Just like someone pointed out, the living room is freezing and the bedroom is warm. Forget that. Get the 2nd a/c unit and be done with it.

And yes, my a/c cycles off and on for a few seconds. Not sure why it does that!

Storage

Hi All,
I'm new to the forum and am looking to purchase a Cougar 321RES. My wife and I really like the layout and the look of the TT. My only issue is the lack of outside storage. Can someone tell me the dimensions of the outside storage opening, the dimensions of the under bed storage area and the depth of the bedroom closet? I'm trying to figure out where I would put things if we ecide to purchase one. Thanks...

Jim

Hey Jim, Welcome!!!

I will get you those measurements this afternoon when I get home if someone doesn't beat me to it. Yea the storage can be a little tight...I should have listened to my wife - "Get a fifth wheel and be done wit it"

Hey Jim (thayer027),

Those measurements are as follows:

Front compartment doors: 19"w x 15 1/4"h
with the front compartment: 27"w x 19"h x width of trailer

Under bed storage:
front side; 48"w x 27"d x 14 1/2"h
back side; 48"w x 43" d x 7 1/2" h

Front closet:
at the floor; 28"d x 42 3/4" h x width of trailer
up under shelf at top; 16"d x width of trailer

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else. I did end up buying a couple of those Rubbermaid trunks to keep the electrical stuff in and some other things in the other one and then throw in the back of the truck. Kind of eases up the storage problem.

Jimmie

If you aren't worried about the extra heat coming from the sunlight in the bedroom (which i'm not since I have the 2nd a/c unit), I have a quick and cheap fix for the sunlight problem. I put a small piece of velcro on the window and another piece on the cloth shade. Voila!!! We can sleep in with little to no sunlight! LOVE IT!!! LOL

Be sure to check out Pete's RV. There's where I bought my 321 last year and by far they gave me the BEST deal!!! Paid right about $24,000 for my 2012 and we love it!!!

Honestly, we were worried about the storage as well. We owned a 5th wheel before this and the storage in the basement was unreal!!! BUT, I was pleasantly surprised that everything we need fits in the 321 storage area up front. There is a laundry chute that goes from the closet into the storage BUT I think that's the stupidest thing on the camper thus far. Does anyone here actually use that chute for laundry? Who has room for that?

The closet is HUGE and there is plenty of storage in the camper. I have been using my 321 for over a year now and I still have some empty cabinets. I have been camping for about 4 years now so I have learned to downsize. You are camping.. you don't need to bring your WHOLE house with you... My darling BF taught me that! So, before I put something in the camper, I ask myself, "Will I really use this OR will it just take up added space?" 9 out of 10 times, it stays HOME! LOL

Trust me.. It's worth every penny!!! Our 321 did NOT come with the 2nd a/c wiring preinstalled BUT the dealer was able to tie into it and make it all ducted. No more freezing in the living room while the bedroom is HOT!

We talked to a salesman from Camping World at a recent Good Sam Rally we went to. He was ready to buy our camper from us on the spot when he found out we had 2 ducted a/c units and 50amp!! LOL

Regarding the 2d AC unit - What size wiring would be needed to run this? I only ask as we had a Fantastic fan installed when we ordered the trailer and am curious if the wires are adequate for the AC unit?
We do not need it here - but if we ever venture south, it may be a good upgrade.
Thanks
