Well, after months of shopping, a failed sale and a canceled order, we bought a new Dolphin. We were undecided between a Southwind and a Dolphin. We felt the Dolphin was built better but the Southwind had more options on it. After a tour of both factories, we ordered a Southwind on a Ford with 22 1/2" wheels. After a couple of days we were told that the Southwind could not have 22 1/2" wheels on in because the wheelwells were not big enough. The dealer upgraded us to a 2007 on a Workhorse at no cost. Last week we got a call from the dealer who said that the 2007 Southwind was in. My wife went to check it out, it was a 2006 on a Ford but had the 22 1/2" wheels. They said they modified the coach (the factory said they don't modity). The coach had a driver door which we didn't want and is why we made a special order. We were then told the 2007 would not be in until at least July, after our vacation. Canceled the order. Went next door to Giant RV and purchased a Dolphin on the lot. We are very happy now. Trip coming up at the end of June.

Just a little follow up. The Dolphin is great. I have not found a single problem with the coach. Finish and fit is great. I am having 3M plastic put on my front, and a rock guard on the back at National RV in Perris. They have been great responding to questions I have had.
