Curious any other 353LS Owners out there?

We pick ours up in a week or so. But, I am noticing that finding information on this model is pretty tough. I looked up online Wildcat brochures for the 2012 and 2013 model years and it doesn't appear in any of the floor plan or model line ups.

So it has got me to thinking, how many of these models were produced? Why such a short model run, was it that unpopular, not promoted, a second thought piece mill run to clear out a frame inventory?

I'm kind of excited to have a bath and a half floor plan and it not coming in a bunk house floor plan. It seems like a great option to have a half bath on the lower level for guest and or grandkids all while leaving the master bath for the owner of the coach.

If there are others out there with this plan please check in.

You completely understand the concept we were going after on this floor plan! A half bath on the main floor separate from the private quarters in the front half of this fifth wheel truly made it unique!

The honest answer here is that it was introduced just before a major management change at Wildcat last year. Our dealers were just getting this in and starting to retail it when the plug was pulled during a shift to new leadership. The end of the 353LS floor plan was unfortunate and probably premature, but a reality nonetheless. This groundbreaking floor plan has since been duplicated by a number of competitors, mostly in the higher end fifth wheels! It's even available in some other Forest River brands now. Our own new 333MK shares a lot of characteristics of the main floor -- but of course is missing the very cool 1/2 bath on the main floor that your new Wildcat has. Front bathroom RV floor plans are still out there, just not at Wildcat...
