What would you like to see in Dynamax Sprinter?

This was sort of covered in my previous thread, but it was a little more general. I'd like to split these off into two.

One for Sprinter and one for the big trucks.

If you already posted in the other thread, I have those already...just looking to get everything in one spot.

A small MBS version designed, and marketed, as a "couples" luxury coach rather than a "sleeps six" family unit.

To attempt to achieve the "couples coach" we wanted we ordered our 2400W. The biggest change, over the standard style, is we selected the optional front entertainment center. Why? We don't need a cab over bunk, it is wasted space in our case. The other major change I really wanted, and couldn't select on the order form, is swapping out the dinette for the sofa and table option offered on the "R" version. Those options would make it much more of a couples coach with the ability to take a couple kids / grand kids now and then if desired. I don't like to "waste" space for carrying more than two people and want to maximize the unit for our usage.

Prior to ordering our W we looked closely at the Airstream Sprinter products and they are very nice. But for us they didn't have enough room for longer trips. A Dynamax MBS styled along the lines of a Forester GTS 2431S, with the R and W floor plans, designed for two, would be ideal for us...and a lot of other "baby boomer" retirees.

I think that design would give you a different market "niche" to pursue. After all someone is buying those "two some" luxury units from Airstream. Having an upscale, luxury, "two some" coach with the R and W floor plans might just put a nice dent in Airstream's Sprinter sales.

That's my $.02 worth. I hope it helps...

Hmm, Any chance of a "Special Custom Order" on our W, still somewhere on the production line, replacing the dinette with the R style sofa and table? In our specific case we do not need the additional seat belts if that is the issue.

W type floor plan with similar storage , both inside and out, of the s model. Pre-wired for solar (much easier and cheaper to do while under construction .

Yea
You might consider larger fresh water
That way with the solar and larger water supply you could boondock longer. I also like the full slide of the w but need to engineer more storage, especially if no cab over bed to use as storage.

What's the turning radius on the DX 3 or wheel cut compared to Berkshire that has a wheel cut of 55 degrees?

According to the Freightliner website, the M2 chassis which is what we use, has a 55 degree wheel cut.

I would like a MH that is ideal for boondocking -- solar, extra batteries, large inverter, large freshwater tank, macerator tiolet and pump, automatic leveling

Ideally 24 - 26' with a smart efficient layout that doesn't require slides.

I would like guide books specific to the MH model, with pictures.

I would prefer outdoor speakers to a TV. I'm more inclined to listen to soothing music and read a book, than watch TV outside the MH.

Of course luxury styling, curved upper cabinets, two tone color, fantastic fans with rain sensors, great for winter camping and hot desert camping or humid beach camping.

All at an affordable price. 😊
