Need advice on turning a 30RL into a 36CKTS

DW fell in love with 36CKTS but I like the 30RL, I asked Camping World if they could put two more windows in camper and they said yes. I plan to move the enterainment center thats in the corner to the other side, take out the couch. I plan to put a 40in 3d TV in camper and a better radio, put wireless speakers in with a subwoffer. I want to put in a mirco/convection oven in thats vented to the outside. I plan to put in a center island on wheels so that when I move camper I can move it in the corner and strap it down. We came back from Yellowstone with 3 weeks of clothes to wash and DW wife said not again, so a washer/dryer combo will have to be put in.

No laundromats in any of the campgrounds you stayed at?

With that many mods to your fiver, it might be easier to search for another one with a layout more to your liking. It's gonna be an expensive proposition. Good luck whatever you do.

It may cost a little but to upgrade to the 36CKTS would cost more, besides we like the size of the 30RL. I like how truck pulls camper, the fuel mileage I get is not to bad, also I plan on going back to Yellowstone next year and I have to stay at 50ft or less to camp in some campgrounds, right now I am a few inches less than 50ft. The only thing that will cost more is the windows and the entertainment center, everything else would just be a option on another camper. A new 36CKTS would cost about $10,000 more plus my camper would be older and I would get less for camper, in the end it would cost a lot more to trade.

for what your looking to do, IMO, you may be better off in finding 5'er with all of that. I'm on the east coast and I've seen several 5'ers from Open Range to Redwood, and all well under 50' as well.

No I plan on keeping the CC, I don't plan on trading campers again, DW likes the CC, its me that wants to change some things, all I needed was to find out was the windows could be put in and not cost to much. After that it was all downhill

I may have got someone confused, my CC is 34ft 3in long and hooked up to 3500 togather is just under 50ft. That is the way some campgrounds in Yellowstone is, hooked up you have to be 50ft or less, anyway I don't want to be any longer than 34ft. All campers are differnt, you just have to find the one you can live with. I don't like the sound bar thats in our camper or the tv but I can change that. I did not like the fact that our stove or microwave was not vented outside but that can be changed. The only thing I might have problems with if I deside on is thermal pane windows. I saw quite a few CC owners on our trip and no one had the thermal pane windows or wanted them. DW and I will see. I thought DW was going to retire next year and now she says 3 years, so I am going to have to pay off camper and truck soon and her new Mercedes. I want to ride
