No problems with water on TV. Sink is 3-4 or so feet from TV.
Gobs of counter space to prepare meals. Something I really liked about layout.
The Leprechaun comes with outside LED lights.
Getting ready to change over the inside to LED.

Great to here some feedback from someone who has the 319DSF. Glad to here the TV is not getting wet or taking up too much counter space. Thanks for feedback. DW and I really like this model.

Had to laugh about the bathroom sink - no doubt there. We have had ours for about a month now. That was the first thing we noticed...the sink is sort of dysfunctional(aka Airplane mode). By far not a show stopper.

We do enjoy ours moving from a TT. We bought the 320BH...lots of room and sleeping accommodations for the GKs - more TVs in this thing than in my house.

I meant to say sink is 3-4 inches from TV. No problems with splashes.
And I meant to sat the HW heater shut off valve is under the stove behind a remove able panel.

Thanks for the update and info. DW and I will be looking at the Leprechauns this weekend.



On another note does anyone know if you can get LED lights inside on the SunSeeker or Forester?

My comparisons

I was very interested in the 319 and compared it closely to the 3010. I found the Leprechaun to have 16 gal. propane vs 10 gal on the Sunseeker; dual pane windows can be had as an option; both slides on the same (drivers) side which frees up the patio side; dual recliners can be had; bed is 80" vs 74"; seems to have more bedroom storage, i.e. above bed, none on Sunseeker; bigger awning; can get electric fireplace option; like the lower tv location. On the flip side, Sunseeker has gas/electric water heater standard, is optional on Leprechaun; std rear ladder on Sunseeker, optional on Leprechaun; std spare tire on Sunseeker, optional on Leprechaun. These comparisons were on 2013 specs and, if I were buying today, I would go with the Coachmen. I toured both plants while at the FROG rally and construction on both seemed about the same to me. However, I have now started to wonder about a 32' plus motorhome on a 14,500gvw chassis and am leaning toward a class A. The FR3 looks like a good option at a price point, but for good build, the Newmar Baystar has me sold...but you will pay another $20K for it. Good luck!

forester comes with all LED lights standard. sunseeker does not and you cannot get them as an option even on Sunseeker.

BigLou947 - Thanks so much for your insight into the differences between the Leprechaun and SunSeeker. You brought up some great points for us to compare as we shop.

GerryM51 - Appreciate the answer to the LED lights question. I would think all will be changed over to LED lighting in the near future.

Another big difference is the Sunseeker has a fiberglass roof while the Coachman does not.

I am seriously looking at the 317SA. I like the floorplan and the ample storage. How does the 317SA handle on the road and how does it do on hills, both going up and down. Does it have auto downshift...something like an engine brake? Thanks much, Laura
