I would say a lot of mods people do actually hurt the resale of the unit. maybe you need more space so you take out a chair and add cabinets, the person looking to buy it has 3 kids and needs more seating room than anything else. Unless your going to live in it or keep the thing for a long time I just don't see the point in spending your time and money changing a lot of stuff.

Me too! I had an Aunt that would not ever use the stove or oven because she thought it would increase the trade-in value.

The other side of upgrading an older coach is personal. Many years ago a friend bought an old Bluebird MH, took it to the factory and had the interior gutted and rebuild the way he and his wife wanted; then had them redo the chassis. When it was done it looked great, was exactly what they wanted. A side benefit was, they had their dream MH, but paid taxes on a 20 yr old one.
Would they ever get any upgrade money back, no, not a chance; but it was theirs.
