Cheap plastic light fixtures with push buttons in the middle and only one over sink. (ours are glass, wall or under cabinet switch and two lights over sink.)
No metal adjustable reading lights over bed (they are the same cheap plastic domes as above now)
No corner backsplash at stove.
No Glass shower door or even as option.
No sprayer on kitchen sink
No heated/remote mirrors
No wall mirror (2400R)
If this had been done before we took delivery I would have refused it and gone elsewhere. I think that when you have the Mercedes logo on the front grill you should expect like quality in the coach. Now they are just McRVs. Hopefully the decision makers at FR will come to their senses soon. People do have a choice and I expect the scale to tip to other manufacturer's.
I just read this out loud to my wife and her jaw is still on the ground. She confirmed we would of not purchased if these features were left off.
I find it surprising if it was to save money to install the Lippert Control System. I am 41 and very tech savvy but I don't want any more automation on the RV. Both of our parents have RVs and I can for sure confirm they don't want any more complicated to service or operate systems.
Things (necessities) that should be added instead
- tire pressure monitoring
- surge protection
Thanks Forest River for keeping the resale on our "awesomely equipped" 2016 high! By stripping them down ours will be more in demand. Only problem is I will have to go elsewhere to get better than what I have now it appears....
