Things You Don't Use Or Use On Occasion

I see that there are a few inquiries from newbies that want to know what they should get as options on campers...

Well newbies you need to know how, when and where you want to camp as to the options you need.

For me, I camp starting in the early spring and right up to the beginning of November and that is it. We do not head South.

At the moment there are a few ideas that came with my camper I do not need and that is #1. Heated tanks, no need to heat them between the time frame i have mention above. #2. The stove/oven, we do our cooking either on a campfire or an electric pan. The only time i use the stove is to purge the propane lines for the furnace to take the chill out and i end up using an electric heater any way.....How about everyone else, what are the things you don't use?

Order a second 12v battery. When we had ordered our 5er, I didn't realize most, if not all, new TT's and 5er's are coming with just one 12v marine battery.

We start camping in March and sometimes as late as November. Mostly state parks and on occasion a private park.

Same for me with what you have listed plus a few others.

1. XM radio hook up
2. iPod hook up
3. Bathtub - We do take the GK's with us a lot, but they can take showers. My DW and I like the bigger shower stall.
4. Outside Gas Grill - We have one and we do use it occasionally, but it's not a "have to have" item.

Mine came with everything mentioned above, except the xtra battery, which I put in. The stove/oven is NOT an option. It comes on all units standard. You don't need the slide locks! Waste of aluminum. There are many options that you don't "need" particularly, but they are more power awnings, power tongue jack, power stabilizer jacks, that "outstanding" Concertone radio system no camper should be without, to name a few.
