Seismic, thoughts?

Hey all. About ready to pull the trigger on a Seismic, 3914 or 3712. More likely the 39. Before I do just looking for your thoughts good bad or indifferent from those who do or did own one.

Were a family in our thirties with two kids, teenagers(13, 16) and two labs.

Looking forward to the flexibility of the flexible space of the utility space. Queen bunks, high top tables, bench and tables, screened in porch, party deck, recliners for a game, room for kayaks, a quad, etc.

She's a biggin. 48-50' with the back ramp down.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I think you will really like it for the room. We have a 3210, hauling a RZR and a 92 lb. Black Lab with us. Other than switching out the dinette seating for something more comfortable, there isn't a thing we would change. Have been living in ours full time since May 2013.

Thanks. We have choice of 4 seat theatre seating or two place couch with adjacent dinette booth. Were leaning toward the 4 place theater recliners. Your thoughts?

Decision between the 3712 and 3914. Still think the 3914 is a better deal. Question on the rear utility room. Kids (13 and 16 not so much kids) will sleep there at night. Does the A/C blow pretty good in there and does it sleep pretty comfortably at night? Were hauling a quad and a kayak.

I picked the 3914 because of the 14' garage , wife picked it for the bathroom space . Had a 12' garage on last unit , the extra 2' is a huge benefit for me and what I haul . I would recommend the added awning option , love that one . The patio door that connects the garage to rest of coach is another feature we love , if you want to use both spaces it gives the impression of one large living space instead of two smaller spaces or you can close door and curtain for privacy . couch and bed are comfortable in garage .

You should camp with that Seismic at Yellowstone. I just heard they had a 4.8 seismic event there yesterday.

Thanks Slaw. You reaffirmed my thoughts! Hey do you have one or two AC units installed on that and if you've used it in the summer throughout the entire coach with rear door closed how does the AC keep up? Investing in the 2nd unit we think but wanted your opinion. And we definately went with the second and third awning! How can you beat that.

Dewey, good one!

Get the second ac unit . There are going to be days that you may need it . Just like the extra room in the garage , I would rather have it and not need it , than need it and not have it

Agreed. Thanks Slaw. Where do you guys take her? Do you have issues with the rig length and camping sites? Figure need 50' to put the back deck down. That's my only concern. Hope I don't severely limit my choices. Having that Onan on board will open up lots of state parks , etc that otherwise wouldn't be overnightable. (Other than an external boat anchor gen sets)

Thanks again.

Paperwork enroute to sign. Deep breath. Pretty exciting though.

size does matter. i used to drive a big truck for a living , so pulling a 44' trailer isnt anything new to me . you do need to think 2 turns ahead of you . most of the campgrounds have places for these long of trailers . as long as trailer tires are on parking surface , not on grass you are ok . with a trailer like the 3914 approx 12' overhang on rearend , making footprint much shorter .
