It's kind of a novelty and I don't even use it half the time so that could be added to the list of not needed.

I say go for all you can and enjoy every second of it!

Me, I am happy with room for my dogs and a good pot of coffee. Well, cheap and good wireless internet would be nice too.

Hi, Barb

No computer trickery involved- just strange and wonderful things I come across while wandering the Information Superhighway!
I'd like to say that I didn't know that the highrise trailertown was a set for a play.
I want it to be real, too- and I like to think it is, SOMEWHERE in this amazing world of ours.

We have an electric fireplace, (original equip.) in our MH that has a small built-in electric heater that puts out enough heat to keep the furnace from coming on and using MY expensive propane. (Most of the time.)
Fireplace gives kind of a cozy feel and look on a cool evening.
Didn't know they put propane fireplaces in MHs, of course, that goes along with all the other things I don't know about MHs.

The item that I have actually gotten least amount of use out of is the outiside TV. I prefer the Traveler's Satellite dish over the the in motion. We don't watch TV while rolling down the road and the Traveler's dish works great in the stationary situations. I have a power reel on the electrical. Wouldn't mind having a power water reel. When the Norcold dies it will be replaced with a residential fridge. We don't boondock and rarely use the gas option. If the combo washer/dryer dies I will seriously consider separate units. Wouldn't mind at all having either an electrical or a gas fireplace installed. The electric would be preferable since that would be run off of shore power and not use my propane. Since you're talking aqua hot you would probably have an electric unit also. All sound like good useable options to me.

Hey don't quote me about the propane...we have a gas fireplace @ home & not in the RV. We generally use an electric space heater when it's cold to use the park's power instead os propane. I enjoy our gas fireplace & can imagine enjoying one in an rv...wonder if Oregon Motor Coach does those?! :-)

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.
I need one of those, to haul the camaro, the jeep, and the bike... Every one I've seen is 18k gross, my rig will only tow 10k. I thought 10k was plenty....

Other than the 3 AC units which only come on the million dollar Prevosts etc. you can get the other items on the higher end class A motor homes. To get the bath and a half you will probably need to go to one longer than 40 feet. Go to some RV shows and spend some time looking.

You'll get 3 AC units on almost any 45' DP. Probably some 43' and 41' as well.

The Prevost units mostly have 4 AC units these days, unless they have an oversize basement AC system.

3 AC's on our 42 foot Country Coach. The 40' Phaeton we were looking at initially had 3 AC's too.

Unnecessary? Our 2nd fireplace is not used much because both are wired to the same wall switch. We must select either the bedroom fireplace or the living room fireplace, not both.. Besides that, I will never go to bed and leave either running. That brand (Dimplex) has been known to char the wood above the fireplace when left on for extended periods.

Ours is an ElectraFlame by Dimplex and the wood never gets very warm, I just checked it.
And I have checked it several times after being on all night.

You almost perfectly matched the list of stuff I don't want! The free standing chairs and table might be nice; I have a booth.
Do wants:
King size bed
Large shower
4-dr RV refrigerator
Real Oven (Tara makes great Pizza)
Travel'r Antenna - stationary satellite HD capable
XM
etc., etc. - stuff we (you?) actually use!
