what didnít you get that you wish you had?

So, when you were shopping for your RV, are there any features you wish youíd gotten at the time that you didnít? Particularly things that you canít really add later?

My trailer has more features then I was looking for, but it was at a really good price. So I ended up with more then I was looking for.
I know the voices in my head arenít real, but man, do they ever come up with some great ideas.

One big storage bin, to put things like fishing poles, grill, outdoor rug, folding table, camp chairs, firewood, etc.. My rig has only one medium sized bin, and all the rest are smaller and not that functional.

We planned our purchase very carefully, and we're happy with our 26BH.

We've made modifications to it, including a substantial redesign of the interior. But all were part of the original plan.

Generally we got what we wanted. Would love to have a chauffeur, but that just was not in the cards.

I added a few additional features ourselves, such as additional a bunch of 12 volt power points and made the two front cargo holds into a full pass through.

On the travel trailer, we should have gotten the 2nd AC unit. We got it with "2nd AC prep", so if we had kept it, installing the second unit was a top priority. I regretted that pretty early on, but we were able to make due for the time we owned it.

That's about it.

On the motorhome, we had already learned from the trailer what we could and could not live without and where we were willing to compromise. So we didn't compromise much and got what we wanted. The only thing I kind of wish for in the MH is recliners in the living room. But I'll eventually install my own, and they'll likely be higher quality than what Jayco puts in for their "theater seating" option.

Every now and again, I have a twinge of regret that we didn't go with a diesel Super C, but no way that would have fit in the budget. And you gotta have goals right?

-2018 Greyhawk 29MV
-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (Primary Toad)
-1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ (Secondary Toad)
-2014 Jay Flight 28BHBE & Ram 2500 6.4L CC 4x4 (sold)

Dual pane windows and hydraulic leveling.

Windows - Wasn't really aware of them at the time we purchased, never thought to research windows. That said, reviews on them seem to be mixed, so going to install some heat reflecting film and consider it done.

Leveling - Seismic at the time only came with the electric stuff.
