Ok, I'm looking for ideas . Floor plans , product improvement , options, must haves, and overall brain storming. Great changes can come from the smallest of ideas, so send em my way.

I usually have a lot of ideas....could you narrow down the topic?

for the 340RK, take the counter extension, that separates the kitchen from the living room and replace it with a movable island, like the one in the 320RS.

Added led lights under the bunk in the garage for better lighting when we eat at the dinnette. Kids have fun with them also doing a disco light show

Columbus 320rs.
Add a second slideout on the bedroom. Maybe a weight issue?

Change LED light vendors.
Instead of lasting years we've already had over a half dozen LED arrays fail since buying out unit at the end of August. They either start blinking or become dim and than fail. We have a high-end surge suppressor on the unit and never have any indications of problems that would damage the unit.

The plank flooring is to fragile.

Change from three steps to four step entry.

Love the constant improvements you are always providing as an example I feel lucky to have the conduit from the basement to the roof. It's been super helpful.

Love our unit and it's a challenge to make suggestions.

I don't think you guys need any help. You started out with the 320RS and it is very well planned out. Then you keep making changes to make it even better. I love ours and so does everyone that sees it. I like going and looking at new campers, and everyone we go into is twice the money and we always say the same thing. I like ours better. I see Hartland now has the Gateway. I think when your competition copies what you are already doing, you must be doing it right. I think it's great that you care enough to ask people what they want. Thank You.
Happy camper

I sent a pm in regards to the 385BH since that's what we have. Already building some great campers but there's always room for a few tweaks.

I haven't actually taken delivery of mine yet, but, I know the TV's are listed as being very modern & high quality Smart LED's. So why not an Apple TV & WiFi range booster built in? I want to talk my boss into allowing me to work remotely a few weeks a year, and to do so, I'll need connectivity.

Also I'm truly amazed that power hookups are raw, and the units do not come with factory surge suppression, error detection & even optional brownout protection. With all of the expensive electronics people have now, these really are not options, but are required. I'll be installing something in my before I ever use it. One of the other brands does come standard with something like the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C, but he did not know it until he read his manual(and this is why I'd previously asked about manuals) .
