unless it had 2 or at least 1/ 1/2 baths.

Multi-bath floor plans are a part of every manufacturers product line and are very popular.

I know they are part of most manufacturers product line now. That doesnt nescssarily mean they are practical. I would opt for more storage space and a fully usable RV while traveling. But thats just me. If we were all alike it wouldn't be much fun would it?

The DW says she'll take it if they swap in this bath from a Newell:

Well for us there;s nothing better than having the rear bath and a half bath mid ship, like the extra space in the rear bath and we hate having to go through the bathroom to get to the bedroom. Guess that's why they make both designs.

  3. And the dining room does have a window

With only one door up front, I'd be a little paranoid escaping a fire, should that ever happen. Is there a window in the back of this rig that can quickly be pushed out to escape from?

For us, we only have a single entry door - midship, versus up front. I would think that all motorhomes, especially in the bedroom, have to have emergency exit windows. I know that our bedroom window is an emergency exit window.

My thought exactly. When you get right down to it ... what do you use a bathroom for? Most (newer homes) 'Master Bathrooms' have two sinks ... can anyone remember when both were actually being used at the same time?

The big mirror, yaaaaaa that's pretty normal. Retorical question from the past. A guy can wake up and SSS and be out the door in 20 minutes .. but it takes a lady 60 minutes to put on make-up, et. al.

JUST KIDDING LADIES, JUST KIDDING!

If we should ever buy another it will be a deal breaker if it doesn't have a bath and a half. We use more than one bath in the stick, why not in the MH?

Bathroom in Hallway

Looks like a very common fifth wheel floorplan.

Our Bounder has the toilet in the hallway with two sliding doors for privacy. I didn't like it at first but I've gained a certain level of acceptance. We've gotten used to it, and since we only travel with golden retrievers it's never been an issue. DW doesn't like the dinky little spaces they usually put the toilet in, and this design does provide the illusion of a larger bathroom.

That's why they make so many different designs, eh?
