Sorry, I'm from the Grey Wolf on order group :-}. My main comment: Get Rid Of The Cheap Tires!!! Come on, really nice TT with junk tires? "Everything" rides on the tires. So the price goes up $50 or $100 bucks. All of us will gladly pay for GOOD tires. When I realized what tires are on my "ordered" Grey Wolf my first stop will be the tire shop to get them Off My Trailer. If Forest River as a whole wants to be moved up a notch in respect, just do this one thing.
I will also second the battery disconnect switch. What a very basic need on a camper.
I will applaud the availability and pricing of the second year warranty. Very nice. Even though a lot of dealers keep it to themselves.
I've seen some comments on things that relate directly to floor plans and fully understand trying to fit several needs and wants for the buying public. We picked ours out at the St. Louis RV Show since we were able to do immediate comparisons right there. Some had very good layouts and some were just plain, " I don't get it". Floor plans are probably the primary consideration on picking one. For me anyway. Thanks for asking and "Where's my new trailer?" Not too impatient, am I!!

Haha. Sorry, that's not something I can supply from the factory. We have been looking at a time machine option -- would that help?

Heh...I heard that the price of Flux Capacitors put that option out of range!

Lots of good comments. Add one more: A switch on a seperate recepticle outside for the awning lights. A MUST HAVE for me is the outdoor kitchen. Would love to see a toy hauler without the generator and fuel tanks with a outdoor kitchen to haul electric golf cart camping.

Just to repeat the important ones to me that have been posted, some I have with my current TT and love them:

1. Stronger bumper for bike racks and my sewer hose must fit inside (DUH).

2. Exterior compartment doors that match the size of the compartment.

3. Compartment containing water filter, fresh water fill, city water connection, black flush connecter, clearly marked dump handle markings, etc.

4. Battery shutoff. (I added)

5. Access to bathroom and frig with slide closed. (I have)

6. Decent tires.

7. Pullout shelves in the kitchen cabinets (pantry).

8. Drawers in the master bedroom for clothes.

9. Rear Ladder. (I have)

10. Electric jacks and awning. (I have)

11. Tinted windows. (I have)

12. Large dual grey water tanks so I don't have to dump them in the woods (j/k), I mean at the dump station before I'm ready to break camp. (I have)

For a 5th wheel, it would be nice to have some options available for the pin box. Choices between standard, Reese Revolution, Mor/ryde or Rotoflex for example.

As an order out unit I can see the draw in flexibility in pin boxes. For the record Wildcat did try that a few years ago and what we found with retail demand was that the standard was most popular. After talking to most of the dealers they felt the aftermarket was probably best suited for this kind of feature. What we found was really two reasons. Customers didn't want to up charge for it at time of ordering. The second reason was that they didn't know which one to buy as so many hitches had features that were so different. Not against the idea but after two years of optioning them we went back to the hitch we currently have and surprisingly no request have come up for it again..

FYI

I assure you of you would like it I would gladly make it an option for you. Let me know when anyone wants to order one and we would be happy to help you. I only wanted everyone to know we did try this and it didn't go far that's all... I really do like the ideas and want them flowing so thank you in advance and heck maybe we should try it again...
