New owners of a 3601!

Went to the local Boat and RV Show last weekend. We were looking to trade our 2011 Sabre 31RETS for a 2014 Open Range Roamer 387 RLS. 4 seasons, island kitchen, nice unit! It would be 6 to 8 weeks for the build. I had done very through research and had a plan. Yeah, right!

Well, we were blindsided by the Sanibel 3601! The additional 3 feet in length was my only concern. The wife was in love and I was torn over the 3 feet! She finally says “How long is three feet? Show me.” I grab one of those yardsticks that they always give out at the shows and held it parallel to the ground. I say “This is 3 feet.” She looks at like I’m from Mars and says “ you’re worried about that?!?!?” Decision made! The unit is outstanding, has all the features we want (and some) and the “show price” point was comparable to the Roamer. Arrived at the show at 10am. Deal was signed by Noon. We pick it up this Saturday!

I must say, Paul Morrison, the factory rep with Prime Time, is a great rep for the company and a really good guy. He was very knowledgeable and patient. He actually called a product engineer with a question on the range exhaust vent. Left a message and the guy called back in 5 minutes with the answer. This is on a Saturday! We’re super excited and really impressed with the Sanibel as a unit and Prime Time as a company!

I have a 2014 3600 and loving every use. The room, the comfort and I can say that the heating is pretty even throughout. I love the layout, the water bay, and it tows like a dream.

I will recommend that if you want to avoid cold shoes/clothes from the closet in colder then 30F weather you should leave the door open. Otherwise, in my unit that area stays much cooler then the bedroom, I wish they had extended the furnace duct to the other side of the bed, even a small vent in the closet.
