New 231KSS Inperson Impression

Finally got to see the new 231KSS floor plan in person at an RV show. Very impressive. I had previously only seen in a brochure and I was very happy I had the 2015 model. Really pays to see the real thing.
What the new one has: nice shelf in the rear bunk, actual shower doors (curved) and a somewhat larger shower. I'm 6'1" and 230 so its still soap on a rope for me - no bending over with the doors closed.
The pantry (where the entertainment center used to be) is not as intrusive as I had thought; looks to be an ideal size. The TV looks to be a 32" where mine is 24". I thought the new tv area would mean the tv would block the doorway when extended. Not the case; plenty of room to enter/exit.
I still don't see why they switched the dinette and sofa. My dinette is opposite the island leaving the island as a convenient serving area to the dinette. I think the tv viewing area is a little better in the 2015, but not as much as I had previously thought.
Was also excited to see the all new 23WS.....there were none

X2. The old 23IKSS is much better.

Yeah, I had hoped to see the 2016 today when I went to pickup the slideout hose bracket again (none there as promised). They had only the 2015.5. Told me they'd call when they get their 2016s.

I like the 2015 23ikss layout myself and I have one of those so it is all personal preference although T the bigger shower with doors would be nice but we manage anyway.

Good Luck
