425 AMP purchase, Done!

After months of research, and looking at pretty much every make and model, we found our new Thunderbolt, just a few hrs from our house. Thanks to member "play harder", who actually saw the unit on a lot, in eastern Washington, it saved me a long drive. We pick it up, Thursday, and look forward to getting this behemoth home!

Great forum, and I appreciate all the info from y'all. I'm sure everyone's seen an XLR, so I won't bore u with pics. But I will shoot a couple of it before we pull away from the lot, and venture on the 4 hr journey home.

They're installing a 20.5k hitch, and airbags on my truck, when we get there. Trailer, hitch, and bags, $65,700 (plus tax)

Great deal - when sticker was $98,500 good job-they told me they where very motivated to move the 4 units that had - - someday my little 1/2 ton truck will grow into a dually too and then I'll be stepping up to a 5ver too 😜

Really like the layout w seating and view on door side

Thanks for the heads up on this dealership. The closest 425 I could find, was in Sacramento. Wife was loving the 415, until she saw the lay out of the 425. Having the bigger loft, easy oven access, and the desk by the tv, was the clincher. XLR's have their poop together, when it comes to design and storage. Throw in the better price point, and it's really a no brainer.

Very nice. What dealer did you pick it up from. Just curious we purchased ours in Eastern Washington at Canopy Country RV. Very nice dealership and good service before and after the sale.

Bingo! Same dealer. Pick it up tomorrow, and so far they've been really nice people.
