MH Wish list

Now that many of us are off work for the holidays and its just a mater of time before boredom sets in, how about this.

If you could special order your ideal mh, what would it be like?

Cummins, Cat
Freightliner, Spartan
Length
Number of slides
Roof, basement air

Lets have some fun with this. Pretend and I mean just pretend, I'll buy it for you, but don't get ridiculous.

I'm new to all of this but put a full length slide on each side, 40 ft DP, heated ceramic floor, leather, 50" LCD, wifi and in motion SAT with a killer paint job.

Oh and thanks for picking up the tab.

Thanks for your kind offer. I'll take a 45' Marathon DP, slides front and rear, lots of marble, mahogany, and cream-colored leather, a full-sized shower/tub, all the electronic bells, whistles, and gizmos, and a burgundy/black paint job. Oh, and a '59 Caddy as a toad.

Email me when I can pick it up.

Thank you.

Steve

I'm with Steve - a Marathon! I choose: quad slide with a pearl/buff/charcoal exterior & a trailer to match, hardwood floors, cherry cabinetry with antique glaze, granite counters, floating framed ceiling w/back lighting, suede upholstered furniture, his-n-hers vanity & oversize shower/tub combo in the bath, fireplace in the bedroom, plasma tv's & every technological creature-comfort feature Marathon allows. Oh, & I want the crystal glasses etched with our initials...if it's not too much to ask.

Jim,
I like what you presently have so when you buy your Prevost just drop yours off at the stick house. OH! and the 50 amp plug is right outside the garage in case we are not here. I wouldn't want the batteries to get below their "good" level.

We want all the above of what has been written, but the heated ceramic floors are a must. (You can remodel before you drop of the "B!"

Believe me when I say "Just what we have now." We have looked at many MH but we both say the same, if we want the Night Club look we can always go to one. Do we really need all the bells and whistles.
Today in the Electronic age everything is made to last one day after the warranty runs out. Sometimes simple is better.
Having said all that the DW wants you to park the PREVOST out front and leave the keys in the mailbox. I guess you know who rules the roost in MY MH.

All I ask for different than what I have now is more CCC and towing capacity.

That sounds good to me. Only I would make it 60' long and articulated. With the ability to drop the rear section if needed.

I too tend towards simplification. I almost wish I had "manual" leveling jacks. I hold my breath every time I hit the retract button. A friend has a Newell and the cockpit looks like something out of Star Trek. Way to many touch screens for me. Heck, I got a new phone and I'm still disconnecting the call most of the time.

I love mt Bounder but my wish list would include as many air bags as possible, a side mount radiator, house type refer with a large enough inverter to run it, two recliners instead of the sofa bed with a TV mounted across from them, windows on the side of the bed not behind the bed, two slides in the bedroom. And last but not least, a real service agreement that actually pays for items that need to be repaired/replaced.

I don't need floor heaters cause I ain't gonna be anywhere near where its that cold.

Ya'll keep wishing, there is still stimulus money out there....if we can just find it.
