2. Super C. This one can be anything. We're looking at new floor plans, new chassis possibilities, etc. So any feedback is greatly appreciate.

A broad range I know, but its always nice to get a feel for things during the design stages.

Super C (3051) -- full slide with additional slide on passenger side bedroom closets; 50 amp service with reel; recliners vs sofa; stackable, vented w/d; dual a/c; mcd shades; decent looking rims. Beefy diesel -- not mediocre.

The Isata 5 gets close. Not the full wall slide, but with this being a bigger unit we weren't sure we wanted to do a full wall.

50 amp service. Dual air
Ram 5500 aluminum wheels
Cummins diesel

Washer/Dryer we haven't worked in yet due to weight. To build a 36' unit as a Super C you only have 19,000lbs. While that seems like a lot more than a Ford's 14,500lbs. You lose a lot of that just for chassis weight. 2nd floor plan will be coming shortly.

Sounds good. Any possibility of having dual fuel fill locations?

It has dual tanks, so there are dual fuel locations. But the fuel equalization only works with the engine running...so not sure if that is what you are looking for.

Will there be any increased towing capacity or will the increased chassis weight suck up any potential increase in hitch capacity?

10k hitch is standard.

Good to know -- and nice having fuel fill on either side. Now work a w/d in there and we're sold!
