I would really like to see the Day/Night shades go away in favor of fabric roller shades. Many companies make a quality roller shade now, and they are highly preferable in my opinion.

If I had to restring one more day/night shade I will lose my mind!

Put some cedar in the bedroom closet, dark color for the night shade, a (2) recliner option instead of theater seating in the 340RK, add an outside lp connection for a gas grill, plumb the rear gray tank on the 340RK forward to the common dump line, drop frame on more models,(this adds more storage).

and if the kitchen had a rolling island. this adds counterspace without taking up room along the walls.
X2 again

Paint the front storage door the same color as the coach instead of a white door that stands out...
Match the lower side of the compartment doors the same color as the lines of the coach. Some pictures on the brochures have the lower section of the doors that match the lines other pictures on the WEB don't.

I think larger Rvs should have a cubby for a laptop this day and age. A fold up and down would conserve space.
I don't like roller shades...the spring mechanism always breaks, but it could be an option.
Built in surge protection would be a huge selling point. See the many threads about it.
As often as possible the Ent Center should face the seating....I laugh when I look at an RV that expects me to crane my neck 90 degrees to watch TV.
Not model specific, but no more toilet-only toilet rooms where the sink is in another area. I see many like this. Gross. One should be able to wash one's hands before touching the door knob to leave the room to get to the sink. Mine is like this and I had to install a sanitizer dispenser, but it burns my skin.
Self wash and wax exterior is a must! Us RV owners don't have time to be hand waxing. We want to enjoy nature. (LOL, JK)
Straighten out the Lippert dilemna. See the threads. Specifically, consumers buy the RVs from you. You choose the parts to put in it. STOP deferring to Lippert to decide if a frame failure is covered under YOUR warranty. No other industry is like this. Stand behind 100% of your product and stop hiding behind the suppliers. You are in the position with huge market share and economies of scale to demand better from your suppliers.
Thanks for asking!!!!!

Just recieved my first fithwheel the 320rs 2014. DW and I couldn't be happerier. Getting ready to take out on first trip. One thing that hits me are the slide outs. You must go inside to press the buttons to open the slides. Onthe 320 rs this is a huge blind spot on the drivers side in the event of a forgotten power pole or low branch. I suggest a least two switches in the drivers basement or Santi-station where you can open/close the slides from out side and make sure your are missing that power pole or tree branch.
Also this would be really convient to do since I have to open the basement door anywhere to lower the legs.

Hope this helps.

Good rule of thumb is 5or 6 feet all the way around your RV. Use both of your arms outstretched as a way measure. You still want clearance with all slide out so you can walk around them when done.

So, if you walk to each slide, stretch out both arms, confirm nothing to hit, you are good to go. No need for switches on outside of RV. I'm more concerned with carpet/flooring and rubber seals getting beat up vs hitting something when I extend the slides. This is why I like the switches on the inside.

I saw a front bike holder on an A line camper this weekend and thought it was the greatest idea!

My main wish for the 233S would probably be drawer space, maybe a built in cabinet next to fridge on the left with drawers? There is a hook up there for a tv but you could probably adjust that so that you could use it for a tv or for coffee maker, toaster, etc.

I also wish the soap/shampoo holders actually held something. Maybe have something with a bar to hold it in place?

Thank you for your request It's nice to be heard

Thanks for the quick respons Mr. Z and Joelek. I also think switch should be inside as well. I had forgotten about remote control switches available now days. I also like Joelek's recommendation about arms streched out on all sides. I could even possibily get some kinks out after a long drive! LOL.

Thanks all.
