That is sweet info - thanks! That explains some of my confusion - thinking I saw a bigger fridge in some pictures and then not in others. Definitely prefer the bigger fridge. Any idea if the same change was done to the Eagle 355MBQS? The lack of a sink in these outdoor kitchenettes is one of the last hurdles we have to convincing ourselves.

Not sure, have not looked into the Eagle line much.

About the outside fridge on the 2018 377RLBH. We have found that we will need the bars to hold things on the shelves while traveling. Example water bottles fall out and hold the door open while traveling. Someone else posted about adding a small board to the RV door to hold the fridge door closed if this happens.

Also found the outside cook top to small. So taking a decent size skillet and frying bacon for the family doesn't fit well with the wind breaks up around the cook top. The skillet is way off centered on the burner. I bought a Camp Chef cook top to solve this that I tie into the quick connect on the trailer with a griddle.

I wish it did have a sink but I have been using wipes for now to semi solve this. I might consider a portable sink but I'm not sure how the parks would like the water running out on the ground with a little grease in it.

The outside kitchen is lacking and missing quite a bit to make it really useful from what other manufactures or models offer. It could also use a drawer to keep outside utensils in also.

Hope this helps.

That absolutely helps - thank you! You pretty much confirmed our perception of the outside kitchen in the 377 (and by extension the 355MBQS, fridge size notwithstanding). We looked at how we currently use our outside kitchen and felt the RLBH version was not going to measure up. Totally sucks - the floorplan was pretty much perfect otherwise.

An electric skillet on a table is much better to cook on. Manufacturers spend millions of dollars to figure what will sell and then figure out the cheapest way to offer that. It looks great at an RV show and makes them profits.

Amen. I have yet to have much use for the outside kitchen grills, stove tops, or the bumper mounted grills that come with the trailers. The outside kitchen for us is almost a must have for the fridge, sink, storage, counter space, and little else. Really waiting for a great mid bunk house floorplan that we like with a good outside kitchen.

Anyone have a 2018 with the extendable rear and middle jacks? What I mean is you can manual drop the pads down like on the front before you use the electric portion.

Mine do not have a manual extend, I was suprised as I have had them on past trailers.

Nope. Just the fronts

I would try some online dealers and see what prices you get.
RVdirect and that one in Indiana. Some one help me out here, I forget the name.
I think that price should be closer to your price for a 2018.

I'm iffy about the tire option too... I know they are good, but that's a lot of $$.
Unless you get a different rim.
You could get Sailuns for a lot less then that. Ask Magnolia Tom about them.
And if you have absolutely no desire to put a generator in, then the gen prep is throwing money out the window.

JMHO.
I think you were referring to The RVExpress ...It is located in the same community that Jayco Factory is located
