What is your dream rig?

Suppose money were not a consideration, what AS and TV (or toad) combo would you go with? And what would your RV port at home look like?

(Why yes, I am bored today)

Turbodiesel AWD TV set up for maximum performance (handling/braking, fuel economy) in towing a triple axle trailer of 30+ feet. Eliminating propane in favor of diesel powered appliances would also be nice. Generator.

Home base would be small square footage plus large screened porch coupled via shared roof to a fully-enclosed garage for TT plus TV plus local transport/other machinery (on a relatives piece of land adjacent to their home). Great landscaping. Nice security. Full basement for utilities and workshop. The in-law suite on steroids (for when retirement is less active). Hopefully, four season climate. Etc.

My only wish is that my traylah had been made with the quality and loving individualized craftsmanship and attention to detail that we romantically ascribe to traylahs for the Days of Yore.

And with better quality appliances than Atwood or Suburban make, but still rv-centric.

I like my 31 footer a lot, but it is a bit unwieldy for those hard to reach places, if you know what I mean. So I'd slip down a notch or two, perhaps no longer than a 27 - but nicely appointed. Soft leather, solar out the wazzoo, hardwood floors instead of carpet. Perhaps a nice Persian to keep my tootsies warm. Cat heater. Awnings all 'round, of course - ZipDees, natch.

As for TV, my Duramax/Allison - and 3/4 ton is plenty. Crew cab, hard tonneau. Oh yes - it has to be red. Leather and all the fixin's for the TV, too, of course.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.
