If you want to improve the FR3.
Replace the slide system to a non cable system.

Offer electric rear view mirrors.

Offer hight adjustable driver seat.

Map light.

Prewire for fans.

Fix the bounce of the dashboard.

Move the fuse panel to a spot accessible with bed slide in.

Add some shelves.

Give owners a better manual. And a wiring and plumbing diagrams.

Make pocket door latch able in the closed position.

Make dash laptop tray capable of holding a 17 inch laptop.

Put front stereo speakers in a spot the diver can hear them with the front bed down.

Oh very important. Get better in much brighter head lights especially the low beams.

First thing I noticed about the stupid mirror is you can only see the entry door and part of the TV from the drivers seat. I added a school bus mirror so now I can see out the back window and passengers on the couch and dinette.

I believe the mirror is referred to as conversation mirror so the driver can look at passenger without turning his/her head ....

Well it worked we are talking about. Glad no one was hurt, but then again you have seven years to know for sure.

I agree with nearly all of Stephan's suggestions and don't disagree with any of them. Some I just simply have not discovered yet.

I don't understand the mirror at all as to be able to see anything in it you have to lean over to the right. And with the bed slide in and the bottom 40 of the mattress folded up most of the rear window is blocked anyway.

But I would cover all three panels with the wallpaper surface rather than the wood paneling. Nothing sticks to the wood paneling so you can't put anything on there for decoration.

I'm with you OC.

I've heard of mirrors over a bed but never under a bed.

Must be something the younger generation is doing.

Speaking of the radio

It would also be nice if the radio in the front was more directed toward the passenger than the driver, since the passenger is more likely to be making adjustments to it than the driver. At least that's how it is with us. I can't see myself getting comfortable enough to start fiddling around with the radio while I'm driving.
