I have a 386*12. Love it. She has have a few kinks to work out but worth it. We are weekend warriors. But camp alot. Put a 3 ac unit on the garage with a heat strip and works great. When we bought the camper got them to throw in two more cabinet doors for the "tv" space in the garage and turned it into storage!!! Good luck and Happy Camping

Thanks everyone! We've been quiet for a while, but we are still looking for something. The RV shows we attended at Columbia and Greenville were a total bust, but I talked about that more on my thread about it. :P A bit disheartening really, as we want to walk through a 415, which is what we are considering the strongest, and can't seem to find one to go through!! But anyway, we are still on the lookout for one that suits us.

Check out 007RV.com. they have some on their web site but more on the lot you might want to call to see what they have on the lot. When we went there the over 35 toy haulers on the lot. They are located right outside of Danville VA. If you do call or go ask for Zack Reeves AWESOME to deal with

We opted for the 35X12 vs the 386 AMP. the 386 floorplan will allow for a larger bedroom TV if that is a concern. 35X12 is limited to a 19"or so in the corner due to a pocket door in the ideal TV location. I installed a 19" TV DVD combo yesterday. seems to be OK. Not much to install. Glad I didn't pay FR's price.

I recently bought a 2015 XLR Thunderbolt 415Amp. So far I am satisfied.

We are getting ready to head out on our third trip with it. I'm picking it up at dealer after taking it back for a camera install and having some minor issues taken care of.

The local deal is a FR rep and had about 3 or 4 XLRs on the lot of different flavors. The 415Amp stood out in my opinion and worked for my needs.

Got our 415 back from the dealer today. The very first mod done was getting a rear camera. So far, so good.

Is it just me OR are the fuel tanks kind of difficult to fill on the 415Amp?

I looked at my tanks last evening and tried to look at why the supple tank will only fill very slow ( the Gen tank fills just fine ) I thought the vent hose was kinked or pinched because when filling the tank it would blow back like it was full. That was not the case, so with that I will be looking for more answers on this and if I find anything out I will post here.
