You are very welcome my friend. For additional stability of your couch coat go ahead and place the extra coat (if you got the 2 for one package) on the couch...it stops the slipping and sliding.

The 29M is very roomy for its size, drives nice, and is very comfortable. We traded down from a Tuscany due to storage problems after our move to Texas and we were concerned about losing all the room we had before. After a couple of trips we decided the 29M had plenty of room for us and couldn't be happier!!!

We have the 50 amp option, dual AC (which we need for Texas summer), power drivers seat, pretty much all the options, Dino and Jerry's coachs are the same.
SD...you and I have the same model, Halfprice has the Hurricane w/o the paint and 50Amp option

My mistake, thought Jerry had the 50 amp on his coach also.

Dino, due to the cabinet shape and drain location under our sink I'm not sure the sliding waste basket would fit. Lowes and Home Depot both carry the sliding wastebasket, get the measurements from one of the boxes first to make sure it will fit. They also carry a big selection of the wire baskets but I would measure that first too. Not much room under our sinks to do very much.

Thanks guys,

That's the model we are looking I was just a little concerned about a full wall slide having issues. They said that has been corrected with the 3 track system and bigger motors. The 29M is essentially only 3' longer than my Vegas but seems to be a huge difference inside. Seems like the only hurdle now is hammering out the price with the dealer. Additionally we love our Vegas and I did so many upgrades in 6 months I know I will be taking a beating but the dw wants something bigger.

Yes I only have 30 amp and one a/c. The a/c will be put to the test this year so if we need another one I'll add it to the bedroom ceiling. Was going to do it before this summer but Maria said to wait to see if the one a/c can do the job. I'll do the install myself and a new a/c unit runs a round $700.


And SD I think Dino has the lead in mods. I'm just coping him and trying to keep up.

You guys are lucky that you can do this! I have three drawers under the think, and no doors at all in the lower cabinets, because I have the oven, and underneath the oven is the furnace return air intake. My kitchen area has a corner setup, and a gigantic empty space in the corner that I cannot utilize at all, because I cannot access this space.|I would appreciate it a lot, if somebody here has an idea, how I could utilize this fast emptiness (almost 2.5 by 2.5 feet)

I installed a ceiling fan in the bedroom, and found it does a pretty good job in keeping me comfortable.

Without looking to see how everything is arranged, this is just an idea. Could you fit a revolving lazy susan in that area, if so could you maybe access it from under the sink? Might not be convenient, but might work.

Day/Night Shades in My 29M

Another Mod bites the dust my friends. I got real tired of those nasty curtains in the cockpit so I gave it some thought and this is what I came up with. since the overhead bunk posed a problem with the shades covering the entire side window, I covered as much as I could and used Reflectix for the rest. When not in use, I place the Reflectix cutouts on the mattress in the overhead bunk...The first pic shows the solar shade, the second shows the night shade and the third shows the nightshade with the Reflectix insert!

What do you think?

Great thanks for the response.
