Only correction, remove "Heat Pump" and replace with CheapHeat!!!

To add to your list, Bosch 220V clothes washer, Whirlpool 220V Dryer, FischerPaykal Dishwasher and full size KitchenAid side by side refrigerator.


agree the side by side is a great addition to glamping, Our last Redwood had the Fischer-Paykal, this one has a Dehco, wife loves it so much better!


Have not heard of Dehco. I have had no issues with the FP as I am the operator most of the time.

If mind takes a dump I will look into that brand.

Full Body Paint.

Is it really worth the 10k additional cost?

When the rig is well north of 100k I feel it is.

Add another $4000.00 if it was a paint job on an older fifth.

Next door last winter spent $15000.00 to paint their 2010 carriage fifth. It looked beautiful.

Our camper sets in a shop probably ~90% of the year and we don't live in it so full body paint and some of the options listed here are not worth it to us.

Only wish I had the insulated windows. Although I would also pay extra for disk brakes.

Have used the oven maybe four times in 15 years... they can keep the next one.

Love the auto-level, and negotiated with the dealer to include slide toppers.
Would never have another without them!!

My 5th wheel came with an outside TV...it's never even been turned on.

It also came with the Sani-conĀ® Turbo waste system. Thought it was really cool, but after using it a couple times, not so much. Went back to just using the old hose.

I like being able to bring my bike so the mororcycle lift is nice. I appreciate my disc brakes, but I don't think I would pay to install them on a trailer that didnt come with them.
