did check out the hemisphere, pretty much same plan but saw a few things that it didn't have. First it was about 800 lighter so I liked that, just what is 800lbs lacking? Model in picture did not have fireplace, something we feel would be nice to use park electric for heat when possible vs our propane. Let me know if it doesn't work that way. If not fuctional, we could ditch it. Appears there is a drawer lacking under the stove, where the lacrosse has I beleive two deep drawers for pans...didn't see deep drawer in pics. We like the pantry layout of the lacrosse better as we see us using lower portion for trash, hemisphere had drawers...may in the end be more useful, not for sure. Wife liked the decor of lacrosse, she wants the hazelnut. We both want the champagne exterior, there was a $1000 upgrade for this alone. We will need to check out these differences and see what the outside kitchen looks like, if it has an outdoor tv hookup and color options. Received a sales quote today from them $29,150 counting taxes, title. I would still need a wd hitch and brake controller. They are throwing in a 42" TV per the show deal, and will store the unit until april. Keep the suggestions coming, ....would like to know if the $28,500 price included tax and title.
