Vanleigh Upgrades

We bought our 2019 Vilano 320GK on Aug 9th. Since then and 6000 miles of full timing I have added:
2 100ah Battleborn LiFe batteries from the get go,
EOH Disc Brakes from the get go,
Roadmaster Slipper Spring suspension w/shocks at 2200 miles,
Sailun S637 ST235/80R16 at 2200 miles.

What upgrades have you made?

Mike

The Roadmaster has some good reviews, and will be on my list for future upgrades. I also need something that lifts the rv so it will tow more level.

Double check with your dealer regarding the Solar/Inverter package. We ordered our 2020 39FBB with the Solar/Inverter package but Vanleigh had stopped installing those systems due to some complaints. My dealer never let me know and added their own prior to delivery. I found out during the PDI as they didn't include the 3000W inverter. We talked with Vanleigh and they stated they were switching to a Victron inverter and controller , but they didn't say when that was occurring. Maybe they're already switched and you'll get that option, but wanted to give you a heads up in case your dealer isn't forthright.

Solar

Yes, 1200 W solar system is, at present, a dealer installed option. I have specified the 3,000 W inverter on my order. Hoping to take delivery in mid-May.
