i like the rig and lay out
to think about
1) can YOU stand up in a contempo??
(i like hard tops, i have one by choice)
I had one in my rig
My 95 pound Thai wife would have been cramped in there
I took it out
Now have rear ext shower, open both back doors, clip a large piece of black no see thru plastic up
top of door to ground, have shower mat, all good to go
I understand the concept of female privacy and needing a shower
but understand it does eat up space
consider where you will be camping and will showers be available?
also, traveling by yourself? if so a vote FOR self contained shower
if with friend(s), will really eat up space
also on that rig you can reclaim some space by ditching the TV cabinet
and getting a flat screen on a adjustable arm ( @ $250 all in for a 12v/110 unit )
what kind does it have meaning Size, location, total amp hours (total amp hours will let you know how long and what you can run on battery)
This is a '99, so the batts may be stock or older and due for replacement, not cheap
Have you physically walked into and sat in some rigs yet??
Ya might thing of posting here your "general" location and see if any boardies will let you meet up to see theirs, even if it is not your particular style choice, you will:
1) prob meet some nice folks
2) get a better feel on what you need
Yahoo groups also has a SMB site, done know how many folks post here and there
but agin might try sitting in and standing in a few rigs
A tad cheaper than getting on an airplane to see one////
