not in any particular order:
-More time off!
-ceiling 6" higher (I think I have broken everything attached to the ceiling with my head at least once; not much I can do about this except duck!)
-longer bed
-an external propane port (good call by AS on the 2013's)
-electric stabilizers

Hi, and....
no air conditioner.

I may want solar power, but I will still have my generator.

Padded edges on the overhead lockers! Last time I hit my head on one I cut my poor bald head deep enough to leave a scar. Luckily the locker door was undamaged except for a bloodstain.

Storage cabinets that are bigger on the inside than on the outside.

Free WiFi that's not slower than molasses in January.

More time off from work so I can go camping more often.

Air conditioning that will hit 65F when it's 105F outside.

For me comfort is of first order. I am not camping in a tent and sleeping on the ground any longer. Last week I pulled out part of the front dinette and put in a nice comfortable swivel rocker recliner. Also soon after buying the trailer added a two inch foam pad to the couch/bed. That made all the difference in sleeping comfort.

OK, my wife won't let me get any of the "fire dancers" I picked out. Please post details on the one you have, and maybe she'll let me get one of those. --Thanks!

I like this "fire dancer suggestion by Janet". She must be a real cool chick?

Unfortunately, I live in Canada and they probably would get held up in the Customs inspection, just like everything else I order from out of Country.

Probably less exciting than what you had in mind but more useful..... Outdoor fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor gas fireplace, propane fireplace

It has consistently high reviews on Amazon. This one looks to be better made and have a better fire look than the others I have seen. It seems every time I go camping there is a burn ban on and I have been looking for a portable fire pit to use.

Oh, I misunderstood. when i saw "Fire Dancer" it took me back to the memory of the first time I was chopping up habanero peppers and had to go visit the tree and didn't think about the powder on my hands, and well......fire dancer would be an understatement.

How about this as a compromise then!!! LOL!
By the way, if I actually find one of these it is absolutely going in the Airstream!

With average use and gas flow about how long does a 20lb bottle of gas last for you?
