Saw several models at small RV show.

We flew into a small RV show in Southern California. We have decided we will stay with the 3750 Floor plan design, when we upgrade. It just seems to meet our needs. Saw a very nice Thor variant. Named after Forrest in Humbolt County Ca. The design was exact, however the living room had two recliners, and two three seated couches. It also had residential appliances, dishwasher..($126,000 price tag) ouch! We really hope Montana might consider that seating set up. Has anyone seen, or heard of floor plan change? We don't mind the pass through bath, as some have had issues. The completely Separate back pvt (no sliding door) bedroom is hard to give up. The front seating would be a vast improvement IMHO!
Any thoughts..

My wife and I have seen this "other" trailer and we like the floor plan very much. The straight on seating to the TV with front recliners.
No you cant see the TV from the kitchen which for some may be a problem?
The only other thing we didn't care for the one we saw did not have a fire place but I think that it could be added.

If Montana comes up with this layout in a front living room it would be on the top of our list.

One thing to consider if you do a lot of boon docking is that the residential appliances, mainly the refrigerator, may make the cost of solar almost if not totally prohibitive. There was quite a discussion or this issue when we were getting our solar installed.

The units we saw have a small fireplace under TV. Looks like hide a bed might block it when deployed? Defeats purpose. The unit did have a forth tv in kitchen!
