Sorry man.. I should have been there for you...

I skipped the ordering process. I picked my dealer and the 370, but wasn't in a hurry to pull the trigger. Then I was at a local show and my salesman clued me into a loaded 370XL (missing only the drivers door, 6 disc CD changer, defroster fans and the king bed) that they sold new 3 months prior to a local surgeon. Guy returned it to upgrade to a diesel pusher.

So I never had to agonize over the ordering process...

Regarding dealer forgiveness, I'm all for that. There are WAY to many options and mid model year changes for them to keep up with everything. The key is that YOU know exactly what your getting and you verify everything. It's the nature of the industry as each manufacture tries to outdo each other.

Get a detailed spec sheet/bill of sale when you take delivery and check EVERYTHING.

Talking Thanks!

Many thanks for the replies!!
I think i'll go for the 15.000 cuz i can't stand the heat while trying to sleep.
I like my bed in a way that if i get in it should feel like jumping into the spring temperature swimmingpool...
Not so much the male shrinkage but more the WHOA feeling from that initial jump in the cold water.
I was also planning to extend the breakerbox with some more breakers and hopefully find alot of campinggrounds with 50 amps supply.
Also gotta look into those voltage boosters!
Again, thanks all for the input!

John

A few things you can do to help with the heat load....Install insulated curtains to your windows to help block out the sun and set your fan to ON so that the air in the camper is all ways moving, this helps eliminate hot spots in your camper. As far as night cooling, you will find that once the sun go's down the heat load will be reduced and the a/c will be able to keep up with demand. As everyone has said, go with the 15,000 BTU, I did. Some campers leak air more then others.

Went to the dealer this week...checked off a few details and upgraded to a 15K A/C unit.
Also found a real nice spot to put in one of those electric fireplaces...Very cool looking things and my dealer is going to give me some matching trim for it.
As for the voltagebooster..thanks Tulsasteve for the addy.
Shouldn't have to wait much longer now!
Financing is arranged and now i have to find a day to drive from IA to IL to sign the final paperwork...can't be done by fax or anything else, geeezzz.
6 hour drive for a signature...
I guess i want that trailer really bad!
Perhaps next week or so!
Will keep you guys posted...
Happy trails

John

John, they should be able to Fedex the paperwork to you overnight. We bought our rig from a dealer in New York and we live in Washington state. Never set foot in the dealer to sign any paperwork did it all via Fedex. Much easier than driving that far.

NWJeeper, i couldn't agree with you more, but the case is that i took on a mortgage on my house and that signing HAS to be done at the title company in my town i live in.
Not only will i spend alot of gas with my extremely 'economical' Excursion (V10) but also will miss a day of work at least, due to the title company strictly open for bizz on weekdays only...NO weekends!
Oh well..
I guess with a fixed rate of 4.3% i shouldn't complain too much.
Thanks for the thought anyways.
Who cares about 12 hrs of driving when you are about to have fun? hehehe

John
