Designed to bring comfort and safety to long road trips, the Denali has a heated and enclosed underbelly, EX lube axles and radial tires. Denali’s spare tire comes with a carrier and cover. Its expanded turning radius front cap features Eye Sight Hitch Vision with LED lights. Tinted safety windows provide privacy and the patio light makes it easy to see your porch at night. The 15’ sprayer hose comes with Quick Connect. Conveniently, Denali’s TV cable and electrical hook-ups are located under the awning. For ultimate quality, you can request CSA construction, Seal and State Seal (where applicable).
Denali’s kitchen makes cooking meals more convenient than buying them. Located at the kitchen island, the under-mount kitchen sink features a high neck faucet with a sprayer. You can prepare your food on the solid surface countertops and fry vegetables on the three-burner cooktop. For desert, you can bake a batch of cookies in the oven. If you’re too lazy to cook, you can always heat up a TV dinner in the microwave. Leftovers can be stored in the eight-cubic-foot refrigerator. To add glamour to the space, the kitchen features a mosaic tile backsplash and stylish dinette with pull out drawers. All drawers have ball bearing drawer guides and all cabinetry has brushed nickel hardware and fixtures.

After a big meal, you’ll probably need some relaxation time. The living room is the perfect place to kick back. Equipped with a Media Center that features an LED TV and four speakers with zone switch, you can watch your favorite movie from the comfort of your 82” sofa or one of two comfy recliners. With ample seating space, you won’t have to fight your family members for a spot on the couch. The Media Center features a Blue Tooth Stereo with USB and Aux. The Denali is also equipped with Satellite and Cable prep. Adding beauty and warmth to the space, the Barrel Ceiling features maple trim and there’s a residential carpet and premium flooring. When it comes to storage, you won’t run out of room to hide your clothes and electronics – there’s an overhead compartment above the recliners and entertainment center. The Dutchmen Denali comes with a lot of options – for an extra price, you can request frameless dual pane windows, fireplace and central vacuum system.
Before you tuck yourself into bed, you’ll want to make a trip to the bathroom. Equipped with the necessities, the bathroom has everything you need to groom and wash. It features a porcelain foot flush toilet and a skylight above the tub. The counter space gives you ample room to lay out your toiletries and comfortably wash up. You can store toiletries in the medicine cabinet or overhead compartment.
When you’re ready to recharge, take a trip to your bedroom. Spacious and cozy, it’s the perfect place to recharge. Equipped with a beautiful wardrobe, dresser and overhead compartment, you won’t run out of space to keep your clothes and accessories. The bathroom features washer/dryer prep, which means you can do your laundry comfortably at home, rather than dedicating half the day to a Laundromat. The king-size bed let’s you sprawl out as wide as you want, providing more than enough room for you and your partner.
