Beautiful inside and out. Too bad you have to wait to really get to use it. It will be worth the wait.

What a joy! It was wonderful pushing a button and having jacks level the camper in less than 5 minutes - saved hubby a lot of work!! Another nice accessory we bought was the winguard auto satellite dish - sit it down, plug it in and in no time the tv is working!! saved hubby so much stress and time - best timesaver ever!!! We did have one uh-oh during our 3 weekends - the front air conditioner didn't work. The back one worked fine - even tried the heater in it - but the front ac was blowing warm air. Luckily our camping wasn't during the heat wave we had here in NY - that happened in July! Our camper is actually at a service shop waiting for the ac to be fixed - under warranty - so we'll get it next week (hopefully). Our next trip is in August - going to Virginia to visit a cousin and his wife. Will be staying in Staunton/Walnut Hills KOA. Can't wait for a whole week to be in our camper - weekends are nice but a whole week is nicer!!

Happy to hear that you had a great experience and avoided the heat wave. Wishing you the best on the upcoming trip and hopefully the AC will be fully functional.

front ac is done and working fine!! we added the hardwired "surge protector" while the ac was being fixed. don't want to chance any problems with campground electricity issues. were looking into this before the issue with the front ac - this just made it easy to decide. the problem with the ac was the manufacturer had cut/crimped the copper wire when installing the ac. glad we found out - warranty covered the new front ac. as far as full timing - not our idea. we love our home/roots. we do plan on extensive camping across country once retired. have seen 33 states so far - have 16 more to see on our "bucket list". not planning on going to Hawaii but you never know! that won't be with the rv however!!

Watch your tires. You have the same wheels as I, but Keystone put cheap chienes tires on and 3 of them seperated in a week of each other after about 1000 of our miles. I'm persistant with the tire pressures too after going through the same kind of issues on my different boats.

So I oppted to buy all new high pressure wheels that look the same as original so I could run my favorite tire the Goodyear G614. I've had them on my 19,000lb boat now for 5 years and it looks like I might get another 2.

Just a word of caution. enjoy.
