2016 models

Well I saw a few 2016's Berks for sale on RVT.com and also at MHSRV website, I found a few details on some changes but I can't find the specs or paint options listed anywhere.

From what I saw on those two websites the 40XL models have the same BH, RB & GL floorplans but the paint colors and graphics look different.

Anybody know where I can find the spec sheets on them?

Oh and looks like the 2016 Charleston will be all electric, with true induction cooktops.

Here's two of the new color schemes that MHSRV has on their lot.

Yup, I would like to see them extended and it would be nice to have another one on the rear slide.

These units are both XL, which is an upgrade from the run of the mill Berkshire.

Paulie I knew they were XL models, I was wondering about the new 380 Cummins they are using and if any new upgrades were made elsewhere. Obviously they have new paint schemes which look really good to me.


The Charleston also went through some changes with new paint schemes, new front and rear caps and it looks like they are total electric from the True Induction cooktops installed.

I can't find any specs on either one though.

There is are down sides to induction stove tops. You could have to replace your cook ware.
I use All Clad and I would be forced to replace it.
You have to have 50 amp service otherwise the induction stove top is useless.
I'll stay with propane thank you. The ceiling exhaust fan works just fine getting ride of the heat.
All the 2016's we saw at the Elkhart plant were fabulous and the little detail upgrades were too many to name. The big thing for me were additional side opening cabinet doors.

I emailed Randy to see if he could send me the specs and also asked if I ordered a new one if I could customize the furniture lay out.

When I ordered my 2014 390BH, FR was very accommodating to what I wanted with no issues at all!
