Totally agree with all posts. In my fiver, the water filter is under the sink behind a backer board that is screwed to braces. I have to empty everything under the sink, unscrew the backer board and then try to unscrew the filter cover (which is still full of water) and try and twist it out over pipes without spilling water all over the place. Not to mention working in a space that is about 24" x 24". Great for smurfs but not the rest of us. Thanks for letting me vent.

Rv'ing is best when its maintenance/customization is also a hobby. The basic product can be revised, updated and repaired to one's own specs, which is part of the fun of being an owner for me.

I have a friend with a party barge and we laugh at each other as we compare notes on who spends the most time and money on maintenance. Every trip out opens up new opportunities for repair or mods. All in all both turn out to be very enjoyable hobbies! Have built a lot of enjoyable memories with over 170 camping in 3.5 years in the Marriot on wheels. Just glad I know enough to repair a lot of things and have this forum to learn and ask the things I do not know! My dream is to go into CW without leaving a chunk of cash, if not me DW.

I have to agree too. The designers at Dynamax obviously aced their decorator courses but, have never USED the products they make look so pretty. In my DX3-37RB, it was actually built using 1/8" FIBERBOARD as the support for dresser drawers. The first drawer slides came loose on the third trip (I'm surprised it made it that long).

Rv oxymorons, continued

How about the number of people a camper will sleep? Always take the number that is advertised and then divide by two! My husband says our camper will sleep six as long as he is not one of them! Ha!

Our '02 Georgetown came with an "Owners' Manual". It was so vague and non-specific to our particular model, it was only good for firelighter.
