A question for owners of 2511s

DW and I are looking at the 2511s. Really like the floorplan but would like to get it with the optional theater seating instead of the dinette. One thing is puzzling me though. The FR site shows the theater seating option but without the fridge in the slideout.
Anybody have this model with the theater seating? Do they put the fridge somewhere else or just use smaller seats?

Thanks,
Shinbone

The dinette is replaced by the theater seats or the hide-a-bed. The fridge stays where it's at.

Look at the location of the window on all 3 options. You'll see all 3 are only as wide as the dinette (67").

The dinette on this one shows as 44" and the optional slideouts do not show the fridge.

I guess they aren't showing the entire slideout on the options.

44" is the length of the table, not the width of the dinette.

So the dinette is 67" from the outside of the seat backs and the seats and table are 44" from the wall to the aisle.

When folded down, the dinette will make a 67" x 44" bed.

Great. Thank you very much.

Hello, We have the 2511s. As far as I can tell it's the full theater seats with center storage and fridge in the slide, even a couple inches between seats and slide wall and fridge. Love all the storage. First time out last weekend.

That's good to know. Thank you. Are the seats comfortable? We haven't been able to find one at a local dealer to try them out in-person. We'll probably have to order one.

Does anyone have the theatre seating in the 2511S? Do the theatre seats recline back? We have seen photos but can't tell if there is room behind the recliners for them to lean back.

We picked up our new Flagstaff 25FBLS (Rockwood2511) a few weeks ago. Yes the theater seats have a handle to extend the footrest and they also recline back. They do not get completely flat but I think I could take a good nap in them!

Comfortable in my opinion, think I could sleep in it. Came with heat, massage , 4 cup holders and outlet with USB charger under the counsel top. Also 2 small pivot tables ( removable ) that fit into arm sockets. A cheesy drawer below, works to hold tables. Reclines pretty far. Drawback is window behind is hard to open when seats are upright. Hope this gives you an idea.

Very cool. Thanks. This is looking like a very attractive option.
