The second slide sounds great on the inside but does it get in the way on the outside? Looks like it has better cabinet layout now and hopefully fixed the axle issue too. My wife likes the bedroom better too.
Is the couch/recliners comfortable?
I'm hoping they have one at the RV Show in Hershey PA this month so I can look at one
MrDon, I have the recliner / couch and it is comfortable, but have a couple of large towels over the vinyl. It would be nicer with fabric inserts. I won't trade it for the dinette... no way. I don't see how the slide could get in the way outside. It does prevent you from getting into the fridge without running the slide out.
I have heard that kitchen slides sometimes have trouble with fridge cooling and some add more fan or fans.
I don't know what you mean about the axle issue. It would appear that it comes with the same 4400# axles that only allow 2483# cargo in this model, but less when options are added.
If I was buying new, I would look seriously at the Nitro models and for me the 5th wheel, 29UDQL5 looks very good. By the way, the 31FQSL is very similar to the 29HDS, its just heavier but also has way more cargo capacity, not to mention fresh water, etc.
