What SHOULD come standard on all trailers?

OK, let`s hear your opinions on what SHOULD come stock/standard on all trailers but many times do not.

We dropped $700 the day we picked up our RV..
Water hose, wheel chicks, surge protector, leveling pads, too many gadgets to mention.. But out of all of them I guess I would think a water hose would be a basic item that I think should be part of the standard equipment..

And of course the dreaded absence of wall switches in the bedroom........

I wouldn't want to pay for all of those things you listed. I had them from my old trailer.

We gave our first trailer to a deserving young couple with no money, sold the second one for a give away price to another young couple.. We ended up throwing in all the basic equipment which we knew they couldn't afford... So I guess their trailers did come with all those items standard..

I agree with Tracy.

Everything should be an option so I could get the items I want and not items I don't need.

Many dealerships will give you a beginners kit with a few items like sewer and water hose.

I think what we are looking for here are things that are part of the RV itself, such as the previously mentioned wall switches or for example DSI gas/electric water heater as opposed to one with a pilot light. Not things like wheel chocks or sewer hoses that we may already have.

Power tongue jack. Best option ever, but everyone should get to find that out.
