Hard to only pick two, but first would be the comfortable ride. Had a class C and then an A Gasser and both of them made driving a full time occupation. Since getting the DP, driving is easier and more enjoyable.
Second would have to be all the room with the slide. I don't like being cramped so with only me and the dog, there is all the room I need.

Bunk beds mean a separate living area for the kids. DW and I can now stay up and watch a movie after bed time. Also, we don't have to convert a dinette or a couch every day.

A bathroom - of course we had this on our last rig as well but I remember the pop-up without one and the treks to the campground bathroom and the hope it would be clean.

All the light-giving and view-enabling glass makes being in this Atrium just wonderful... add in the views from the bedroom, three sliders, and the Freightliner/Cat/Allison combo and wow... we feel so blessed. Just found this rig (our first motorhome) and looking forward to many new adventures. Taking delivery tomorrow - so excited. Much to learn and see and many new friends to make. Life is grand.

Went from 30 foot class C on an F450 chassis, no slideouts to an F53 class A (gas still) with 2 slide outs.

I like the added room of the slideouts and,
The quieter nicer ride of the new chassis.

The view from the driver's seat...all the while, listening to the deep rumble of the 8.9L cummins.

Lault... thanks for your comments. Last night we discovered the rig has bead lights all over the place... including the atrium slider... not sure if this is common on Class As or not, but it sure makes for a warm glow throughout the coach in the evening... living room is really big... slider on each side (3 total including the bedroom)... the kitchen & sofa slider on the right side of the picture hadn't even been moved yet out in this picture. I like the french door into the bedroom... which also has a shade on it if desired. bead lighting all around the bedroom as well. We really like the double door Norcold fridge & freezer unit... this puppy is huge. Original owner did so many cool things on this rig. One great thing about buying a formerly owned rig, if the former owner was a techie and added a lot of cool stuff... the next owner inherits that cool stuff.

I'm just too new...

...to not appreciate the basics.

My top two, that I give thanks for every time we take a trip:

1. My own private bathroom. Never set foot in a public one on a trip and now using public ones just seems so icky.

2. Heat in the morning when I get out of bed to use my own private bathroom.

We really love our motor home but here are some stand outs.

1. Motosat internet when you really have to get on and nothing else works.
2. Double pane windows, thick walls and roof with thick insullation. Keeps noise and too hot and too cold out.
3. Diesel hot water so you can shower as long as you want with hot water.
4. Our added See Level tank meeter that actually works accurately so we know how full we are and how empty, exactly. Great!!!! for dry camping.
5. Auto generator. Great feature. Kicks on when needed. No worries.
