Frustrated, disappointed?

What are you most frustrated or disappointed with About your motorhome?

If you can't get there in a motorhome I don't want to go.

The cost of fuel is my biggest gripe.

The previous owner installed trac bars, anti-sway bar, and sumo shocks. If and when we ever purchase another coach, I will be pissed if I have to pay for those, they should come stock for the price we pay for our RV's.

It used to be there was not enough time off to enjoy it more, but since we retired not so much anymore!

Neither, I think if you've done your due diligence in research, floor plans, mfgrs. etc, and realize up front going in that yes, you'll have things needing fixed, diesel fuel isn't cheap, not everything will be as you want it, that you'll be able to fully enjoy the RV experience. For example with our unit the DW really wanted a free standing table, well that was just not possible from the factory. Well I've found a 36" round free standing table I can put in myself and it's just what she wanted. So for around $200 and a little time it's now exactly what we wanted. So little modification can go a long way also.

We went from a 1993 Bounder to a 2001 Bounder and our biggest disappointment was the lack of storage space. The '93 was far better in that area. Two slides and an engine with a little more pep sort of makes up for the loss of storage.
If you have friends who make you laugh, spend lots of time with them.

Perceived lack of engine power. I have a Cummins ISC 350HP, could always use more power (as Tim the Tool Man said)

Frustrated she is in the shop getting leaky front power gear levelers replaced and parts won't be there until Nov 4! Happy extended warranty is taking care of expense and she is getting those front legs replaced. I won't have to clean up after her every time we level and remember to top off hydraulic tanks.

Best answer of all. I feel the same. We bought our first coach a few months before my Dad passed away and he had too many health issues to travel. He would have loved it.
