I almost forgot about two other additions to our coach. This awning clamp: Amazon.com: RV Awning Clamp (Black): Automotive

and this GPS: Amazon.com: Garmin Streetpilot 7200 7-inch GPS Receiver - Europe - North America: Electronics

Both top notch products, Joe

Well mine is in the "gonna be great" category. Purchased, but not yet fitted a two seater, leather couch, both sides recline fully, independently. Will replace the three seater couch which is too short to be a bed, and will line up perfectly across from the 32" LCD TV on the other side of the bus. Oh and solar panels and a really good controller going in next week...

Big YES on the two seat reclining sofa. We have one and I can't imagine life without it. I have to get my legs up at night and this is perfect.

I would say the MH is the best addition we have made,except that there were several expensive things wrong with it that didn't show up in the original inspections and they are now all taken care of.
Additions;
1.Cosmo topper,the super Cocker Spaniel. Actually we got him 1 1/2 years ago,but he's the greatest addition to our rig ever.Loves to travel,sit on your laps (does not ride near my seat on the road),and give you all the loves and kisses you could ever hope for.
2. Traveler Dish 1000 and double box Dish TV setup.We can watch two different channels front and back.
3.Air Dream bed for the sofa bed for the step-son.
4.new pillowtop full queen for us.
5. TRC 50A surge guard.(just replaced as it broke)

Hard to chose just one, but these are all at the top of the liste:

Silverleaf Electronics with Pressure Pro tire monitoring system.
Solar Panels - 400Watts
MotoSat HD-DP3 Satellite antenna.
MCD American Duo Window Shades.
Progressive Industries Portable EMS system.

I added this set up for wife who had difficulty getting kitchen stuff out from under the kitchen cabinets in our coach.


There are many more items by myself and many other members in the Quick Tips & Mods link below. Many of them can be adapted for your coach.

Absolutely beautiful 007! We removed the ugly dining booth in our DSDP and put wainscoting on the wall. Found a great oak drop leaf table with two chairs and added two more folding chairs with cushions. Making this change and switching out our tvs to LCD flat screens has to be the best addition to our new MH so far. I'm sure there will be more additions to come!

1) I got rid of the large awning and replaced it with two small ones . One over the door and one over the bed room window. Now if the wind comes I laugh at those who still have that useless awning and are scrambling to put it down.

2) I fixed my solar so it works like it should have when it was first installed by incompetents.

The couch was made in China, but since we live in New Zealand it would be expensive to ship to America from our suppliers.

This appears to be the manufacturer:
Shanghai Honglu Furniture Co., Ltd.

Madrid 3 seater + 2 seater leather recliner suite(xian142) - Detailed info for Madrid 3 seater + 2 seater leather recliner suite(xian142),2 seater leather recliner,Madrid 3 seater + 2 seater leather recliner suite(xian142), on Alibaba.com is a website that shows the seater - no idea where you would get it in America.

Sorry I cant be more helpful! (You cant have ours!)
