Must haves?

Wife and I are fixing to start looking for our full timers 5th wheel. Was curious what other full timers would consider must haves on there trailer. A few things come to mind, would love input on these also.
1. 2 Ac's
2. Heat pump ( to save a little on propane)
3. Hydrallic leveling (not sure if there is a hugh advantage over just electric)
Thanks

Combo unit is the one that is usually disappointing. Our stack pair worked very well. Usually 3 or 4 loads a week and no laundromat.

Thermopane windows if you're going to spend time in the south during the summer.

A generator so your two ACs can be cooling your camper down before you get to your stop for the day.

We love the heat pump. We've never used the propane furnace since we never boondock, always hooked up to power.........a definite propane saver.
