Has anyone seen the new Challenger 37FH

Does it have a entry door awning? Just wondering.

It only mentions a power patio awning, with LED lighting...
But it sure looks like a nice rig!

(Looking at the floorplan: I'm guessing that it doesn't... )

From photos it looks like one, but it doesn't list one.

Looks like it does have an awning over the door. Nice floor plan.

That looks like it has two black/grey tanks. That might be useful if one clogs in the middle of the night. Kind of like a redundant array of toilets.

I'm thinking that it might just have something over top of the entrance...

Don't know if I like the idea of two sets of tanks to support two sets of sinks/baths.. might be a slow go when dumping...
And how much room for passage when all the slides are retracted? looks like the rear bath would be blocked & walkway width is limited throughout the coach ...
And I do not like the idea of galley & appliances in a slide...but that is just me...
YRMV.....

Our 37lx has two bathrooms and 4 tanks. My husband has them connected together with a Y. Dumping and cleaning doesn't take him much longer than it use to with our last 2 tank RV. We really love the two bathrooms, especially when we have guests, which is fairly often. The rear bathroom is not accessible with the slides closed but the mid bath is. Opening just the bedroom slide gives access to the rear bath without opening the full wall slide. Looks to be the same in the FH.

I love that 37FH floor plan and might have picked it over our 37LX had it been avaialble. All the appliances in the full wall slide does give me pause, however. I hold my breath when moving our big slide even without appliances in it.

We have two sets of tanks in our bath and half Hurricane. Like many, we use a Y connection when camped for long periods of time. For short trips, we just dump them when needed separately.

I am also skeptical of the slide with all of the appliances and kitchen. We have had experience with plumbing on a slide leaking and causing flooding.

I would have to see the coach with the slides in to see how much space there is. For many overnight stops, we prefer not to put out the main slide as it is a temporary stop just to rest and then get up and travel again, so the coach has to be accessible and usable with the slides in.
