So far I'm happy with all options and we've had no real issues thus far other than the extended foot rest on one of the theater seats won't go back in - but I haven't looked at it deeper yet.
I recommend the heat pump 110% - I'm amazed at how much heat it pumps out and how quickly this coach warms up. The fireplace is amazing as well - it looks nice but it really kicks out the heat!
The furniture is all very nice and the upgraded full memory foam mattresses are very nice...a little on the firm side, but very comfortable. We're adding a pillow topper regardless, which will make it extremely cozy.
Haven't used the convection oven yet, but I've heard from MANY people that rave about it - many use only the convection for cooking and don't turn on their ovens at all, so I'm looking forward to using it. We cook a lot so having a well stocked & efficient kitchen is very important.
That said, I'm happy with the residential refer thus far as well. Time will tell as to how it holds up with travelling, but having a full size fridge with ice maker and water dispenser sure is nice. It's efficient as well, so I believe boondocking with it will work out well as we add some solar.
Backup camera is a nice add on - I thought it was JUST the camera and I'd have to wire up my monitor myself in the tow vehicle but it's actually a wireless unit, so you get the screen for your tow vehicle and just plug it into 12v power and away you go! It has a microphone on it also so you can easily hear people yelling STOP before you hit the tree
Reality is I'm still looking out the window, using mirrors and listening to people direct me far more than I'm looking at the backup camera so of all the features I'd say this is the least effective add thus far. But time will tell.
Haven't used the 2nd AC, but I imagine it will be very nice when we make it to the higher temps.
Manual cord real is very nice for storing the bulky shore power cord, very convenient.
Other than testing, we haven't used the generator yet but I'm sure it will be quite useful when we boondock. I'm planning on adding extensive solar so ideally we won't need it, but the times when we do need it I'll be glad I have it.
I believe the thermal pane windows are a nice upgrade. Hard to tell without comparing, but I think the energy savings will be worth it. They are sharp looking and have 'Insulated Window' stickers on them. Judging by how well the coach heats up and stays comfortable, I think they are worth it - and there are a lot of windows, which is one of the reasons we loved this design. It's very bright in the living areas, but then the black out shades gives you quick and effective privacy/darkness.
We like the 2nd awning - just more outside shade, and time will also tell on the slideout awnings. After watching others clean off their slides before pulling them in, I think it's a nice add.
The convenience center is very nice and super easy to use, and storage in this thing is quite amazing. So overall we're extremely happy thus far. I just hope we don't have any issues with the Auto Leveling system as I've seen many others have.
Feel free to ask any further questions, I'm happy to answer whatever I can, post pics, etc!
