    Choosing an RV

    When selecting our RV, I looked for opposing slides in the living area, an open floorplan that allowed for two-way traffic (in the living area as well as bedroom/bathroom), a neutral color scheme so I could choose accent colors, windows on all sides, plenty of storage and a retractable TV. The Landmark Rushmore had everything we wanted! We love our RV and enjoy traveling for weeks at a time.

    We are in Melissa TX for the end of the year to visit family for the holidays. Where in Texas do you hail from?

    John, it's the same Ann, but as many of the ladies who were at the Gillette rally know, I'm just the husband of Ann, who's famous for loom knitting and exercises for RV'ers.

    She's also well known outside the Heartland community.

    Thought it might be. Doing well after the medical emergency you posted some time back, I hope.

    Much better. Last August was pretty scary.

    Re: Choosing an RV

    I agree about the color scheme. I've seen some posters complain about the boring neutrals, but it's so much easier to start with the neutrals and add some accents. I saw some TTs with very stark black/red/gray graphic color schemes inside - not a relaxing look! Plus I have to say having 2 dogs the neutral colors hide the dog hair pretty well. Happy Camping!

    Re: Choosing an RV

    I hear that with hidding the dog hairs. The dark colors do get boring but you can put some nice bright spring colors in, and in the winter still use fall and winter colors. We took our couch out and added two recliners which really helped with all the design. solid is so much better not to mention the comfort.

    Hi Maryann4,

    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum. There's a lot of great information here along with a bunch of friendly people. Thanks for sharing.

    Re: Choosing an RV

    Really love the brighter colors in the kitchen of our 3500RL and wrought iron work, there has been plenty of things from the house that match spot on in the 5er. The one thing is where they put the recliners and couch, its backwards from where the TV/entertainment center is! The couch was a bit small even for me so I found a chaise at Macy's clearance center...it doesn't have the storage but the ottoman from the house does and it all matches nicely plus its lighter weight. I also picked up some couch and chair throw on lightweight covers to change the look during the seasons and will be adding window coverings soon when I find the right colors and pattern. The current ones aren't bad but they don't full close over the windows which would have been a nicer option though it does make it easier to 'customize' what we have in our unit. Maybe the funny part is we upgraded the interior of our house in 2007 using almost the exact same fixtures in the unit, made moving things from the house into it a lot easier in size and colors.

    The big thing for me was the floor plan - I prefer to have a larger wardrobe and separate washer/dryer closet and not have the bathroom in the bedroom! We also use our computers a lot so having a functional work space was more important than a larger flat screen as we rarely watch TV as it is. That was important to stay in budget with quality - I don't want to have to give up one for the other or get so buried we don't have funds to take off when we want. I wonder why the floor plan we have hasn't been a big seller if that is the case as HeartLand has only done a limited production of what we wanted and purchased?
    The only thing I miss going from an RV to a towable is the basement space. Eventually we'll figure that out but it seems more could have been put in the back without compromising living space...just my 2˘
