Almost forgot as this is one thing I really wanted to forget, but..........
The one thing I really didn't want in my motorhome was the 300lbs. of cat hair accumulated by the original owner. Still trying to get it all out. Unbeleivable what some people will let their $300,000.00 motorhome turn into. It's under the dash, in the vents and ducts, all over the curtains, under the furniture (I don't even want to tell you what else I found under the couch).......................ABSOLUTE PIGS/SLOBS if you asked me.

I don't want carpet. I found no pet hair, but I found gobs of just plain dirt. Pummy dust from Idaho and Oregon no doubt that fine stuff that gets everywhere even between the interior walls and the metal. I just put on a dust mask and used the air compressor blew the stuff away.

I wouldn't mind getting rid of my hard mattress, so when I get up in the morning I can walk in the upright position. Will get a sleep number. Love everything else.

Didn't like the king bed. Too big for us and no night table on DW,s side. Took it out and had a cabinet shop make a table to match the other side. Now she has room to get in and out of bed much easier and bedside table for her stuff. Easy conversion. Best thing we've done to the coach. Other than that nothing I can think of to get rid of. Maybe more stuff to add. Love our coach.

Bless you CampDaven, I am reading though these folks complaining about stuff on their mobile mansions and just shaking my head. I suppose it is different when one actually lives in their RV for months on end. But whoa! I sure surprises me.

The two things that bug me the most about my coach is the POS 3M protective coating on the front cap and a bed that is always in the way and only used for 8 hours or less during the night. I wished that the bedroom had a Murphy Bed whereby the room could be used as a office or den during the day.

But it is what it is and I still LOVE the 2002 Monaco Windsor which is a hell of a coach for the money.

I think this is where a lot of misunderstanding takes place. It IS different when one lives full time in their coach. They're not just out for a camping weekend with the kids and they want to have all the comforts of "home" while living on the road.

For us, the W/D is a must have and I'd like to have a dishwasher (just not sure I'm willing to lose the cabinet space).
I've seen where some folks have removed their oven and installed a dishwasher in its place. No lost cabinet space.

X1000 !!!

You forgot to mention the light it puts out... even when "off". Right next to DW's pillow. Ours has a push button type on/off switch so any bump with a pillow, etc in the middle of the night and whamo! We've got music (or static) blasting. Waking up from a dead sleep to the sound of loud static can really test one's ability to reason quickly

It's funny now, but truthfully Winnie did some pretty weak engineering in this example.
