If I knew then what I know now

We have had our 2004 Seabreeze for nearly 1 1/2 years now, and since it was our first experience with motorhomes after many years in TT's have learned a lot. So with a grand total of 18 months of experience here are some things I would look for in next Motorhome when we are ready to change.

Storage bay doors that hinge from side not top

2 step entry steps

Gas and electric water heater (didn't even check this, all my TT's had it)

Sun visors that can be lowered, not just hinged up and down

Power adjust drivers seat, or at least on that can be raised and lowered

FULL BODY PAINT

Oven (ours originally came with microwave/convection but PO replaced with straight microwave.)

Flat panel TV's

And....maybe less carpet

Not too bad for newbies.

What is your list?

Interesting. My 2007 Sportscoach has everything on your list except the oven. We actually love our convection and would not have another oven in an RV.

Full body paint

Satelite hook up

We changed to flat screen tvs

Our first Mh 2006 36 Seabreeze LX.

We think we pretty much got it right on first try. We are 76 so this is probably one and only.

I'd have bought $150,000 in Goldman Sachs stock instead. Bought mine in '09. Would have seen a nice return as the barbarians made out like ... barbarians.

We have everything we were looking for in a coach, we didn't compromise on our list.

What I would do differently, I would have pulled my telecom stock and retired in 2000 before the market took a hit with the dot coms.

King Bed, Diesel Pusher instead of Gas, Awning with more of a downward slope, dinette table instead of booth, and headlights that actually light up the road.
