bpe ,as far as the washer /dryer issues goes, in the nose isn't my first choice either, but after sitting back and thinking about it we decided its not going to be an issue , I think once you get settled in you will adapt to the location of the W/D and it will become a non-issue

My 3850D

I have been absent from this forum for awhile. We have been stuck here since April waiting to hit the road but family situation has kept us here. We would like to make the trip to the factory to take care of a few warranty issues before our year runs out. They are not major things but they are critical. I would also like to tell owners of any unit with a slide to be very careful when operating to make sure nothing is laying on the floor as we had a chipped piece from a plate tear up a small section of vinyl flooring. I noticed there are design changes even in our unit so quickly after being first released. We travel with our 18 year old daughter and keep a strictly kosher kitchen and still have not filled the storage areas with the requirement of multiple cooking/flatware. The w/d is not a bother at all, I especially like sitting in the aft area recliners when the dryer goes on spin, reminds me of those old motels with the massage bed....no need for a quarter!

We have to bail out on the trigoly. It is a early model 2013 basically a 2012. According to the factory rep I spoke to it has no insulation in the front cap. He stated they added the cedar shelf in leiu of insulation as that provides as much as insulation in that area. The unit we were looking at doesn't have the cedar in cap. Also he wanting 75,000 for it and I found it for 69995 in several places on line. Also the W/D location is a big minus. We are going with a lightly used drv about same money, much better floorplan. Thank everyone for their input. God bless

bpe , sorry it didn't work out for you , we were considering DRV's also but with all of the options that we wanted that are already on the Trilogy standard , wasn't worth the extra cash and we didn't want to go used since it will be our fulltime rig and we wanted to start out all new. I'm glad you finally found your match and hope it works well and gives you many trouble free miles !

Thanks. I don't know of anything that is on Trilogy that isn't on DRV Mobile Suites. Toppers may not but I question having them. They do provide shade for slides but is the most troublesome item on any rv. Wind literally destroys them. You can find slightly used units. May have to travel a ways. Bought mine used and honestly even the towels were never used. Not a scratch on it. Looked new. Never a problem that isn't common to most rvs.
