Is it possible to post a close-up pic of how the factory rack attaches to the frame? My 312BHX didn't come with a bike rack but has the bumper spaced away from the body and looks to be pre-drilled for a rack. This might be something I can add.

Like how you are embracing the new FSU logo!

I did not order the bike rack because I just could not figure out how four bikes would attach to the platform and the one pole? I'm going to fit them inside or maybe get one of the king pin mounts.

I don't understand all the hate for the new logo. I like it!

I also like the new logo.....

I have the bike rack and it's really more of a cargo rack. We've put 4 bikes on it before. We use the post as a leaning post and then we just strap the bikes to the post and the frame with a cargo strap and then a use a cable lock for security. Works ok I guess....

You know folks don't like change, guess that's it. Trying to justify $90 for a new jersey, tough!

Guess we just hijacked this thread - SORRY!

I feel that the Wildcat has an edge because of the larger holding tanks, larger hot water tank and the U shaped dinette.

My question is: Why are there so many different configurations for the bunk house?

Here, in western Canada, I have seen the

1) 3 bunks + outdoor kitchen (1 + 2)
2) 4 bunks + outdoor kitchen (1 + 3)
3) 4 bunks and no outdoor kitchen (2 + 2)

To me it looks as if the wardrobe is bigger on (1) and (3) compared to (2). Also the layout of the outside kitchen is different, (1) has the pullout stove where (2) has the jackknife stove.

Do you or can you order these configurations? We like the layout of the 279BH but prefer the features on the Wildcat.

Also over the years, I have noticed over the change from hinged doors to pocket doors. Can you specify one over the other too?

Thanks
The 312BHX has been a best-selling Wildcat bunkhouse for years, but it has been modified and enhanced based on consumer feedback over time. Most of the variations you note are differences between both model year changes and the Elkhart, IN, build (Wildcat) VS. the Dallas, OR, build (Wildcat Maxx) which supplies dealers west of the Rockies, including Canada. If you know exactly which Wildcat dealer you're going to be purchasing from, they can guide you through exactly what options are available. Western dealers ARE able to order the Elkhart units!

Going to pick up next week, can you give me a good estimate on total height? AC unit and all. Want to make sure I'm aware of my clearance factor. Shouldn't be a problem as it's 90% Interstate. But it doesn't hurt to know!

I'll be climbing on the roof this evening to install a couple of Maxxair vent covers. I'll measure it while I'm up there. I need to know the height too.

Thanks, it says 12'6" online, but I would imagine the AC adds a couple of feet? I don't want to be THAT guy that tries to go under the bridge and the AC unit gets torn off
