When we bought our new camper this year my wife asked about a few "extras" such as a television & oven. I inquired about the sewer & fresh water hoses. The salesman, who we purchased our pop up from, told us that those extras really inflate the prices of campers if the manufacturer adds them as standard equipment. That makes sense. We were also offered 20% off of there store prices the day we bought our camper. I refuse to purchase items from the dealership stores. The prices a really inflated. With internet shopping available I can find the exact same items for at least 1/3 cheaper than the dealership store. I can find just about everything I want through Amazon & as a Prime Member just about everything has free shipping. I would much rather go out and by the "extras" and get what I want instead of excepting whatever the manufacturer supplies. Even if the manufacturer recommends certain brands I can find them much cheaper somewhere else.

Enjoy the new camper. We really enjoyed our first trip this past weekend.

SKnight has a pretty extensive list (Think I will steal it for my RV 101 files )

If you have not bought your stuff yet, you can get an even better deal on Amazon (especially if you are a Prime member!)

In almost every case, your RV dealer, Camping World, or a RV-specific store will be MUCH more costly than Wal-Mart or Amazon

Saw you comment about TVs in RVs. This usually depends on the "package" you buy - for instance our package came with 2 TVs - on in the LR and the other in the BR.

Does your RV have a space earmarked for a TV?

Speaking of add-ons, we met a wonderful couple camping a couple of weeks ago. They are now members here but I'll leave it to them to self-identify.

They bought their Puma without the microwave and installed one themselves. From the factory: $600.00
Installed themselves: $100.00



A surge protector is a MUST. Yes, they can be pricey, but one time plugging in to bad shore power at a camp site can cost you thousands of dollars in fried RV components.

Surge Guard RV Power Portable 120 240 50amp Protector | eBay

Prices vary, so shop around; Camping World, eBay, Amazon, etc.

My TT didn't come with a TV set so I picked one up from Costco. Dealership gave a starter kit but like most people I upgraded the sewer hose and fresh water hose right away.

What comes with it...

...well, dreams ... and if you look behind all the drawers and into the duct work, ... sawdust!...

Best of luck. Have lots of fun. It's a great lifestyle.

I see a lot of people claiming RV TP is expensive, but when we bought our TT we picked up 5 packs of the stuff for like 5 bucks. That's only 0.25 per roll.

I remember when we were looking, it basically came down to "If it has a TV mount already installed, a TV is included. If not, then not."

Can't agree with this more. Especially the fuse for the tongue jack. I went through a ton of those learning where the proper time to stop is. If you run it until it stops on it's own, it's blown a fuse.
