Berkshire XLT 45A Owners

We are considering changing back to a Berkshire, but I need to check the measurements of the passenger compartment just behind the front wheel. Can someone measure it for me? I want to see if the Dometic Fridge/Freezer will fit.

We would be coming back from a 2016 Entegra Anthem 44B. We had a 2013 Berkshire 390BH before and we miss the bunks. Entegra has a bunk model, but we really like the floorplan of the 45A.

We had great service and support from Forest River before and as a result, we would not hesitate to buy another Forest River Diesel product.

Hopefully I can squeeze a Dometic Fridge/Freezer into the passenger front compartment...

I have a 2012 390bh and one of the many reasons I like it is the lp/electric frig. I dry camp a lot- and i like not have to run generator to keep frig going. I assume that is why you want the "Dometic Fridge/Freezer" also.

Not really... For us, The basement fridge/freezer is used to keep water and adult beverages cold. It is a great replacement for an ice chest. Forest River puts them in the Charleston and Entegra puts them in the Anthem from the factory.

We dry camp also. With 2 inverters, 8 batteries, solar panels, and Auto Gen, the generator only runs twice per day (as long as it is favorable temps...)

Baddmann, just curious. How do the two companies compare in quality, innovation and responsiveness to problems?

Here's what I put in mine.... Bought the slides and installed it myself.... Love the fact that it extends out past the open slide..... Also - larger than the brand you're asking about....

We left Forest River after our Georgetown and bought a Thor MH. BIG MISTAKE!!! And BTW, Thor now owns Entegra so be very careful. If their same "quality practices" carry over to Entegra, the new products may suffer.
We learned our lesson, we will never stray from Forest River again!!
