New Toyhauler

I am about to order a new TH; I have it narrowed down to 2 coaches from 2 different manufacturers. I already answered the floorpan question, and since they are basically all the same components in slightly different configurations, I am left with the trivial..

My question is, what quirks have you uncovered since purchasing? Maybe not enough to regret your purchase, but out of place enough you will consider next time.

Thanks.

My daughter and husband just bought one. In the process one of the dealers mentioned he quit ordering trailers in with on demand water heaters. They had lots of problems with them.

The thing I noticed about all of them was they only had one air conditioner. You don't mention where you live but here in central California 105 degrees is common, especially if you go to the desert to play.

One air conditioner isn't going to cut it.

How big is your pickup?

Exactly the kind of thoughts and observations I'm looking for...

3 A/Cs is already on the list of must haves!

As far as the truck, 3500 dually is already on order.

2acs will typically get it done, even in CA... You just don't want a 30' RV with one AC.

Many manufacturers don't bother to balance tires. This helps stuff fall apart. And most manufacturers tires are junk, so factor in replacement cost.

Check on the reality of the "nationwide" warranty with your manufacturer. Just call a dealer one state over. If they start with "did you buy it here" - you're going to be stuck with your local dealer.

Wet bolts should be standard. They're not.
