My wife believes I look at RV’s too much, she’s probably right as I do love to look at them and see what possibilities there are for the future. I feel the more I look the more ideas I’ll get for our current rig since we will be keeping it for awhile. (ok, so that’s what I say anyway!)
I see the more expensive the rig the more of them have the TV in the dining area where it’s harder to see and they almost always have two couches which makes no sense to me.
Take this picture for example, this is the interior of a 2011 Newmar Dutch Star. Look where the TV is, I don’t know about you but this just seems to be in the way of the wife's domain, only a man would design something like this. Don’t get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for Newmar but this is a fault of many of the luxury brands out today, not just Newmar. So, when the wife and I will finally be able to afford a newer rig this type of setup will be out of the question.
I like the ones that have a desk built in, call me old fashioned but put the TV up front, heck make it be attached to the ceiling so I can lower it now we’re talking! Our TV is mounted in the dashboard and when we drive the weight causes the dash to noticeably shimmy up and down as we drive. I catch myself holding the top left of the TV to keep it still even though the coach was designed this way. Still, I’d like to toss that pile of crap old TV for a proper HD LCD. So I’m going to remove the TV this Spring and see what our options are. This summer we will make this pain in the ass RV our own and if I could win a stereo sound quality competition I can surely figure out how to get this set up properly and so it looks factory. Another reason why I look at a lot of RV’s online.
Oh yeah! 50 Days, 10 hours, 11 minutes and 10 seconds!!
