2016 Winnebago Itasca Sunova 36Z

We are excited to finally have our own Coach.

We started off with a gas coach since it fit into our budget.

We looked at probably 20 - 30 different coaches and floorplans.

This was the 2nd coach we looked at and after viewing all the rest kept saying to each other........"Sunova so far".

Love the floorplan of this coach.

Did you look at the option for a washer/dryer hookup?

We looked at several 36Z's on our trip out west but never found one with the option installed.

No W/D is a deal breaker for us. One salesman told us they converted the 1/2 bath for a W/D hookup (think they took out the toilet). I didn't like that option...

Beautiful coach.... Love the colors. Only thing I would really like is a king size bed... Then it would be perfect. Enjoy it!

Our CW salesman told us if we were to order from the factory and optioned for the smaller electric/propane fridge, it would make the pantry area big enough for a W/D install. I wouldn't even consider that. We love the residential fridge and pantry area the way it is.

We bought an 8' x 16' enclosed trailer to primarily bring our Ultra Limited along with us but decided to also install cabinets and a work station for my wife's crafts and include a stackable W/D as well. Will be adding 110V power and a 2" drain pipe for the washer straight down through the floor to a dump valve I can quick connect and run with a sewer hose to the drain when in use. She's loving the idea.

We thought the same thing as well since we normally sleep on a king size bed but like the queen as well.

Actually has more walking space on both sides of the bed and larger end tables.

Nothing wrong with having to sleep closer together either........

Will you be putting in a water heater or just do cold water washes?

Gordon,

I have several options/possibilities for the water hookup but won't be installing a hot water heater in the trailer.

● Since we have an outside shower with hot and cold running water, I could tap into those water lines and create 3/4" hose connections. Install those connections into the face of that compartment by the others and run two seperate hoses to the trailer if needing both hot and cold seperately.

● Or since the outside shower has its own mixing/seperate temperature knobs, I could run one line from the output of the shower, run that to the washer and "T" that hose at the washer so it can be hooked up to both the cold and hot water connections at the washer. The temperature adjustment would then be controlled at the shower. It wouldn't matter the setting made on the washer itself then.

● Or just simply "T" off after our filter (and soon to have softener) at the outside connection and run one to the coach and the other to the trailer.

I think I'll leave the decision up to the wife without informing her of the details. If it's important enough to her to have hot water, I'll be using one of these options.

I know there may be some that will question whether or not we will have enoungh hot water to do this if we decide to but our experience with our water heater has been pretty good compared to what others have experienced with theirs that I've read about on these same forums. Yes, we have a 10 gallon heater but I've taken complete showers myself and then turned on the water in the living room sink and still find 120 degree hot water. We have yet to time and see just how long it takes before it goes cold.

I'm getting a softener soon since this is a new coach. I want to make sure the water/plumbing/fixtures are taken care of asap.

Some images of our first trip a few weeks back in our Sunova.

We had a great time. The weather (rain) spoiled the final half of our last day but all in all, we had a great time.
