This is how the slide can roll out. I was thinking of putting 2 more castors on the outside end so that it could be pushed back in if not needed. Only problem is that when I take the screws out that hold it in place I will have to come up with a close match of caulk to fill screw holes in floor. We like the floor plan espically the kitchen and for me (a big guy) the larger shower is great. The cabinets to the right of the frige do have pull out pantry / spice drawers.
Thanks, Paul. You know, I was thinking that section was a pull-out extra cabinet/counter top like I've seen in some high-end motorhomes. I admit I'm a little disappointed that it's stationary instead. Because it's stationary, you won't be able to slide it back in when it's not needed, and it appears it would break up the feeling of spaciousness as such. (I could be wrong about that.) Plus, it could house a pull-out pantry in the end of the cabinet, though it still provides additional storage as it is. I'm glad to hear it does have some pantry space. I suppose without the big fridge, a pantry could fit in there, but I'd want to keep the nice size fridge.
I really like the showers they are using too. I haven't had the privileged of walking through the new floor plans for this year. I can't wait until my local dealer gets them in!
Walking through and having the opportunity to sit down in the floor plan is so much better than just looking at pictures and video walk-throughs online.
I think I really have my heart set on a Columbus. I've been researching RVs for a couple of years. I love that Columbus is using the foam insulation combined with astro-foil - and out of the companies that are using foam at least in the roof, this is the highest R-rating I've seen. And it's not bad that they've used some fiberglass in the floor. At least if the fiberglass in the floor gets wet, it won't be a huge hassle to have to replace it.
I really wish we were looking at buying one this year (it's getting harder and harder to wait!!
), but I want to get our TV paid off first and build up a sizable down payment. We're just an average middle class family, so it's not easy. Anyhow, that'll give us time to perhaps come upon a slightly used one for less money. Maybe...lol.
