Talked to Nexus yesterday. They are sending a new bunk cushion. They had a few cut wrong in the past. I am surprised that QC didn't catch this before heading out...oh well there are worst QC out there heh.

That's good news. I'm looking forward to visiting the factory on April 8th and placing my order, probably the 24P, and am finalizing my adds, changes and mods.
Suggestions from this thread are very helpful, pointing out little things I would want (or not) that might not occur to me (like where to store the laundry!)

One thing we didn't think of is a drawer for utensils. No biggy, a storage box will be just as good that fits in the bottom cupboards.

And enjoy the slide out. We were surprised at how much room there is without one, once in awhile I may have to play hugs with the wife to get by her haha. But do not feel cramped at all. The extra room will no doubt give a a spacious feel.

Remember to take pics of the tour for folks like us who couldn't make it for one.

Cheers

Good idea, I've been trying for months to get them to run a Nexus Owners Group (which is this I guess) and will try to get them to make a video tour of the factory.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy your new rig soon. This is from your pro/con list--#3 on the con--We have the same problem with our basement doors lock. I decided to remove the key lock and replace them with regular handles. I also took the nonlocking handles off the curbside and put them on where the locks were on the street side so they would all look the same. I left the locks on the genny & battery doors--but that's all.
I bought 10 of the ones below and put them on the curb side. I read on another forum or thread to grease the guts with plumbers grease since it isn't affected by water. The ones I bought I think are corroding about as bad are new ones. The road salts are tough on any metal.

Amazon.com: Camco 44323 7/8" Thumb Operated Offset Cam Lock: Automotive
I bought these from the Sportsman Guide for $2.99 ea, no shipping charge for 10, but it took 2 weeks!

Good luck with your new rig,
Ron

Maybe I'll see your rig on the line

Looking forward to touring the factory next Tuesday and Wednesday and putting in my order on the 24P, so excited. Thanks to all on this thread for contributing to my long lists of options, mods and especially, problems to be avoided.

Spring finally arrived and got a chance to take the Nexus for a good drive. Quiet as a mouse! Nothing rattled nor creaked. We are very pleased.

Since this our first MH, the handling of this small 25' was easy. Just have to make sure you drive in the middle of the road. Definitely a different perception compared to a regular vehicle.

Our 1991 LaZy DaZe ran dead silent down the road when we first bought it last year. Then my wife started filling it up with pots and pans and gadgets and blow dryers and now it rattles and buzzes like crazy!

I guess I gotta go throught the cupboards and organize all that stuff?

A: Nice RV, you should be very happy with that. You should send the local dealer a thank you for not making that first deal.
B: Nice to hear the mfgr go out of there way for a client.
C: Hopefully an indication of how they will handle any future issues (and we all have some issue of one type or another during ownership, it's just a fact of life)

Just returned home from the factory and what a wonderful and worthwhile time spent! I can't recommend highly enough, visiting the factory and Karen or whoever you're working with prior to ordering. Karen and I spent two days viewing completed units on the showroom, touring the factory (I'll post pics when/if I figure out how) and deciding on mods and options on every square inch of the 24P. What a great opportunity to design your own rv. Its essentially building a very small home and the same kinds of decisions are involved. I had sent 4 pages of potential mods/options to Karen ahead of time so she was able to run them by Dave before I arrived. This woman Karen, by the way, is amazing and I am highly recommending working with her. I could go on and on about how much and how often she went out of her way for me.
I'll post a separate Topic and say more but I can tell you that with all the tweaks I wanted to add/change, the unit still came in at budget and still less cost, with better quality and hand-picked details, than anything else I'd spent 3 years looking at. Thanks Capt. Steve for turning me on to this company.
