I have been RV'ing since the 60's and have owned 1 or more of every type of RV. I have always had to add what I would call convenience items like towel racks, shower stuff holders, spice racks, magazine racks, key holders, clothes hooks, garbage cans, laundry baskets and a host of other things that go beyond personalizing items. Between saving a buck and designers who obviously never spent a night in an RV, but decorate it with useless eye candy, I'm not surprised customer loyalty is not a manufacturers strong suit. I have had 4 pick-up campers, 4 travel trailers, 2 motorhomes, 1 pop-up and 1 fifth-wheel and I have never purchased the same brand twice. Between poor customer service, quality issues and suitability, fool me once, shame on you! I'm looking for my 2nd fifth-wheel.

Frames that wouldn't crack/break, axles that wouldn't bend, and tires that wouldn't blow up.

those of you without a HTT, this thread is about changes to that type of RV.
please trying following the intent of the thread.
there are plenty of other threads for ranting about quality in the RV industry.

What, the HTTs have better frames, tires, and axles?
I seriously doubt it.

We have a 19' Roo. Is it just me or is there any reason to have the dinky little bathroom sink 4 feet away from the kitchen sink? Just think of the size of the shower stall there could be by ditching the bathroom sink.

Gross... Just like the RV's that have the bathroom sink outside of the bathroom. I think it's a great idea to wash your hands after going potty! And not in the kitchen sink! Some things just gotta be where they need to be, no matter how small...

the correct acronym is "HTT" or Hybrid Travel Trailer, not HHT.
a HTT is a hybrid blend of a popup with a hard-sided travel trailer.
most have canvas queen bed bunk ends, similar to those on a popup, but the rest of the trailer is a conventional travel trailer.
most are owned by former popup owners who want more amenities and less setup.

there has been a HTH or Hybrid Toy Hauler, though
