Ok, Iím having a dilemmaÖ I have a 2013 RS320 that I love, added insulation and eternabond. But want a second ac unit and JT Strongarms. All the things most of the 2016ís come from the factory. Sooooooo. Should I trade it in or upgrade my current rig?

The amount of money you'll lose trading in is way more than the upgrades will cost.

I just added a 2nd AC unit, installed it myself. The unit was just over $725 including the freight. The toughest part was getting the old vent removed with all the caulk and bedding compound. Also the Columbus roof is fairly "thick" so I needed to customize some longer clamping screws by using threaded rod. The part I most feared turned out fine, "how to get the unit on the roof"...it was actually easy, get an extension ladder and use it as an incline plane and pull (slide)it right up using a rope...of course I had help at the top and bottom of the ladder!!!
I'll bet just the cost of the taxes etc will cover the cost of the few upgrades....

If you trade you may have more headaches than you want. New quality is not good.
