I'd pay more for better quality. I wish we could have the same effect on the RV industry that Nissan, Toyota, and others had on the American auto industry... When I was a kid working in a garage, a car with 80K miles was pretty much done. Now getting 300K out of one is not unheard of. Just about every RV uses the same water heaters, stoves, fridges, etc... and a lot of it's junk... Get the wood out! Fiberglass over luan plywood on the exterior is junk. If you can't keep it in covered storage, it's really not going to last very long. Strengthen the frame... it's not that hard to put the weight where the strength needs to be. Make the gray tanks bigger. One reason I have the model I have is that the bath and galley have their own tanks, so I don't have to drain nearly as often. I'd really like the bathroom tank even bigger. 32 gallons isn't enough, but that could be due to the DW's shower habits...

See ya on the road!
