While in Florida this past winter we had the carpet professionally cleaned in out 2016 3029W Windjammer. I moved the dining table so they could do a good job cleaning and afterwards my wife asked me to place the dining table in the back window where the two recliner chairs had been and put the chairs where the table had been. She loved the new floor plan!!! I said lets wait two days and see if we really like it before I screw down the table in the back. We both liked it so now we have a much larger dining area in back.
It's amazing how just a slight change of furniture location makes such an improvement in the layout. You may want to try it.

Oh one last thought- we hang out clothes in the front closet with the hanger hook facing outwards (instead of towards the walls) and we haven't had any clothes fall down after thousands of miles traveling.
Happy trails,

How does this happen?

If I'd known, I could have saved the inspection fee.

I would call that a good thing to take the wife.

Congrats on your new WJ!

Congrats! You will love the WJ. We sure like ours and it is the same floor plan. So much room in these. We went to get new tires on our 4 year old Rockwood and ended up with the WJ... And then still bought different tires for it!

On the 2016's the WJ comes with D Rated tires not the C rated.

Happy trails,

Happy trails,
My DH is going to be so thrilled when I tell him about this! Not! We just rearranged two rooms in the brick and mortar home but I love this idea. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for all the nice comments. Really looking forward to taking delivery & doing a shakedown trip at a nearby lake.

Have a question I'm sure someone can answer. Looking through the sales literature last night, the short blurb about the stereo system says DIGITAL AM/FM/DVD w /"Bluetooth" technology. Says nothing about playing CDs. DW lives for her CD collection. Does the unit play CDs? I don't think I've ever seen a DVD player that did not also play CDs.

Thanks,

Tuckerdog1

I'm not an expert. But I play one on the internet.

Yes, if it's the IRV66 or 33, it will play CD's.

The dvd player will play cd's. The radio isn't great as it has a minimum range so we play cds or Pandora via the blue tooth. The tv also plays through the stereo speakers. Ours is hooked to AU 2 and it takes a couple of seconds to sync up.
