Advise. Pulling trigger tomorrow.

So we are going to pull the trigger tomorrow on a 377rlbh. Have to choose.

One has heat pump, awning toppers, and thermo pane windows with dealer installed generator. $2,000 more than option two.

The other would have dealer installed rear camera, direct TV satellite traveler dish, and generator.

I know I can add the rear camera and the satellite dish later for about $2000 more. Then I would have everything I would want. I currently have a satellite dish that I manual set up and carry around so it's not like I would truly do without.

Thoughts?

Since you already have a dish, go for the first one...

If you use it on a regular basis I would go with option 1 as well. You won't regret having the thermal windows or the heat-pump.

If you ever camp in cold weather you'll really appreciate the thermo pane windows.

I had the same questions when we did an order out for our 377 and every single reply to the post suggested that we definitely pay the difference for the thermal pane windows! I would also suggest option #1

Thanks. We plan on camping year round possible full timing for a couple years until our son is 10-11.

Option one it is. I was really debating it but I think I would regret not getting the thermo pane windows. I just REALLY wanted the auto dish, but I can get it on amazon and find a retired RV mechanic to help me install it for couple hundred bucks. Backup camera is prewired. I should be able to knock that out on a Saturday morning.

The thermal windows are a great addition, but, that heat pump, for the cost of the upgrade is AMAZING for late season camping.

We love ours - it's nice, dry heat, and it works with the quickness. Combined with the fireplace, and thermal windows in our 38FLSA, we have no "cooler weather" issues.

We used our Genset a few times this year, and it's nice to have also. We took the 5'er boondocking and stayed in a VERY remote location for almost 7 days on a single tank of water and 21 gals of fuel for the genset.


N-JOY and Good luck with the new camper!!!!
