Are you happy with what you've got?

Often we buy our RV, then find we're not satisfied because we need to:
1) Purchase different configuration (larger, smaller, change layout)
2) Upgrade/downgrade the TV or rig
3) Make major (not cosmetic) modifications

How happy are you with what you NOW have OR what is required to 'get it right'? Feel free to add comments on what you've done or plan to do, and 'lessons learned':

We are pleased with our TT, no changes there (wanted the outdoor kitchen, a bed accessible from both sides, bunks for guests or storage, small enough to get into most California campgrounds). We upgraded our TV, and so glad we did. Nothing further planned, and looking forward to cresting the Rockies.

For us the smaller size is a perfect fit. We had several size-related criteria to ensure we could store at the house. As it's just the two of us the simple layout also works well. We've made a couple of small modifications at this point - added gas struts to hold the bed up when accessing storage and a vent fan for the fridge. One upcoming mod is to add a couple of LED reading lights at the head of the bed. The TV doesn't really work too hard either and we've found that we can tow long distances with ease making it a good combo for getting from point A to point B quickly. So all in all we are very pleased with the set up and look forward to many years of traveling and camping with it.

Yes, very happy. But I STILL look at the 5ers!


One day...one day.

I believe I will be happy with my current unit. Hard to say since I haven't used it yet. Of course I thought I would be happy with my last one, so who can really say.

Very happy with both of my RVs:
1) The Mercedes car soft top is perfect for a weekend outing and a stay at a hotel.
2) The Boxer puppy is great for my fitness program and is well mannered and civil.

Time to go back to work on my house before the rains come.

I am happy with the two upgrades I made this summer (new TT & TV) but still I can't help thinking that someday I'll be touring the country in a Class A Diesel or maybe driving an F-350 with a huge 5er tagging along behind.

This is our 3rd MH and we've figured out that no one rig has it all. Every one of our MHs has something we like that others don't have. We would have to design and configure a custom MH to get exactly what we want as every one is a compromise in one way or another. However, we've arrived at the best we can do with the resources available to us. Have only made a few minor mods to this one so far.

It's by far the best ride we've had. The other two rigs rode like bread trucks but this one is a nice compromise.

We prefer opposing couch/dinette configuration but those layouts always have a small galley. Therefore a bigger galley on this one but couch/dinette are on the same side. Oh well, really happy with it so far and now we've got enough miles on it to have worked out the kinks.

We really do love our configuration, but to he honest I wished we had gone with a slide out. It gets a little cramped in between the kitchen and dinette.

Other than that we love ours.

Our 24 FBS is just right for now. We bought our ram so we could pick a different TT. I can see us moving to a 26BHS in a couple of years.
