I have not swapped the door window out, but I did read it somewhere here on the site. If I stumble over it I will send it to you. As a cave dweller (that's one big reason why we are rarely seen or photgraphed) I installed a curtain over our door window to kill the light glare and installed blackout shades on all of the windows..

The frig is a great idea, our 2300 did not come with power in the back so I added it. We use a small freezer / ice maker in the back...

if you have not done so consider getting vent covers for your roof vents. It will greatly increase your leak protection if (when) the original plastic vent cover fails due to uv rays. I put on three maxair on our coach..

Another side note. Wally world had a right sized plastic tub that fits under the passenger front seat. We use it for electric plugs and gizmos....

I don't know how I missed this thread until now - maybe because we have been on the road for the past three months and frequently have poor or no wifi.

The 2300 is perfect for two people wanting to stay our for long periods or go full time while staying mobile. We don't tow a car but still have no problem going anywhere we want to. Hiking is our thing and we have always been able to park at trail heads and state park lots. If you like to visit cities frequently, you might encounter parking problems at times. We tend to avoid cities as much as possible. I don't know if we will ever go FT, but I think we could do it with this rig if we wanted to.

I second Hoglou's suggestion for vent covers. Its nice to be able to open your vents during rain storms. Instead of a refrigerator, I put a six gallon compressor in the basement for topping up tires and air bags. That has been a great convenience. I can also use it for winterizing on the road if need be.

It was important to us to keep things small and simple. That meant keeping it at 25 ft. Or less and no slide outs. This three month + trip has been the first real shakedown since we bought the 2300 in October. We've only had a few small problems which I was able fix myself.

We're on our way home from Florida to Massachusetts and will be stopping in Ashland, VA where we bought our rig to have it checked over and have a few minor things looked at. I have to say that we have been very pleased with the performance of our Sunseeker.

DW said wow! On the 90+ days... we are tooling up to do "extended stay" as I am going into partial retirement and DW is there already..

Do you have the curvy couch or dinette? Wonder how you maximied the space..

So what did you frequently use and not use? Always interested in refining our launch list.

We seem to have gravitated to non stick using the sunbeam enamal covered elect skillet and a teflon presto griddle the most.

Just added a farberware induction hot plate from wally world, and aviair 400P-RV.

Removed the magma nesting cookware and the factory water filter...

The stinky slinkly holder has still been the best add/mod to date..

Funny you should ask about the curvy couch. We were in a Camping World today and looking at the recliners. If I didn't already have so many plans for my money, I'd drop the $1000.00+ for a couple right now. Then I'd extend the cable for the Television in the overhead bunk and get a stand so it could sit on the countertop opposite the seating. I built a box under the rear-most seat for keeping our hiking shoes handy.

The cabover bed has become a storage area. I built a holder for our folding biles. We also keep our cycling gear up there as well as storing extra TP paper and paper towels. Day packs are up there too.

We're using non stick cookware and have been buying induction compatible pieces with the intension of getting a cooktop in the future. Since we dry camp a lot, we will always need the gas range. We use the microwave for making tea and for cooking frozen foods when we're just too lazy to cook. The Furion Micro is a piece of junk, but it will suffice for now.

I'm planning to remove the water filter (We use an inline filter) and get a three stage system before we head out on the next adventure.

I like your slinky holder mod. I've been using the bumper and that's OK except that I'll have to paint the inside to get rid of all the rust that has formed in there. I'll have to think about doing what you did.

Next big mods will be better tank monitors and solor panels.

Give this a try with a bed pillow behind you. Leaning back on the big window. The induction plate was about 59.00 at wally.
