Thanks for that... I knew it wasn't just me... I hope you can get it under control or get a second unit without a lot of hassle.

We're doing a new well and several thousand dollars worth of sprinklers and landscaping this year... There went my trailer money for this year. I'll be looking hard again in January for a solution, but the Minister of Finance says the money goes into the yard, first.

We spent last weekend camping with near 100 degree heat. AC (13.5) did fine in full sun, thermal pane windows, Arctic Fox 27T trailer. We had 9 people inside and all were comfortable. Granddaughter took nap in bedroom while we played games and visited. It would have been frustrating if the AC could not keep up.. Hope you get yours working better.

Neighbors spent $40K on their back yard. The value didn't go up at all. Almost like money spent on an RV

I'd actually rather move... and get a place where I could build a nice metal barn for my pickup, trailer, yard junk, etc. However, the railroad I work for moved us 6 times in 16 years... and the Minister of Finance doesn't want to move ever again. Since she has the hardest, boniest little fists in the state of Texas...... well... no...

We spent 4 weeks traveling from home along I-10 to Texas, up to Oklahoma and back home on I-40. Our A/C (13.5k) did well in no shade. We did stop at Camping World and purchased some solar windows shades to help deflect some of that nasty heat.

I guess it all depends on one's personal comfort level. At home, the AC is set to the mid-70s. So if my RV can stay below about 78F, I'm happy. And it always does.
Some folks like to have a walk-in freezer on wheels. It's all personal preference.

If I ever feel like it's not cold enough inside my camper, I just go out and adjust the stabilizer jacks. Then when I go back inside, it feels GREAT!

Having looked around some more... the 28DDBH is still my favorite... Every other manufacturer that makes a nearly identical floor plan has the option for a second A/C unit. I wonder if Winnebago will wake up by early next year... when I'm ready to buy. The well guy is coming today... and will start in a couple of weeks, when the permit is done. The sprinkler guy comes tomorrow to get started. When those things are completed, we'll get the landscapers out for a couple of bids... I can see my whole RV life flashing before my eyes!!! Not really... I'll be selling my current TT about March of next year, and probably buying this one-lung Winnebago... I just hope i don't regret it next summer.

What is it about the 28 that you like so much better than the 33... The bigger bunks?
The 33 has the awesome outside kitchen, 50A service with 2nd AC and the separate bunk room is pretty cool. Also optional fireplace, which is a new "must have" option for me.

Since about 50% of our use is fishing with my 2 grown sons, the larger bunks are the main attraction. I have the equivalent of an outdoor kitchen, with the exceptions of a sink and a fridge... and I can do without those. The 33 is longer than I want, and I'm not wild abut the floor plan. I may end up with one, or, the Minister of Finance may decide we need one with more living space rather than bunks... At that point, all bets are off. My favorite along those lines is made by Grand Design. But then again, it's longer than I want... Aaaaahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just shoot me!!!!!!!!!

A lot can happen by next March... But for now, the 28 is still my favorite.

By the way, I saw somewhere that the new Minis are lighter colored with lighter wood tones inside... is that trend also coming into the Ultra-Lites? My trailer is dark inside. I'd really like it to be lighter.

Thanks all, for replies and keeping me informed...
