I think I remember a cup holder in the left. I thought it was about time they did that bloom close I think it's there on the left half way.

This looks just like the one i saw last week driving around Moline, IL on I280. It was a delivery heading west. If your buying one look close at the rear radiator access door. It looked like it hinges at the bottom and has gas shocks at the top. The one I saw was going down the road with it open. Shouldn't be a big as there is little wind to catch and hurt it.

X2 on the cockpit conveniences. And speaking about the cockpit, it is bewildering that there is no high beam or marker light flashers. Granted, you get these with the Smart Wheel option, but with autos you don't need to buy extra the option for high beam flashers or side view mirrors (maybe before your time). Most people do not order their motorhome and therefore do not even have the chance to select the options. Hope that FR is listening!

I didn't know the smart wheel was an option in the Berk. I agree with the cupholders and drawers. Would love a leather steering wheel for those 10 hour travel days. Looks like the got rid of the fog lights as well.

As far as I know, it is not an option on the Berkshire. It is standard on the Charleston though.

I don't wanna thread jack, but I do have storage under cup holders in my 2015 Charleston that I didn't have in my 2014 Berk and it's awesome. Did you say you did have it there? We looked at both 2015 Berk and Charleston and I thought I saw that drawer in both.
I am going to take some detailed pics of my outside and inside as soon as we get power back. Our shore power and on site storage are brand new..and we apparently had a glitch in our outlet. The RV is dead :-(.

Phil, there's no cup holder on the left side of the steering wheel. The arrangement on the left is the same as in our '13 -- 12V outlet at the rear, auto-level system in front of that, then transmission pad. In front of that are the parking brake and the mirror adjustment and heater switches, and ahead of those are a dash A/C outlet and the toggle switch for the message center. Above that are the turbo pressure and engine temp guages.

The right side guages are laid out the same as on the '13 -- fuel/DEF, oil pressure, alternator, and front and rear air pressure. Toggle switches on the right are similar, with the addition of the step cover switch (in a separate location on the '13) as well as left and right map lights (not on our '13).

The side view cameras have been moved from the sides of the coach to the convex mirrors. The stereo/camera monitor/CD/i-Pad system now includes GPS, which I've turned on but not yet used.

Another owner, you kinda snuck in there, almost missed it.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new coach. Please post some pics and happy travels to you.
