We bought our 325res from Tom raper. I wouldn't recommend their service. I had to go elsewhere for upgrades.

I seen the unit at the Dayton show. I would call prime time to validate the rebate.

I really liked the solitude on display.

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.

I did not notice the fireplace, yes it would be nice to use site electric instead of your propane I normally heat mine with a electric space heater which works well 90% except for the extreme cold. Good luck in your search.

I paid 24k for my 318 BHS but it is not the touring edition. I didn't know they had a touring edition until after I purchased. My mistake. But this unit was priced at 32k for starters, I just got the deal at the right time,was last one, end of season ( November)
Last year the touring edition here in NY was at the show for 29,900

Good luck.

318 bhs show pricing

One more thing. I have bought a few of these now and done tons of research. I found that the magic number of markup is around 37% of the MSRP. Anywhere in between 30-35% off MSRP would be a great deal. And they do it...this assuming no trade of course.

I have a 312QBUD Hemisphere. It has an aluminum frame instead of wood. As for the deep draws for your pans, the deep draws are under the kit table. They are deep and pull out about 3 ft or so.


A small electric heater will save a lot of propane.

My dealer...27995 ..I cant remember exactly but I think after fighting for a month I made out for ~28 out the door with the hitch install...didnt finance through them...not sure if that matters

Ive sent several friends there and my sales guy has made the deal EVERY time...

sent from fat fingers with no regard to grammer via a space dish thingy

We bought our 318bhs the week of the show at the dealer since they promised us they would give us show price. Went to the show also and it was 1500 cheaper so I spoke with the manager and they reimbursed us the difference.
