Make 1 change?

If you could make one change in your current RV and money was not an issue what would you change. (buying a new one is not an option)

For me it is a toss up between heated floors or replacing a small jack knife couch with recliner, to make kitchen counter pullout island (?) bigger.

Just curious.

I would re-do the dash layout so I could see the LBCU while driving. Also modify the drivers seat to accommodate my body. I'm only 155 lbs but the seat seems to be designed for someone in the 220 range. I actually liked the seat in our previous 36LA better than current ones.

Air bag system. Love our coach, just wish the ride was smoother.

New ISX engine free from Cummins or even to fully stand behind a known design defect in them!

This is my main gripe also. Who ever designed our dash layout should be fired. Not only can I not see the LBCU, I also can't see some of the other gauges and the turn signal indicators. The Allison Transmission control panel is not tilted near enough towards the driver to allow looking at it without leaning forward.

You asked for one, but here is another of my gripes that I wish I could change. Why a coach of the Phaeton's caliber doesn't have the smart steering wheel is beyond me. Big oversight on Tiffin's part.

Our TT has a rear slide with a queen bed. While not a realistic mod, I would change that from a east-west set up to north-south. Much easier to get in and out of!
I would also like to raise it a few inches. Maybe this year I will do that!

I would want to change the chassis from 22500lbs to the 24k one.

Dang, I must be in the minority, there's not one thing I would change. I love my MH.

After 15 years, (113k miles), with this coach everything I wanted changed, (and/or needed changing), has been changed.

For the inside, upgrade the entire entertainment system.

For the outside, get rid of the vinyl decals and paint some new ones.

Everything else is good, including life!
