The 2013 Challenger 37GT model offers consumers an innovative, spacious kitchen design featuring an island kitchen with “massive counter top spaces,” according to a news release.

Continuing the trend of modern and intelligent design, the overhead storage throughout the kitchen is multi-functional with a wine rack that includes hanging glass storage.

The luxurious 38-foot Challenger 37GT has an elongated sofa with kick-up footrest which provides the perfect place to just sit back and relax. Additional seating is provided by the swiveling captain’s chairs, all offering a great view of the hide-away retractable 32-inch LCD TV.

The free standing buffet dinette provides a grand view of the campsite under the patio awning, while keeping that “open concept” throughout the coach.

  • Hidden trash receptacle in island
  • Large sofa and recliner combo with hide-a-bed
  • Large walk-through all-in-one bathroom
  • Dual vanities and full length mirror in bathroom
