Noticed Some Running Changes In The 2016 2400W

We were at our local dealer, Three Way Campers, picking up a few things to de-winterize our "W" and saw a new Sunseeker 2400W sitting on the lot. We weren't in a hurry so we wandered over and checked it out.

The first thing we noticed was there is now separate Jensen unit for the "house" radio and TV / DVD system. That was a very good idea as the Jensen unit we have in our dash is overwhelmed trying to do too many things. But that change cost most of the nice cabinet over the entry door we have so it is a trade off. But still one I'd gladly take...

The second was the folding privacy curtain for the bedroom is no longer being installed. It is much easier to access the bathroom without that stupid folding curtain in the way. Another good idea IMHO...ours will be coming out soon.

The third one was now the interior colors have changed and now the dinette seating is all "ultra leather" or whatever its called. I'm glad we have an early production version with the "old" cloth seat backs in the dinette. I'm not a fan of the ultra leather as it is hot and uncomfortable when compared to cloth.

Last the exhaust pipe for the generator has been rerouted and cleaned up as well. It isn't as obvious as it is on our "W". That may be because we have the formerly optional diesel generator.

So what else has changed Josh?

I know the Jensen JWM6A (coach/house stereo) was a rolling change across the whole range of floor plans as was the interior upholstery. Both were welcome surprises when we took delivery of our "S" floorplan last fall. Interestingly our coach hood is white (we have full body paint, indigo) while every other one I've seen has a darker hood color. I like ours, but I wonder if the darker hood has some purpose.

Hmm, we have full body paint as well. Our hood is a sand / tan color that ties in to the overall paint scheme.

On some of the paint schemes, the front hood area was white. Some people didn't like all that white (when they paid for full body paint) so we added the front hood paint shortly before I left, just to give it a little more paint.

So no real purpose other than styling.

Our new 2401W just arrived from the factory with the special edition paint we wanted and will be doing a PDI shortly.

I was at the Philly RV show this week and looked at the 2016 Forester 2401W. I have a 2016 Solera 24W that was built in May timeline last year. Looks like there is an added Zamp solar input to the left of the door for portable solar panels. Pretty cool option. I am going to look at adding that to mine. Also noticed the outdoor lamp next to door changed to a white LED from the amber yellow. Though I like the amber.

Yes, a Zamp connection has been added.

I like your "mini cap". That is another nice addition IMHO. If that had been offered when we ordered ours I'd have probably went with it. We have the optional entertainment center, instead of the bunk, which does provide a lot of storage space and a larger TV.

Thank you. It has what FR calls a Trekker cap. Although equipped with the entertainment center, storage is limited.

That cap came a couple months after you were through the factory Wayne.

  • Cab over safety net
  • Jensen Radio
  • Removable Valances
  • All leather dinette
  • Slow rise black out shades
  • Hellwig sway bar
  • Trekker front cap
  • Backsplash behind the bathroom sink
  • Maxx Air fan
  • Pre-wired for a zamp solar panel
  • New tail lights
I can think if these off the top of my head but I'm sure I'm missing things.
