Good luck in your shopping. Either way...great lifestyle.
We spent time near our daughter in Oklahoma last year before she deployed to Afghanistan. Temps got down to -6 a few times. Getting propane is a pain in the hiney. You have to put everything
away pull in slides, disconnect and drive either across the campground or a few miles just to fill up propane tank. For us that would have been a weekly event. We wound up buying some electric heaters and only ran propane at night in worst cold. Still had to fill propane tank once a month. If I was buying new I would not have propane. I also have an allegro bus. I have seen phaetons and there would not be a choice for me I would go with the bus if I had the option financially. Take a factory tour and see how long it takes to build a bus versus how long to build a phaeton. Both are motor homes with same basics. The all electric option also gives you more coach batteries which is nice. I do not think that you can get a hybrid refrigerator any more except maybe as an option. I have had both and will never have another hybrid refrigerator. Also get the third AC/ Heatpump You will thank me later.
I am trying to remember the last time my wife used her cook top. She uses a micro hearth cooker. I believe she gets them at amazon. She can fry eggs, potatoes just about anything in it. I cannot tell the difference between things fried in it and a skillet. She bought one then bought another one for the MH and one for the stick home. The other bonus for them is you cannot immerse them when washing dishes. I forgot and did that so now I am not allowed to wash dishes anymore.
