What Elese To Add To New Trailer?

When we bought our 28u, the trailer came with a foam mattress. Upgrading to a mattress with springs in it was our first upgrade. Shortly after that we added a 3inch memory foam to make the new mattress usable. Our next upgrade will be a fantastic fan for the bedroom. Enjoy the summer.

The Fantastic Fan has much larger fan blades than the small (about 5") blades on the standard fan. It usually has 3 speeds and is very quiet and sounds like "quality" . Someone else mentioned changing out the mattress. That too is a very good idea. We have an i-comfort memory foam mattress and its great but if you like hard mattresses it probably would not be the best fit.

On our 2011 28U we added the Fantastic fan in the bedroom, put firmer foam into dinette cushion seats, Battery LED lights into both sides of the storage ahtches, cross bar on screen door, wifi booster for laptop, command strips for mounting pictures,battery drill for stabilizers, Roto-Chocks (they are great).

There are two roof vents on the 26RLS. The bathroom one does have a large fan in the opening. The vent in the back of the trailer is just a vent I believe. I don't think it has any kind of fan.

Is it possible to easily install a fan in this vent? Is there already an outlet there that you could plug the fan in to?

We bought a similar unit a couple of years ago. We ditched the cheap uncomfortable chairs and bought $275 recliners (on sale) at LZ boy. You have to be careful to get ones small enough to fit the space. We also bought a 4" memory foam mattress topper. Both were well worth the money.

Our 2011 Silverado has a Ranch Hand replacement front end with a receiver hitch, so we'll likely put the bikes on the front of the truck with a Thule 2" bike rack.

If you plan to camp south of the masson/dixion line, get a second ac installed.

We ordered our 26RLS with the 15K A/C unit. It worked wonderful last summer in Dodge City, KS at 113 degree weather.


We had the dealer install a second water pump switch in the bathroom so you can use the facilities without having to open both doors to turn on the pump at the command center while the slide out is in the travel position. The 26RLS you can't access the kitchen from the bedroom door. We do quite a bit of cross country travel so this has been a great addition.
We also had them add a wall switch for the fan in the bathroom.

Enjoy your new TT. I know we have enjoyed ours.
