Thank you for the pics! Very nice! Do you find it to be very functional?

We love this option since we don't have to worry about packing a larger table to take with us. It takes like 2 seconds to pull out or put back in and it is very sturdy. It is also right next to the outside entertainment area. The fridge is nice too since we don't have to take a big cooler either. We just load it up with adult beverages.

Well I showed the pictures of this unit that are on the dealers site to the wife tonight and she loves the floor plan! So we are getting excited about this unit now and may just wind up going to the dealer this weekend.
My intention wasn't to buy anything right now. I was going to personally visit the Jayco and Forester dealer to look at those units but everyone is out of inventory to look at. Except the Coachmen dealer. He has two of these in stock. One with full body paint and one without. Full body paint one has recliners the other has the couch but no kitchen. He says they can move the kitchen from the painted unit to the other one because that is on my must have list of options.
He's a bit high on his overall price compared to the others. I'm trying to get him to break out his cash price from what he's giving me for my trade.

I was and maybe still am going to order in February for delivery in April or so. That way I don't have a new motor home sitting in storage for 5 or 6 months with the clock ticking on the warranty.

So if this guy wants to move a motor home in late September in northern Minnesota he's going to have to sweeten the deal considerably.

Also this guy claims they offer a lifetime warranty. He claims because they are one of the top 50 dealers he is allowed to do this.
I'm guessing all your routine maintenance they refer to has to be done at the dealer. Sorry I'm not driving 150 miles to do an oil change.

We also loved the floor plan on this model. We looked at a couple other brands including a Thor but when we saw this one my Wife was the same way, she loved it. We also were not going to purchase until next Spring, we were just looking around since this was our very first motorhome. The dealer we worked with in central Ohio was fantastic and went above and beyond to make us feel like family with no pressure at all. I traded a classic car in on it and he gave me what I wanted for it plus I got him to come down on his price too. All in all we could not be happier with it. We are headed out tomorrow for another weekend trip. Does either of the ones you are looking at have the swivel chairs in the cab or the Bigfoot leveling system? Ours have both and we liked that as well. Good luck!!

They both have the swivel chairs but I'm not sure on the levelers. I meant to ask about that. If there are no levelers I'm going to be even harder to sell. I thought with the Leprechaun they might be standard. Does yours have the remote box for the levelers or is it a panel mounted on the interior?

Ours has a control box in the cab area with a long wire harness which allows you hold it in your hand when operating it. It is not mounted in the dash. I took some industrial strength Velcro and mounted it close to the floor tucked up under the center console between the seats. When I need it I just pull it from the Velcro and level it then put it right back. Very easy.

You can see where I mounted mine with Velcro here.

Well we ended up buying a pre-owned Jayco Seneca 2014 37FS. My wife lost confidence in the dealer when they told us it had been recalled. I think that was obviously not correct. I thank you all for the info as we really did like the 319DS.

We passed on the unit as well. No levelers for one and wife decided she wanted the couch option and not the recliners. Her thought was being able to have a bed in the living quarters without having to break down the table.
The dealer seemed pretty staunch on his price for this time of year in a long winter state.
So I just couldn't see having a new rig sitting in storage for 6 months with the warranty ticking.
So we are done looking for now and will regroup and decide if we want to order in February for spring delivery.
Or we may even stick with our current rig another year.
It's nice to have options.

Up North, when looking at a couch, bear in mind most of them are Jack Knife which are very uncomfortable to sleep on (in my opinion) The Sunseeker/Forester 3010/3011 have a hide a bed. Also, other things to consider are the fiberglass roof, Progressive Industries converter instead of the Chinese WFCO and the Atwood water heater that does not have the anode rod and has the 110 volt switch in the coach instead of at the heater.
