My favorite living area floorplan was in the 2003/4 27RK Wildcat we had many years ago. The open floorplan made the living area feel larger than it was. That open floorplan and decent kitchen counter space is why we bought our new CC Silverback 29RL.

Have you looked at the new 293REX? It's our improved version of the 25RL concept...

Sorry Chris it is a little to long for my carport and what I like would still have to be under 30 ft. Thanks anyway but I did look at that unit not interested in the outside kitchen either. Just me and the wife so really just need something small and the 25RL I fits us OK. One question is it possible to Retrofit the slamlatch doors on Mine Might be intrested in doing that over the doors it has now it would make the passthru compartment more insulated and a little more secure.

Thanks onetonford

chris as I have mentioned in the past on one of your posts you do not have a floor plan we liked at all . we did love the wildcat 5ers we looked at but not the floor plans in general .
the floor plan we bought from sabre was what we were hoping to find in a wildcat .
flagstaff had a similar floor plan that we liked but no outside kitchen . I believe a 8528bhws ?

32QBBS. Not just because I have one but it meets our needs and beyond. The entertainment center is in the correct location, the toilet is seperate from the shower, the bunks and the fact they are up front, hydraulics gear, and the large basement. The only complaint from the wife is counter space.

312bhx-ok would be great if it had a bunk room slide out on the opposite site of the outdoor kitchen.

really like our wildcat 31TS, lots of floor space, intertainment center is great location, only thing that I would like diffrent is seperate control of each slide. the floor plan that superceds my 31TS has a better kitchen layout however no major complaints here.

We are interested in the 282RKX. We have a 2005 Rockwood with a similar floor plan but like the larger tanks. We like the rear kitchen due to the fact that in a fifth wheel this size it allows for more counter space. It also has the two nightstands instead of the closet on the one side. The weight is also a consideration as I like a little buffer on the weight for the truck I pull with. We are just waiting to find one so we can actually see it in person.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Don't have a favorite floorplan. I might make that decision if Wildcat didn't use a Lippert frame for their fiver.
