Most of these new rigs do not have any power to them at all so testing out electronics, AC, how it rides, find out after you buy it. I have had some sales people tell some rather foolish comments that exposed their lack of knowledge. Sometimes they were not even aware of certain aspects that were published in the manufactures web site.
Lots of reasons new rigs are back up for sale. RV'ing wasn't their lifestyle, health or family problems right after the purchase, and a very common one, it wasn't as much fun after the 3rd payment was due.
The last person you want to gain information from when making your decision is the salesperson. It is going to be your money so gather as much education about the product as you can before making the purchase.
If you want first hand information, drive to an RV park in your area and find owners of a rig you are interested in. Ask them what they like and dislike about their unit. Unless theirs is for sale, you will get honest answers.
Once you are serious about a floor plan that is perfect for you, any dealer will get power to it and let you spend time in the unit to see if it is right for you. Do not be afraid to ask the salesperson if you and your wife may spend some alone time to make your decision. Most will gladly leave you alone if they think they are close to a sale. They will not let you spend the night in it and have it be a used coach before it leaves the lot.
There are hundreds of thousands of us that have been very please with all of our RV purchases. With the right amount of knowledge you can also be a very happy RV owner with the one you decide on.
