we are going to the dealer this saturday, we have free camping : ) and the sales rep will be showing us the 31RK, so will address this need and let you know how the TV thing works out and whether or not it is an issue. I know what you mean about turning your head to watch TV, but we do love how the kitchen part just opens up the area. If there is anything else you want us to address, post here before saturday and we will ask the rep.

I agree with SilverbackMe...it is all personal preference. Our TV is not on a swivel. But we did not have an issue watching a movie. We pulled out the 2 recliners a bit and angled them and DW and I sat on the couch and were comfortable. But that is us...best to test it for yourself.

Good Luck,
Ken

Do not make that leap

[QUOTE=guerhi;654275]My husband and I have been looking to upgrade from our TT to a 5th wheel as well. I am really interested in the 31RK from the pictures and information that I have found online. My problem is living in New Mexico I havenít found any close enough to take a look at in person. I am a little nervous about purchasing a 5th wheel without actually seeing it. ]

I have never made a major purchase I did not see. There are a heck of a lot more important things to consider, other than, it looks great, before plunking your hard earned money down and hoping for the best. We spent 2 hours inside, outside, full walkthrough of a 2014 33rl new at a show (unit was sold) before placing a $2000 build to order deposit. Potentially losing a couple of grand is not insane if the unit comes in and it has unexplained issues. These units come with flaws. Some, not ours, are serious. Suspension, hitch issues, brakes, electrical, and on and on. Once you stroke that final payment, that thing is YOURS and unless a miracle, only a high priced lawyer "may" get you out. Spend 2 days and go to Arizona and scope dealers inventories before you leave home. There are 9 gabillion rv's across the border from you. Get brochures and look at the specs, insulation, etc. It's a process. We changed our minds at least several times before making the choice for a 2015 33rl build.

Bought a 2014 31rk. Having some issues but the dealer said they can't find anything wrong. Hot water coming out cold water faucets and toilet. Refrigerator quits cooling. Dealer said I need a thermometer in frig. I don't need that I know when I take of drink of milk and its warm I have a problem. Karen and Bob Dougherty Any suggestion appreciated.

31RK

I am looking at a 2014 Silverback 31RK and have a few questions. The first is that since this does not have the Cedar Creek wisper quiet AC system, are the AC's noisy? Also, can you get to the refridgerator with the slides closed and does the 6 point auto leveling system make the unit stable when leveled with no movement inside when walking?

I am not sure about a/c but there is fan noise.You can not get to frig walking but can get to it by moving a chair. The camper is fairly stable. We like the openness of the living space when set up. Can have couch made into bed and have a queen mattress on the floor. If just weekender the ottoman is a pain. But to be set up for a longer period of time it is nice. Hope that hepls.
