I have seen a new 2015 329DS that has these new features in person. Some of the other new things are a recliner sofa with a pull out bed, stands on both sides of the bed in the bedroom, the new entertainment center in the panel over the door. It has the TV with storage behind, and much larger storage below (where the entertainment center used to go with smoked glass front) as well as the table between the front seats.

Here is a similar one online that I found while searching: http://m.rvtrader.com/dealers/Motor-...s.-F-113159050

I received replies from both Kevin in GT Service and Craig (via Deann) in sales with two different answers. I actually chuckled a little bit as this was the experience of sales vs service at the dealership I purchased our RV. Typically sales will always tell you it can be done, Service will tell you shouldn't be done but figures out how to make it work to keep you happy. (I work in the software business and live this first hand!)

Kevin's response:

Thank you for your email into Forest River. In 2015 Forest River re designed the dash, so the center console/ drink holder would not fit in the 2014 models. I apologize that we could not assist you with this. If you need anything further, please feel free to contact us.
Craig's response (I had mentioned the 2015 Chicago RV and Camping show in Rosemont):
Quote:
The center console /cup holder should retro fit with no problems---same for passenger table
There should be two 351ís at the show---Pontiac RV and Barrington
There will also be a new 364, which is an enhanced version of the 351, with two full bathrooms and a huge king bedroom
Hope to see you there
I plan to check out the new 2015 - 351's at the RV show but will also inquire if the 2014 GT 350XL dash components are compatible with the 2014 GT 351DS. Thanks for that suggestion Bubbamace.

It's funny how little things like cupholders get us excited. ha ha Personally I probably couldn't reach it while driving anyway for it to be usable, but that space is begging for something to be there rather than the pile of random charging cables, spare keys and sunglasses that get dumped there.

That's funny! I think what is interesting is he said "for 2015 we redesigned the dash"
Well, I have a 2015 that doesn't have the cupholder piece on the bottom (as well as other things.....) so it's obviously not ALL 2015's (ours was a really early one, arrived last May)
I'm going to email my GT sales guy and see what he says! (not the dealer the NW rep who we see at the shows.)

ChrisAndGarren - I've got the same thing with my 2015 351. We really like our coach but would really like to add the arm rest. Let me know what the outcome of your discussion with the GT sales guy.

bigben -
So heard back from the rep - he's not with FR any longer But he did say we should have no issue ordering the parts from the factory or through our dealer.
I'll let you know what I hear when I get in touch with them, not sure if I'm going to do it now or bother them at the RV show...I'm thinking now to at least see what they can get. They have a 364TS on their lot that has the new upgrades, so I'm sure it would be as simple as walking around with the GM to get them priced etc.
Will keep you posted!

Thanks, I'm definitely interested in what you find out on pricing and availability. I plan to inquire next weekend (Feb 21st) at the Chicago show as I didn't hear back again from the area rep. I'm mostly interested in the center console but hope to get some ideas for dash speakers at least too.

On a side note, I did some measuring yesterday of the area where the current cup holder and map pocket (it barely qualifies as that. ha ha) are in our 2014 351DS and designed out what I plan to build for that space. I want to mount mine higher on the wall than the new 2015's which means I also intend to relocate the leveling system panel. I have a couple house projects to finish up before I get to start that one, but will post pics along the way. I also plan to build a pantry between the fridge and rear slide in all 4.5" width of space there is.

Thanks for sharing what you find.

Tom

FYI. I ordered the console/cupholder for ours. Came without the black cupholders, for$185.00. Dealer is now trying to order the cupholders. The console fits nice, but I had to use double stick tape to hold in place.

No problem - would love to see what you end up building in that space by the fridge!

$185 for the console/cupholder? Not what I expected, yikes. But I'll bet it looks nice! The dash was always missing a little something.

I think there may be confusion between the XL and the non XL. The 351 is not an XL and does not have the features some of you are mentioning. The XL 350 has all the features you are mentioning. Two different trim lines.
