Hemisphere 356QB

I was hoping to see some modifications others have dome with this camper. We are trading in our 2018 Heartland Prowler 32LX for a 2019 Forest River Salem Hemisphere 356QB in hopes to have something that will last many years as our family continues to grow. A couple of the changes I'm interested in seeing the most is the closet in the master and the entertainment center in the bunkhouse. We tried to get the dealership to order us one slightly different, but they told us it would cost at least 3.5k more and we already are at the top of our budget with this model.

This is what the entertainment center looks like in the bunk house, just hoping to see some ideas for where the ladder is:

Are you looking to take the ladder out and replace it with something else? My son still uses the ladder to get in and out of the bed so mine is still there. The only modification I have done to the front closet is actually fixing it(something that the dealer couldnít do in 3 tries) so that it would not fly open in travel and destroy the face trim at the ends of the doors. We liked the setup pretty well so havenít changed much. The one thing that I did change that I love is putting a fridge with an ice maker in the outdoor kitchen. Have only got one trip with the new fridge but love it. Was a tight fit but it works. Had to modify the gas shock mounts that hold the door up but it works.

Oh one thing I just thought of. Make sure that the power port where your cord plugs in is sealed to the wall well. Just found that mine has been leaking and have some rot in the wall under it. Luckily it is only about 6-8 inches wide so I am able to fix it pretty easy. Hopefully it will cause any issues above it.

That's a little different than the one we're picking up. Does anyone know the total grey tank capacity on these 356qb's I see 57 gallon and 87 gallon listed? Hopefully 87 as 57 isn't much.

For the tanks, crawl underneath and if you can see the tanks, you can get a model number and look them up. My 27DBK Salem has 3 tanks, galley, grey and black. It was advertised as if they were different capacities, but they're all the same tank, coming in at 33 gals each.
