Re Jay Flight Swift SLX 145RB Planning mods

Just sold our 14ft Bigfoot after 6 years which was Very basic to keep weight down also very low maintenance (Towed with VW Jetta deisel 50000km)
Coleman propane stove + electric hob. No water tanks. We used plastic water jugs. 110v lights & Plugs also 12v interior lights, Porta-potty
Most of our RVing is done in campsites with electric so we use a ceramic heater. No maintenance there
If we're off grid we have a mr heater buddy
As for hot water we have been using the showers in campsites and are quite capable of boiling the kettle for dishes etc.
Have talked to many people who have never used the shower in their rv.

All we really wanted was a bed at one end and a dinet without taking it down to make the bed.
Unfortunately theres no such animal without all this other stuff that all seems to need maintenance, winterizing
So we figure on taking out the stuff we dont need.
Does this answer your question
