Some of these what I call "alternate floor plan" fivers have ZIP for outside storage if one does actually look past the eye candy. Are you supposed to pull a small enclosed utility trailer to compensate?

Even though we are not in the market, that is an impressive looking front cap. Call it eye candy or whatever, it still looks very sharp!

We saw one this past weekend at the Little Rock show. It's a very nice unit. However, we don't care for the upstairs living room. To me, it breaks down the openness from the kitchen to the living room and it feels very "sectioned" off. Some will love it, but not us. We'll stick with our 3610RL. :-)

Impressive look it is for sure as we just got our first chance to see one at our local show. It was drawing a lot of crowd reaction and is a very nice unit but it's just not the floor plan for us and agree with opinions of Kathy & Brian.

But we do like eye candy as well!!!

So this is the front living room model. Storage was comparable to what we have. For our purposes, the storage is ample enough. The window which does look impressive, I first saw on a Presidential Model I think it was a few years ago, appears to me to be a bit of a waste. If you are watching TV it blocks the window. The window is tinted and so its not like looking through a regular clear pane. I like the floor plan, and the window certainly looks "cool". I am imagining cleaning it.... a lot! CW3Jason and I saw this unit this past weekend. The 2016 models (at least the ones on display) had nothing over what either one of us currently have. Still the show was great, getting together with a bunch of friends also a good time! Come on Spring!

I suppose it looks great (& expensive), but I would hate to have to clean off all the bugs on the front after pulling it for 2000 miles. And we do need the storage! Guess I am being to practical.

I agree with Kathy an Brian also. You take the bath and bedroom to the lower level it just feels crowded.

I like some of the models with the raised rear bedroom as it gives you lots more basement storage behind the axles. I like lots of storage capacity but would probably collect to much extra stuff. As for the new window in the front I think it looks nice. Depending on where you camp looking out the front verse the rear can make a lot nicer view.

So...nobody's mentioned it yet but was there an MSRP? I think it's a beautiful coach, maybe not the most useable floor plan for us, but I can drool at them going down the highway!

John I would think if you still have the correct ratio of hitch weight you should not porpoise. I can understand what you are saying.

I own the 2016 3711FL and the pin weight is 3120 so it has plenty of pin weight and sitting about 22 percent of gross weight.

I think the show price was about 75K. The interior was...how do I say it... dry. It seemed, other than the furniture, and interior designer didn't have a cut at it. Perhaps the price reflected its stripped down appearance. Our 3750FL seemed / seems more finished. It is hard to put my finger on.
