2014 Lifestyle Luxury LS32FW Review
Luxurious fifth wheel has it all
With 10 floorplans to choose from, we decided to explore the LS32FW. With a massive living room and an entertainment center that might put your current one to shame, it’s a great option for travelling workers and explorers. The LS32FW has an exterior length of 34.33 feet, exterior width of 96 inches and exterior height of 156 inches. It has a dry weight of 12, 565 lbs, payload capacity of 4, 070 lbs and hitch weight of 2, 635 lbs. For water, the LS32FW has one fresh water holding tank with a total fresh water capacity of 84 gallons, along with gray water holding capacity of 72 gallons and black water capacity of 38 gallons. As well, it comes standard with two propane tanks with capacities of 14.2 gallons each.
Lifestyle Luxury’s double stacked box steel tube frames are designed and constructed in-house. The steel tube chassis is stacked 12 inches, while its aluminum superstructure is welded with heavy gauge. The slideout floors are fully insulated and the roof features Plywood Roof Decking with fiberglass insulation.
The entrance doors open up to a picturesque kitchen. Its HPL wood flooring matches its hardwood cabinetry. For extra space and a more residential feel, request a kitchen island cabinet, which features a Corian countertop. Corian countertops come with a beautiful backsplash that might motivate lazy members of the house to cook and possibly clean up after themselves. The recessed range comes with a Corian flush mount insert and a hidden stowing compartment. If you won’t use the oven, then you can request a cooktop with doors below, instead of the oven. The residential brushed nickel one-lever faucet comes with a sprayer. Store food in the Norcold eight-cubic-foot refrigerator and reheat it quickly in the 30” microwave. Enjoy your meals at the freestanding dinette table, equipped with four chairs – two come with storage and two fold up to reserve space when necessary. With plenty of walking space, the kitchen can easily accommodate a family of four. One can prepare the meat, one can prepare the salad, one can bake desert and once can wash the dishes.
After a heavy dinner, you might be tempted to collapse on the 72” Luxury hide-a-bed sofa, located in the living room. Its nailhead trim compliments the cherry hardwood doors, drawers and cabinets throughout the space. It even features cherry hardwood interior hallway steps. All cabinets have hidden hinges and the drawer guides come with full extension ball bearing guides. If you want to kick back on the sofa with a newspaper, why not utilize one of two luxury recliners? You can even pop your beer in the cup holder. Windows throughout the space feature residential window treatments, cherry hardwood trim and day/night shades. The residential nylon carpet is equipped with stain protection, so you don’t have to panic over spilled drinks.

Those who obsess over electronics will fall in love with the LS32FW’s entertainment system. Samsung is Lifestyle’s brand of choice, which means you get a 40” Samsung LED HD television and a Samsung 5.1 home theater system, equipped with a subwoofer. The home theater system supports FM, CD and DVD. A Winegard TV antenna with a power booster and signal monitor comes standard. The satellite prep is equipped with and RG-6 cable, which provides a docking center to the living room and to the bedroom. On humid days, get the air moving with the ceiling fan and on cold days, turn on the electric fireplace and warm your toes.
Just as luxurious as the kitchen and almost as spacious, the bathroom is a cozy place to bathe and groom. The one-piece fiberglass shower provides you ample room to twist and scrub. It is equipped with a removable, handheld, brushed nickel shower head. Its standard features include heat and A/C ducts and Corian countertops with an undermount sink. The one-lever faucet is made of brushed nickel, while the toilet and sink feature water shut-off valves.
With plenty of walking space and a privacy door, the Master Bedroom is the perfect place to escape for the night. The two mirrored wardrobe doors are framed in cherry wood. If requested, one can be replaced with a washer option. The queen bed features a pillow-top mattress is equipped with a residential comforter and pillows. If you really love to sprawl out in bed, then request a king-size, instead. You can also request a 26” LCD HD TV.
The Lifestyle Luxury LS32FW is available for around $95,000. For more information visit http://www.lifestylelrv.com/.
