There's nothing wrong with the camper (unless that f$%$#@king bunkhouse slide goes out again)- I just really don't care for the living room now. I was never crazy and like it less now that we live in it. The problem is, there's no floorplan that I like better or that has all of our "must haves". I keep threatening to draw something up and see if I can fit everything in that I want. We'll see...
My other big issue is that I'm literally maxed out on weight/carrying capacity. In fact, I'm likely overweight in the camper. So adding a thousand pounds in solar panels, batteries, and related hardware wouldn't be good. If I went solar, it would be the whole 9 yards (panels, transfer switch, batteries, inverter, etc). Having it, we'd spend more time boondocking.
My wish list... 8,000 lb. axles and spacing the tires slightly further apart (if they're down there mucking with things, why not- right?!). This would give me a lot of breathing room for carrying capacity (yes, I hear everyone- I can't change my stickers, but I can change my comfort level).
I'd like to install an accumulator tank off of the fresh water tank. I'd like to upgrade AND isolate the water pump. This should quiet down the whole system.
After the most recent leak, I'd love a water manifold system that lets me control which lines are on/off. But that's a pipe dream. (get it, "pipe" dream)
I'm still on the fence about moving our medicine cabinet to the side wall vs. being right over the sink. I have to sort of duck under it to brush my teeth and shave. I'd replace the current space with a mirror. But, it also means that I'd have to cut down or rebuild the medicine cabinet.
I would now seriously contemplate a leveling system from Bigfoot.
I would consider having OldCoot or someone rebuild an electric stabilizer jack for installatio near the axles. In the meantime, I keep meaning to buy scissor jacks and some wood for cribbing.
If summer comes and I buy a second generator- I'll follow-through with a bolt-on generator box off of the rear of the camper. That way the generators are secure and have a place to run safely.
I have a variety of electrical outlets that I'd like to install to make plugging into things easier and give me USB outlets strategically placed. Right now, our charging station in the kitchen is a mess AND the kids have extension cords ran to make outlets more convenient.
Most recently, I realized that I would really like double-pane windows but they don't really seem like an aftermarket install. You either buy with it or you don't.
And, I'd like to work on insulating the floor, back wall, and where the outdoor kitchen is. Short of pulling the full underbelly, I don't have any idea how to attack that. The R-value of this thing is somewhere between open door and fan blowing the cold/heat around.
