We're a number 3. We got our Meridian about a year ago. Bigger would be nice, but isn't necessary or financially in the cards right now. We went to the Dallas RV show this past weekend. It seems that the latest thing is 1 1/2 baths and 2 TVs in the living area. I don't understand the need for either. While the rear large bath is nice, to me it's a waste of space. The second toilet between the bedroom and living area is another waste of space. I would rather have a larger living area (where we spend most of our time). I have no clue why there are two TVs. My living room at home is much larger than the living area in the coach. Surprisingly, we only have one TV. We are in the middle of renovating, but don't have any plans to add a second TV. There were some motor homes that we liked. There were more that we didn't like. There was one we would have taken instead of ours, but the price was so high we could have bought 6 of ours for the price of that one.

Yep, we're a 3.

We're a #1. Ours is paid for, 6 years old and not large enough. We just wintered in South San Fran, CA and 2 adults with 2 large dogs in a 23' toy hauler ... just not cutting it. We 'think' we've found our new unit. We are looking for dealers who have one on the lot so we can touch it, open doors and drawers and such. NOW for the check writing .... ah ... the bank will have to write that check and trust us to write one each month. : ? )

The glitz and bling don't do much for us. Our's is a gas rig, the size is good, and it has two slides. We take it on short trips, under two hundred miles. Give those facts our rig is almost perfect, not worth spending more for minimal upgrades.
But if my wife ever retires, a DP, a little loger, and maybe three slides. But nothing that looks like a French house of pleasure.

Not sure where this falls, but there a several that I would move in to if I had the money, but nothing that I like enough to spend more money than we are now, in our current situation....

I'm a #1. See sig. I am one that ordered a unit with 2 TVs in front. The one above the dash will run the navigation which is way easier to see than the small display by the radio. I do like all the "glitz"as one poster indicated. I wish I could afford one even more "glitzier".
No RV....yet.

I'm In #3
What I liked
King bed
Full body paint

What I didn't
Dark paint
Sectional couch- they quit making these for homes for a reason.
TV with a good view of the bathroom instead of out the windshield
Entry door at the front
Missing recliner
Table and chairs instead of booth- what does everyone ask for at a resturaunt
Lack of desperate washer and dryer
A/c units on the roof

I would have to go with number 1 also. I wanted capacity in water, power, space, etc and a super strong build for comfort and safety so I've decided on a late model Newell. The only thing that bugs me is the extreme luxury and glitz. DW loves it but to her it is a mobile condo. For an old country boy it's just so slick that I'm not sure I'll fit comfortably. Now a jeep toad, that's more in my comfort zone.

Number # 3
It was bought for a purpose and it filling that desire we had hoped.

We have no intentions of ever going full time.
Seeing new, expensive MHs are for ideas.

My wife was a bit surprised when I said to her, that I would not trade our mortgage free home and clear title Class C for any of the multimillion dollar Extreme MH that have been on TV, IF I had to go full-time and they included fuel and insurance for life.

We all have some "Gypsy blood" in us or enjoy a different type of
"outback style walk about" or we would not be into RVs.
I enjoy my "walk about" and enjoy returning to base.
We are satisfied with what we have.

We are K&K for Kathy & Ken - Both retired.
