hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV and Grand Rapids Michigan and today. I'm here to tell you all about the 2018 Keystone sprinter 334 front living fifth wheel this particular model is in the Ashford interior they've really done some awesome changes this year and. I'm excited to go through this RV with you one of the things.
I love about the front living model, if you don't get this very often in the mid profile usually you have to go to a full profile to get it and you're going to be you know ten to fifteen thousand dollars more so, if you want a really nice front living fifth wheel on a little bit more of a budget this is one you definitely want to stick around for we'll start right up front here you see you have a 55 inch TV. So, nice big TV everyone can sit around and enjoy great for entertaining you want some good sound quality too. So, right underneath you have your sound bar that is Bluetooth capable and it controls the speakers outside you can control the speaker zones right here nice and easily, if you want to hook up any auxilary equipment they do stick an electrical outlet right down here and there's a hole here.
So, you can bring your cables up and plug them into the TV right underneath that's your fireplace not only is this great for athletics and you know help create the mood, but also it doesn't great job of heating this space up that does run off electric so, if you're not paying for electric that's essentially free heat which is really nice both sides here you have some nice extra storage you can see that they're great for DVD collection or whatever else you want to stick in there and then right underneath here you have some big open storage there too now you have dual opposing slides here in the front living which is one of the reasons this is. So, open up here one of the cool things about this printer is much like your more expensive full profile fifth wheels this unit has a wide-body chassis that allows them to have two trifold sofas here instead of one of them being a jackknife, if you're not familiar with trifold the reason those are great is because they're super comfortable to sit on and more importantly they're very comfortable to sleep on as well it actually uses the couch cushions themselves as your bed look how thick that that way, if you do have any guests that stay the night you'll know they'll have a comfortable night's sleep they're not going to wake up with an aching back or an air mattress that has deflated on them you'll also see you have a ton of windows up here. So, during the day it is nice and bright you can get great cross ventilation going on especially with your vent fan right up here just pop that guy open you'll notice right here now is the back seat in the house this is your dual theater seating right across from the TV both B's of course recline you'll see you have double cupholders there as well in case you know you want to enjoy and beverage while you're sitting here watching TV, but again.
I love the front living room feel it is really nice for entertaining or just for kicking back and relaxing your AC unit is right here too that is ducted throughout the reason. I like this because you know when you're sitting up here, if it's a really hot day and a lot of people worry oh he's going to rise in or sit in the living room, but just open this guy up you have a quick dump it'll dump all right out into here and it will cool you down in a hurry let's step on down into the kitchen real quick you'll start with this guy right here you see kind of like a nice little bar top this is kind of neat too you know, if your again, if you're entertaining and you have guests up in the living room you want to have like a party trailer something you can put it right here and you know they can grab it nice and easily don't even have to come down in the kitchen then you have an electrical outlet over here as well in case you want to plug something in one of the biggest changes they made to the kitchen area is this right here and. I love this they took this from their den floorplan you know it's absolutely gorgeous it creates a lot of seating you can easily fit six people here has a nice Rock looking pillar on there beautiful solid surface tabletop here as well so.
I think this is really cool again, if you're you know having a lot of guests over or, if you want to you know have a big meal together this allows you to do it and take a look at the size of that window you know again you can open that up you have a great view out to your campsite like a ton of natural light into the kitchen here as well then at nighttime you have an LED light underneath the cabinets as well as LED lights on the ceiling big skylight right up there too you can pull that off, if you want, but obviously that's great for daylight good storage up top here you'll see it is supported for one-hand operation that we don't have to hold it up with one arm while you reach in with the other and then right down here you have your standard electrical outlet as well as dual USB ports you'll see here's your mass air control kind of by the kitchen area here you have a max air fan which is great for cooking things that smell a little bit more like you know cooking bacon or something like that do you want to get that delicious smell out of your trailer you can go ahead and kick on the max air fan and then you have your thermostat there underneath let's take a look at the rest of the kitchen here. So, your main prep area will be right here again beautiful solid surface countertops throughout you see you have an undermount stainless steel sink you're able to do that when you have solid surface with this sink top cover take a look this sink top cover doesn't move that's something that's kind of a big deal a lot of times you have the sink top covers there they kind of slide in and out of the sink this is completely usable as prep space you also see the industrial style high rise faucet here which is great and, if we remove that sink cover that does reveal that big stainless steel farm farm style Bowl there which is really great for your larger residential cookware because you can actually fit it down in there to wash it right up top here you'll see you have good additional storage on both sides again right here this is strut support it's the same thing one hand operation and, if you take a look underneath you have electrical outlets there on both sides. So, anything else need to plug in here whether it's a blender or a toaster or whatever it may be you have a spot in which you can put it good storage underneath as well you can see here you have a bank of four full extension drawers.
