183g sighting

I finally saw a video on YouTube. Bad quality but still good to finally eyeball it. I definitely would have purchased one had it been available in March.

Hopefully this model is successful as I would possibly be interested down the road.

It's a great model, in person it's pretty fabulous.

Lol I hope that wasn't my video of it that was so bad.

Ahhh...now those videos were much better!

Very curious that they removed the garage controls. I know my roo radio has a nice app that works well, not sure if the Jensen is similar but I would much rather have hard controls. I sort of hoped for some new ideas in the garage, not the removal of features.

The inside looks really great.

I love the inside, it's the 181g with a full bath pretty much.

Was a bit disappointed to see the stereo controls taken out as well. We use ours a lot but I figure it's the new Jensen model, possibly doesn't have the same aux inputs in the back.

I had honestly almost would have bet this garage model would have had new garage stuff in it. Something more along the lines of what Forest River knew I was doing to mine. Granted not as nice but I had though it would head in this direction.

That is awesome...nice work! I would have been fine if they left most things the same back there but maybe remove the ice/compartment areas and offer some sort of electric cooler/mini fridge option. That whole huge counter left of the sink just seems wasted to me and the flimsy coverings are too light weight to use as a countertop.

You did a great job of making use of some seriously wasted space. I would still like the tv back there and I do like the extremely large sink.

New owner

Just got my 183. I have already started to modify it. I use the RF brake controller with an Execuhitch. Added a platform on the tongue for a future generator. Had the dealer install a battery cutoff switch and a sewer pipe holder on the side. This thing is going to be fun..

I do believe you might be our first 183g owner. I've yet to see anyone else anywhere else mention anything besides looking at them in their local dealers!

Congratulations!!!

Maybe we'll see you at a Rally someday.
