Accessories you wish you have negotiated for

When you were about to sign on the dotted line, were there any items you forgot to negotiate into the deal? Looking for suggestions. We are looking at a 270BH.

So far we've thought of:
Slide topper
Upgraded hitch to Reese SL WDH
Black Maxx Air covers
Replace front vent with powered fan unit

We already own a rolling honey pot and all the hoses and cords we'll need.

Definitely a power tongue jack if it doesn't have one. With a WD hitch, there are a lot of ups and downs! Another little thing I like is my zipper-pack full of 12x12 leveling blocks, the ones that look like Legos. Spare tire cover?

Yeah, has that. Have a bunch of those blocks, 3 bags worth. I remembered 2 large X chocks and a screen door handle.

Hmmm. Good questions. I have the 270BH and other than some minor things we really like it. The Jensen stereo/speakers is complete junk. Mine is actually malfunctioning so I will need to have that looked at, but we plan on upgrading the system and speakers very soon.

Our AC front vents weren't blowing any air out of, but we missed that on the walk through because they had the air blowing I've cold and the other vents worked fine and are able to cool the camper down. The problem is no air to the front bedroom means we need to leave at least one of the doors open to keep cool air flowing. Also have them hit your awning with water while it's open, we have a small leak right above the entrance, probably would have been an easy fix before we left. Maybe try and get another vent fan in the front bedroom like what's in the bathroom and double check your shower curtain track, that is another weak spot in this camper. Open and close it several times to make sure it stays on the track. Try and get them to throw in a vent pillow for the bedroom and make sure you have enough drinking water hose, power cord extension and sewer hose extensions, you'll need them at one time or another.

While your at it, see if you can upgrade the grey tank capacity... 26 gallons fills up QUICK! Lol, good luck!

Three trips in and almost 950 miles on the TT, not much I regret not having. The short list:

- Max Air Covers
- TPMS

Here you go.....TST 507 Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)-Geno's Garage

I did not know they existed either until I recently had a tire problem. Ordered mine last week!
