Practical stuff that will actually happen:

* replace skylights with Maxims
* build custom insert to hold shoes for the cavity at the starboard end of the lounge (I think it was intended for ZipDee chairs)

Blue sky stuff that will likely never happen:

* higher quality countertops with molded edges
* some magic coating on the aluminum that doesn't corrode and never requires waxing/maintenance
* More control over airflow in the ductwork on the ductless AC
* AS actually insulating the ductwork
* relocating the TV antenna so I can fit a cover on the Fantastic Fan (2015/2016 specific)

We plan to replace the Classic's Fantastic fan with the same brand 'weather' shroud with the Maxxfan 7000K like we installed in the 23d. For us, the Maxxfan is much better design, better built and does stick up like a sore thumb 24/7 when to in use.

A different emergency exit from the bedroom of our 27FB. Talking with Colonial about either putting a door in the bedroom where the current exit window is or possibly putting another exit window directly underneath the current one so God forbid we need it, we don't have to choose throwing our 70lb bloodhound out the window or leaving her behind while we try to exit (if we can).

I really think they should come with 2 doors from the factory.

Replace my convection/ microwave oven with a stove top /gas oven and drawers where i removed the convection. Then I'll have to figure out where to install a small microwave. I'm pretty sure that a good cabinet maker will be able to figure out where to install the microwave and install the drawers in the void of the convection. Other than this we love our AS since many of the items mentioned by the previous posters ave been accomplished by us.

As I have completed many changes to my current Serenity, I will be upgrading more slowly. But, the sound system will get some changes....possibly using Polk Audio bookshelf speakers installed facing reward into cutouts in the upper storage over the recliners. This involves moving the current Clarion head unit to over the DVD Player, possibly upgrading this to a much better unit, eliminating the subwoofer as the bookshelf speakers would have sufficient bass.

The television will receive a sound bar below it.

One of the recliners can easily be moved into the center aisle and faced forward when a serious listening event is planned and I suspect the quality would be substantially improved over the bizarre down facing current speakers..... In fact, the open hole would be fabric covered and allow the bass port on the new speakers to function.

Installation of the new speakers would require an attachment to the actual rib structure of the AS, this to prevent too much weight in the overhead compartment.

Also, some Ham Radio Gear will be worked into the over all plan, possibly eliminating the road side recliner in favor of a bench seat with storage underneath. Outside....big antenna....

And then......

My wish list for my 2015 BAMBI 16' SPORT:

Leather recliner to replace front dinette table. I believe it can happen...maybe next spring?

Memory foam 4-5" mattress on top of current factory mattress...maybe in spring?

Honda generator...(for boondocking). $$$. Also, a place to transport it. (Not in the SUV!)

The ability to travel and camp....MUCH MORE FREQUENTLY!


Improbable, but, dream list: more functional storage space.

Awaken one morning to find myself 20 years younger!! LOL! Evelyn.

P.S. (I did say, "improbable!")

@ColoradoLady

I have a four inch feather bed on my OEM mattress and it really is a dream to sleep on. Comfortable enough that I decided to forgo the installation of a Select Comfort mattress as I had on my moho.

6. Stainless covers for furnace, water heater, and city water inlet
7. Stainless liners for water compartment, street side storage, and rear bumper storage
8. Extruded aluminum cover for bumper storage
9. stainless cable/satellite inlet
10. Convert from island queen to twin beds

I'd like a "Skippy" that maintains my trailer as I savor my Gentlemen Jack.

Thats the winner.

But they should be near airports with direct flights to Boston Logan.
