They are kind of the anti-dealership in many ways.

Don't pressure you for any upcharges, extended warranties, etc. I had to ask him about 6 different times if he needed my deposit yet, during the ordering process, because I felt guilty I hadn't sent it.

During PDI, until you say the coach is the way it should be, he doesn't expect you to sign the papers. Whether that's two hours, or two or three days. Again, I walked into Doug's office and said, "looks like I have about three hours to kill while they are installing my Cell booster, now a good time to sign the paperwork?" That was on the second day in my case, but that was my choice, he wouldn't expect me to sign until everything is fixed to my satisfaction and he puts you up in their campground during the PDI so you can try everything out.

They have zero extra charged. Don't charge for PDI, no doc fees, nothing. They of course are charging me for installing my cell booster and a couple things like that, but with the coach, it was MSRP minus our agreed discount % and that's it.

All the great things about Coachlight I've read on here I've experienced starting with my first visit in December I think it was, and all through the sales and PDI process.

I bet that's going to be sharp. The wife and I considered doing some custom colors but were just not confident about what combos would look good together, but I think you picked a winner there.

Congrats Tnedator and hope to be in your shoes soon. Watching the build at the factory was tremendous, however, after the 6th time watching the Newmar video I was kind of glad we had to leave..
Congrats again and enjoy!

The USB drive I got from Spartan is blank (has a folder structure but no files/manual included) and there is no cummins manual in my binder with all the manuals.

Do they normally include a separate Cummins manual, or would that be part of the Spartan info?

Same situation here. I received nothing. Zip from Allison either. My dealer is chasing it down.

Looking at some pictures online, I think my recliner is the same size as the double recliners.

No problem. It's also a Flexsteel, FWIW. Feels much heavier to me than say a Lazy Boy recliner. Wife loves it. Says it's super comfortable. Just occurred to me that I never sat in it over the weekend.

For those that have done fpu recently, what communication did you have prior to your arrival? Did you get an email or phone call from your service tech assigned? Did you get any pictures or status updates? It's been almost 6 years since I did mine, I am just curious what to expect.

I did receive my email from Phil, along with another asking for jacket sizes for me and the wife. My FPU is scheduled for October 1.

Thx
