What options do you have that you'll never do without again?
What options do you have that sounded good but that you hardly use?
As for me auto leveling is the greatest! I really like that option!!
Least thing is the grill in the outside kitchen. Now I like the kitchen for making my coffee and the small fridge but the grill will get little or no use.

Our previous travel trailer had a storage door that opened and we could pull down a propane stove. It also had a small sink with a hot and cold faucet, with the blue coiled hose. I attached a garden hose sprayer to it. It was great for washing dishes outside.

Our 5er does not have a shower or faucet on the front. It does have a faucet in the wet bay on the back side. I can run a garden hose from there, under the trailer to the other side and use it that way, but it's not convenient. I miss the shower sink on the font side.

The other thing that we absolutely, absolutely, absolutely love with this 5er is the fact it has a door on each side of the camper ... front and back. After we added an electric awning over the back door, it's been the greatest change ever. We respect the distance on the back side of the 5er encroaching on the next campsite over by positioning the camper giving room to the back side. The real sweetness of the back door on the other side is it's functionality at home. At home, the back is the front, the front is the back. And if camped in some unusual designed campsites, it doesn't matter if we are forward or backward, both sides can be used as the front.

The self-leveling system is OK, but I've had my share of issues with it. After a year, I still have not mastered it's idiosyncrasies.

The residential refrigerator has sure simplified thing ... really!

Pretty much, everything else we did not like, I changed. For example, the shower has a mixer in it. But because of the mixer, the water never truly gets "hot". So, I pulled the faucet, reversed the pipes. Now, that single knob starts all HOT and the farther you turn it, the cooler it gets. Now... it's NEVER completely cold! I think that was the most frustrating thing about this 5er, but I solved that problem.

Other than that, very happy with it. I kind of wish the outside speakers were a little louder.
