We all love our RV's, but we can't have it all. Each model has something that is a royal pain.
My first RV was a Fleetwood Jamboree, Model 24D (24 foot). It was "just a camping" RV, not much more. I liked it, for an "RV with training wheels." However, the one PITA feature was that there was ONE TV, in the front, and although you could view the TV from the bed area, the remote control wouldn't reach that far. So, if you were in bed watching TV, and you needed to turn the TV off, or maybe change channels, you had to get out of bed and walk up to the TV to turn it off, or walk to an area within the range of the remote. Ok, I admit, that was laziness....... But the RV was great, and I cried a few tears when I traded it in!
Second RV was Forest River Model 2860. I LOVED that RV. However, the one PITA feature was that the shower, well, you had to take a GIANT STEP UP into the shower. For those that are young, hale, and hearty, this would not be an issue. For those whose joints are starting to creak, well, this could be a problem, not to mention, what if you fell while taking the giant step DOWN to get out of the shower. Ok, I'm only 52, but that part did start to concern me. But I still cried when I traded it in..... (On the other hand, that model had TWO grey water tanks, one for the kitchen/bathroom sink, one for the shower. That was a pretty neat feature! I will miss that!)
Now (as of yesterday), I have a Forest River Model 3120 (and I LOVE the HUGE bathroom!). Ok, there is one PITA feature in this unit! The "extension" (the part that folds down, but when you fold it up, you have more counter space....) off the sink area, well, when you have it UP in order to use it for counter space, well, nobody can come in the entry door! Because the "fold up counter space extension" guts into the entry doorway. As one of my friends said, "um, if you have that extension up, and one of your friends comes to visit, they will get knocked in the solar plexus when they come through the door." Well, as a solo traveller, I guess I could consider that a "safety" feature. When I go to sleep, I'll just make sure the extension is up, blocking the doorway, and if someone tries to get in....... WHACK, right in the solar plexus! On the other hand, if they try to come in through the driving area doors..... well.... KITTY WILL GET THEM!
So what other models have PITA features in them?
