@017 Thoe ACE 27.2

We wen to the Panhandle(FL) Fall RV Show yesterday. They had a new ACE 27.2 on display. We have a 2014 ACE 27.1 and you can't believe how much extra room that additional slide makes.

Buy the tires and they might throw in a free RV.

Based solely on floorplans your 27.1 seems to have much larger closets, and the kitchen also seems to have greater usable/practical counter space.

The 27.2 with separate couch and dinette is a plus, but their sleeping areas of 40X58 and 40X60 would only work for children. As beds go they are both very short.

No doubt the extra slide helps create added space. Overall I can't say I like one better than the other. Tough choice.



P.S. -- I'm intrigued as to why Thor uses small dinettes in Ace line floorplans but won't do the same on any of the Axis/Vegas floorplans.

The Axis/Vegas engineers/designers simply don't talk to the Ace engineers/designers

Yeah, forgot their CEO has each brand/group running separately and competing with each other.


Still, if a 60-inch dinette actually works on an Ace, why not use one in a MH like yours to create space for a much larger bath. Not trying to change subjects, just a little confused by lack of design standardization.

Granted that in the 27.2 there is a larger over-cab bed that could sleep two younger adults, whereas in Axis/Vegas the overcab bed is strictly for one adult. That would mean that if traveling with another couple they could use the over-cab bed in the 27.2, but in an Axis one adult would need to use the dinette -- hence need for it being longer.

It may make sense if looked at broadly enough, but I have a hard time seeing older couples using an over-cab bed regardless of width. Climbing over a person sidewards without disturbing them is a lot tougher than it looks; even for young adults.

So if traveling with parents or older relatives in an Ace 27.2, where do they sleep? On the other hand, for a young family with young kids, the 27.2 looks like a good plan to me.