So, excellent place for your silverware serving utensils hot pads everything you need some additional storage right there under the sink where you can put some cleaning chemicals and then you'll also notice the nice blue accent lighting under here, if that's not your style you can of course turn that off, but over here is your cooktop you can see you have a little bit of prep space here as well, but the thing. I like is they put an electrical outlet right over there so, if this is a great place for a coffee maker you know, if you're like me you like your coffee in the morning you usually want a dedicated spot to put it this would probably be where. I would put it personally, if we take a look up top you have stainless steel microwave this is the weight of the unit 10,000 240 pounds not the lightest thing in the world, but not too terribly heavy either next to the microwave you see you have some good storage shelf built in this is great for a spice rack area right here's your hood with the lightning fan and then a dress underneath that is your atwood cooktop and oven you can see you have the upgraded grill right here.
So, again you can still use this as prep space to nice solid area that you can put place or whatever else on plus it looks heck of a lot nicer underneath there's you know in case you want to do some baking nice big oven and then over to this side you have three more full extension drawers. So, lots of very usable storage here in the kitchen moving over a tiny bit further we get into our fridge freezer combo you can see you have a cutout here eight cubic foot nice and big this one does run off full propane and electric and also has automatic switch over now. I know what you're thinking.
I need a pantry do not worry here you are you have huge pantry space right here in the bottom what. I like they didn't put a shelf in there you know, if you notice under the sink you didn't have quite enough space to put a trash can. So, instead they give you the space right over here that way it's still tucked away so.
I think that was a good choice on their behalf. So, there's more a little bit further we get into wardrobe space you can take a look right here you have a large hanging rod going all the way across excellent wardrobe there underneath you have some good storage too, if you have large to large full extension drawers there as well as three smaller ones right over here. I personally think this is pretty cool too.
I think it's a great use of space the reason is you know you're probably more likely getting changed in the bathroom here it's nice and big it allows you to grab your clothes head right in there speaking up let's go take a look the bathroom in the 334 is nice and large as well one of the advantages of having a front living & rear bath is you have huge ceiling height in here you can see how tall that is so, if you're a taller person you don't have to worry about hitting your ceiling when you're showering you all you have two x's and exits into the bathroom one for main living area and then a slider door right here into the bedroom right in between the two is your porcelain foot flush lever toilet porcelain bowl of course it's a lot easier to clean across from that you have your sink top and vanity nice stainless steel bowl in there you can see that's upgraded then some additional storage right here underneath electrical outlet there to plug in your hair dryer or other items and that mirrored medicine cabinet here up top, if you take a look over to the side you have a really nice new angle shower don't mind all the antifreeze the hair in the bottom, but the thing. I like about this shower insteed shower doors are in a roller track nice magnet here to keep it shotwire showering, but when you're done showering and you open it up all the water will go from the doors right down into that shower pan not going to be all over your floor we also see you have a nice little step there in case you need to shave your legs in the shower some additional shelving hand wand there and a huge skylight up top letting in a lot of natural light you also have ducted AC in here in case it's warm and you have a vent right over there to quickly help moisture escape right behind me here as well as a nice table rack you know if. I put robes here towels that way when you get out of the shower you have direct access to that the bedroom of the 334 is also large and spacious, if you have a slide-out queen bed here with additional storage here underneath that is strut assisted.
So, it's nice and easy to lift up that way you can access anything you put under there on both sides of the bed there on the slide-out you'll see you have Windows. So, you have good cross ventilation and then up top you have some additional storage as well as a reading light right here in the back the nice big window. I like when you're able to do this one it left a lot of natural light in of course, but -, if you have a nice view out the back maybe you're lucky enough to pull up to you know lakeside or oceanfront something like that you can certainly enjoy the view right out here also at the foot of the bed you see some nice additional storage you do have another hanging rod in here just in case the Wardrobe alcohol wasn't quite enough or, if you want some other clothes in here you some additional storage space right there down below as well as a nice dresser another window here at the foot of the bed again you know same kind of reasons there and you have TV hookup so, if you do want to watch a show before bed you have a place in which you can do it lastly, if you take a look up the ceiling not only do you have all the LED lights here, but you also have an AC a second AC.
I should say which it only controls the bedroom here. So, that way at night you can go ahead and turn that on and really cool it down in here now that we've seen the beautiful inside let's take a look at the outside of the Sprinter 334 we'll start right up front with the fully painted cap and what you'll notice is this cuts back right here that's part of the sprinter Mac's turn technology which allows for tighter turns when you are backing up you'll also notice you have a mirror here that we were able to see as you back up to help align the hitch with the kingpin just making hooking up that much easier take a quick look underneath open this front compartment up and you can see how nice and clean this is you don't have a bunch of stuff cluttering up your space in here. So, good extra storage you have the battery over to the side as well which is vented for you right out the front you'll also notice over here you have a light in case you are hooking up with disconnecting at night you can see what's going on as well as your solar right here it is pre-wired so, if you want solar all.
