I agree with the rest of y'all. I'm out, I would rather get the sliding trays for the cargo area.

I should start a new thread but you have a RB what do you think of replacing the couch with two recliners. Other than getting rid if the dinette we can't get a longer couch. My feet hang off the end.
The two recliners would be tempting for me. I rarely have guests so don't really need the fold out bed. DW has mentioned it once or twice, but so far we've made no decision.

Boowho??

I had a Celica convertible with a burl walnut accented dash. It was very nice until it developed gold sunburst spots that grew like a cancer. The FR dash might be different material, but I will stick with the vanilla dash.

With that price I am looking at taking my love seat out and replacing it with a recliner instead.

For all you guys looking for a wood grain dash, have you considered hydrographics? There are many companies doing it now, essentially you would drop your pieces to them, the actual hydrographic process is a film that is applied in a tank of water, afterwards it gets several coats of automotive grade clear and will look like it was always that way. There are literally hundreds of patterns, wood grains, carbon fiber, metals and everything in between. It is generally relatively inexpensive as I have done most of the interior pieces in all of my cars. It's worth looking in to for a less expensive alternative.

I had already thought of something like that, but did not know if it might be available commercially. Thanks for the tip. I can see the appeal of designing my own unique graphics.

That is a great idea! I could see myself liking a carbon fiber looking dash. Might make the coach gvw seem lighter too
Please let us know if anyone has a good source for this!

I know of several local companies in the Elkhart, Goshen and Plymouth Indiana areas that do a fantastic job. You could probably send them your pieces.

Elite Motorsports in Goshen Indiana, Rev Dynamics in Plymouth Indiana, Liquid Image in Elkhart Indiana have all done work for me in the past.

Plus with the wood grain my GPS suction cup may actually stick to it!

Thanks for your interest.

The wood accent instrument panel is really sharp.

I was recently out to Elkhart and got a plant tour. Also got to see some of the new 2014 models. I thought all of them had the new flush windows, but apparently (from your photos) some of the 2014s still have the sliding style like I have on my 2013 390 RB-40L.

I'm sure you'll enjoy your new coach for years to come, but anyone thinking of getting a 2014 might want to check to see which windows they're getting.

Can I ask you, are there any plugs near the bed? I have to travel with a cpap, and it seems bedroom setups are hit or miss on having a plug AND a nightstandish shelf to place that sucker on.

plasma,
as far as I remember, there is a plug next to the bed on the drivers side facing toward the front of the coach. There is also small 'night stand' on either side of the bed. I think that there is also a plug on the drivers side toward the rear of the coach next to the bed.

On the 2011 RB390 there is a 110 outlet in the bed base on both sides. Very handy. I didn't find them until someone on here mentioned them.
