Do they need to access or to remove? If just access to turn the propane on/off a locking mechanism can keep thieves from walking off with tanks but let firefighters, etc. still turn them off.

However I would think a firefighter would rather remove them, so no way to lock unless it used some kind of universal key they had. Kinda like the fireman's switch in elevators.

If I am not mistaken, mine have a clasp where one could put a smaller (but not tiny) padlock. I would think that would be okay. Granted those smaller padlocks can easily be cut but if your in a place with other units, they'd probably just move to one they could get it out easier and quicker.

I am all for the locks on the propane tanks. This past summer I put the padlocks on the straps that go around the tanks. Went to the camper while it was at the storage lot and someone had tried to take them. One item that should be standard on all campers is the nev r adjust electric brakes.

As for options- whatever you do, please publish them properly with your dealers! We found out later about things that apparently we could request but didn't know it. (But of course, my mind is slipping me now as to what they were.)

Options that I would have liked on my camper (not sure how this corresponds to what you currently offer):
  1. Air pin box (TrailAir w/ TriGlide or something like it)
  2. Shocks for the camper to help it ride a little nicer
  3. 2-way fridge for the outdoor kitchen
  4. Vent covers!
  5. Slide topppers/awnings (ours were dealer-installed)
  6. Oxygenics shower head
  7. Dream Dinette (though, we opted for a u-shaped dinette)
  8. Pull-out shelves for cabinets, espcially any deep ones
  9. Broom closet (may have to be a standard thing since it could effect the floorplan)
  10. Proper sewer hose storage (see the various threads on the sewer tubes people create out of post covers + gutters)
  11. Upgrade option for tires

I have a 2013 - 312BHX and the cabinet space in the entertainment area is not deep enough to store squat in there. Can't even put a DVD in book style. More space is needed. Also would like to have pull out shelves in the panty. Those cabinets are deep and rail shelves would help. In bunk room the wasted space behind the ladder could be put to use with cubby holes. My husband isn't very handy so after markets are not an option. Loving our Wildcat!

Really appreciate the feedback here. I will be printing out the comments here and taking them into our next design meeting.

Hydraulic? Electric? Or does it matter? And as far as that goes, why 6-point over 4-point?

I'm listening!
