How about a roof that is able to absorb or block out the sound of rain when it hits your roof.
It rains a lot here and it can be so loud you can't hear the TV. How about a built in tracking system installed at the factory so it can't be removed. How about a leak proof seal that guarantees that the trailer won't leak for xnumber of years. My last two pairs of hiking boots were able to pull this off. Why not a trailer maker.

Bug screens over the furnace and water heater exhaust vents, and also covering the ventilation slots on the exterior refrigerator panel.

1. Way to run wires for accessories through ceiling and walls for things like ceiling fans.
2. Pre-run wires for awnings optional wind sensor
3. Whole coach water filtration
4. Wall switches ESPECIALLY in bunk areas which are designed for kids!
5. Washer/dryer hookups on 50A coaches
6. Outside hot / cold water faucet with coiled hose and spray attachment.
7. Wiring and antenna for outside WI-FI connection.
8. central utility center for water, dump valves etc.
9. silencing kit with accumulator tank for water pump.
10. Under trailer storage box for items like leveling planks of wood.
11. custom fit Cover
12. Something to help level, attached level indicators, optional auto leveling....
13. BAL (type) stabilizers
14. LED lights

1. Appearance package (like an aluminum rear bumper cover)
2. Security options (motion sensor light, alarm system, built in security cable etc)
3. Off-Grid options which include solar panels, inverter, etc.

There's probably more, but I just increased the cost of the trailer thousands!

Ladder on anything bigger than a pop-up! How can you perform semi-annual cleaning and/or maintenance checks for caulking cracks etc etc without a ladder to get up there (we don't want to use a portable one) LOL....

I agree with a lot of the others including the leveling bubbles, vent covers, and screen door plastic.

My two biggest that I can think of are digital thermostats and one that is really bugging me right now is lights in the outside storage compartments. I've tried LED battery ones and haven't been happy with what I've tried so far. Still looking for a way to get power there (preferably 12-volt) without coming up through the floor.

I won't buy anything from the dealer (or anywhere else) without knowing the cost of these items elswhere......case and point

Sewer hose. The dealer dinged me over $60 for a sewer hose similar to the RhinoFlex. Told me the Rhino was WAY more money.........so I bought it. Walked into Canadian tire last week and found the new RhinoFlex hose on sale for $40........Thankfully I never opened the box from the dealer and I'll be returning it.

30 amp cable. Dealer had there's on sale for $50 (50') Best price I could find elsewhere was $55 for 25'. It definitely pays to know prices.........

Besides many that were already mentioned, the things that I found I needed to install or add.
1) Power outlet for laptop conveniently located in the dinette area.
2) Wall clock.
3) Magazine rack.
4) Bin or pocket near the entry door for flash light, insect repellant & brush to clean off your shoes before coming inside.
5) Clothes hooks in the bathroom.
6) Door stop & hook to hold bathroom door open.
7) We also bought plastic bins that fit in the overhead cupboards to store things in. Much easier to find things and not have them come tumbling out at you the first time you open the doors after driving.
