I will be ordering the 3401 model shortly with the specials I selected back in May while at the factory. Still looking for a good dealer willing to deal I will also be doing a factory pick-up and then if I decide to get the LS will be going to their factory which is a relatively short distance from the Newmar Factory. .

Hope you post your experiences on here after you get the LS will be following here for it
We got the 3626 4 slide unit. So far we love it. I think we will love it much more after the suspension upgrade. We had a gas coach back in 2003 for 4 years before we went to a diesel pusher for 14 years. This new chassis is light years better than the 03 was. Still has room for improvement that I'm hoping the LiquidSpring will fix. If you have any questions about ours that would help you ordering I'll be glad to try to help.

This actually, to my mind, makes it hard to even imagine how a tow truck would be able to get my coach into a towable attitude. I've been towed once (fun) and they need to disconnect the driveshaft which, if it's low, is not going to be super accessible.







That's what we did, up to the factory. I figured I'd much rather have the experts do it, which paid off... they had to fabricate a tailpipe for us due to an unexpected and apparently unusual routing from the factory.





My exact thoughts as well. I'd rather the experts that are in the shop that build the units do it than someone a distance away.

Thanks for the heads up on the exhaust. My exhaust looks ridiculous where it comes out. It's about 6 inches in front of the rear tire and sticks about half way between the coach and ground. Looks funny as crap. Hopefully they'll make it look better if mine needs relocating some.

Thanks I may take you up on that via PM. Getting ready in August to sign on the dotted line put eh deposit down and finally order

I really like the 3626 but the 3401 is under 35' and has two less slides to deal with. For most of the time it will be just Jake (my dog) and me the 3401
