3010DS owners who are you

Ok we are about ready to order the above rig from RV Direct. What options
didn't you order that you should have?


Also, has anyone added a small refer in the rear storage?

Thank you for your reply.

I would have got the leather seats. I'm having leather and seat heaters installed next wk.

If you can get all led lighting I would get it.

Make sure you have the 7500 lb hitch.

The fan in the bathroom sucks. I changed it out for a fantastic fan.

Otherwise they are nice equipped.

We also added an electrical outlet on the rear window side of the bed.

I bring a small apt size fridge w/ me, then set it up outside. Saves on ice. I thought about adding an outlet in the rear storage. It would be nice it FR provided one back there.

good input, leather is out due to me sweating. Adding a outlet in the rear
storage would probably be a good idea.

I am in about the same place as you. Just ordered from RVDirect this week as well. Expected delivery in about 10-12 weeks.

I got most of the options except only went with the single standard TV above the kitchen counter. We just aren't big TV watchers so didn't want 3 or 4 of them. Of course, also didn't get the satellite dish for the same reason. Pretty much got everything else!

One option that I wasn't going to get but ended up getting was the driver and passenger swivel seats. I was skeptical because I have seen previous attempts at this in Class Cs that were poorly done. I was able to see them in person and they work well and are usable.

I got the 4 door refrigerator so I don't think there would be a need for an extra fridge in the back. Although I don't see why it couldn't be done if you wanted to.

I'm still awaiting mine (ordered mid Dec) pick up early March. So I really haven't had time to "miss" anything yet. I got the leather and swivel seats. I've seen pictures with the swivel seats and I think the layout of the 3010 works well with them (some models don't have any room behind the passenger seat). The downside, is that once swiveled, they really sit right on the floor. For me, this is no problem, but for others, it might be. For kids, I'm sure it would be great and it does allow a little extra living room seating. I think I'm glad I got them from what I could see...

As far as the 7500 hitch, that was one thing I really liked as well. I'm pretty sure they became standard sometime last fall. All of the current literate lists them now as standard.

I don't know if it is an option to have the factory install a different fan in the bathroom ? Also, did you do the outlet yourself or have it done by the factory or dealership ?

Our 3010DS is due at the end of February. Our ordered options are:
Fiberglass Front Cap
Heated remote Mirrors
Side view Cameras
Grill
Wood refer panels
Convection Oven
Upgraded mattress
TV over counter
Surround sound
Fantastic fan
Arctic Package
2nd aux battery, but I think this is standard now?

We went with Maple color cabinets to help lighten up the inferior.

My dealership did all the additions. With the help of Mr Clemens, they got me the 7500 lb hitch. I had the fan replaced with a fantastic fan which is much nicer and quiter. The factory fan in the bathroom was horrible. The new one sucks air out or blows it in. Cool. I also had the rear window seal replaced under warranty. The dealership also added the outlet.

So I'm happy for their service. Cost me about $900 for everything. Not cheap but it's done.

update....ordered a Forester for the same price as a Sunseeker. A new
buddy on here told me about another dealer in Oh who did a great
job on pricing for me.

Thanks for all the input
