Here is a simple one that would REALLY help a lot. Put another water pump switch in the bathroom.

And put a valve on the city water connection that allows me to fill the on board water tank without having to connect another hose. Just be able to turn the switch to fill one or the other.

The kitchen table is a (bad) joke. The three piece design is just bad; on my unit, the third piece(leaf) is simply broken because of the press board used for the rails, and the two pieces on the main table to not match up correctly, and are not even the same thickness.

The latches that hold the doors open; who thought making them out of plastic was a good idea? Really?

Again, there is a reason.

Come on our lot and look at 300 RV's, and find some without a plastic door holder.

There are two options....Winnebago uses an aluminum bar that you put in and take out of clamps, and the hydraulic struts that are typically used when the awning arms are mounted behind the doors.

Only 2 options for cargo doors as well.....hydraulic struts, or the magnetc latches that Prime Time uses (which, we have found don't do very well in wind either)

These aren't aluminum skinned horse trailers, they are thin fiberglass sided, and you would much rather fix a broken plastic t bar than patch and repair holes in the fiberglass skin when the screws are ripped out of the sidewall.

O.K., I'll accept the plastic latches.

How about clearly and correctly labeling the water hose connections in the wet bay
