Models with Generator in the Front

I've been looking for Class A models where the generator sits in the front far from the main bed.


So far the Fleetwood Fiesta has it. I looked particularly at the 2009 Fiesta 34N.



I've seen some mounted in the middle like the Thor Hurricane but lots of others have it in the back right under the bed where we would be sleeping ( Winnebago Sightseer, Georgetown) which I find it a nuisance with the noise and vibration.


Anybody else have looked for models with the generator in the front ?

Nearly all diesel pushers have the generator up front.

You really need to let folks know if you are leaning towards a gas or diesel. As said most diesels have the gen up front, my meridian has it up front. The two gas class a's I had both were located in the rear part of the coach.

I so far only looked at Gas as they usually fit my budget better. I'm trying to locate something with bunk beds in good conditions.

Gassers do not have room in the front for a generator due to engine position. There are things you can do to dampen the noise, and a genturi from Camco will quiet it further, and get exhaust above the roof.

Don't think that's true as the Fleetwood Fiesta I saw had it right, under the driver seat.
