My new Coachmen Catalina

Wife and I picked it up yesterday. Any recommended accessories or upgrades? I'm going to grab some leveling blocks, screens for the exhaust vents, and maybe a mattress topper. Any other must haves before I hit the road?

Congrats! Hope you get to use it a LOT!
That is the goal, right?

Along with the other things mentioned make sure you pick up a clear sewer hose adapter....takes the "guess work" out of knowing how well the tanks are flushed out!!

Good advice on all of the upgrades. I didn't even think of some of these.

do not forget to put the snap strap on the sliding door before travel.

At some parks, you may need a sewer hose extension (10' wal-mart)

install a battery-cut-off switch.

Have fun

I've got a good set of used X-Chocks for sale over in the classifieds... as soon as the mods post the ad.

Most of the things people have chimed in with is stuff you're gonna need no matter what type of camping you have in mind. Good suggestions all.
