I think someone mentioned that the bed uses the same split mattress as the 24R, so the "head" end slides up over the "foot" end when the slide is retracted.

Our Youtube research led us to get excited about this floorplan already. Nexus 23p put it on a Ford chassis. We are thrilled that we can have it on a Sprinter body. This is our firm choice for when we go on the road next year. I'll be working out of it and taking my DW of 41 yrs on a road-trip that we've long needed.

The floorplan is designated "W". From our point of view, it is superior to any other in virtue of being one where you can sleep on the bed without any sliders out, making it optimal for dry-docking in parking lots and rest areas where you should not extend your slides.
It won't suit every size of owner, but it will the two of us. I figure that the diagonal of the folded bed will be 70 1/2".
What sells us on it is the walk-around bed, much better than the corner bed. We're saving our $ for this.

The rear queen bed is a split bed, so when the slide is in, the head half comes in and stacks on top of the foot half so making it hard to sleep on. However, the dinette and cab over beds are ok to use.
We have ordered this floor plan and will hopefully get it in a few weeks.

A squared + B squared = C squared. Who knew highschool math would come in handy figuring the diagonal sleeping space in a bed.

71" as stated above. Not too shabby for a quick nap on the run.

Although the overhead or dinette might be easier.

We attended the Houston RV show this weekend hoping to decide between a corner bed or rear slide bed version. That didn't happen and now I find the floor plan! We cant wait to see it in person, but it may be a while before our local dealer (Toppers RV) gets it.


A big issue for me is the usability of the cab seats. Some MH's have such a huge drop from the coach floor to the cab floor that you are almost sitting on the floor. I am ok with the drop in the 2400S, is it the same in the 2400W?


On that note, Winnebago sells a booster seat that sits on top of the seats to bring them up to the approximate level of the dinette. I think that's brilliant, does Forest River offer that too? If not its the same seat so I may be able to just order them from Winnebago.


Also, can anyone tell me how many outside steps this unit has? I think the 2400S only has one and that one almost seems unnecessary.


No dealers have photos or videos, are these not on dealer lots yet?

Same drop on all floor plans

I asked our furniture guy to provide a proto, still waiting.

The cab seats are swivel. When they turn and face coach, my feet rest on the coach floor very comfortably. I'm 5'10" by the way.
