Congratulations - so awesome! I am a fan of the white linen cabinetry and have the same in our 34RLB. I wish we had the vinyl in the slide as I am not a huge fan of the carpet. We were at the factory for the build of our unit and hadn't thought about vinyl prior but stepped into a 22 prototype - we decided to go with vinyl but it was a bit too late as our floor had already been made.

Love some of those 22 changes.

Looks great, Rick! And I agree with r3842id on the 2022 changes. Love them. Am also a fan of (and have) the White Linen cabinetry.

One thing Chase (Nat'l Sales Mgr) mentioned before our tour was that they put a lot of thought into upgrades from year to year. And it is evident.

2022 changes I've noticed (again, all great in my book), as compared to my 2021:
  • Pendant lighting added over galley island
  • Spyder controls and breaker box moved to lower right of pantry <-- (my fav; I don't like mine under the bar)
  • Cabinet door inserts are semi-transparent (wood insert is behind glass on mine)
  • New front cap paint design
  • New decal design on exterior
  • New canvas design/pattern for awnings
  • Two latches to hold the front/battery bay door open (Note: Was previously only one, which does not cut it for that heavy door. Have already broke one here; replaced under warranty.)
  • Anything else???

Congrats on the new RV! And thanks for posting pics!

Also the lighting in the closet has changed from a single motion light to two lights with a lit rod. The closet to me was too dark so that was another welcomed change.

The change in awning is from Carefree to Solera due to supply. I had Carefree on my last rig and had minimal complaints and I made the Solera cut so verdict is still out. I do like that they have the LEDs at the rig side so you can light them without rolling out the whole awning however.

Chase Davis is a rock star. Extremely helpful to us through the entire purchasing process and after.

Congrats again Rick! Beerdude paid attention on the factory tour! He outlined some good upgrades and Spyder control move is a good one that I didnt realize they did - the no carpet is still my favorite!

That closet upgrade for 2022 is wonderful. I totally missed that. Had to look at a YT vid just now to catch what you described. My closet is a comparative dungeon. Ugh. And lift assist on the steps would definitely be a welcome upgrade. Totally missed that at the factory too, so my score drops to a B-.

And I would rather have the LEDs on the rig side of the awning. Can't always get the awnings fully extended depending on trees near the campsite, so sometimes I'm stuck without awning lighting. Am otherwise very happy with my awning build/operation.

Good catches, r3842id!

Nice unit, congratulations! We are at Lazy Days right now in the RV park. We looked at what they had the other day and they don’t have anything in stock that we are interested in.

When we first looked on Oct 5th they didn’t have much but by November 8th they’d gotten new ones in. They were getting new ones all the time
Good luck in your search!

At the rally in April Vanleigh brought some new units that showcased some of the new features. We really liked the closet upgrade with the lighted rod. Our 2020 39FBB still had the old style metal strip with holes cut out and the small motion sensor light. I called Vanleigh and got a quote on the new style rod and order it for around $150. Got it installed and it made a huge difference in the closet lighting. I tied it to the existing motion sensor light so both the light and the new rod use the motion sensor or can be switched to on/off.

Wasn't a real difficult install but did have to make some modifications to get it to fit. We're glad we made this change.

We were at the rally as well! I had been thinking about putting up a strip of LED lights but I will be at the SC in January perhaps I will have Danny change out the rod. Thanks for the idea.

Do you mind saying how much they discounted it from MSRP?

Beautiful rig. I looked at Vilanos about 5
years ago at Vallejo fairgrounds. They are my favorite. Does Vilano install a hitch on the rear to accommodate a bike rack?
