Thank you for the kind remarks. It's nice to hear sometimes that we're doing things right.
We based that model off of customer feed back. After working tons of RV shows, many customers wanted a small Class C with a Queen bed. We designed the 2300 to give them a 60x80 Queen in a 24' unit. THEN customers complained that they wanted a U-shaped dinette in that model, so we switched it to a U-shape dinette. The VERY FIRST customer that got that U-shape complained that it was bigger than the regular booth and made their storage closet smaller....they wanted the regular booth back (we had to build them a new one). So we decided to option the U-shape instead. After working several more RV shows, customers said "yeah, this is small, but I don't want a corner bed". Fast forward about 150 "I don't want a corner bed"'s later as we're sitting around the office we said "let's fix that one complaint"...thus the creation of the 2250. Of course at the very first retail show I heard a "this floor plan doesn't make any sense" and it has quickly become one of our top (3) floor plans.
To make a long story longer we've already started to look at a few upgrade possibilities, we're just always balancing that with customer/dealer desire to hold down pricing and a customer desire to add features.
PS. I was at a show in Spokane and saw a franchise where they did "granite" overlays on existing counters. Not sure what you want for counters but this was a pretty neat process.
