When looking for a motorhome, many folks lower their expectations in comparison to when they are shopping for a traditional house. But did you know you can have many of the same features you look for in a house, in your new home-on-wheels?
We’ve put together a list of extravagances that are available in an RV that customers often find hard to believe. Enjoy!
1. Double-door refrigerators
It’s understandable that many RV-buyers expect that fridge space will be limited in a motorhome. But that isn’t necessarily the case! Many popular RV manufacturers like Jayco and Airsteam now have models with double-door refrigerators. Sizes can range from four cubic feet up to 23 cubic feet, which means plenty of storage. Oh, and did we mention that some units even come with an additional outdoor refrigerator? It’s true! Models like the Keystone Outback Toy Hauler Travel Trailer have mini-fridges that you can access from the exterior.
2. Outdoor speakers
Most RVers will agree that there is nothing better than sitting around a campfire, listening to music, and enjoying the company of friends and family. Well, with outdoor speakers, you can easily play all of your favorite tunes! No need to bring along Bluetooth speakers or a boom box. Simply plug in your device and let the listening begin! Check out models like the Coachmen Chapparal or the Crossroads Altitude for outdoor entertainment systems
3. Outdoor Kitchens
Sometimes you don’t want to be running in and out of your motorhome to make food. When the weather’s nice, there’s nothing better than an outdoor BBQ. But what if you could have the best of both worlds? All the amenities of a kitchen, with the warm summer breeze you get from being outside? Wonder no more. Many RV models now come with exterior kitchens, equipped with everything from outdoor sinks to cook tops and even countertop space for prepping! Models with outdoor kitchens include the 2017 Prime Time RV Avenger Travel Trailer and the 2017 Coachmen Freedom Express (and many more!).
This is one comfort we tend to expect in a conventional home but not in an RV. But on those nights when the weather isn’t cooperating, what could be more enjoyable that curling up in front of the fire in the comfort of your motorhome? It makes time playing board games with the family, or a romantic meal for two, all the more enjoyable. Check out the Thor Motor Coach Challenger or the Forest River Salem Hemisphere for a look at some beautiful fireplaces.
4. Back up and side cameras
Gone are the days of worrying about backing up your large vehicle – even if it’s a motorhome! A lot of units now come with HD color back up cameras and side cameras to help you navigate tricky parking. This isn’t a feature you have to splurge on a fifth-wheel to enjoy, either. Many travel trailers and Class C models offer back up cameras. Check out the Dutchmen Aerolite or the Jayco Greyhawk as just a couple of options for built-in cameras!
5. Porcelain toilets
Maybe it’s because we have grown accustomed to the feeling of porcelain under our derrieres, or maybe it’s just a preference, but there’s something luxurious about seeing a familiar porcelain throne when we go to the bathroom. In the past, this was a frill most RV units didn’t come with. But today, that has changed! Not only are porcelain toilets more common, but from some manufacturers they come part of the standard package!
6. Heated flooring
You probably think we’re pulling your leg at this point, but we’re telling the truth. Yes, heated floors in RVs are a real thing! Admittedly, they will cost you a bit extra, as they are typically part of a luxury or upgrade package. But if you intend to spend a great deal of time in your RV, they are an addition that won’t go unnoticed. No more need for thick socks and extra layers! Warmth underfoot is a gift that keeps on giving. Check out the 2017 American Eagle from American Coach or the 2017 Allegro from Tiffin Motorhomes for some truly lavish choices in this department.
