Top 5 front bath 5er

Dw and had really liked the front living units but now she is leaning more towards the front bath unit. Having the large front bath and the extra 1/2 bath. Appeals to her, plus all the extra storage the fb has over the fl does. My downside is having the kitchen and living rooms together. We are going to be full timing in this unit and want one that is built to hold up to the daily wear and tear plus weather conditions. We have looked at the Heartland landmark and the redwood 36 MB just wondering what everyone would consider the 5 best quality fb units for full timing for around $100k.

I really like the DRV 44 Houston. Dear sweet wifey really likes the hallway on the off-door side, so we ended up with the 41RSSB4. I think if I got her inside one that might do the trick for our next one though...

We have the Excel 37SDF, which has the front bath and a ˝ bath. Really great setup for us (we full time). The front bath is full width since no hallway separates the bath. Room for a larger shower and dual vanities. The ˝ bath has come in handy on occasion as was s if you have guests. Company closed a few months back, but might be able to find one still on a dealer lot somewhere. Ex-employees have re-opened the service department. Anyway, whether Excel or SOB, the front bath has been a great design for us.

I like the Montana 3900FB. It amazes me how large the bathroom is.
