Congrats we have had our new 320 out several times already and love it. I was also told on my 2013 there was no option for a ladder. And pics or it didn't happen.

I do not have a ladder on my 292bhds either. I really didnt want one. I use an expandable a frame ladder from the hardware store. It expands high enough in the A frame mode to easily get on top of the roof. Just place it beside the trailer and you are good to go.

Shop Werner 22-ft Aluminum Multi-Position Ladder at Lowes.com

On the ladder - your experience is slightly different. We were told it was not possible. I had emailed a factory rep who said they did not recommend a ladder on the 320. I am interested to see what option, if any, you come up with.

have done several mods to our trailer, and know other users who have done other mods. feel free to post up questions.
Thanks, what mod's are needed? I was told a tv wall bracket mount location will be roughed in the front bedroom.

Alas... I know EXACTLY how you feel. Still waiting for my Sabre 35QSIK to ship from the factory. Apparently the Superlounge in the interior color scheme we picked is on back-order. I can picture in my mind that beautiful couch-less behemoth just sitting at the factory... waiting... waiting... waiting to be united with the family it's always longed for. But we must persevere. Disney awaits and my old trusty Laredo bunkhouse will take to the open road... one last time.

Another user sent me pictures of their bedroom TV wall bracket. They got a schematic from Coachmen showing where to mount. This is on my maybe list, frankly I don't want a tv in there but my wife does...

I am in the same boat as you for the TV.
My wife wants cornices for the front bedroom windows. Has anyone measured off other windows in the camper and ordered these?

my wife measured them last fall with the intent to pick some up over the summer (also wants to get rid of the Venetian blinds there) but never got around to doing anything with her measurements. I would prefer to install the same type of magic blinds that are everywhere else in the trailer.

Jeeplj8 I would love to see the schematic. My wife really wants a TV in there as well. We will have satellite completed before holiday weekend and she was hoping to get a TV in before we go but very doubtful that will happen in time.
