You're welcome Handbuilder hope it helps. In answer to a question you asked regarding the rack with the addition of the new pictures you can see both racks are bolted to the section of the roof that folds down last, that's why its not visible in the camping photo. I'll be interested in a review of the fishing kayak should you decide to purchase it. Have a great day.

I have opted to remove the too large dinette table and am replacing with Coleman 4 in 1 tables, ordered from Amazon, but also on Walmart.com site. Comes as set of two and can be used separately or bound together, also have 3 height adjustments. All folds into a briefcase style to carry and total weight of 12#, waiting for delivery tomorrow.
Also am adapting my portable drill ( 3/4 in fitting/extension )to raise/lower camper supports quickly as bending over to crank is killing my back!

I love my microwave and I love my toilet. I don't mind not having a grey water tank because worst case we just use a bucket. To make my portable hotel room even better I'd like:

- a better insulated floor (although throw rugs can help)
- definitely a 12v outlet
- a bigger fridge with separate freezer, better door latching and interior controls
- reposition the cd/radio so the kids don't bump it every time they come in and out
- exterior door light controlled from inside
- dimmable interior lighting
- standard screen door (Magic Mesh works too)
- wider rear storage door so I can store my grill in there

I think that's it. All in all I've been really pleased with my 2011 Rockwood A126. Sometimes it's hard to raise the roof but I'm short and that's what step stools are for.

Radio with Bluetooth audio would be great, don't need CD player.
Different location for 110v outlets instead of bedside at the mattress (A122)

I would like the stove and the sink switched. It's difficult not getting the bed damp when I do dishes.
Electric plugs on sides of cabinets where the bed is makes it impossible to get to them so moving them would be a must!
Pull out drawer under microwave. I love the microwave and would hate to loose it.
Agree with making the back storage area easier to get to.
A screen door would be a must too!
We got rid of the table that came with our camper for a little portable table. Works much better and is much lighter.
One of my biggest wishes would be that the sinks and cabinets were a bit taller. I'm 5"9' and standing to cook or do anything is impossible. Not sure how this would impact the price.
Even two foot longer would be great!
We are very happy with our camper though even without changes.

Dear Forest River,

What's up with the curtains? Could you have found a more depressing shade of brown?

Sincerely,

Abby

I plan to put in a drawer under the micro in the spring, also relocate some of the 120v outlets to a more convenient location. Lastly, will prob add the two dinette skylights to mine since that was not an option when we bought ours.
