I didn't read through all the posts but I can tell you I didn't buy a $70,000. plus toilet and then not use it. Just boggles my mind and I do know people who don't use their bathroom period. They use the campground facilities totally. I guess the people who don't use their trailer facilities don't boondock.

You are soooooo right about that. I hate trading anything in that hasn't been used up. That's like leaving money on the table.

I bought a used camper that had a toilet that was never used. Not sure why the previous owners didn't use it. I didn't care either way but was a selling point, weird.

You are 100% correct. When we bought our 5th wheel brand new, I found myself being careful of this or that and telling my son not to stand on the seats or climb on everything. Then I caught myself and said we bought this to enjoy and make lifelong memories, and most of all have fun. My goal is for it to last ten years, every year after that is a bonus. If I do ever go to sell it I want people to look at it and say damn that thing was used....lol. The only thing that will not be touched is the oven. I'm a weekend camper and if I can't BBQ it, I won't cook it.

Oh yeah, I agree 100%, the first two TT I was that way, but with our new to us 2650 Sunseeker, caution has been throw out the door, for one thing, we paid lots of good money for this, and I'll be damn if I can't cook, or go to the bathroom because of resale value. We want to enjoy everything that life has to offer, just newly retired and we've earned it...
Happy trails
