Feedback on the 2013 Knight 38PFT?

Hi Folks, my wife and I are narrowing our selection to include a Knight 38PFT. We haven't had an opportunity preview one yet so our interest is based on spec and floor-plan. We'd appreciate comments, good and bad from existing owners, particularly full-timers or folks using it for extended use.

One thing we'd like to learn some specifics about is the passenger side pantry backing up the bathroom. Is it a single door, double door, drawers and shelves? If someone was willing to post a few pics we'd be very grateful.

I love the foor plan with the Full Wall Slide. The "pantry" is moved around each time they make a new year model. Mine is along side the Norcold. deSanford

Any chance you could post a pic of the pantry with the doors open. Or just email me one.

Thanks for the feedback!

Mine is on the driver's side and it is floor to ceiling with 2 doors and shelves. The shelves don't slide out (it would have cost Navistar a couple of dollars more). deSanford

Thanks. Sounds like a significant amount of nice storage, just what we want.

Check out the engine noise from the Maxxforce engine VS a coach with a Cummins

Are you implying that one is significantly different that the other? I have had both and I think the Maxxforce is slightly louder from the outside at an idle, but can't hear either while traveling.
