I have been away from the forum for awhile - Afghanistan and other assorted Navy duties have kept me busy. We are now ready to pull the trigger on trading our 08 32 SB for the '14 335SS Provincial. It was a tossup with a 29RE Silverback - but I think we are ready to take the plunge. Thoughts anyone??????

Thanks for serving in the Armed forces!
We own a2012 CF335SS - like the layout. Wife really likes the island. We like the "openness" of the unit. Plenty of storage for us. The 2012 had a set of cabinets over the sofa too. Only thing we don't like is the Sofa bed is only sized for one person. </span>

We were camping in Myrtle beach for 2 weeks and we swapped the location of the chairs and sofa. Put furniture pads under the sofa to make it easier to move around. Had to put them back in their original location before we put the slides in - slides would not go past the sofa.</span>

It cool out when we were at Myrtle Beach and we used the fireplace to keep the chill off. Glad we got that option.

The weight of our unit leaving the factory was 10,014 lbs dry (all tanks empty).

We looked at other manufactures with a similar layout - we liked the extra room but not the length of the other units. We did not want to go any longer in length - makes it too hard to get into many of the state parks we like to visit in New York.

Thanks for the replies - and your appreciation of my service - it is an honour for all of us. My specific question concerns a second A/C. Ours does not come with a bedroom unit - is it necessary for the warmer climates? We intend on coming south of the border soon.

We been out twice now in our 335ss and love it. The sofa bed is really a joke, but other than that the features it has is great. The new high angled slide over the sofa, tables and chairs gives the big feeling to the inside. It is tough to get the recliners back into the down position, although I think doing so will help my stomach muscles.lol

I would say a definite "yes" on the 2nd AC. After spending that much on the rig to begin with, the little extra a 2nd AC is going to cost you will be minimal, and well worth it when you come south.

A couple other things to think about with the 2nd A/C unit. You are raising the over all height of the rig when you add that 2nd A/C up front. Also, if you are planning on running both A/C units at the same time you have to make sure you are staying in a campground that offers 50amp service. I personally would get it just to be sure the rig stays cool. I hate trying to sleep when it's hot.

We put in a fantastic fan instead of a second AC unit. If we spend allot of time down south we may put it in later. The fan is multiple speed, blows in or out and has a thermostat.

We put covers on our fan events Bathroom and bedroom) and the one over the bedroom added height to the unit. Our exterior height is closer to 13'4" now.

We camp allot at NY State Parks in the summer and they only have 30 amp service so would not be able to use the second air. All RV parks do have 50 amp service though and the second AC could be used.

You can use 2 AC units on a 30 amp pedestal if you add a few things with the second AC install. When we bought our unit I had it done and at the time I think it cost about $250 extra. It requires and auto switch over box, an external marine 110v plug and a heavy duty 25' extension cord.

Darrell,
Congrats on the new unit. And the wet weather cannot end soon enough. I'm here in Lisbon, CT and it has rained since the 2nd day we got here...4 straight days...but nicer weather coming soon...we hope. Keep us posted on how the unit works for you.

Travel well,
Jim
