Thanks for the comments Tom and for sure going with floor heating.
Been following and enjoyed (guess I'm sick... lol) the FL vs Spartan debate for years and I think it's like the Ford vs Chevy debates. Made sure to pick the brains of the Spartan and FL Reps at the Hershey show displays the past few years. Spoken to current FL users at the Hershey shows (few had Newmar rigs) and there are numerous others like Neal on this forum who like FL. Personally, I can't justify last years $3.5K price difference. With $6K I could get the FL extended warranty and pay for a good portion of a nice solar setup if we end up liking to boondock (we're going to get the solar prep).
Another cost I'm debating is the $2.4K Xite Dash Radio/Rand McNally Navigation charge. Currently thinking buying a nice 8-10 inch tablet and going with the Sygic Caravan App (uses same HERE maps as Garmin, can set the RV height/weight, etc ) for my GPS needs. Not sure yet how to attach the tablet to the DS dash yet. Lot's of good reviews by truckers who utilize their Truck App.
It's going to be an interesting year selling the stick/bricks, buying the DS and going full timing this fall!
