2. Is the awning lighted? I swear at the show it had led's on it like other models but now I can't be sure. When I asked a salesperson today they told me "No".
We got our 2014 back in June from a local General RV and also in Michigan down by DTE. Happy to answer any questions.
1. No ducted AC. We took it out this summer, which was a bit mild, and managed to keep cool just fine. The hottest day we did shut the curtains on the bunk ends and just keep the mid section cool. We got the PUGs half way through the year which helped, but the side walls need treatment next year. The trouble is that those bunk ends are such a source of light I hate covering/closing them. In exchange for the heat though I guess it's a fair trade off.
2. Ours has an LED band on the top of the wall next to the awning. Love it. Lights up great.
for an action shot.
Things to watch out for, make sure to get a fantastic fan in the bathroom. That fan is the key to pulling air through the thing and bigger == better. We also have the bunk end fans, which we use some, but are loud buzzing together with the fantastic fan on high. They do work well though to pull cool air from the main body of the camper into the bunk ends if you're AC'ing it up.
