I've been in touch with Lew and with AM Solar, so, yes, there will be solar. Which also means two group 27 Lifeline AGM's. I'm thinking 4 solar panels, though they have a newer model (right now it's back-ordered)....expect they'll arrive LONG before my trailer shows up. Changing out the inverter (want 2000W) , upgraded converter with 4 stage charging, Dill TPMS, a Bogart Trimetric, Drainmaster sewage system, Barker Auto-drains, Voyager wireless camera, Sirius FM, WiFi Ranger, Jack TV Antenna, Wilson Cell booster. I'll add the Maxim skylights as well. Pretty much everything I had on SilverLeaf I will be on SilverLeaf II --- though I am adding Sirius. The Classic uses the Polk Marine head unit with a remote in the BR. Very easy upgrade to sat. radio. I would really like to add a Winegard Travl'r sat antenna on the roof, but I don't think there's going to be 44 inches of space to do it. We'll see. Shower door on the Classic doesn't suffer from the same hinge issue as the Intl. Oh, the couple who bought SilverLeaf really appreciated all the upgrades, particularly the recliners and the add-ons. Will also be buying a new ProPride as I sold the hitch with the trailer. I have most of this stuff waiting for the trailer. Hope you two have fun in Tampa and do a deal! Watch out with all that torque!!! Barry

I think one of the reasons I ordered a new trailer is so I can do all the stuff I did to the '12. And since I won't be doing stuff piecemeal, I can be a lot more efficient when it comes to wiring, running cable, etc. The first time experience gave me a lot of insights and ways of being more efficient in the mod process. Of course, it'll be an experience doing it in a new trailer where systems are in different places!

I installed the Barker Auto-Drains in my 28' Intl. It's an electric motor that opens and closes both the 3" black tank with another motor that opens and closes the 1 1/2" gray tank. I installed the switches inside the trailer....so in the morning of a departure I would simply press a switch, drain the gray tank....and after a few minutes press another switch to drain the black tank. Nice not to have to go outside. System worked perfectly....oh, when you have the valve open, there's a flashing red light on the switch box to remind you that it's open. I think each valve runs around $125 or so.

After the Colonial video I realized I haven't been in a new A/S in a very long time. Impressive. This is worlds away from the 1970's. My 1990 model S/S has the same lack of storage. An interior more for eye appeal than four season travel (one does need some winter and rain gear). Don't take this as negative criticism. I think to the way my parents and grandparents trailers were laid out and the increase in storage is today taken by a dinette mainly. Still . . .

I sure like the ducted air. But not at all the weight.

Another cheapening of the unit and a simple ding will show a light colored wood under the stain. Dents in the Hickory were not apparent.

If one takes their trailer back to Jackson Center with a bottomless money supply in their checking account, the factory service center can do anything to your trailer.
I would like to assure you that the cabinets in the 2015 Classic are a solid cherry cabinet with a custom stain and glaze. This is a beautiful finish on the door. It is not alder or "some other light colored wood under a stain". Dents are noticeable on the cherry doors because they are stained. You did not notice the dents on the hickory because there was no stain just several coats of lacquer on it.

I just wanted to set the record straight about the cherry cabinets in the 2015 Classic.

Thank you CabGirl. I always thought the previous Classic Cabinets were Pine with a Hickory stain...
