the old Gulfstream BT cruiser B plus we had a short qween bed I did not like having to curl up could not stretch out. Also it had one of those tub shower units that your head just about touches the ceiling. Also in the bathroom it had a cabinet above the bathroom sink so you couldn't put your head over it to spit without bumping your head. Our new to us class A does not have any of these problems because we knew what to look for. our new one also has residential faucets instead of those crappy RV ones. Another thing our new one we can walk around the bed to make it so much easier.

A quality mattress.

Many RV's come with very poor mattresses...that can ruin a whole trip.

Upgrade or compensate with a quality foam topper.

Safe travels

Auto leveling is a must. We're in our first season with our first Class A, and there was a lot of compromise when we were shopping, but a few things I wanted. Blackout shades were a must for us. We opted to upgrade to MCD Duos when they were having a sale last year, dumped the nasty metal blinds. Biggest thing - make SURE you both fit in the shower & can use it. When you're looking, get in and try to move around the way you would if you were taking a shower. Ours had a yucky plastic door that we took out and put in an extend-a-shower bar from Camping World.

Oxygenics Body Spa showerhead. Makes a huge difference, especially when you're somewhere that the water pressure is marginal. Cheap upgrade, very easy DIY.

50 Amp. You can step down to 30 if you have to, but having 50 is extremely nice when it's available.

Generator is a must.

We shopped Class C's first, and saw a few we really liked. Then we decided to try a Class A. Absolutely no comparison. Sitting up high and having the huge windshield is fantastic.

Make sure that if you're getting a coach with slides, you can use it and access everything you need to access with the slides in. Can you get to the bathroom, the refer, open cabinets, etc? Can you use the bedroom with the slides in, just in case you need to take a nap or if you want to do an overnight at Wally World? (A North/South bed was important to us for just that reason.)

Not really an option, but seriously consider how often you plan to use it, and how long you plan to stay out. The longer you are away, the more you will appreciate having a larger MH. We go out for a week~10 days at a time and are glad that we bought a late model larger DP than a brand new smaller one. Like you are doing, I did my homework & feel like I got it right the first time.

For me diesel power, inverter, and a leveling system.

Now I will say if funds permit I'd get a class A diesel pusher.
