We are in our new 19BH camping in the driveway… kids are loving it.  I picked up on Thursday and got upgraded matresses, rounded door, upgraded floor and auto-furance ignition (no lighting the pilot outside)… apparently I got some of the 2012 upgrades.  Remote air conditioner (which I did not know was included).  We have the full cable hook up outside/inside too.  Got a radio installed and it has SD and USB as well.  Don't know where to start with my mods yet, but we are enjoying driveway camping big time.

Sorry this is a week late, but I have a few questions for you, if you don't mind-still contemplating purchasing one of these units and comparing to other brands…

First, what do you mean by remote air conditioner?  Is this a roof mount with a wall thermostat?

Secondly, as for the "upgraded mattresses," was this a factory supplied item, or a dealer installed?

Third, the radio install sounds like a dealer installed option, correct?

Sorry, just trying to make an informed decision here.  Have found a wealth of info here!

Looks like the driveway may be our only option for the near future. We are somewhat landlocked — mighty Mississippi to the east and all the smaller rivers (Current, Black, White, St Francis) to the north, south & west. Most of the levees are seeping water from the bottoms & lots of roads are closed. Maybe by Memorial Day – fingers are crossed.

Sorry, after 2 weekends in the driveway, we went away last weekend for our first official trip.   Wheatley, Ontairo-  Campers Cove.  Its funny… all our friends have these big huge 28+ units, but still only 2 adults and 2 kids like us.  The 19BH has tons of room, half the price and I can park it in my driveway next to my boat.

To answer your questions… the air conditioner is a 'window' mount 8000BTU, not roof mount.  It has a remote control for fan and air.  We had the furnace on and then I turned the fan from the air conditioner on from my bed.

The matress was upgraded from standard to a more 'plush' material.

The radio was a $100 upgrade, not a top end model, but very loud and good speaker locations in the roof… one right inside the door.  Now I do not have to get outside speaker.

Any more questions?
