I'd like a smart controller to manage two of our three air conditioners. All we have now is a switch to toggle between the front sleeper and the rear garage, which means somebody is going to roast.


You have 3 air conditioners in your RV ????? [emoticon] How big is this thing ???

In the days when I was growing up before Central Air was in homes we only had one Window AC for a 3 bedroom home. And, no, the house was not well insulated and did not have very good windows.


It's 44.5 feet.

We're in Southern Utah this week and it just now dipped into the 80s at 10:30 pm. The displays on our cheapo thermostats only go up to 99° and the temps in the front bedroom with the AC shut off have been pinned at 99° since 10:00 this morning. I'm sure it was hotter in there though.

1) stainless steel roof (NO rubber!!!!)

Stainless is very pricey,
More so then aluminum even,Airstream uses .035 thicknes I think
Check the price of that and see why no one uses SS.

Certain types of ruber is totaly aceptable as roofing material
In case you want to build a house truck [emoticon]

Plastic roof might be even better

I don't think this tread has to do with getting your permission or opinion on a Wish List. It is a wish list, not a discussion on what you think about their wish...

I wish for tires, wheels, spindles, axles, springs and brakes that are not pathetic. After that I could wish for the pretty stuff.

We have what we want now. After having travel trailers, tents, pop ups and a 40 foot dp motor home we have exactly what we want and this will be our last one.
Honestly we don't want anything different. It did take about two years of searching different makes and floor plans.

Well we just got ours this year so it'll be awhile. It checked the majority of our "wishlist" items off after experience with toyhaulers.

The one thing I didn't get was being under 30' while still having gen prep as an option. That apparently isn't a thing, so we got the shortest we could find that did have the gen prep (34').
