I too like the Onan Generator option on the Adventurer 89RBS. The slide was one option the dear wife had to have. These two options come with a weight factor but for us they were a must have.

My only issue with having a slide is the added weight.

I'm pretty much at my limit.

The generator was a must for me.

I bought my camper used and the generator didn't work. I had it looked at and it needed a new stator and armature. The stator is no longer available but could have been rewound in CA.

Being that the generator was nearly 25 years old, even though it didn't have a lot of hours on it I bought a new one. [emoticon]

They are pricey. [emoticon]

We are certainly all different. The last thing I want is a propane generator. It is often difficult to find propane while traveling. Gas is everywhere. I certainly do not want a 110v coffee pot. I rarely have hook ups and would not want to blast the generator first thing in the morning just for coffee.

We're traveling back from Quartzite now after attending the first TCA rally. I just found the second of 2 plastic clips that hold down my clear cover floating on the blackout screen.
The idea is great, the design is 50%. They really need to make the components stronger. The retractable screens get weak and I've re-torqued the spring adjustments.
So this morning I'm seeing winds and fortunately no rain in sight but the cover is floating. We'll secure it for the last 6 hrs of travel. It's a love/hate relationship.

I don't "travel" per say, just to where I'm going camping which is almost always out in the mountains somewhere where there there are no other people.

I always have plenty of propane with me so I never worry about running out.

There's no one around me when I fire up my generator first thing in the morning to brew a pot of coffee.

I LOATH campgrounds because they are always full of people.

And I don't want to be parked next to some old goat that whines about everything.

Now back to the topic.....

What do you like about your camper??

Not hate about mine.........

Exactly, why I sold the 36’ 5th Wheel and bought a TC so we can get away from those crowded RV Parks and State Campgrounds and Boondock off the highway with our UTV. Yes I’m different, ordered the Adventurer with Solar Power and Generator because Propane is readily available in the Northwest.
