We have most of the options including the ledgestone fireplace and king bed. Trust me it is beautiful inside and out and even has washer/dryer hookups, two ac units and 50 amp service. My wife is claustrophobic and doesn't like the reduced headroom of a 5er so we bought this TT. It has full height ceilings (7'). I had to upgrade my TV suspension with a Roadmaster kit, but all is well...
What is your TV? That TT has a GVRW of nearly 11K!

And now for something completely different. Didn't buy it for cars specifically, primary use is planned to be boats. Nfld ferry is not cheap. With this new setup im in the $700 Cdn range.

You can go on the Marine Atlantic web site and get all the information you need. You are charged by the foot and for the occupants of the vehicle. When you book ahead on line you pay the full amount. There is fuel surcharge added that may be refunded according to the price of fuel on the date of travel. Our combination is 52' with bicycles mounted on the front of the tv. The Marine Atlantic personnel are extremely friendly, they measured us at 50' so we got a refund for that.
It is a big beautiful Province and you need a minimum of 3 weeks to see it and make the price for the Ferry worth while. As they say in "Noofinland", "fill yer boots".

10.5 MPG sounds pretty good to me that's for sure. Especially if you have a 4:10 diff. I was going to check out the commecial RV delivery thing but didn't think that they would hire Canadians (according to some blogs). I guess that's not true. Absolute best of luck!!!
