I see from the subject that you are looking at the 2014.5 Challenger 37GT. I can tell you that I have been looking at many floor plans, and this one soots our lifestyle better than most others that we looked at. We ordered one and expect to take delivery sometime in the next few days.

We liked both the DT and GT floor plans, but liked the GT for a few more reasons than the DT. A few things to consider;

1) The GT floor plan means that you will need to walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom. That was not a concern to us, but others may not like that.
2) We like the GT kitchen area a great deal, but that may not be a focus item for others.
3) We love the bathroom layout a lot, with the separated sinks. I am very different than my wife in regard to that area, and therefore it is better to have our own individual sink area.... Enough said...
4) The dining table in the GT fit our needs a little better, but the DT has a very nice window by the table.
5) The DT has a nice fireplace in the living room, the GT does not. That may be a more important option to some.

Regardless, both the GT and the DT are very nice coaches.

I'm also planning on making a XM holder with power for my Roady 2 in the outside entertainment center. If I come up with a clever way to reset the breaker on the inverter without removing the cover I'll be posting that up as well.

Did you get much snow where you are? I ended up with only about 3" maybe 4.

Hi there: I see you have a challenger 2013. I'm looking at the 2014 1/2 challenger GT 37 gas mh. Can these mh's tow cars Ok? I have a Prius.

I have been towing a 2008 GMC Acadia with no problem. I did just buy a fiat so I could tow lighter.

I flat tow a 2013 Honda CR-V. The hitch is rated for 5K lbs.

In regard to Toyota cars, I was informed by Toyota that none of their cars are able to be flat towed.

I have a Kar-Kaddy 360 SS tow dolly so I can tow either car I wish to take. The dolly itself weighs about 500 pounds and I towed my Jetta from Jersey to Key west without a single issue.

Best wishes with the new GT!

Dealer showed me how to easily do it. By pass and drain water heater, pump pink stuff through pump, drain low points, add to P-Traps, etc. Did not turn on ice maker, but will drain line to be sure.

. I think I've winterized mine three times this winter.

Yep, I understand. First read your manual to be sure, under the "Recreational Towing" section.

If it can't be flat towed, as Don said, you may think about using tow dolly.

I started out using a tow dolly because I had a Honda Accord, which also could not be flat towed. I quickly found that it was very difficult to use and did not fit my needs. If I were younger, stronger, or had no other choice, then that is an alternative means of pulling your car. For me, I rather upgrade my car than have to use a tow dolly... Just my thoughts on the subject.
