Glad to hear it. My goal is to consolidate the lines a bit and expand into some small chassis stuff (Sprinter). And build that Super C full wall slide everyone has been asking about. I hope they have their deposits ready.

Eventually I would love to bring back the Isata on an E450, but we'll have ton see about that.

Can't wait to see what you've done.

Now that could be interesting. Sometimes I think posting some of the contenders here would be good but there is the issue about the other manufactures seeing them.

One thing that is lacking on the Super C, for me Super C are on a M2 or larger chassis, is work space for the computer and files. We're looking at a BH and modifying the bunk area for an office space.

We don't expect to ever carry more than 4, well I guess maybe 5, so plans that dump the love seat for an entertainment center plus fireplace is something we'd look at. That would work well with the BH especially if the TV was on a lift. After all lifts these days are not that expensive and that way you get to keep the window. One can even have a keyboard pullout and not interfere with the lift.

Speaking of the 37BH, why is the bathroom door hinged toward the front? It seems that makes it harder to get into when the slides are in than if the hinge was toward the rear.

I've wondered about the 37FD plan and the angled door to the bedroom. Is it really angles or is the drawing off because of the way the end cap was drawn? Can't wait to see pictures of that design.

More battery space on the Force, DX3 and XL. You can never have enough battery space. Don't mind if they only come with the minimum amount but leave room for expansion to at least 600AH even if that means loosing the open cargo bay on the DS to get the additional one in.

Certainly something we can look at.

1. I think we could easily replicate the 3010 Sunseeker front end in the 37BH. That would give you more counter space, lift up TV. I would actually prefer a TV mounted in the over head to get out of the way....not lose counter space or the window. PLUS, if we go to swivel driver/passenger seats you gain the love seat seating positions back.

2. As for for the door...it may be an interior design thing. Normally when you open a door you don't want to be able to see the toilet from the living area. Just normal architectural practices. You could probably reverse the hinge if need be for a custom order.

That was the only reason that I thought the door faced toward the rear. Having never seen one yet I really have no idea just how hard it is to get by the door then to the bathroom.

Can't say that the 3010 floated my boat. I like the basic layout of the 37BH I was just thinking about an option for the TV, fireplace and a pull out work surface in place of the love seat. This may not be for everyone but lots may like it. Having the HDTV lift out still gives access to the window when you want it. It also has a mid entry which is nice.

Another option would be to replace the cabinet over the love seat with a piece that would support the HDTV and act as a valance for the window. This puts the HDTV in a better viewing position and it's not behind the curtain on the force when the bunk is being used. I'd put it on a swing arm so its viewable from the kitchen.

FYI, The Renagades put the HDTV up high on the side wall over the door on some models but I think it may have a taller ceiling so I don't know if it could work on the Force and DX3.

I think the door faces the bedroom so you can open it easier at night. Just my thought. I will post pics and my upgrade list next week, our rig is at the dealer having a slide motor replaced, seems to act up intermittently.

Wanted to say Hi! I'm still a ways off from getting a Dynamax DX3. Retiring in about a year and then plan to purchase. I love the concept of the SuperC and the look and features of the DX3.

I'll go back to lurking mode.....

I'd like to see one thing added to the Force and DX3 just for driver and co-driver safety and that's the steps up to the driver and passenger doors. Please take the steps from the XL and use them across the line.

Having three steps instead of two is going to be safer for anyone that has even a slightest physical deficits. I can't imagine they would be that expensive especially since there would only be one type of step which makes for more common parts which reduces the price of the parts.

So please look at making the driver and passenger steps the same across the entire line.

Brian,
I was looking at photos of the older 390XL with a full wall slide and it really looked interesting so it will be even more interesting on what any new versions would be like.

BTW, when you're putting inside photos of the coaches I'd like to request you include one shooting from the front toward the read with the slides closed.

Congrats on the promo! we love our 2016 dx3 and haven't even taken any big trips yet. well, other than the long ride home from the dealership. Heading for an overnight a couple hours away tonight to be with my dad tomorrow.

so far we love the floor plan of the BH. We just have a few things that need to be taken care of and I think we will have the perfect coach for us...
