    2018 Newport with pantry in place of 1/2 bath

    Hi folks, I have been lurking here for a month in preparation of a Landmark purchase. Was at dealer today to possibly order and they informed me of the option to replace the 1/2 bath with a pantry. My wife loves everything about this unit except the lack of storage. We thought we would go with the Arlington but dealer says they are being discontinued. Has anyone ordered this option and have any pictures? Tried the search function without much luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    Jim

    We have a 2015 Newport without the 1/2 bath. We call it the "office" and use it as such. Not sure if the pantry option is the same thing (I thought they discontinued offering it). Mine is at the dealer for some minor service work so I can't take any pictures right now, but I'll look through my photos and see if I can find some pictures. I can tell you, it got a ton of storage. So much so, that we don't use all of it.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the sales guy said you could chose office or pantry in place of 1/2 bath for an up charge of course. He had a few options on a second sheet of paper, it also included Goodyear tires.
    So if you have the office option I presume they didn't mount the second black tank then also.

    Hi Jim,

    There is a thread in this forum that says the Arlington is back in production and if you look at the floor plans on this site you can see that they have changed the bathroom a little. My husband and I are looking at that floor plan and the phoenix.

    That is correct Jim. I do not have the second black tank. Mine also came with the Goodyear tires, but then I purchased this unit at the Tampa RV Show in 2015 so it was pretty loaded with options so they could show it off. They had two of them close together. One had King bed, darker interior colors, dishwasher, induction cooktop and the downstairs 1/2 bath. This one had queen bed, lighter interior colors, gas oven with gas cooktop, no dishwasher and the downstairs office. It was exactly what "She Who Must Be Listened To And Obeyed" wanted. She fell in love with it and even though our 2014 San Antonio Landmark was less than 2 years old, we got this one. I have fallen in love with the Newport and have not seen any models since that would get me out of this rig. It is perfect for us.

    Re: 2018 Newport with pantry in place of 1/2 bath

    I found that the Newport with half bath has a lot of cabinet space, plus room above the toilet for a corner cabinet. With the slide out pantry drawers next to the stove (left side of stove), we have a ton of storage. Tossing paper towels and toilet paper above the vanity in the half bath, and using the basement for a few items is enough without over loading.

    I am glad we have the half bath. Crawling over the bed when traveling is an option, but the one just inside the door "down stairs" is easier. Also, one of us inevitably is up earlier than the other and not having to move around the bedroom and front bath is quieter.

    We full time and the Newport has been a perfect option, for our needs. Took the dinette out and put in a desk as I work from home. Beth can nap when I am working, and I can avoid running up stairs and through the bedroom to the bath.
    Life is not a journey with the intent of arriving in a well preserved package, but sliding in sideways, big grin on your face, body thoroughly used up, shouting Woohoo what a ride!

    We have the BC with the same floor plan and ditto on having plenty of storage for food and dishes. The downstairs bath is wonderful. No one has to walk through my bedroom to the bathroom and my DW does not have to put all of her personal stuff away every time we have company. She keeps the downstairs bathroom looking like a bathroom in a model home. Plus, the downstairs bathroom will allow you to replace the toilet with the "King of Thrones" the Dometic 320 as Travel Tiger has once said. The upstairs bath I don't believe will work with the 320 because of wall spacing. I work and live out of the BC while on the road and being able to shower and go downstairs without having to go back upstairs to use the bathroom before leaving is a huge plus. Waking up the DW and two dogs at 5 am is not good.

    I thought I was the only one walking around saying that??? We are close to full time, hope within 2 years. Wife likes the Newport, we have an open range 3x now that we are going to get beat up on bad so I have 1 chance to get this right, can't swap them in every couple years, it gets expensive.

    I looked and looked for more info on the Arlington but after the comments above about the second bath I might try to talk her into that. I have a great custom cabinet maker local, I am sure he could add some more storage.

    Appreciate all the reply, seem like a great bunch of folks in here.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Trust me Jim, you won't find a nicer bunch of people than the Heartland Owners Club folks. Always willing to share knowledge and fun. When you get your Newport, please consider joining the Heartland Owners Club. I promise you, you won't regret it.

    Just glad I was able to share what little knowledge I have. If you get the 1/2 bath downstairs, you won't regret it. Most folks prefer it and it already has a ton of storage space without adding any cabinets, but there is space to add one over the camode. Because I still "work" from the road, we wanted the downstairs office and it works well for us. If you get a chance go to an RV show or dealer that has a Newport with the 1/2 bath. That might just be the selling point for "The Boss." Call Heartland Customer Service and ask them where the closest dealer with a 1/2 bath Newport is to you.

    Jim, in case you didn't know, manufacturers change the decor/options every year. Floor plans can last about 3-4 years before they are likely retired to make room for the latest and greatest. Just be aware if you all "fall in love" with a floorplan/decor now, it won't be the same in 2 years. Cabinetry color and style, flooring, window treatments, color/style of the hardware, fabric color for furniture will change, and the the Mrs., it makes a BIG difference.

    I was recently looking at an advertisement online for a 2016 Big Country, same floorplan as ours. But it was the "early" 2016, and I still hated it!

    Back in 2016, we saw this plan in Goshen at the National Rally. We liked the plan but could not get past the decor. They changed a bunch of the decor in "late" 2016, and we loved it! And bought it!
