new to M.H, looking at 2650

Hello guys, i'm french canadian so please bear with my frenchglish

Im looking seriously at the 2650 model, i would prefer the 3010 but our city bylaw dont want that size in my driveway, it would be too close from the curb...anyway


For 2650 owner how do you like that size, im not planning for a toad right now, so it is way too big or manageable in traffic and small town and or village ?

Do you think it would be possible to remove the dinette easily, i mean without scrapping everything ? I would like to install 2 small lazy boy instead.

Now regarding the front cap, the one im looking for is a 2015 low miller with a window in the front cap, it is a deal breaker for you, am i looking for trouble with this set up

The mh have only 7000 miles its a 2015 they ask 65k remember were in canad$

Thanks for your input

Most people don't do the front window due to all the old ones leaking. However, these days, they're all built with aluminum framing (no wood to rot).

We don't build as many front windows as we used to, but we never have any problems with them.

Consider that replacing dinette with lazyboys will loose the storage under dinette seats. How important is that to you?

well thats what i realised this afternoon....all the storage is important so i will reconsider my idea

I just wonder how comfortable is the dinette for tv watching in the evening ? Can you remove and or reinstall easylie the table completely from the wall ?

Also i forgot to look, can you move the armchair around or it is bolted to the floor ?

Thanks a million for your input guy, its good to have a place to go like here, that take a bit of the stress away before buying this expensive toy

Glad you're thinking about a Sunseeker. I bought a 2650 with the sofa. It was easy to remove and put in two reclinliners. There is so much storage I never would have needed the storage under the dinette seats. Although we didn't need the upper bunk so we converted that into storage.

I used seat belts from sofa. Unit is just the right size. I can pull a toad or travel without one which is how we are going to Alaska next summer.

We have a Forester 2651 which is the Forester equivalent. I like the length for traffic. Ours has the Sofa in place of the dinette and we have no storage issues. There is only two of us and a medium size dog. The Chair is bolted to the floor but does swivel and also moves toward the rear with locking positions
