We sign on a Sunseeker tomorrow!

We sign on a 3170ds tomorrow! We were looking at a used 2015, but went to the camper show over the weekend and found a new one for the same price as the used one. 4 days later, we're all set and take delivery tomorrow!

What do I need to know for our walk through? We plan on camping tomorrow night. I had a Roo, so I know the basics about appliances, etc. But what about the tanks, anything different, hot water heater?

Congratulations on your new purchase, go over everything during the inspection. If you have any questions ask before leaving the dealership. It may help to also video the instructional part of the inspection for areas you are not familiar with.

Hockeytownmom, we are expecting our new Forest River 2650 to come in the middle of next month and I asked the same question.
Here is the link - Pre-Delivery Inspections.
I got a lot of good advice including a link to a PDI check list that I have been modifying for myself to use next month. Good luck to you and safe travels.

We aren't getting the motor home today, apparently they weren't able to prep it for delivery today. So next week. We were hoping to go camping this weekend. :-/
