I forgot to add auto-lock on baggage doors. This is a fun exercise until we get charged for the upgrades.

In two years of owning my Berkshire I have never thought of one item where FR has cut corners or sacrificed quality (okay, maybe Dan's $7 lighted entry door handle that was pre-wired). I a pretty discriminating buyer and trust me I did plenty of motorhome research prior to buying my Berk. This thread was not built on quality control enhancements, just a light hearted wish list for owners or prospective buyers to add as we are the ones who know these units the best.

The site team has done a cleanup here. We removed some political posts and also moved the posts comparing Berkshires to Dutchstars to their own thread.

Please keep your posts on topic to the initial intent of this thread, which is a wish list for Berkshires.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program

I've just ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.... I will keep you posted.

I would also like to see a fluid level indicator in the wet bay. It would make it easy to check fluids while dumping and/or adding water to the black tank after dumping.

By the way, thanks WM

I would like to see more thought put into kitchen cabinets.

None of the cabinets around sink are wide enough for plates.

Cabinets under sink need deviders.

It would be nice to have a panty and a better designed kitchen drawer.

Wall to wall shower cabinet with towel rack.

Proper latch on drawer below love seat.

Driver window that does not rattle.

Reinforced area on wall and slides for placement of slide locks.

FR replaced most of those drivers windows. That was the first warranty item down in mine. You might ask if they would cover yours.

For floorplans like my 2013 390RB a better ducting arrangement for the front furnace. Maybe this has already been fixed, don't know.

Berkshire Wish List

Larger fresh, gray and black water tanks (fresh water tank that actually holds a full tank of usable water). We get put to shame by toy haulers. We can only boondocks for 3 days. Not good!
2011 Berkshire 390-rb-40, upgraded tires and front axle airbags, 2012 Jeep Wrangler 2 door, Blue Ox baseplate and BlueOx aladdin tow bar, Blue Ox Patriot brake system, wiring run through right frame rail and homemade led taillight bar.FB.
