I just got back from hershey after spending two entire days combing through the show I noticed a few things.
Everyone seems to want more space in every unit. That usually translates to slides. MANY of the coaches and trailers i looked at simply had slides that gave a much wider floor. Not really good USE of the space mind you. Just more space.
I'd like to see the manufacturers build some coaches (even as options) that would allow full use with the slides in AND out without too severe a compromise.
Interior fittings and workmanship is awful! Unless you pay for a top brand/top model everything is the same. Now I do not fault them for buying the same appliances, etc. But the installation, woodwork, trim, etc. Is just sub-standard. All very cheaply done. And yes, I understand the need for profit.
I noticed a LOT of 2 burner stoves in large coaches...really? And a small sink??? I know most people are going exclusively to campgrounds and plugging in, but does that mean they don't want to cook??
My 23'8" low profile Class A has 4 burners!! And a convection microwave that I have used as an oven.
Getting to class A low profile and compact. If you want something similar to what I have now the closest you can get is a Reyo/Via at 25 feet. Though it's not really low profile. My coach is 99" high at the A/C. The Reyo/Via is much taller. With today's increase in fuel cost, you'd think more efficient would be a good idea. I get 10-12mpg and it's a 1991! I am SURE with today's current engine/drivetrain technology we could do much better, or at least the same.
OK, soapbox mode off.
All in all, the show was fun!
