Hopefully the same as you ! (4)


I figured 4 x 12 for front 1/2 for each side.

3 x 7 for rear again 1/2 for each side.

I didn't go out and measure. I'm sure your total is closer to actual than mine.

I think they are all different. My two front slides are 3.5x12 and 1.5x 12. The bedroom slides are both 1.5 X 5. Heck let's call it 400 sf and go have a beer.

Sounds close enough to me . Going to be a big change down sizing from 3000 sq ft. Where do you hide in 400 sq ft ?

The bottom line is who really cares as long as you are comfortable; just saying!

RVIA bumped up their maximum for fifth wheels from 400 to 430, so the 382 would make sense.

A 45' Moho could easily be 450 sf or more.

I bet you are spot on!

X2 on big changes!! We will be downsizing from a 4500 SQ FT home with a 3 1/2 car garage Good news is we are gifting a buncha stuff to the kids, and renting a 10x15 inside storage shed while we FT for 5-ish years.

And don't worry too much--the 400 SQ FT is not taking into account the BOATLOAD of cabinets iin the Berkie. We were really amazed and the amount of storage space in the XLT when we toured the factory! And the Basement? OMG! if I recal correctly there is over 160 CF of storage space
