Looked at brand new 2016 RW 38RD today in Laughlin, NV. This one had the original dark wood interior. This is a long unit at just a little over 42ft. It has 5 slide-outs which makes you wonder why they did not just connect the together the two sets of slide-outs in the rear of the coach. Perhaps the length of the coach has something to do with it. Blue led lighting in recessed area on slide-out pillars.
It had the new raised ceiling in the rear and vinyl flooring in the kitchen and the living room. Here is a summary of the things that stood out for me.
- Living room was very spacious - looked even bigger with the high ceiling, but you would definitely need a stool/ladder to get to the upper rear cabinets. TV was huge and fireplace had curved front glass. Diamond furniture was uncomfortable. Even the sales lady mentioned it when she went to sit down on the recliner. Redwood should drop the Diamond furniture and select a reputable manufacture. We sat in a Momentum by Grand Design and the furniture comfort was superior
- Goodyear G14 tires were on this unit
- Bathroom shower was a half-moon. Quite a bit smaller than our current one. The wife did like the roller system on the bottom of the shower door, as it would prevent scum buildup. The curved doors don't appear to be glass. Bathroom storage is nice
- Built-in outside TV
- 2 AC units
- Bedroom was large and had a nice window in it, but the window took up valuable storage space. The bedroom had significantly less storage than even our 2012 31sl. Room only for a queen bed. No bedside shelves. The front closet is separated into two sections 2/3 on left and 1/3 on right. Right side is set up for washer and dryer. Also noticed the over-all depth of the front closet has been reduced on all new units we looked at. This was likely done in order to give more room on the side of a king bed. No drawers under the bed. Space for huge TV. Bed lifted up and there was storage available. The mattress was much cheesier than our original.
Over-all this unit had a nice living area and kitchen but the bedroom in our opinion would not be acceptable for full-time living. The only storage option I could come up with for the bedroom would to install a small dresser in the closet which is typically reserved for the washer and dyer and a clothes rack.
