Have a 2015, 2016 are pretty much the same. Love it, we are on are first big trip this year. Going down to South Texas from Chicago area. At Crater of Diamonds SP in AR currently. Have pulled it about 6000 miles so far. Need to upgrade suspension bushings if you are planning on pulling it more than 5000 miles.

Yes, I only got about 3000 miles until the nylon byshings wore thru. I got adjustment help from Prime Time. I installed the Dexter Upgrade kit with bronze bushings. It works great.

I have a 2016 28rl...there is no connection for external propane...I bought an adapter tee that connects to one of my tanks and route a propane hose to barbecue so that I do not have to carry separate tank...
I have had issues with my unit...

-under cushions on couch...wears the underneath of cushions from brackets on bed
-black outside water door does not fit properly
-linoleum tore from slideout
-air movement in bedroom ...does not seem to provide enough air
-ceiling wallpaper not glued at some of the cross strips
-short black molding on driver's slide,,,was cut too short
-check out roof some delamination and bumps Thees bumps look like pieces of wood left and roof put on top
-opening in back of stove...a slot about 3" behind stove...looks like cut too wide or this may be used for heat circulation

Bottom line is check out everything you can before buying...above seem to be common problems not only with Prime time but also other manufacturers...
otherwise nice unit and tows nicely with my Ford f 250...6.2 litre motor

I'm a little confused , "ceiling wallpaper"? As far as I know, the ceiling panels are not papered so, the "unglued" issue may be related to your "delamination and bumps" on the roof. If they are in the same area, you could be having water intrusion which is causing the ceiling panels to delam at the edges under the ceiling strips.😞

not on ceiling but the 1 1/2" strips that run the length of ceiling...they are papered but separating at the ends,,,not big deal
