Fast hydraulic landing gear / 6 point self leveling system. Level up is great and comes with fast landing gear, thus no standing there as slow electric legs extend or retract.

All steel ply tires. Chris

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.


Auto-level is the bomb!

Had a grill with my old Komfort and it was nearly worthless. Don't know about you, but I like a little char on my burgers, dogs and steaks. Grey meat, even if done, just isn't appetizing. Also, we've gotten to the point where, when boondocking for a few days, we bring prepared foods in the freezer or fridge, or simple stuff that's easy to fix and clean up. When we're at a full-hookup campground, we'll have snacks in the FW, but will likely go out to eat, since we're usually there to NOT be in the campground, but out seeing the sights. [emoticon]

Electric awning is meh. I worry whenever a gust of wind comes up and it's out. I'd take a manual awning any day. Thinking about putting slide toppers on, though.

Still not a huge fan of the "convenience station" for all the water hookups. On my rig, it's flimsy and I worry about ripping it loose when turning valves or hooking up the hose. I =do= like the winterizing siphon and used it for the first time just a few weeks ago. Ran out of water while boondocking and used it to empty a blue cube into the fresh tank for final cleanup and bathroom before leaving. Surprised me that the pump started as soon as I turned the valves into the "siphon" position. I still don't like not having a gravity feed, though.

Even though they're pretty well industry standard, I LOVE the LED lights throughout. Power use is way, WAY down!

Ken, Not to Hijack,

We are really contemplating the Trav'ler for next year.... We use the Pathway X2 now and want to be able to watch different Sats on different TV's... How much do you like it>
Trav'ler is the only way to get Directv HD. We use wireless mini's and each of our four TV's can watch something different. Nice thing is the mini's bypass the trailer's coax system and all the troubles it can cause.

For me: FischerPaykal Dishwasher, stackable washer/dryer, 3rd AC, Heat pump, rear hitch for bike rack.

What I'd skip next time: Generator prep. I dont ever see us with perm generator, just take the 3K Champion for the 1 time a year parking lot camping for football game. The gen prep really messes up the front storage space.
