Minimal carpet silk includes carpet on the sides of the bed as long as the bed is on a slide. Air bed is no longer coming in them, it's now a regular sleeper sofa and not a jack knife. Also the medicine cabinet now has the storage shelf on the top instead of the bottom so the vertically challenged don't need to stand on a zoo to look in the mirror.

The lights over the bed and couch swivel and can be pointed toward your book so there is no glare in your eyes.

billb800si I am in the same boat as OP . But in the rockwood 8310SS my dealer has one on order so we cant get a feel for the living room . Did you get to see it with slides open? If so how did the size of the living room feel as far as watching tv from the chairs and the couch we really like everything else and from the pictures and videos cant really tell about room in there. Also if anybody else has this model what are your thoughts thanks .

FYI, I just got confirmation from Flagstaff factory rep that all the improvements to the Rockwood line (7cf inside fridge, memory foam trifold couch, and 40" led tv) are also included on the Flagstaffs. that was my assumption since they come off the same assembly line, but nice to get confirmation on it. Good news for me since my dealer of choice carries Flagstaff.

we have a Salem 27RKSS now which is essentially the same kitchen and living room. Watching TV from the chairs and couch is not an issue. The chair near the door does end up being at a fair angle to the tv but you can still see it fine. as far as room in the living room, we have entertained 4 people at a time and it's fine for that. Not nearly as much room as the units with opposing slides (rear entertainment and rear lounge, etc) but it is sufficient. the weight penalty of the extra slide plus our unique situation of camping in a couple places where it would be really tight to deploy the opposing slide helped make the 831rkss/8310SS be the best choice for us right now, but our circumstances are definitely unique I would guess to anyone else on here...

Maybe not so unique we struggle with the same situations we would love to get the opposing slides except where we park our RV at home there is not enough room to open the curb side slide fully. also a few places we camp wouldn't work so well. compromise compromise !! To many choices I guess. We love our 29RLS but were wanting the bedroom slide bad.

congrats ! I talked to my salesman the other day, he sent me the options list for the 831rkbss, I went thru it and checked everything I wanted, and he came back with a price and my trade in. Would take a beating on my trade but I guess that is to be expected. I could easily scratch off a few things on the options list and save 1500-2000. Wife and I are swinging by the dealer on the 10th to see the flagstaffs in person even tho they don't have this floorplan in stock they have several others so we can get a feel for the flagstaff line. Not sure whether it'll happen or not but the wife is warming to the idea...
