passenger work station

The Berkshire 2017 model 38A does not come with a passenger work station table of any type.

Question: Has anyone purchased any after market table of any kind for the passenger seat?

Thanks
Joe

Ours didn't either..... we called FR and they said if we're ever in Elkhart to let them know in advance and they'd put one in. We did and they removed that unit and installed the desk. Even added two USB ports to the top of our unit! All for free!

We bought the coach new and noticed the lack of desk during our PDI, the salesman called the FR rep for us. We then communicated with him and he arranged everything. If you already have taken possession I'd contact Andy Thompson athompson@forestriverinc.com and he could get you set up in sure!

Thank you Nathan that is good to know.

the new 2017.5 has that built in again.

We took delivery of our 2017 on July 7, I wish I would have asked this question sooner. Too late to make a trip to In. now.

Thanks again for the info..

Joe

Great information. Our 2016 does not have the work station either. I was wondering if you have pictures of what it looks like after the installation was completed. Would love to see how it looks.


Thanks,

Here you go! They added 2 USB ports and 2 switches for me. One switch controls passenger side map light and the other switch controls the step cover.

We don't use ours. We stuff a wash cloth in it to keep it from rattling.

And there's my wife who has used it for all the 15,000 miles we've driven, and is a second desk when not traveling!!

O. Wasn't being critical of it. Just not something that we use. But it does have a tendency to rattle.
