Brinkley RV is setting new quality standards for luxury RVs — and it’s all because they are being directed by you!

I was fortunate enough to write one of the first-ever blog articles on Brinkley’s 1st 5th wheel — the Brinkley Z 2900.

Seeing how Brinkley took your comments on the Z 2900 — and the other great Brinkley 5th wheels and travel trailers — and is now applying them to the new Z 3400 shows they really do want to make campers that have all the features you want. I’m impressed.

The Z 3400 has all of these innovative features because of your innovative comments — so keep them coming. What do you think? Let Brinkley know.  Believe me, they truly are listening, so be sure to give Brinkley RV your feedback.

How much does a Brinkley Model Z 3400 Cost?

A Brinkley Model Z 3400 has an MSRP price of $121,333

MSRP, (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is only that — a suggestion. RV dealers can choose to make the price higher or lower.

Dealers buy new RVs from manufacturers and then sell them to you. Some dealers, like Bish’s RV, are able to get great deals from the RV manufacturers because they are able to buy lots of the same types of RVs in bulk.

If a dealer is honest, they will then pass those cost savings on to you, instead of trying to milk you for as much money as they can.

It’s very possible you will be able to buy a new Brinkley Z 3400 for under the MSRP of $121,333.

Bish’s RV is a large-volume RV dealer and typically is able to offer RVs below MSRP price, including Brinkley Fifth Wheels.

Z 3400 Mega-Storage

Pass thru Storage Brinkley Z 3400

You know what they say, there’s no such thing as too much storage, and boy, does the Z 3400 take that to heart. This fifth wheel is a masterclass in making every inch count.

The amount of storage in the Z 3400 is nothing short of astounding. Everywhere you turn in this camper, there’s a smartly positioned compartment, be it cabinets, drawers, or cleverly designed furniture that doubles up as storage. It’s like a treasure hunt, but instead of treasure, you find more and more space!

And if you think the inside is impressive, wait until you see the outside. The Z 3400 doesn’t just stop with interior storage; it boasts over 100 cubic feet of exterior storage space, including a sizeable rear compartment. So, bring on all your camping gear – the Z 3400 is ready for it.

Z 3400 Electrical and Solar

solar panels of Z 3400 5th wheel

The Z 3400 is outfitted with a 370-watt solar package, and it’s prepped to handle additional power options should you require more energy alternatives.

The air-conditioning set-up is something Josh the RV Nerd calls a “31,500btu high efficiency cooling system”

Living Room A/C: New 18,000btu direct cooling unit. With basically no duct work in the ceiling it means all the cold air the unit makes goes directly into your living cavity where it’s wanted and needed.

It doesn’t run through ducting in the “attic space” warming a bit before pumping down. Bigger room gets the biggest A/C . Makes sense. 

Bedroom and Bathroom: These rooms share a single 13,500btu mini-ducted system with similar logic.

Since these are smaller rooms they cool more easily. And they only have a single short duct from the bedroom’s air unit to the bathroom to keep both rooms cool 

Another clever “solar feature” of the Z 3400 is found in its windows. The shades come with a reflective radiant barrier backing.

This ingenious design reduces heat transfer or cold drafts through the windows, contributing to the RV’s overall energy efficiency and comfort.

Z 3400 Electrical and Solar Features

  • 370 Watt Solar Panel: A high-capacity solar panel that harnesses solar energy efficiently, ideal for off-grid camping and reducing reliance on external power sources.
  • 50 Amp MMPT Solar Controller (Inverter Prep & Lithium Ready): Advanced solar controller designed for optimal energy management, prepped for inverter installation and compatible with lithium battery setups for enhanced power storage.
  • Front Storage with Space and Accommodations for Up to 5.5k Generator: Spacious front storage area specifically designed to house a generator up to 5.5k, providing ample power backup for all your RV needs.
  • 2nd Smaller AC dedicated to Bedroom and Bathroom: An additional air conditioning unit dedicated to the rear rooms, ensures targeted cooling and enhanced comfort in the back of the camper.
  • Wire Conduit for Aftermarket Upgrades: Built-in wire conduit makes it easier to add aftermarket upgrades and modifications, offering a seamless and safe way to enhance the RV’s capabilities.
  • Window Shades Backed with Reflective Radiant Barrier: The window shades feature a reflective barrier that significantly reduces heat transfer, helping maintain a comfortable temperature inside the RV while also conserving energy.
