There was not one at the Rally.

We happened to see one, with that window in the bedroom. It was a SOB at the dealer that provides the rally attendees dinner.

At one of the seminars, it was pointed out that that will be a buggar with bugs upon arrival at camp. As you know, many campgrounds get rather snarky about washing down the rigs. Maybe just a squeegee and a little bit of water in a bucket?? Or some of the neato cleaning products available. But, really, who wants to look out this monster window through all those bugs. I thought it was a good point.

The love bug eraser makes taking bugs off the front cap with just a tad bit of water on it. Still doesn't entice me to go for that rig though. John

We have one in our park in florida (SOB). He has had issues with leaks which he attributes to stress on the window seal while towing, Another SOB years ago had one, but with a cover similar to a tag along.

Looks like it would put an end to eating and watching TV.

The sheet that Keystone gave us with all of the floor plans showed "top secret" where the 3820 was listed, Then they passed out the floor plan for the 3820 on a separate sheet. We're not sure one has even come off the production line yet.

Mrs. Country Guy, believe it or not, the Croftgate Wash n wax can be used on Windows. We used it on our truck windows and now bugs can be wiped away with a damp rag.

Well, you aren't going to be towing it with less than a 450, 4500 or a MTD. Your 1 ton duallies aren't big enough. These trailers are getting too big and too exspensive.

One of the other RV lines Keystone makes has that floor plan. It's interesting, but not sure I like middle LR.

A co-worker has a Rushmore Lincoln made by Crossroads. It has the front glass as well. He and his wife thought it was the "cat's meow" when they bought it ... he says the meow has worn pretty much off closing in on one year of ownership. No mechanical issues, just not as awesome as initially thought.

We have he 3735MK with the mid living room,before we saw it in person did not think much of a mid living either,the living room is Huge and when you walk in our front door you step into this huge open space instead of a kitchen counter in your face when you walk in the door like our old 3402RL and the 2 entry doors really come in handy like our MK .we love it

I saw the 3820FK at the show in South Cal and loved it so much we ordered one! The front glass does worry me a little bit but, I will figure out a way to protect it so the bugs wipe off. In regards to watching TV while eating, you can sit in the dining seats and the TV is in your direct line of sight. I don't see it as a problem at all.some of what I don't like about this model is weight, less basement storage than other models, no residential refer. Other than that, we like it and can't wait to get it delivered.

Dick-- Time to buy a smaller counter top flat screen teli to watch while you're eating any meal if you need to watch while putting that meal down.
As Mrs. Country Guy stated-- we did not see one when we were at the factory tour for the Fall Rally. Asked about it and was told they had to send it out to CA for the show in Southern CA because it was the only one they had yet that came off the line. I'd like to see one also but I think I'd change the booth type dining to a regular table and chairs just because we prefer that over the booth type dinette. Seems like a good idea but as richfaa and bigred715 stated it is heavy and I'd rather stay with my 1 ton for towing instead of going higher. They definitely are making them heavier and longer but eventually they will have to stop because they will reach their allowable limits. They are making so long now that you cannot get into some parks while traveling or staying for the winter as snowbirds.
