hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here in gorgeous Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you all about the 2017 coachman leprechaun 240 FS this is a great floorplan it's new for this year let's go ahead and start on the outside here we'll make our way around and then head on in. So, right up front one of the things we'll notice on the leprechaun is the front cap there beautiful fiberglass front cap doesn't see how it has LED lights that are inlaid gives it a really nice look at night it is on the fore of this particular models on a Ford e450 chassis you'll see right here you do have the side view cameras on both sides of course that in conjunction with your mirrors really help cover visibility that way you can see all of your blind spots fiberglass running boards on this coach give it a great aesthetic and also make it nice and easy to climb into to the passenger or driver side power awning you can see that spans the entire length the coach here one touch of a, button that rolls out same thing to roll back in very simple and easy to use take a look right here this one does have several storage compartments this one being one of them it's nice and close to the door of course it is on the door side, but items you know smaller items you may get into fairly often that's a great place for them right there of course here's the door grab handle here as well make it nice and easy to get inside this is really cool this is a Furion solar charge so, if you do want solar on the coach it is already pre-wired all you have to do is buy the panel's plug it in and you can start trickle charging the battery right here is your outside entertainment center you can see right here is the TV as well as your multimedia center here so, if you do want to listen to music you can certainly do that otherwise you can put all your chairs here underneath the awning and watch a show that way you have a little bit of shade and cover now a couple things.
I like to talk about in the coachmen one of them is it's outside fiberglass right here this fiberglass is a high gloss fiberglass also it is color infused all the way through. So, what that means for you is, if you brush up against it and you get a scratch it's not going to show up as white because it's that same color all the way through. So, that's a big advantage for you another thing behind this fiberglass coachmen uses as Dell composite panels, if you're not familiar with as Dell it is a great thing it's lighter than luan which is what most your manufacturers use it won't absorb moisture which will help.
So, you don't get delamination like you see in a lot of old coaches where you have those bubbles you won't get that with as Dell because it won't absorb moisture like luan does and also it's considered a green material it's not a plywood. So, it doesn't have to use the glues to hold it together you won't get that off-gassing in the coach. So, as far as construction coachman has superior construction there another thing we do we let you know we're here in Michigan it gets cold in the winter.
So, we think it's very important to get the camping cozy package on there there's a couple of reasons for it one is as. I mentioned the cold it's great insulation what it does is it gives you heated holding tanks so, if you are going through colder climates you plan on a camping in them you can turn on those heating heated holding tanks it'll make sure you're holding tanks don't freeze on you, but the other thing more importantly in my mind is the dual pane windows all of your big classes have dual pane windows right and there's good reason for it they're much better insulation and they don't rattle going down the road. So, dual-pane helps keep the heater cold in helps keep noise out even road noise and you know one of the big things about classes they give a reputation for having a lot of rattles going down the road part of that is because the windows though single panes tend to rattle in there you won't have that with the dual pane windows.
So, huge advantage in that camping cozy package to move back a little bit further here again right here is some extra storage we can go ahead and open this guy up for you you can take a look right there great extra storage this is electrical outlet so, if you need to plug in like a blender outside skillet griddle you can go ahead and do that set up your table right here underneath the awning also you do have the ride rite air ride on there. So, that of course will give you a better ride going down the road it's come in the back here with me cool thing about the leprechaun one of the upgrades over the Freelander you know it has some nice aesthetic. So, you have saw the fiberglass front cap you have the european-style lights right there give it a great look this is a ladder to climb up onto the roof pretty obvious.
I suppose, but of course the big advantage of having a ladder it's always there with you you don't have to worry about bringing one. So, we need to get up and clean off your roof before you leave camp you can go ahead and do that very easily also right up top there you'll see your back up camera of course that helps you back up make sure you're not going to hit anything underneath the bumper here is a hitch five thousand-pound hitch there so, if you need to tow another vehicle you can easily do that also five hundred pound tongue weight so, if you need to put a bike rack in there that can handle that as well come around to the off off door side here with me we'll go ahead and drop this down take a look at this this is awesome huge storage compartment in here this has the rotocast line bins you can see right down here that has drain plugs there as well so, if you get any water in there, if you know, if you want to put coolers or something in here and it gets full of water it's nice and easy to go ahead and drain right out, if you take a look this is the slide, but, if you take a look at the top of the slide there you will see this unit also comes fully equipped with that slide out topper that really great because, if any sticks or acorns or anything fall from a tree on top of the slide instead of having to climb the ladder up there and sweeping them off your slide you can just roll that slide in they'll just come right off that top or as you push the slide in. So, a big advantage to having those two then right over here outside shower right they're both hot and cold access your TV.
Inlet will be there this is another storage area it does kind of creep around the corner there. So, some great extra storage over there then, if we scoot underneath the slide this is a little bit tougher to reach, but again we'll go ahead and open this up you can see additional storage here this is our generator go ahead and open that up you can see that right there Cummins Onan 4000 watt Jenny and then last, but not least right over here is a one final storage area there alright folks. So, that's pretty much going to wrap it up for the outside a lot of great features out here nice big slide you can see it basically covers the entire wall you know down there it is a little bit harder to get to, but again any storage on an RV is great storage and when this slide is in you know, if you put things there you can empty out real quick it's super easy to get to all right.
