    New 393-G Momentum model in the newest brochure

    We did a factory tour yesterday hoping to see our new 381M as it was being built, The 381 build schedule was Feb 21, 24 & 25, since they don't do the tours on Fri, and the 24th was booked full, we took a spot on the 25th, unfortunately we ended up missing it by one day. The 397TH model was on the line, all the 381's were either in PDI, outside or shipped, ours was already gone which was disappointing.
    Towards the end of the tour in the PDI area while checking VIN numbers to see if our 381 was there I noticed a triple axle "G-Class" mixed in with the 381's. I noticed it didn't have a slide out on the awning side (like a 353), but it looked as long as the 381's. Wish I would have looked at the sticker by the door.

    I had picked up a new brochure while we were waiting, it shows the 393 model with a 16' garage similar to the 353 with the 11' garage. The brochure lists it as a double axle, but that would make no sense with a 16' garage, and the one I saw was clearly a triple axle.

    Interesting, I do like that floor plan. The space is too small/tight to do an island so putting everything against the walls works better in my opinion.

    Dining room table is on the wrong side for me. I like it to be looking over my campsite. Big garage is sweet though.

    Cheers,

    Given many toy haulers are made for and intended for boondocking, the camp site is where ever you want it to be, side is not as important.

    I only boondock but I still want to look out at the awning side where I set my outside stuff and the doors are to go in and out. I understand about not having to look into your neighbors when at a park though. If there was a door and an awning on the drivers side it would work for me

    Regards,

    I disagree. I think they're intended to do both. If they were strictly intended for boondocking you wouldn't have 50 amp services, 3 A/Cs, etc. I think many, especially with the quality of the RVs finishes, intend to use a toy hauler for both. We do. If we want to go to campsite, we go to campsites. If we want to take the toys out, we take the toys out. There are many RV parks that even give you full hookups AND you get to hit the trails from the RV Park.

    Like Kevin, we prefer to have the window on the awning side. We can let the kids play out in the shade (in an RV park or boondocking) and keep an eye on them from the inside.

    Of course they are meant for both use cases, I didn't say they were strictly for boondocking. There are always other floor plans with windows facing the camp side if that is a priority.
