Bought my first RV in May 2013. Forest river 33 ft "C" Leprochaun 317SA.
I really liked the ammenities this class "C" offered. From the outside entertainment center 30" TV and Radio DVD player. The camper kitchen pull out sink and metal extension work table and small refrigerator. Life was good. The 5 ft wide bunk over the cab suited my three grand daughters. The limited work counter space was tight for my wife preping meals. She really liked the floor to ceiling pantry for easy access to can goods etc. The queen mattress was like sleeping on card board, so we upgraded the mattress for a more confortable sleep. The hallway step up/down caused me a night time missed step, so I installed a LED strip light as well as one within the entrance step well to be used as a night lite warning for night walkers.
Additionally I added to the entrance stepwell, a hinged cover to close over the stepwell once we were in for the night or utilized when extra people were in the kitchen area helping Nan and not watching their potential back stepping into the well. Had a few close calls. You would think the manufactorers would recognize this hazard and provide a cover or at least an option to have one installed.
THe batroom sink was quite small and it was necessary for me to open the wall hung medicine cabinet to gain extra inches for me to properly brush my teeth and rinse over the bowl and not onto the bowels edge.
The RV was easy to handle. Some elevated engine noise at highway speeds. Overall we enjoyed this RV and would recommend to other first time buyers. In May 2014 we purchased a 2014 Tiffin Allegro 36LA. Miss some of the Leprochauns ammenities though.

There is another active thread on this forum about the Coachmen Leprechaun , the owners seem to like it. I have been following it as it is a model I have strong interest in. You may want to search the forum and review it, if you haven't seen it already . Good luck on choosing the MH that works best for you

Funny one should mention the sink and med cabinet. That's the same issue with my 2014 320BHS Leprechaun. You have to open to brush teeth...shaving is pretty brutal too.

I did go the the RV show in Houston a couple of weeks ago. I noticed they have removed the med cabinet in favor of just a mirror.

I guess the only other shower is the awkward shower and the placement of the water valves. They are on the length wise side instead of the ends. Difficult to no hit the knobs when showering....

One other thing is the A/C - nothing wrong with but in you may wish you had two / 50 amp service in really hot climates like we live in. Hard to stay ahead of the heat of the day. The front stays warmer.

Hope that helps somewhat. I would do it again I am sure. It still is the best Class C I have seen on the market for it's price range.