I'll wrap it up for out here let's head on in over the inside of the 2017 coachman leprechaun 240 FS this particular model is in the cognac interior let's go ahead and start off right over here this is really cool as soon as you walk in the door you'll see right here you have this swivel chair not only is this comfortable, but also does have a seat belt. So, you can have a legal additional rider window right there lets in a bunch of natural light also you have a reading light up top here so, if they want to read you can do that as well open this up and you can see there you have some additional storage space right over here is the cab where you can see you have the privacy curtain so, if you want to close that off you can certainly do that, if you're familiar with the Class C basically the way it works this part right here moves over drops down and then that will complete your bed now there are a couple other components up here one is the ladder in order to climb up and in which of course will go right here the other one is the safety net so, if you notice there are some seat belts right up here on the end of the safety net is of course the other end of the seatbelt. So, that just clips right in that way your safety net will be right here no one's going to roll out and hurt themselves in the middle of the night also, if you take a look up there you will see a max fan that is awesome so, if you don't want to run the AC at night you can open up some windows turn the max fan on you can get really nice ventilation coming through the coach reading light right over here as well as additional window space now, if we take a look down below this of course is the cab two-tone leather seats in here give it a really nice look you have the wood grain - plenty of cup holders in there great space and then you also have the Bluetooth stereo as well as the backup camera right there in the center then moving over this is our big slide out essentially.
So, you have a slide out right here for you dinette you can see this actually extends all the way back into the bedroom this is a really cool floorplan let me kind of show you basically how it works. So, you die not right here this provides great seating of course place to eat, if you need to play a game great room to do that as well and this table does drop down for additional sleeping space windows all the way on this round here nice big window lets in a ton of natural light and LED lights right here up top then, if you take a look underneath great storage this one right here just drops right down and then this one is actually a drawer that pulls open for you also, if you did notice right here is an electrical outlet so, if you do need to sit here work on laptop or tablet you can certainly go ahead and plug that in and do. So, now this is where the floor plan gets really neat this we open this cabinet up you can see right there is the TV and sound bar then right here of course the stereo multimedia Center so, if you want to you can leave it just like that go ahead and sit right there and watch TV and then on the end here you have additional storage great place right there for your DVD collection or other little knickknacks you want to put in there, but where this floorplan really excels is right on the other side of this door here is a, button and this whole thing slides out let me show you real quick.
So, just like that just hold the, button this slides right out and then it reveals the rest of your entertainment center. So, right down here is a Fighter place which not only gives you a great aesthetic and look, but also is it basically a space heater cool thing about this because the electric it's free heat so. I have to do is plug it in to shore power instead of running your propane you can turn this guy on to help take the chill off in this space the other cool thing the TV right here does spin around you can go ahead and lift this up this spins around just like.
So, that way you can spin around watch TV in the bedroom as well and you have this wall right here which provides additional privacy as we move over into the kitchen you can see here you do have good countertop space and a lot of that is due to the countertop extension right here as well as the sink top cover now the sink cover of course does come off you can use this as a cutting board, if you. So, desire then moving right over here you'll see the under mount sink large bowl on the Left smaller one here on the right as well as the pullout faucet in order to aid in doing dishes go ahead and put that right back there nice big window here let's in a lot of natural light LED light right there up top as well and then moving up a little bit further you can see excellent pantry space all right up there we scooch down below you'll see here you have additional storage enough room to sneak a small trash can in there as well as your cleaning supplies and then right here you have three full extension drawers moving over a little further half we move back up on top of the countertop here go ahead and lift this up this is really cool it's what they call a power tower you'll see you have your two standard outlets as well as two USB ports. So, they need to plug in coffeemaker blender or, if you just want to plug in your cell phone you can go ahead and do that as well there is one more plug in over by the countertop extension 2 then right up here and aux will start at the very top you have additional storage right up there convection microwave here which is great exactly it does double as a convection oven not just a microwave which you know does cook your food faster than your regular oven it's easier to clean in doesn't put out the heat underneath that is the fully functional hood with the light and the fan three burner atwood cooktop high output up front great flame control in the Atwood as well then underneath is your standard oven in case you're not a fan of the convection also right here go ahead and pull that guy out you can see additional storage there rounding out the kitchen right here is the Dometic fridge freezer.
I'll go ahead and open that up for you you can see you have a cutout here for taller items this unit does run off of both propane and electric and also has automatic switch over that way, if you're running it off propane you plug it in to shore power it'll automatically switch over to electric for you saving you on the propane gas then right here is the bathroom why don't we come on up we can take a look at the bath right down in the corner here is your foot flush lover toilet you can see you have good legroom toilet paper holder there as well nice big linen closet in the corner here behind it there's your hand towel ring mirror and then down below that is your sink top and vanity with additional storage over to the side is the shower you can see the hand wand there and that up top is a nice big skylight letting in a lot of natural light and also giving you additional Headroom then right here is the bedroom. So, of course queen-size bed right there this is a foldable mattress, but it is an upgraded mattress and. I'm telling you you will never know.
I'm going to mess up the bedspread a second here maybe a little bit tough to see, but there is a seam somewhere there there it is right there, but what they do is they put this padding over it and you can't even tell. I'm telling you it's the most comfortable foldable mattress you will ever sleep on in your life when you lay on it you can't tell all there's a seam. So, fantastic mattress, but that is because it is an upgraded foldable mattress.
So, queen bed there both sides you can see you have shelving this one is permanent that one over there pops up and then also over by the pop-up shelf is a charging Center with USB ports there as well as a 12-volt connection window here let's in some natural light LED reading light up top max fan in the ceiling then as. I showed you earlier in the little half wall right over there is the TV and sound bar you can see how that flipped right around the last thing. I want to show you this is really cool.
