Well we are still waiting on our new home, but we have had a couple of set backs.

1. Graphics on back of trailer wasn't quit right and has to be moved forward 12" -18"; so the the back has to be sanded down to base coat and repainted.

2. We wanted a little different cabinet door and drawer pulls than NH offered so we supplied our own, which are "1-2" longer.
The guys in the shop being proactive went ahead and drilled all the cabinet doors and Drawer pulls the same size as the pulls in the NH show models; needless to say, all drawer fronts and Cabinet doors have to be reordered and replaced.

Cole is on top of it, Hopefully, we are hoping to pick it up in December.

Good news is we sold our S/B and 90% of the furniture to the same buyer. We are completely moved out and with a minimal amount in storage we couldn't part with yet, and we close in a few days.

So as my DW wife says we are officially homeless.

In NH defence they did offer to let us go ahead and pick it up and bring it back for the cabinets and paint, but we decided to wait until it's all finished.

Should be a good Christmas for you guys. Ours is currently at the paint stage. Things have been moving along pretty well. Ram 5500 from Classy Chassis will be done around the same time. Looks like we will be taking a winter trip up north to pick up all sometime around year end.
Good luck.

Good luck.

We picked up our RAM 5500HD from Classy in February. Good thing we had 4-wheel drive. Needed it as the snow even on the interstates got pretty bad. Bad enough to stop early for the night. But have used 4-wheel drive more in CG's then solo driving.

Love the Classy Chassis hauler bed build on the Ram 5500HD. Our second Classy truck. The Ram, after 30,000 miles, still pleases us. Great ride. There is just no "drama" with this truck pulling our NH going up or down hill. Total control over the trailer. Pulling the trailer is easy. Proper control and weight carrying is another thing and the Ram has done well. Excellent choice.

We were "homeless" AKA at the Candlewood Suites in Manhattan for 9 weeks. To say it was challenging would be a understatement! We definitely had a few delays. We have been in our trailer for 2 weeks and 2 days. So far so good as we have had no major issues other then a flat tire after our first night of travel.

We had a crazy few days of delivery with things going on from morning to night. There was so much to learn and so much to do. I will tell you to make friends with Austin. He saved our butts with everything from hooking up the camera system in our truck to moving a couple of electrical outlets in the trailer. He is a wiz at hooking up electronics! We worked out a agreement to pay him after hours for anything that was not NH's responsibility.

We have been in Hot Springs AR getting settled and learning all things RV. We are going to be featured in a episode of Extreme RV next spring and had to spend a 12.5 hour day filming after barely getting here and learning the trailer. Trust me friends when I say that being on a reality type of TV show is not as fun as it sounds

We are off to Austin TX for the winter on Sunday. Very excited to get down to sunshine and 70's temp's!
