Al, for me and this is just my opinion --- Its the solid surface counter tops thru the entire coach, the power cord reel and the chrome package. Those are ONLY available with the LX package and can't be added easily after the fact, if at all. The 7.0 GEN is nice but even the factory guy told me the only real reason they have it is due to competition having them, the 5.5 would totally run everything on the coach just fine. Also, on the A/C the new anniversary adds both of them with a heat pump where as my LX package only has the heat pump on the rear A/C unit. But you are right the fireplace gives plenty of extra warm in the coach and from what I understand the electric heater will not even warm if outside air temp is below 40, so you have to run the gas furnace at that point. I have ran all three heat sources tho and all warm the coach very well.

I have the LX and think it is worth it for the items mentioned above.
Also, the fireplace throws considerable heat. I haven't been in anything below 40 yet but I have not even put the heat pumps on either (nor the furnace). Very happy with the fireplace. It it does get below 32 I would want to run the furnace periodically to keep the basement/pipes from freeze potential.
