What new standard/options would you like to have?

I got to thinking last night, what new standard features I would like to see and started a list:
1. better table set up
2. better window styles, maybe white on the inside and outside, and awning style
3. updated upholstery,
4. better sink style with the faucet inside the sink to keep the water off the counter top,
5. elimination of those window blind protrusions
6. illuminated storage/cabinets
7. different awning, maybe like the Airstream with the metal protection while stored

What are your ideas?

1. Low point drain.
2. Toilet shut-off valve
3. Two step access step
4. Top step to loft in 5er that opens
5. Adjustable shelves in cabinets instead of fixed placement
6. Hepvo valves in place of sink traps

Yes, I miss the low point drain and all the other ones are good except #2 the shut off is available now, IINM as an option.

A redesigned entry door that seals better and is wider to accommodate more fridge options.

Low Point Drain indeed. I got the toilet shutoff installed on our new unit. Will have to see about the other features when the rig arrives.

Option of a heated floor would be interesting for the winter spots when hooked up to shore power.

Nev-R-Adjust and Nev-R-Lube Dexter axles. Another vote for low point drain and toliet shut off valve.

Stuck at work for a few hours and I’m bored.
1) Dual speed furnace
2) Dual pane awning windows in the loft of the 5.0 TA
3) 16” rims
4) Glassed in raised blocking on the roof where available, for solar panels.
5) Rock shield for the 5.0 TA
I’m guessing that part of the mold changes will incorporate some sort of raised blocking for the solar mounting. Scott

I was thinking that as well Scott.

Perhaps a bit more "nose" on the 21/19/17 to make aerodynamics better too.

Another choice of cabinetry finish, maybe something a bit darker, or contemporary. The blonde oak is the least aesthetic aspect of the trailer.
