Total Renoation... Must Haves???
I have made few significant changes to either of my coaches, but four signficant changes to my Overlander are among my favorites. The first is a Dometic 3-Way RV refrigerator -- no more worries about the refrigerator while traveling or refueling -- it even has AES (Automatic Energy Selector) so it automatically switches over to DC operation when the 120 Volt AC and LP Gas are disconnected. I had this change made nearly ten years ago and wouldn't consider any other refrigerator. The second modification was the addition of solar panels and a DC Inverter system with three AGM batteries on the Overlander -- it makes long-term travel a pleasure, and makes the option of boondocking more palatable. The third was having custom mattresses manufactured for the center twin beds -- the comfort level is as good or better than the bedroom furniture in my home. The fourth was replacing the two factory roof vents with Fantastic Vents with thermostat, rain sensor, and thre speeds -- with one operating on intake and the other operating in exhaust mode, the interior can be kept acceptably comfortable under most circumstances.
