Has anyone gone with the quartz options? Are they offered in different colors?

Picked our 36rl up earlier this month. Came with quartz countertops. We weren't aware they were an option, didn't special order them. Factory rep says they're standard now. I'm not aware of any choices as far a s color goes. What we have is a beige, gold, brown, cream sort of mix -- very pretty with our coastal trail decor -- seems like it would be equally attractive with either of the other 2 decor choices. Most people think it's granite. Stove and sink covers are quite heavy -- my factory rep says there are lighter weight plastic covers available, but I haven't had him send them yet -- I'm not sure what color they are, if they'll match the quartz, etc. They've also changed the flooring from seamless vinyl or whatever to tiles (Rep told me who makes them but was getting so much info during pdi I can't remember who it is says if one or 2 are damaaged, the damaged tile(s) can be removed and replaced instead of patching or replacing the whole floor). Look like real stone tiles -- seams are all but invisible. Also in our unit (don't know what they've done in other floorplans), the former bedroom 6 drawer, 4 cabinets + tv on top has been changed to 4 drawers, 2 cabinets + tv and full height "armoire" -- all shelves just room on top for dvd or blueray player or satellite box. Lost the "laundry chute" but way more storage!

Congrats, would love to see a picture of the new layout in the bedroom. Nice to see Redwood updating and continuing to improve their product.

Love to see a picture too.

Is your bedroom door hinged on the bathroom wall or the laundry room wall? They were changing some over while we were touring the factory during the rally. You see both on the '13RLs. Guess it dependson what peoplerequested when ordering. Like anything else, some people love the new door position andsome people don't. I liked the look because the hallway looked more open and easier to use the washer and dryer. The downside is that the bedroom door is longer than the bathroom wall and it protrudesinto the bedroom more.

Our friends with the slide in slide has the door hinged on the bathroom side wall, it makes it a little tough to walk into the bedroom around the bed. Would not work with a king bed in there, tight enough with the slide in slide and queen, in my opinion.

I'm sure it does, but it's also tough to do a load of wash, unload into a basket, walk into the bedroom, close the bedroom door, open the other laundryroom door and load the dryer.Ugh.... It's a trade off. If you don't plan on ordering or install the W/D, you might like thestandard location better.

Our RE arrived yesterday. The dealer asked us to stop by last night to take a look. We too were pleasantly surprised by the quartz countertops and the new bedroom dresser/armoire setup. We also have a second sink and vanity in the bedroom next to the dresser drawers that we were not expecting. Didn't notice the new flooring, but did notice new light fixtures over the kitchen island (they're okay).

Dealer will have it for another week to finish the PDI and to install the sattellite system, AGM batteries (4), power inverter (2000W), vent covers, solar panels (90W), inline surge protector and a strut on the entry door.

I'll be by the dealership this weekend and will take a few pictures of the bedroom setup to post here.

Cannot wait to get our hands on it and hit the road.

5th Time:

Our rl came through with the bedroom door hinged on the bathroom wall, opening into the bedroom. We spent a lot of time in rl's at various dealers trying to figure out which would be better (for the reasons mentioned above). Kept going back & forth about whether it would be better to have less room between the open door and the bed (queen)-- wouldn't work with a king -- or be inconvenienced when doing laundry. We figured closing up the bedroom walkway every day, often several times a day, would be more annoying than dealing with the laundry a couple of times a week.We didn't specify (expected it to be hinged on the w/d wall between the doors and our unit came through with the door hinged to the bathroom wall. Factory rep told us this is standard on the '13's. Too many complaints about doing laundry with the door hinged on the w/d side. It worked out fine when we were staying in it and bringing it home (almost 2 weeks) -- it worked out for the best. We do cut through the bathroom a lot when getting to the dresser and closet, especially when carrying something, for more room.

I think that is a mid-year change. There are many photos of '13RLs on dealer sites. Most of them have door on W/D wall. You lucked out.
