You and I will have to agree to disagree on this one. It takes longer to disconnect the water hose from the hose bib and the trailer (and coil it up) than it does to hold a paper towel in hand and feed the cord back into the trailer. I can understand several reasons why people may prefer a detachable power cord, but using the excuse of dirty or wet isn't one of them.

I would say the dual glazed windows and extra insulation. Basically, anything that can't be added easily after.
