No satellite + terrible campground wifi + terrible cellular service = total frustration! Working remotely requires a decent Internet connection. Otherwise, you end up fighting with connectivity, which really keeps you from being productive.

This page contains an updated list of the modifications we made to our Berkshire XLT. Before we even picked up our RV, we had the dealer install a remote control fan in the bathroom since my wife and kids could not reach the manual push button fan it came with. $600, and well worth it. … More Berkshire Mods
