Obviously I see some value there and things that I can sell. But I need to be sure at the end of the day, the average buyer doesn't say "well I don't really care about that".
A first time buyer is not going to be aware of "quality" issues - they are more likely to make price comparisons and let that dictate their decisions
. I speak from experience; after deciding on floor plans we like, we've then looked at units in our price range. We bought a Solera after making some feature comparisons with Winnie View, and at substantially lower price we found the Solera to be a much better value. Obvisously, there were trade-offs, and the converter may be one (have no idea what they put in a View).
We would all like to have every imaginable feature, and top of the line everything, but that's unrealistic. FR does a great job, though
. They've upgraded to LEDs etc. because of consumer demand, and maybe from our input on the forum. I wouldn't bet against a converter upgrade, either. BClemens has always been our advocate.
