Its funny not one had disk brakes or 17.5" wheels it seems like no one listens to what PPL want. None of them had the third AC or Dual heat pumps. Lots of LED Lights on counters not that I care for that. I did like the new awning covers. The new steps hurt when walking up them in sock feet but I did like that the carpet was gone.
That's the difference between the New buyer and the OLD buyers. The new buyers are looking at the glitter and flash. They have dreams of independence while they travel freely through the country side without the worries of the boss or the stick and brick homes. Unfortunately these folks can end up with a surprise and many times "buyers remorse".
The Old buyer looks under and around the coach for maintenance issues and although they have fantasies of traveling freely through the country side, they're also aware of the probable issues. Although they're happy with their purchase, they also hold their breath when leaving the dealership with their new RV, fearful of the potential issues.
Both of these buyers spend hard earned money to follow a dream of freedom and adventure. Unfortunately I believe the RV companies must find it easier to cater to the New Buyer because they keep building more glitz and glitter into their units instead of strength and reliability. The same problems occur year after year while the glitz and glitter keeps getting brighter.
