We have the same coach... We've had it for just about 2 years now
- The insulation doesn't seem to be as good as what we experienced with our 2003 Alpenlite Augusta.
It definitely gets warm (we stay away from the cold). I have no suggestion or solution for this.
- Big Hallway and Bedroom Windows
We are in the process of installing MCD Day and Night Shades throughout our coach. They make it way easier for opening and closing the windows and you can put the day shade down and get some privacy (and shade) during the day while allowing some airflow. We pull the night shades down at night and when we need total privacy but it does block most of the airflow.
These shades don't solve your problem but they are so much better than the standard pleated shades.
I built 2 roll out trays in the cabinet under the stove and a two layer rollout tray under the sink. These cabinets are deep and the rollout trays allow full access to the space.
My factory subwoofer is in the cabinet under the kitchen table.
We have a door mount knife holder in the cabinet under the sink
- small sofa and small recliner
We are completely remodeling the living room. We are replacing the short couch with a custom sofabed that has a full size air mattress. This allows the bed to not block the walkway when opened.
We are replacing the large couch with two swivel recliners that can be repositioned for better TV viewing.
- The microwave has a recirculating fan
An exhaust fan would be nice but this fan does help to keep the smoke detector from going off
The rear closet door has a stop on it (I think) that make closet access difficult. We removed the stop so our doors slide all the way from one end to the other. This allows much better access to the closet. I like the water heater and electric panel access, it is much easier to work on when needed than some of the other configurations I have seen.
We don't fully utilize our closet anyway (we don't have many hanging clothes). We have actually built a computer desk into the right end of the closet. It still allows shirts to be hung above there and you just move them out of the way when you use the computer.
We have done countless other changes and modifications to this coach and LOVE EVERY MINUTE WE SPEND IN IT.
Please feel free to contact me about any questions you might have.
