What did you HAVE to have in your RV and....

Find that after you got your RV it is of no use/waste of money/impractical/etc?

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.

Relatives that mooch? Say it's not so You mean the kind that drive 8 hours, one way, on the only day of the year you have a party for coworkers. (10 yrs in a row) bring all of their extended family, eat all your food, make numerous requests for "special" foods then have the nerve to ask for gas money to drive home?
Can't imagine anyone like that! Oh wait. My inlaws. Still love them anyway.

That's them, all right.
I always wondered where they went off to, holidays...

And why they came home singing "Everything's up to Date in Kansas City"

Welcome to the family, Cousins!

Man all that stuff on the list blows my mind. I'm just happy with my favorite coffee cup and the DW for company.

Since you can't see the hitch in the photo I can't say what the tow vehicle is...
but this little rig might hold it all:

The bath and 1/2 is nice. It is what sold the wife on a class A. Don't need a lot of that stuff because it's just something else to breakdown and keep you from actually enjoying your rig.
Now, if you are going full time, and/or plan on living in the baby for very extended periods, then by all means, set it up like you want it. Just know this, the more stuff you have moving down the road, the more you'll have to keep repaired.

Ok, I see this is helping a bunch.

I was giving some examples of what be added to a low line Aspire and they all seem to be minor in the overall cost.

The mods can delete if y' all want.
