    I'm interested in knowing what people think is the single most important thing inside of an RV that not all of them have.

    Not exactly sure what you mean, but I'll take a stab. Most important thing in our RV is the bathroom. I could deal without having most of the other comforts, but having a toilet available in the middle of night is so much better than having to get dressed, finding a flashlight and stumbling your way to the campground bathroom.

    Next most important would probably be the refrigerator.

    I 100% agree on the toilet. I see no sense in having a private place with hard walls to sleep in and stay cozy in, if my cozy comfy has to be abruptly disrupted by going out in the dark and cold just to pee. I can't get back to sleep if I get fully wakened that way. Even my cozy Kia Soul micro camper has a portable camp toilet and enough room to use it, so I don't understand why anything sold as an RV wouldn't have anything at all (popups and teardrops mainly).

    I can do without a fridge, but I do have a nice thermoelectric AC/DC tiny thing that will drop the temp as low as 64f below ambient temp (most this size only get to 34f below ambient). I can plug into car while driving, and plug into outlet at electric site or at home or work (when trying to keep my stash from getting stolen). It takes a long time to cool down when turned on, so the temp being as cold as 64 below ambient, just means things don't get too warm if I stop driving and turn off the car engine. It's the right size for a couple burgers and some cheese, butter, a drink,, other small items.

    I have to agree with Chris. The lou is very important.......so is the fridge, microwave, stove TV etc but my second most important asset is the shower. I like my shower. I know it's clean and I don't have to mess about packing my shampoo and stuff down the road and I don't like putting clean cloths on a dirty body to get there or putting dirty clothes on a clean body to come back. Using a campground shower is just too much work for me.

    Campground showers are definitely not the best. I like having campfires late into the night while enjoying the stars, which means taking a shower in the bath house in the middle of the night so I won't have to go to bed with spot on me, nor get my bedding smelling like a campfire. It's kind of creepy.

    Hahaha, I don't have a bathroom or shower in my RV, and am fine with that.

    In the RV I'm not so sure, and I don't know that there is anything in there that I can't live without. For me it is the sum of the whole, a safe, dry place to spend the night. A more comfortable bed than sleeping on the ground. It is also nice not having set up or break down a tent in the rain :D

    I have a 2012 [email protected], a larger teardrop trailer. They do offer a version with a wet bath, in fact they come standard with it now, but ours does not have one and I am fine with that.
