Our in-laws purchased the same captains chairs as we did, because they sat in ours on one of our camping trips last summer and loved them. Going with new was about 15-20% less than re-upholstering the old ones and now everything is new. They are definitely more comfortable than the old captains chairs.

The captains chairs are the Deleon and are $384 each for cloth or $474 each for ultimate leather. We purchased the ultimate leather and added the manual lumbar support for an additional $75 per chair. The couch in my in-laws motor home is the Belmont and is $997 for cloth and $1087 for ultimate leather. They added a storage drawer under the couch which was an additional $150. Our lounge that we purchased is the Bordeaux and is $1276 for cloth and $1381 for ultimate leather. The Bordeaux has two drawers, but they did not cost more. They are standard on that particular model. My in-laws and I purchased multiple things at once and received a minor discount for making the purchases at time. It was not a large discount but a discount none the less. They are much more reasonably price than competitive rv furniture and they have more modern styling than some of the other furniture manufacturers.

Simple upgrade

A pretty easy modification and one that has been well liked was an upgrade to the toilet.

When we got our coach much of the plastic had turned a brownish orange including the toilet and the seat. When I went to look for a replacement seat the cost was around $50.

I did some shopping and got a Dometic 310 porcelain hi rise toilet for $150 shipped. It bolted right to the existing flange and the water connection was super easy. Total time to replace was under 10 minutes.

This model has the foot flush and is about 3" higher than the existing one. Much, much better that was was there.

We have an '88 Travelcraft and one of the best additions we added was a 47" 3D TV. Will try and post a pic, but not sure if I know how.

And, love the hat holders!

We built the ceiling bracket (works much the same as a bracket on a swingset so that we can fold it up to the ceiling when traveling).
Thanks about the hat holders - We have them throughout the motor home

tammycardwel:

Are you asking why your front air conditioner works on shore power but not on generator?

If so, likely because one of the breakers on the gennie (there are usually 2- one 30 amp for the front AC and a 20 amp for the rear) is popped or bad.

If you are asking why BOTH ACs won't run at the same time on shore power- its because they can't on a 30 amp unit. You must switch between front or back while plugged into shore power, but you can probably run both on generator. There is a switch somewhere, maybe in a cupboard labeled Front/Rear to switch between ACs while on shore power.
