Make sure it is 100% the way you want it before you sign and hand over the money. DO NOT take delivery until everything is 100%. Don't take promise that they will take care of any little problems when you bring it back for warranty repairs. Right now you are holding the upper hand as long as you hold the cash...which they want. Once you leave and they have the cash, you will have to deal with the service department and they do not want to do warranty repairs.

Enjoy the new rig.

Welcome SarahW to the forums and you've already been greeted by a great bunch of new friends! I live in Cypress....so we're in the neighborhood!

a piece of REALLY good advice

After the first rig we bought, I learned (when buying the next two) to take the time to just spend a hour or so in it. It makes them mad, but I literally send the salesman away for a while I can spend some uninterrupted time to view the unit.

All too often we are overwhelmed with the initial decor, gizmos and gadgets that they all come with...........only to find out later that essentials were overlooked.

It may seem "stupid", but I'll sit in the chair and take a look around...is that chair comfortable? is it going to strain my neck watching tv from its location? how heavy is it to move when I clean? I even pull out the couch to check how comfortable the mattress really is!

I'll stand in the kitchen area and pretend to wash dishes or cook. Is everything going to be handy when I need it? Where am I going to put my pots and pans? Where does the coffee pot plug in?

And I know this sounds really goofy, but I head to the bathroom and actually sit on the toilet! Is it a comfortablel height? Can I reach an extra roll of paper without getting up!!!! Do I feel clostrophobic? I even step into the shower!!!! I check the storage in that area....where am I going to put the towels, extra soap and above all....the toilet paper!!!!

In the bedroom, I literally lay down on the bed and stay there for 15 minutes. Is the mattress comfortable? Are my feet hanging off the end? Can I turn over without bumping my head? I open every closet and every drawer to assess how much storage is available in the bedroom.

The outside? Well that's a different story....I leave that to hubby!


PS: The salesman always comes back!
