Do you all think the absence of an outside kitchen and or second bathroom will affect the resale value of this model? We're planning to use ours for a one-year trip, full-time, but may sell it after that.

The outside kitchen seems to be either a love it or hate it option, so I don't think that would affect you much, but it may limit some buyers. We have an outside kitchen and I love it and a second bath, but I'm still very tempted to buy one of these models. The second bath doesn't get used nearly as much, until we have a complete house full (2 families). I think you would do fine with this model, although being it's in it's first year, there may be upgrades and refinements that will make the new model more desirable. (ie: 365SAQ & 365SAQ-B)

Sometimes they come out with a half model year, but usually in the late fall. Sometimes they just make the smallest of changes, regardless, I wouldn't wait.

One dealer I talked to said they could mount a back rack on the bumper. Was he ill-informed or just blowing smoke? He also suggested mounting some kind of flat rack on the bumper for a generator, if I wanted one (though I'm not sure I want to make this thing any longer than it is. . . . )

AquaMan, how exactly did you attach a bike rack to the front hitch? What equipment are you using? Is it safe for the bikes during turns etc?

So are bumpers not what they used to be? We had a 99 a Sunnybrook TT that we mounted a two bike rack to the bumper. We used it for 14 years that way

I built a receiver hitch that is bolted to the king pin box. I also built the bike rack, because at the time there wasn't anything available like I wanted. Swagman now has a rack like I built. I have no issues at all with clearance. I could even add another couple bikes and still clear. Loading can be a trick, but I just stand on the tailgate and raise and lower the bikes on and off. Works out well. The bikes don't move around at all. PM me if you want/need more info.

Well, I've gone and put a deposit on a 371REBH, and now I'm having buyer's panic that the thing is too big. I had been considering a Wildcat that was four feet smaller. Would that make a significant difference in finding good spaces at campgrounds?
