Picking up 2020 Back Country 28DBS

Hi All

My wife and I are getting a Back Country 28DBS - after a few months of researching and kicking the tires. We will do the "drive to Oregon" ritual to get it. We plan to stay nearby a few days to smoke out any issues then head out for a couple of weeks of adventuring with our kids.

Although we have asked no questions as of yet, many of the threads on here were very informative. I wanted to say thanks to the well crafted responses and knowledge provided by so many of you.

Right now the wife and I are urban professionals, but we miss being outdoors. Both of us were raised on farms, spent time in the Army, and worked in odd outdoor jobs like ranch hand, commercial fishing, and professional guiding - and did a lot of towing and roughing in very remote areas it in our younger days. We are looking forward to camping and travelling again after building our careers and starting a family.

Looking through the mod thread and studied the 2020 ORV models, its clear that ORV has taken a lot of your mods and made them standard features. This will be a big benefit for us. Thanks again.

Having said that, anything we should be careful about our first few weeks. Or any other advice?

Thanks Again

Welcome to the forum and to the ORV family, and congrats on your 28DBS! Good products, good people.

I can't think of better family time than camping, and exploring and enjoying the great outdoors with your kids.

Take the time to test EVERYTHING before you head for home (for example, our back flush valve was installed backwards and, if I recall correctly, we're not the only ones who had that problem), and don't hesitate to ask questions - of the dealer, the factory, the members of the forum.

Enjoy your first adventure, and best wishes for many, many more in the years ahead!

Yes check everything, our A/C ducts werenít cut out from the roof unit. Not a big deal, 30 min fix. Something I didnít even think about with 8 inches of snow on the ground.

I went out of province for mine, I worked a deal if something was wrong the dealer would put us up till it was right.

Congrats on the new rig, should be a good shake down trip.

Hey Texas RV
I am also getting a Backcountry 28DBS, we are picking it up in Pendleton, OR at Thompson RV. Our Salesman is Burt and Corrin they are great family people to work with. I have not seen the trailer in person but we went off of what we saw on Outdoors RV site. We are very excited about getting this trailer and hope we made the right choice. I have also not seen much about this trailer on the internet. We will be picking it up in March or April of 2021. Thanks for the interesting info. You and the wife and the family stay safe and healthy.

Hey everyone. I just joined the forum. I’m new to RVs (never owned one), and have been doing OCD research on them for about 2 years now.

I’m certain that an ORV 28DBS suits my family’s needs, even though the floorplan doesn’t meet our want-list 100% and it’s missing an outdoor kitchen (a feature we really want, having 4 young kids).

Have you taken delivery on your 28DBS yet, and if so, how has it been so far? Still happy with your choice?

Also, how was it dealing with Thompson RV? Would it be worth the drive from Denver?

Fun4Six I can't tell you how the trailer is but I can tell you that you will not find a better bunch of folks to deal with. I have not seen the trailer yet but what I have done is research and I found that this trailer is the bomb, straight out.
