I have been shopping the 23IKSS for the last two+ years. This year has had the most impact to the floor plan. I didn't really like how they made the island smaller, (2014) but understand some of the reported reasons.
I like the new bathrooms with shower doors on the shower.
I am sure the slide out flip was done, because it was common with another model. Why build two different layouts on that size of side out? Note the large window follows the table. At first I don't like the flip as it limits turtling, but might be a better sleeping location. I will wait to see how it works in person.
I like the pantry, as it provides storage for heavy things like can goods, but the glass door?
The entertainment center, not sure about that. 1. They put the main control panel at my sons level? 2. The TV provides for viewing in the kitchen, but it's strange to have the TV blocking the door into the RV? 3. Nice to have some privacy for the front bunk and extra storage for kid toys.
With the floor plan changed I adjusted the list of first mods:
1. Replace pantry door with a plain slab door to get ride of the glass. This will provide additional storage options to hang things on the inside of the door.
2. Buy another cabinet door to install over the main control panel. Will need to find a suitable latch to prevent access by my son.
