What is your dream RV accessory, product, gadget or gizmo? What have you caught yourself saying, "I wish they made a _______________, it would make life SO much easier when I'm in a park or on the road". Just curious.

You know, my biggest grip with RV's in making the bed. Thank goodness we don't have one of thoes corner beds cause I have no clue how you make it but even though ours is in the center, its hard to get around and make it up. (Obviously we don't have a slide)

The travasacks that CW used to carry made this a chore no more. Thnak goodness I got one before they stopped making them. If you can find something similar on the net, i strongly encourage getting one. It is a comforter that has top and bottom sheets that all zip together, so basically it is like a really fancy sleeping bag. Looks great and all you do in the morning is smooth it out. No bed to make. It has a winter and summer side, you just flip it over and use the thicker comforter when cooler, and the thinner one when it is warmer.

I have no idea why these are so hard to find anymore.

A full time driver so that I could enjoy the journey. Miss seeing lots of things when having to keep my eyes on the road while driving.

My wife took two quilts(king size for a queen bed) and sewed them at the foot and 1/2 way up each side. The quilts were made from similar material that is used for the inside of sleeping bags. So they kept us warm in the winter with a comforter on top and cool in the summer with no comforter. That was her way of beating the cost of the travasaks.

It was easy to make the bed.

An automatic device to tilt the refer in any direction to keep it level no matter what slope the trailer might be parked on.

Practical 12V A/C, say 13000 Btu's, that would run for maybe 18 hours off 2 group 27's.

I think the most important feature they can make and they do already, is the electric tongue jack.

Electric power broadcaster so you can receive 120 volt AC power while driving down the road WITHOUT that pesky long long extension cord. Of course when they DO finally invent this RVs will likely be one of the LAST uses for it.
