I currently own a 2021 Interstate 24GT. This is our first rig and we love just about everything about it. While we’re relatively young (40) and really enjoy the ease of use afforded by the compact form factor of the class b setup, we wouldn’t mind just a bit more space, particularly for the loo and shower.
Enter the Atlas into our consideration for a trade. It would have most of what we already know and and love, is nominally larger, is a relatively immaterial cost difference, and seems like the perfect trade up… except for the lack of levelers. I’m OCD and am not comfortable with the idea of an unleveled setup. I know I can attempt my best leveling job with blocks/ramps, but to me, that kind of negates a great deal of the convenience and ease of use of the class b. These are unnecessary luxury items, if we’re being honest; I’m not into this game for much manual labor during setup.
All to ask those who may already have gone through this with the Atlas or have at least been more successful in their research on the topic: can hydraulic levelers similar to those I have on my Interstate be retrofitted/added to the Atlas aftermarket? I’ve found very minimal responses to this question in searching. I’ve seen posters alluding to systems not working because of some battery/ancillary equipment location in the Atlas. Is this a non-starter? Please someone tell me you’ve had success in adding hydraulic levelers to the Atlas. I’m not concerned much with the expense (though I’d be interested in knowing roughly what I’m in for). I just want that sweet, sweet (and seemingly forbidden) Atlas+leveler combo.
The other trade up we’re considering is a Newmar Super Star 3746 but that’s a whole new ballpark of expense and effort. I’m really hoping I can find a way to combine the Atlas and the auto leveling we already know and love.
