Last week we did the deal on a new 2014 Wildcat 293 REX (light model). This was the 1st RV we had a liking for and after looking at around 25+ at an RV show we started coming back to this one. After a 2nd look we worked out a deal.
The things we love
> ceiling fan
> Corian counters
> big back window
> lots of windows (12)
> drop down tv behind fireplace
> plus the outside kitchen with fridge, tv, stove & grill.
> We like the fact that we can access the entire kitchen, bath & bedroom with the 3 slides in, great for a break on the road or overnighting in a truck stop.
> length, 31'9" - we want to keep it smaller
> kitchen pantry
> booth dinette - for additional storage
A couple things we didn't like is the:
> placement of outdoor speakers. They are in the slide & not under the awning - who sits over there???
> placement of the silverware drawer. Too low.
there goes my back
Some things I would change are:
> I would have liked the bed to be on the slide as opposed to the wardrobe. Then a wardrobe across the front would have provided more storage & a w/d hookup ( not that I want one ).
> Open Range uses 3 - 20 lb. propane tanks instead of 2 - 30's. In an emergency you can exchange them at many different places. I like that idea.
As I said we just bought the 5v'er and haven't used it yet and now have to wait until spring. And now we need to shop for a newer pre-owned truck to tow it. We hope to be FT'ing in it by spring of 2016!
See you 'round the campfire.
