2017 38A

My 2017 Berkshire 38A just arrived at the dealer. I can not wait for them to get it ready. One thing I noticed on the 17 that was not on the 16 is they now have a power sun screen on the front windshield. Not sure of anything else that they changed. When I get it and see other things changes I will post.

So are you saying you didn't have to pay the dealer the $900 to get one installed?

That's true. It came from the factory with it on. Must be a 2017 new item.

Hi Ron,
Congrats on the new 38A and welcome to the Berkshire family! We love our 38A! It is a very sturdy, well made coach that drives like a dream!
Our 38A has the power shade, but only the night shade. Did yours come with a power day AND night shade? I am thinking I am going to have to contact Forest River and see if I can get an upgrade while we are in Goshen for the 2016 International Rally Aug. 14-20 The day shade really cuts down on the amount of heat coming in to the coach during the day.
Thanks for the info, please keep us posted.
Karen

That's great. That sun shade is two useful and Forestry Rivers should not have deleted it from the 38A. I guess they figured that out now.

No it wasn't an option when we ordered ours (had it been available I definitely would have added it!!). I guess it was a cost cutting idea to NOT offer it in the 2016s (just not a real good idea)
