Love both those indoor storage. If I only had a place I could do that I would. I was able to park on the front yard when we first got it to add a couple things.

His feels cheap and is kinda plain inside.
The vent fans are those little 4" after thought fans.



Really I watched their video about how they put quality in every trailer? I guess they just can't get the same prices as FR to keep costs down and put in better fans then that? I have the fantastic fans in my Roo, would not complain as much bc Roo is cheaper then GDesigns

Flip over to do the wipe off in the same manner. It's covered with a 5" x 9" gauze pad and secured with a tie wrap. Works awesome!. EMT might work for the pole, PVC, meh... you need the thing to be ridgid to push-pull back and forth and control it under the seal
Okay, that's pretty nifty. Add this to the project list!

Yeah I don't know what it is but when I walk into his GD I get the feeling of ho hum.

Appears to be built good but plain.

Yes, PLAIN is exactly the word. The dark leathery look put off my DW some. A somewhat male decorating approach. The cheap fan also is a put off. 3 year warranty is a plus.

I had been negotiating for weeks on buying a 2015 GD and was ready to buy. Went to the Ft. Worth RV show to meet the rep as one last step before writing a check. There we happened to walk by and look inside the Wildcat 295rsx. Couldnt believe all the upgrades and features that just made my GD decision seem wrong. Ordered the Wildcat at the show and took delivery of the first 2016 off the line. 12000 tow miles and 112 camp nights later, I am glad I stumbled on the 'cat.
