Good chairs; including ones that have the heat reflectors for the back.
If you are a Canadian camping in May- a good TV to watch the playoffs!

Canucks fan?

Already blew the "mad money" for the season, but there's always next year! My wish list would include --

* Custom Memory Foam Bed
* LED's
* Dish / Satellite TV setup
* Napa Valley trip to stock the "Travel Tavern"

I hear you , when we head south we ALWAYS bring as much original Coors back with us. I love the beer but cant get it in Canada anywhere. I now have everybody I know brining it back for me. My brother in-law brought a bunch back for me for May long.

My two favourite teams are the Flames; and whoever is playing Vancouver.

Well, I'm almost a native Calgarian now- been here for 20 years.

(Moved here from Winnipeg.)

Thanks for all the feedback, we don't do any dry camping... but the items of that have me thinking are;

- autotransformer
- chairs / large mat
- fire pit or some type of outdoor heater
- maybe stabilizers for the landing gear.

ya a grand may not be enuff

Let's see....don't have our unit yet, but there were very few options we didn't get. DIdn't get the stainless appliances (we got raised panel refer instead, and I didn't like the fact that the micro isn't stainless if you go with the stainless option) didn't get the 15,000 BTU air, atirum windows, extra create-a-breeze fan, atrium slide toppers (our dealer talked us out of them; he said they create more problems than they're worth, especially because we camp in the woods) and air hide-a-bed (talked ourselves out of this one; not enough room to extend the couch and still get past it to use the B/R at night). We took every other option available. So the only things on my wish list are: bigger TV for the bedroom and outside kitchen (but really, we already have 3 TV's in our unit so that is being kind of nit picky LOL) and a generator.

A generator would certainly be a nice luxury, but I rarely dry camp and besides...$1000 bucks isn't more than a down payment on a good one (e.g., Honda!).

If this was free money so to speak, I'd love to put in one of the new RV tankless water heaters. I think with the cost of the unit and installation that a thousand bucks would cover it. Getting to take long hot showers would be worth the money!
