Absolutly!

I like the idea on compiling a list then doing a pole, the people that attend the rally could just present the pole. It would be clear which upgrades are most wanted then a list that would show fixes that need to happen.

Preferably in the rear, curbside portion of the coach...not in the basement. The DRV's have theirs in this location, the cord extends from under the coach, there is a door on the side for control.

Capturing TNTBaker's request:
I would. I think its a lot of vinyl in the living room! It looks nice, but a fabric sofa is also nice.

I was sorry to see the wood radius walls go away in the hall around the bathroom, in favor of printed wallboard, but that is just me.

This is what I mean. In these 2 short pages we have 21 different items. If a person goes to them with a few serious issues like the residential refrigerator or the pantry doors that affect many units, they most likely would listen. If we present a list a full page or longer, they may think we are nit-picking and not pay any real attention, especially where addressing these issues would take time and cost. Many of these things can be taken care of my ourselves, especially where they don't address everybody. I put in a power cord reel myself, probably cheaper that if it was an option. A person can have a surge protector permanently mounted if they want to. A water filter can be put wherever it works best for the owner. I may not want mine located where you do. There are many minor issues out there that could cause the major ones to be overlooked.

I think it's import and to separate the needed fix items from the wish list of option items. But I don't think a wish list of wanted options rated by popularity would turn them off by any means. like a power cord real, These trailers have a marine connection on the back cap, how would you put a power cord real on that yourself and still keep the power cord attached to the trailer? I know I won't be cutting a hole in the side of my trailer any time soon! I think it's funny Tiffin Motorhomes can put surge protectors on their $125k MSRP coaches but Redwood can't? I haven't seen anything unreasonable listed here but I agree there needs to be separation of wished for options and needed, usability/Quality control fixes.

Agreed, Blue Dogs. Often times, when we are deciding on a coach... most of them have the boxes checked for the big things. Sometimes it comes down to the collection of smaller, more innovative/thoughtful things that make the decision. Right or wrong, Redwood has a LOT of good things going on, but there are a couple of other coaches that we were looking at in the SAME price range that were giving them a run for their money. The "Trilogy" DOES have a nice, more residential cook top in it, and I was sad to leave that behind when we decided on the Redwood. Especially, at the RV Show when the RW factory rep (Vern) told us that he hadn't "heard of" another kind of cooktop!! I said, "step next door and look in one of the motorhomes and you'll see them all day." It causes you to lose faith that they TRULY know their products' competition.
The sliding cutting board with the garbage can below (which he showed me twice) is an example of a "small thing" that has BIG impact with some people. It's not exactly a structural, big-deal thing, but it made POINTS with people. Every little point counts when you are at an RV show!

So here's what you do - collect the info and screen out the stuff you don't want on the list you actually present. If you think all members are going to magically produce the same opinion as yours, think again.
