New 2020 Redwood 4001LK - Thoughts

Hello Redwood Forum!
My husband and I just returned from the Tampa RV show where we saw the new Redwood 4001. Has anyone taken possession and if so, what do you think? Any issues so far? Very interested in your input.

Thanks so much,

The 4001LK is a unique, beautiful unit and probably one the best floor plans we've seen exercising usable floor space. Grand Design has a similar floor plan, although there are things about the RW we like better. Apparently this floor plan was a hit at the Tampa show, as I believe they sold/had orders for nearly 10 according to one of their sales staff. We don't own one yet, but here's my evaluation for whatever it's worth. A couple of things really stood out. There is a huge ergonomically designed kitchen with new SS Insignia residential auto ignition (no pilot light) gas oven/range (with 4 large burners) and SS refrig. with drawer, SS bib sink with SS strainer cover and counter space with cabinets galore. This kitchen is actually larger than some homes we've been in. There is a true 1 1/2 bath with double vanity in full bath including full sized fiberglass shower with a faux tile look and contemporary styled shower faucet. Full walk in closet off of master bath with no step up with a roomy master bedroom. What disappointed me with the 2020 Redwoods in particular were the black scuff marks left on the floor from some of the larger slides. This is something that we saw on several RW models at the Tampa show, in fact; it's a problem on many older models as well. There is now very limited carpeting at the transition areas, which we like, but instead of individual vinyl tile pieces there is linoleum throughout. Problem with that is, if there's a tear or damage in the flooring, it will make it very difficult to repair. Disappointed RW has removed the iconic red LED lights on the nose of the 5th. Also, crown molding is now 3", instead of 4". They are now using MorRyde suspension, which supposedly is an improvement over the Dexter. I know we're going to seriously take a second look although we're not in the market to make another considerable depreciative investment. lol

2020 rw-4001lk

We just took delivery of our 4001 and the previous post is spot on. While inside this RV is more like inside of a home. Having certain rooms, if you would, is so smart of the floor plan. This is our first Redwood and planning our next trip already.

Congratulations on your new "home". Please keep us posted when you take it out on its maiden voyage. I'm curious how it will do and how you are doing in it. Out of curiosity, what are you towing her with?

If all goes well, we are looking to put an order in for one at the end of the month.

If the floor plan is accurate, you can't get to the refrigerator unless the slide is open. A major negative for me. Also, the height on this one is 13'6", as with others, and the max height in Maine is 13'6". The refrigerator access is a no go for me.

We are trading our 2019 340rl for the 4001lk. Very excited to take possession of it. Probably 2-3 weeks out for delivery
