I was in too big of a hurry when we did our walk thru at pickup day. Plan to check everything....twice so you don't get home and say "dang it, I forgot to ask about that or didn't see that before we left". Me being a first time owner and jumping into a Thunderbolt XLR 380AMP .....may have had something to with it.....a lot😜

Yep, we actually slept over in our dealer's lot to put all systems through their paces before heading home with ours. Problem is, issues won't all show up during PDI and occur after some use. When you get it home and find an issue, don't race back to get it fixed. Use the rig for a while and when it's broken in, take it back and get your issues all resolved at once. It's not fun dragging a 44' rig to the dealer all the time so make it count.

We stayed in a campground 2 miles away. I recommend anyone buying one to to the same. Small items can be handled long distance but major things should be handled at the dealer if possible.

Thanks guys! No post hijackers here at all! We are all on this site for a reason. I love reading all the replies. I will get pics up as soon as I take delivery. Looks like it's coming off line on Feb 2nd and will go straight to paint which is usually a three week process.
I am so excited!

Maybe these will help pass the time. Here's the build process and the paint process...

Congrats on the new XLR Nguyenbio, you're gonna love it! I picked my 2016 up the day before Memorial Day weekend and have loved it ever since. It was quite intimidating the first few times out, but it's like second nature now. All of Karl4Cat's (Rodney) posts about his rig are the reason I ordered my 395. I would have liked to get the full body paint too, but I was already well over what I wanted to spend on "camping" already. Obligatory pic attached, lol:

So on the class A CDL if you go into Cali and you live and are licensed in another state you would need a class A from your state to drive through California ?

California honors whatever class of license your state of residence issues you to tow what you are towing legally.

IE: if your state does not require a special class license (non commercial class A) to tow a non commercial trailer over 15k, then California will honor that.
