The reason I ask is because the 353 LS is over 39 feet long with three slideouts, a single 15k air conditioner wouldn't cut the mustard during the summer in my neck woods.
Valid discussion points on both topics...

We got requests from consumers who full-time and also entertain guests (family and friends), but wanted the private area to stay private, thus the 1/2 bath. If not included, your guests would be walking through the large bedroom every time. The 1/2 bath on the main floor does feature a huge storage cabinet. We've also talked about the option of making it a walk-in pantry.

50 AMP service is available on all Wildcat models and is a forced option on both the 353LS and the 344QB (our biggest floor plans). Our 50 AMP service option also includes wiring prep for the 2nd AC unit.

Thanks for the information Wildcat Chris. When I purchased my Wildcat in 2007, 50 amp wasn't an option. The mandatory 50 amp option on the new longer units is a smart idea.

The 32RK is the Sterling Edition version of the popular rear kitchen Wildcat 322RK.

Obviously, the most striking difference in the Sterling Edition upgrade is the high-gloss exterior in the "Sterling Silver" color. It also affects the weight the most (although the standard Corian® countertop, Serta® mattress, and free-standing table and chairs also add some weight).

Here's a list of the Sterling Edition Upgrades (standards built into the package):
  • "Sterling Silver" High-Gloss Gel Coat Fiberglass Exterior
  • New Aerodynamic Gel-coated Fiberglass Front Cap with Built-In LED Docking Lights (dual mode, blue and white)
  • Custom Automotive-grade Exterior Graphics Package
  • Color-matched Decorative Hitch Cover
  • Serta® Trump™ Home Luxury Mattress (Residential Queen, 60" x 80")
  • Design Collection™ Corian® Solid Surface Countertop (Kitchen) with Upgraded Pull-out Sprayer Faucet and Undermounted Sink
  • Electric Fireplace (not Available in 32QB)
  • Hardwood Free Standing Table (with Pull-out Leaf) and 4 Chairs (with Under Seat Storage)
  • 15K BTU Ducted Roof Air Conditioner
  • 2nd Air Conditioner Bedroom Prep (Wired)
  • 50 AMP Service with Detachable Cord
  • Propane Quick Connect

Hope this helps!

Chris, i've seen 32RKs with different fireplace setups in the bedroom.
one has the fireplace with faux brick and a shelf.
another has the fireplace higher and there's a cabinet around it, with drawers and doors.
is this a model year difference?

That change came when we switched to the new cap design last fall for our dealer expo (typically the time when we show new floor plans and features). We wanted to take advantage of the extra space we gained in our "angled bed" bedroom suite (available on 322RK/32RK, 302RL/30RL, 344QB/34QB) and more storage is always a plus!

This is the new layout with fireplace above storage (Sterling Edition shown -- the fireplace is a popular option for Wildcat):

Chris, any pics of the drawers and doors open, to get an idea of how big the spaces are? or dimensions of the drawers and spaces on the sides of the fireplace.

there aren't any of the 32RKs or 322RKs anywhere near me. only an older 322RK with the older swivel rockers and the old style fireplace.

Thumbs up New GoRVing commercial features a Sterling Edition

Take a look at the new GoRVing commercial featuring a Wildcat Sterling Edition:
Go RVing TV Commercial - Comforts - YouTube

I really think the new ads look great and represent RVing well!

I'll try to get those dimensions for you! They are the same size as our pot/pan drawers -- the biggest we've ever had in a bedroom.