I have to do is buy the Furion panels plug it in right there and it will trickle charge your battery underneath is a spare tire hopefully you never have to use it, but, if you do. I love the location here a lot of times on fifth wheels you really have to get underneath the fifth wheel to be able to find it not the case here it is nice and easy to access over to the sides you will see that this unit has auto level that's another huge feature to have on your mid profiles again a lot of times, if to spend another you know ten fifteen thousand dollars to get Auto level as a standard not the case on the Sprinter. So, you just touch a, button it will go ahead and level itself out for you just making setting up and tearing down camp easier because it has a memory there too.
So, when you're done you can hit a, button again the coach will actually move to where you dropped it off at. So, you can back the truck and hook up and go right up here you have some nice storage we can take a look at that, if you do have a covered hinge not a bunch of rust coming down the door strut assisted which is nice because that way it's one hand operation you have a slide right here sighs they couldn't have it fold all the way up this was definitely the best option, but again big open storage all the way through there you can see the aluminum frame you know this is a fully laminated product here you can take a look at the awning up there the big power awning touch of a, button to roll that out same thing to go right back in you'll see in the head you have speakers. I briefly talked about that when we were inside those are actually controlled by your soundbar inside and can control the speaker zone right on that sound bar that sound bars bluetooth capable.
So, what that means for you is, if you're sitting out here relaxing and you want to go to hookup music from your cell phone or tablet you can do that via bluetooth. I also have an LED light strip underneath there. So, that way you don't have to hang up your Christmas lights you know it's a tall coat you don't have to get up there on a ladder to do it don't flip a switch you're good to go another thing.
I love about the awning placement is look right here you don't have any vents you know a lot of times manufacturers will put refrigerator furnaces on this side right here in your main camp space you have that hot air blowing on you not the case on the 334 getting into the coach is quite simple you have the foldable easy grab handle right here as well as three aluminum steps the aluminum of course won't rust out on you which is great and has the rubber strips on here for some extra traction that way you have good control from the first step all the way in and out of the coach right here's a nice little badge this one this shows that this unit is capable to operate at zero degrees as well as a hundred the reason that's important is sprinter has spent the extra money to have the testing done most manufacturers will say they have a polar package or Arctic package or something things can get to freezing temperatures, but they've never tested it sprinter is actually gone they've done a third-party test had it in an isolated chamber and got to those temperatures and you know again it's zero degrees as long as the furnace is running inside 74 inside you were above 40 degrees underneath meaning that your tanks and lines and everything else aren't to freeze on you this is a minor change here for 2018 you know they just have a nice cleaner look on here kind of this crosshatch pattern which. I like it more than what they had before you know they kind of more of a hammered look before, but again. I think it just adds the last static to the outside here that's that huge window we saw when we were inside right by the dinette their electrical outlet.
So, not only can you set up you know your camp here, but, if you want to put a table maybe a crock pot or something on it plug it right in there need to charge a cellphone gives you a place to do that to aluminum alloy wheels that way they won't rust out on you in less chance for any kind of corrosion and they are nitrogen filled. So, they will hold their pressure longer making our way back a little bit further take a look at this now they do have that front storage compartment magnetic latch on this one. I will add to take a look underneath the bed this is that extra storage in the bedroom.
So, you have two access points. I showed you how the bed could lift up and you could get at it or you can get at it right here from the outside and of course you can lock that as well in case you do have some valuable items under the bed there coming around to the back this unit does come with a rear mounted ladder which something you would definitely want on a nice fifth wheel like this because you know once or twice a year you want to get up on the roof and do some checking do some examining making sure that everything is nice and tight. So, you don't have any water coming in and, if naturally it is a fully walkable roof this is the window in the bedroom again nice big window there right up above that window you will see this unit does have backup camera preps so, if you want to backup camera no this is the long coach you can certainly have one installed with that prep it's basically a plug-and-play which makes it a lot less expensive to have that installed so, if we take a look the off door side right here is the docking station.
I'll open this up for you. So, you can take a quick look you know you have your water connection right here and it's really easy to flip this guy whether you want it to be a city or fill the tank you can see you have the proper orientation right up top there over to the side here is your outside shower with both hot and cold water access black tank flush right here to make washing out your black tank a lot easier and you will also see your saddle and cable inlets moving a little bit further water heater right here this is the other side of the pass-through storage and then, if we take a look at the very front you will see you have 230 pound propane tanks right here with your switch over that way you have plenty of propane for the colder season last thing. I want to mention is this guy right here is your auto level you can see right outside of it they put the control there.
So, that way, if you have any questions on how to work it you know it's a quick reference guide right there for you, but all right folks that wraps it up again it's the 2018 Keystone sprinter 334 front living fifth wheel, if you're interested in this RV and you'd like price and availability.
