Looks like we have narrowed the search to 4 units.

Fuzion 302
Fuzion 305
Voltage 3002 - new floor plan
Voltage 3200

I think we want the 302 but I think we might end up with the 3200. The 2 dealers are working hard to earn our business.

We decided the toy hauler has the features we want. Our only worry is the single heat duct in the garage area where the kids are going to sleep. We do often camp in areas that get down to freezing at night.

All 4 are pretty similar. They do all have some plus and minus to us.

Anybody have any feedback on these units?

If you have electric hookup, a small fan-forced space heater does wonders. We have never used the gas furnace in any of our trailers. Always one or two small fan heaters will work nicely, even down to freezing temps. If you're paying for electric service, might as well use it for the heaters and not burn up your propane with the furnace.
Just a thought concerning your comment about the one heat-duct in the garage area. A small heater would supplement that nicely, or replace it all together.

y22man,
I can't speak to the Fuzions, but IMHO I like the 3200 better than the 3005. We got our 3200 before the 3005 came out, but for the extra 10" in length, you get more room in the bathroom, an under-mount double-bowl stainless sink in the kitchen and the sliding glass door between living area and garage - all items the DW really likes. The 3005 features list a lot more options than standards that the 3200 has - check to make sure if it is missing anything you might want.
The garage area does get quite chilly, but with a space heater and warm blankets the kids should have no problems sleeping there.

We ran into some cold weather last fall in MI and just put a small fan in front of the garage heat outlet and it circulated the heat around the garage and kept it at the same temp as the rest of the trailer. I am looking into putting a "in the duct" fan in the duct that goes to the garage with an on/off switch to replace the external fan we used last year. Other than that it is a great unit.

randot, you have the best RV dealer in the whole U.S. in Ellensburg. We drove all the way there from Wyoming to buy our new TT. Tod, the owner, will make sure everything is right when you buy from them.

Have you seen the Voltage 3002? Do you have any more info on it? I can't seem to find anything on the net about it. It must be VERY new. Also, Fuzions are usually a little less money, at least in my area, so that has to be weighed into the equation as well. Fuzion also has a couple of models similar to the Voltage 3200. They are the 310 and 315. I saw the Fuzion 310 and Voltage 3200 side by side the other day. Voltage in my view just seems a little nicer all the way around in all categories but like I mentioned above, more money. At the show I was at, $13000 more.

My kids sleep in the garage bunks and we just leave the slider open so the temp stays the same throughout.

I have a brochure in my truck. It is a new model this year. They are going to present it at the RV show here in SLC, UT. To me it felt a lot like the 3200 with some options take out and a little shorter. It only has 1 or 2 TVs. No sliding door to garage. Just a wall and door. No outside entertainment package. Outside speakers tho. They are going to have it for around 41K at the RV show.

The brochure does not have any of the wights,PIN,dry, or wet. All listed as TBD. I can scan the doc if you want.

The wall seperating the garage will probally nix the 3002. The garage will be the kids play room, and well, kids get into stuff, so we want to supervise them.

Fuzion 305 pin is just too heavy. So that one is probally nixed too.

We are leaning twards the Fuzion 302 due to price but I have not chewed down a voltage dealer yet on a 3200. There are a couple 3200 Epics still left in Utah.

I stand corrected. The new model is not a 3002. It is a 3005.

I must of had the fuzion 302 on the brain and that translated to what I typed. Sorry for the confusion.

Unfortunately they don’t have any new toy haulers and the only used THs I have seen on their lot since we got to Ellensburg are Keystones. We decided against Keystone and narrowed it down to Heartland or Dutchmen and Canopy Country doesn’t carry either. Another unfortunate thing is Jayco does not make a smaller TH and their current THs are not even legal in WA.
