Questions on MBS series

I am looking at the 2401R and 2401W.
1. Does either dinette convert into a bed? What advantage does one have over the other?
2. Looks like neither plan give you a good view of the tv. Which do you like best?
3. Does the engine A/C keep the cab cool enough in 100 degree weather or do you have to run the RV A/C?
4. Since the propane tank is so small where can we carry an extra?
5. Can you delete the generator, and if so will two Honda EU2000's and my Berg tank fit in that compartment?
6. What are the R values of the coaches sides, roof and floor?
7. If you sleep in the bunk above the cab is it hot up there? (does the rv have ductwork?)

sorry for all of the questions.

1) They both convert into a bed. It just depends on the style you want to sit in. There is more room with the U dinette but you can't sit directly across from each other.
2) I'll let someone else hit this question.
3) You would probably need to turn on the RV A/C. If you were just sitting in the cab it should keep you cool but it would take a while and a lot of work to keep your whole unit cool.
4)There are plenty of compartments to store your extra tank but the one on board should last a little over 2 days.
5)That's a special order request you would need to talk to your dealer and territory rep about.
6)We have an R value of 9.5
7) We run a duct over the cab so sleeping up there is comfortable.

In the 2401W can the U dinette table and pole be completely removed to be used like a couch?

Thanks

Yes it can be. If you wanted you could even set the table on the ledges like you were setting the bed up, leave the two side pieces in and use it as a love seat.

What is the width of the dinette? Is the width the same for both units?

Thanks again

We just picked up our "W" today and here are my observations on a couple of your questions.

2. The view of the front television, while seated at the dinette, is very good in the 2400W. (We have the optional entertainment center with the larger screen TV but it is in about the same location as the smaller TV in the bunk version.) The view of the second television in the bedroom is excellent.

3. It was 90F and raining heavily today in Atlanta. The cab A/C kept the cab area quite comfortable.

4. Rather than carry more LP another possible solution is to order the optional QD3200 diesel generator. It avoids the shorter run time issues with the LP3600.

I have had motorhomes with both diesel and propane generators. Believe me, although they both work great, continually having to fill the propane tank is a real pain in the butte. Utilizing the diesel in the motorhome tank to run the generator is a much more tolerable situation. The propane generator will be quite a bit less money, however, over the long run, the extra money for the diesel gen set is money well spent!!
