Bought ours last spring. Our 2nd camper. Really enjoyed it. Our old camper was an expandable and took so much work to set up and take down. The 27hfs much faster set up and I can bring my Harley with us....

We purchased one several months ago and took it to Bike Week in Florida for the maiden voyage. We really like it. There were a few kinks that needed to be worked out as in most new purchases but all in all, we love it!

One small thing water leaking into the floor when we took a shower. Just needed to add some caulk and problem solved.
Could not get hot water but have since found out that we had one of the valves turned the wrong way. So "user error".

Something not so small was the gas detector alarming in the middle of the night. We found a leak at the hot water heater connection in the outside compartment. Good to know that the detector was working! Tightened the connection and no problem since.

Right now we are working on getting the water pump to turn off by itself. Does not seem to want to prime.

We had a Windsport motor home that was in and out of the shop for months after we purchased it new, so these things seem minor to us.

We really love this Toyhauler and we are downsizing from a Journey Diesel pusher so it had some big shoes to fill!

With the water pump.... check to make sure that the inlet filter (on the pump itself) is tight.... I fought this for 3 days before I figured it out.

Yes we checked that. It seems tight. Still no luck though.

I just went out to check one more thing for the water pump and my husband had left the valve for the water in the "fill" position. Turned it to "use" and viola!!!! Water pump is working. Again "user error".

Thanks,
Kathy

Thansk Kathy , yea doesnt seem to bad , you would think they would check everything before sending them out to the lot and then the dealer would run a check to see if everything was working right before selling the unit . I guess this day in age the pride in workmanship is gone , I am glad my parents showed me different !!! What kind of price are you guys getting for these trailers out the door with tax and everything , if you dont mind me asking ???
