the bathroom will make all the difference in the 3051. it sold us. having the sliding door closed at the kitchen turns the whole bathroom/bedroom area into a master suite. plenty of room to towel off and dress. doing that in the bathroom alone would be tight. plenty of counter in the 3051 also. not convinced I like the tv up in the bunk but most watching will be outside or in bed, knowing our habits! lol

We are also sold on the 3051S, due to the larger shower and the separate sink/mirror area that wife can use while I'm taking a shower. The TV location may be a bit of a problem for us, as we don't watch TV in bed or outside. I have looked at various TV brackets to extend the travel of the TV so it's more directly across from the sofa. Also have thought about relocating the TV on a flip up bracket and mounting it to the overhead cabinet doors above the dinette. We'll figure it out though. First we have to place our order and get the MH. Can't wait.

Do any of you have the twin recliners in stead of the couch ?

Seems like a good option as opposed to the standard couch, and what looks to be a unevenly padded, and lumpy fold out bed.

Is the Air Rite system located only in the rear? Air pressure added and checked with a standard auto pressure gauge and pump ?

Bob, the Firestone Air Ride is only for the rear and the pressure is checked individually in the two rear compartments behind the dual wheels. A standard pressure gauge will work as long as it goes up to 100# which is the max for the bags. I have a portable compressor that travels with us and use the big compressor when at home. You just have to quickly bump the pressure if using a large compressor as it does not take much to bring them up. Some people have used bicycle type pumps but I could not get my el cheapo Wal Mart pump to work very well.

If it was not for the DW wanting the extra sleeping capacity I would have gone with the Theater seating. Much more comfortable reclining. As it is I ended up buying a foot stool which also has some storage inside and use that to elevate my legs.

Steeljag...You can only get the twin recliners in the 3010S/3011S !! If you want a 3051S like we do....you're out of luck! I've been hoping for months now that FR will finally make them available in the 3051S, but evidently they are not going to. I'm afraid that they will make them available just after we buy and get stuck with the sofa.

the outdoor TV compartment is behind couch in the 3051. We thought of pulling that couch but there won't be room for recliners there.
