When I had my 2011 30WR the bathroom did not have a heater vent. The heater ducting ran through the bathroom vanity. You could remove the panel in the vanity for access. I put in a T and purchased a heater vent from the RV parts store and installed it in the panel. Worked great.

Hey Jack, did you see that they redid the roofs and the front covers and the side walls on the 25wab, if there was nothing wrong why did they change them?

I have seen the new one and it really looks nice. Same concept but the front panels have the same finish as the body. Did not notice the roof. What did they do?

Also I have gone to the dark side because we needed more space. Bought a 36 foot Shockwave bumper pull. Not nearly as well built and quality as the W & P. Some times I wish I had the W & P back. Two air conditioners, Kitchen Slide, full Queen size bed 80" long instead of 74, rear raised patio, two entry doors, 5500 k generator, electric stabilizer jacks etc, were some of the improvements over the 25WAB. IMHO thought the quality of the W & P is better. Considered the 34WRS but not nearly the upgrades for the SO.

The Shockwave is built in Hemet CA and they have been very good to work with. Not so much the dealer, Cactus RV here in Tucson AZ. Lazy Days RV here is doing the few warranty things for me.

I'm just seeing this thread. Obviously, I'm a couple months late.

As much as I loved our 30WRS for our ATV races, it was NOT a great camper when the temps were down. Running the heat wide open and using space heaters, it just wasn't as comfortable as most campers are in the winter months. As for the bedroom, thick blankets and lots of snuggling.

But if I ever went back to racing, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
