YOUR RV - What do you LOVE

I'm just curious.
What features do you LOVE about your RV?

Conversely, what are you not happy with?

Phil, I think DW and I both would say the theatre seating in front of the large TV and the built in dishwasher. Conversely, I don't like flushing the RV toilet with the vent fan on high. I've got to learn to crack the door when I do this for an air source.

Wow. A dishwasher. That's cool.
My DW (48 yrs) likes TV. Do you have satellite?

The best feature the DW and I like is the RV itself and the fact that it is our get a way, especially in the winter months!

I agree. Just having the RV for a getaway is so great!
And the terrific people you meet along the way is amazing!

We tried the Dish network, pay as you go but lost interest and sold it here on the forum. We don't watch much TV (a little MeTV with Perry Mason) and all the college football we can get.
Yes, a dishwasher. We had a portable dishwasher in the Raptor. Simply took the casters off and set it by the W/D connection and away you go.

We like:
  1. the inside hatch to the pass-through storage area that serves as a laundry chute
  2. the mounting of the trailer floor above the wheels so there is no lost space inside the trailer for wheel wells
  3. a swivel-mounted light on each side at the head of the bed instead of one fixed light in the middle
  4. ample storage for the size of the TT
  5. ducting of AC and heat for better distribution and control
  6. putting the control panel right by the door
Improvements we would like to see:
  1. a few more conveniently located electric outlets
  2. the way the factory chose to affix the bathroom wardrobe closet upper shelf; instead of stapling the shelf to the top of the horizontal supports mounted on the sidewalls, the shelf was stapled to the underside; put the shelf on top of the supports
  3. move the in-feed line and check valve for the black water tank flush out of the clothes closet; put it back under the bathroom sink
  4. better OEM tires (enough said!)
  5. a walk-in shower stall instead of a bathtub
  6. another drawer in the kitchen (it looks as if, due to the configuration of plumbing, it would have to be half-width, which would be OK)
  7. vent the hood properly, don't recirculate

Large residential shower and a bathroom large enough that the door can be shut while you sit on the throne without hitting your knees.

Next one will have a ceiling fan... that's about the only thing I wish we had that this trailer doesn't well that and a king bed..

We like our rear kitchen floorplan. Lots of counter space and cupboards. Access to the fridge, sink and bathroom without having to open a slide for lunch stops is very nice.

Most wanted: Would like to have drawers under the dinette seats for pots and pan storage.

Love may be a little strong.

We like the lack of the newer features, like auto leveling. Theres enough to fiddle with without extra complication and grief.

The garage is a big plus. Carry the ride du jour and use it for storage, Spendide washer/dryer combo, mud room, etc.

The two GC batts and LED lights have made it more usable when boondocking, along with the electric/gas fridge instead of an AC only fridge. I really like (OK...maybe love) the portable ice maker.

The electric, faux fireplace is kind of handy when there is AC power. Practical bling...

The outside fridge (AC only) is handy at times.

The trailer GW is only 12,600#. About as light as we could find in a 5th wheel toy hauler.

Im a journey guy, but appreciate the comfort at the destination compared to the popup, pickup camper we had before.

The wifey likes the interior layout and the bathroom. Me, too.
