I was thinking of seeing if FR would take on the modification to put in a Shoreline RL54. It's only 11.5 inches tall. It would require moving the inverter and shelf up about 2 inches, along with the electrical hookups. Not particularly easy but I think it's possible.

I had no idea you were that size restricted. Good luck with project guys. You would think they would have a reel in them already.
I know you don't want to hear this, but I could sleep in my 5th wheel basement, I even have outside tv in there. Wife calls it bad boys room!!

Heck I could have a sleepover in my basement. Although not as tall as a 5er basement there is Tons of room and much larger. Although I manage to fill it up. The basement isn't the issue. This is a separate compartment with lots of stuff in it.

would this work if yon moved the A/B box? 10"/11" high. How much room behind the compartment? Mount behind and fashion a box to enclose, then cut hole in compartment to get to it?? Your setup is different than my 2008.

This was the #3 request to Berkshire -- I KOW they saw our wish list, weather or not the acted on it is any one's guess.

Sad to see a Riverstone 5er has a power cord reel and we are still stuck with finding a place for the Anaconda (especially since SOBs offer this in comparable rigs!)

Seriously Bob, comparing a 5er to a Moho, IMHO you're comparing apples and oranges.

Not really Paul - A Riverstone is the Berkshire (or maybe better in some ways) of the 5er family (and in fact has several features that Berks should emulate--the 50 AMP cord reel being one of them)
