Hey Juscruisin!

Sorry, guy...
I really thought you were kidding around- I had no idea they really offered RV's with fireplaces and multiple T.V.'s...

I'll just go and attempt to extract my foot from my mouth...

Only things I HAVE to have in the RV is my DW and a nice relaxing time!

OK, and a good bottle of wine which meshes the above 2 items nicely.

I don't have an RV yet and some of the things I think I need are
3 A/C units, Aqua hot, in motion sat, bath & 1/2, 4 hd tv's, free standing chairs/table instead of a booth, basement slide out trays, fireplace, residential fridge, power hoses, awnings and stackable washer/dryer

Lookin' for a little help thru experience.

Hey--knock yourself out---get it all if you can afford it-----if you put it on the list then you must think it would bring you joy-----who else would you want to satisfy if not yourself? Make sure you post some pictures---love to see what you get.

You did not mention slide outs so with all that stuff it could get crowded----get a few of those as well---I'd say four.

No need to delete...the 'ribbing' is all in good nature. I'm just a little jealous I can't afford such toys. I once saw a diesel Class A with a smart car...no a Mini Cooper tucked into a 'garage' in the back of it...at $2 point something million, I had to pass.

Have fun with your search...buy that you can afford with all the toys you want to maintain. Bob

It apparent I posted this in the wrong area. Should have been in the Class A section. I do appreciate the heated floor option. I am hoping the running change from Freightliner to Spartan chassis on the Entegra Aspire will allow a 15k hitch. I really don't want to move up to the Anthem if possible.

No RV....yet.

I guess I'm easy. I love to tinker and the ice maker didn't work anyhow, so I pulled it and the barrel chair next to the door out and installed an old wooden desk and rolling office chair instead. The desk is a small one, 24"X40", big drawer just under the desktop, three nice drawers on either side of the kneehole. I keep my small hand tools, multimeter, note pads etc in the drawers, laptop on the desk. Now I have a neat place to fix or tinker to my heart's content. I bought it at a rehab/mission for 20.00. It looks made back in the 40's, all wood, pretty-ish, but very light weight, not like that particle board crap. Was wasted space. Now I can sit comfortably, look out the window, feel the breeze coming in. I still have the original coach light right above the work area, and it does what I want, and so do I.

Francesca, where are you finding those entertaining pics? I'd enjoy seeing the highrise community in real life -- or is it computer trickery?

Actually it's an outdoor theatre set in Amsterdam, used for a Chekhov play in 2006.

One of the first features I prefer is to have a decent viewing angle of the TV, not at 90 degrees from where you sit.

Why not just buy a 2012 Foretravel IH-45 and have it customized the way you want--only $1,199,000.00 plus tax.

3 A/C units are a must if you travel in a hot area and have a big rig . . . plus the washer and dryer is a godsend if you're in your rig a lot. I must say, the electric/propane fireplaces confuse me.

I saw a sign in a rig once that I thought was perfect. It was at least a 40 foot Beaver, and the sign said "This coach serves drinks for 6, dinner for 4, and sleeps 2." I need that sign!!
