We picked it up today. A few manufacture defects, but nothing that can't be resolved with ease. I'm going to mention all of this; because I think it justifies the difference between buying it from your local dealer, and making a trip to get it from a wholesale dealer. I would not want to drive 150 miles to return the unit for service/inspection. I'm pretty sure any local dealer may not be as accomodating to my schedule, as a customer of another dealer.
-- I noticed something sharp in the rear slide carpet. When I lifted it up; there were staples all through it, going nowhere. So we pulled them out so our kids wouldn't accidentally step on them. Something tells me at one time in construction, this piece of carpet was secured to something.
-- 1 window side skirt/cornis, left side of dinette window, is separating. It appears that when you try to pull the day shade down, it doens't pull down past the window wheel crank, and if you try to, you overflex the side skirt.
-- 1 bedroom sliding door is not plumb/level, it appears one of the top slide casters is not properly fastened to the door.
-- 1 kitchen drawer is not square, and therefore does not shut flush, and stay shut in the clip/clasp.
-- hide-a-bed does not fold out flat, appears that the standoffs just need adjusted; but I'm surprised they aren't already set properly.
All in all we're very happy with the quality; and pleased with the finish. Cannot wait to get it out!
BTW: the truck pulled it 'well' home from the dealer. About 14 miles. It was not unsteady, or overpowering the footing of the truck, with the Equalizer WD/Sway. It actually felt very small behind me; and I'm not concerned about the footing of the rig as a whole. We'll see how long trips with SEMI's and hills changes my mind. It was some work for the engine on the hills, but nothing unexpected.
