The top 3 things you want in your RV…

I recently read an article about the ‘Top 3 things consumers look for in a new RV’.  I wanted to share that article with my readers.  I find it interesting how things have changed over the years.  Not too long ago, sleeping capacity and arrangements were the #1 choice in determining the RV of your dreams. Do you disagree or agree with the results of the new poll?  Let us know what you think…

We listed 12 of the most popular items people look for when they are choosing an RV.

The poll results are in and surprise – Every one wants a large kitchen counter top. Now I don’t think everyone is asking for a gourmet kitchen. However, a sink cover isn’t really counter top. Hint, hint manufacturers!

Second on the list makes me feel better. I thought I was the only one who liked a large shower. Well it came in at #2.  As I age my waist seems to add inches and a larger shower is a very nice thing.

Third, and this makes a lot of sense, is residential sized beds. It’s easier to replace a mattress and get linens etc. Thanks for voting!

Here are the rest of the results:

  • 25% Large Kitchen Counter Top
  • 18% Large Shower
  • 16% Residential Sized Bed
  • 9% All-In-One Bath
  • 7% Table / Computer Desk Combo
  • 5% Free Standing Dining Table
  • 5% Dinette
  • 4% Split Bath
  • 4% Bath and a Half
  • 3% Sofa Bed
  • 2% Fireplace
  • 2% Bunk Beds

    Lerch RV.

    A large kitchen counter-top is what you want most in your new RV.

  1. Our old 70’s model RV’s had counter extensions that folder down. So your counter could double in size just by folding out the extra counter pieces. Also, our table folded into the wall. This afford so much more room for living when you weren’t eating. Seems the manufactures have lost some of that ingenuity for space saving that we used to see.

    • Open Range offers a free standing dinette table that can seat 7. The table contains to drop in table leaves that expand the length of the table. Plus they offer two additional folding chairs. This table is optional in the Journeyer series travel trailer and standard in the Open Range & Residential 5th wheel line ups. Also keep in mind that customer wants and trends, sometimes drives the manufacturer’s ingenuity.
