Looks like a very good package. The only issue I personally would have with it is looks like the one recliner needs to be moved for the slide to come in but that's pretty standard with the rear recliner floor plan.

It does have to be moved. It comes shipped stacked on top of the one closest to the door and they get strapped down the same way the dining room table and chairs do. I have to do the same thing with my Yukon i have now that I traded to get this one.

We really like ours. As for inside livability, it is a big upgrade from the Arctic Fox we traded for it. Love the auto leveling. It maneuvers easily to back into tight areas and we park at home. We are disappointed with the location of some of the outlets and think there needs to be a better method of storage and handling of the shore power cord. Very heavy and clumsy to move around. No easy access to get to things that may need repair and/or maintenence, if you are into DYI. The insulation is not near as good as the AF. Don't get me wrong. There are more pluses than minuses.

DW and I are happy with ours we bought this time a year ago. We had some minor warranty repairs done at the end of the season. 1. The dinette next to the couch came loose from the slider floor, I could have repaired it myself but we waited and let them do it. 2. The latch on the outside door was hard for my wife to operate and then fixed that at the dealer. 3. The material covering the underside of the floor by the door is a cheap foil type material and it came loose/turn. They again fixed it, but I will cover this area with a piece of FRP before we camp in it this summer. Overall we are very happy with the unit and the features. I wasn't really crazy about the fireplce/heater when we bought it but now after one season I don't think I would buy one with out it. When plugged into shore power it warms up the place on cool mornings with out having to use propane.

Definitely love the fireplace. That thing will run you out of there. Works really well, and its free for you if your on park electric.

Unfortunately we are more boon-dockers then park folk. When I first found it came with the Tour Edition I thought great. Then I found out it was electric only. Thought it went both ways, gas and electric.

I have a question about the cable/satellite connections in my camper. I have a coaxial connecter at each TV. I have one in the docking station labeled cable and one labeled satellite. My last one is in the through storage open area for an out side TV. Are all of these connected to each other. What is difference from the cable and satellite connections in the docking station and do they both go to both TV connection inside.

They are different. On your docking station you should have a sat connection and a cable. Whatever you are using is also what needs to be hooked up at tv too!

Not sure I understand. You have a cable and satellite connection in the docking station. I also forgot about the antenna on the roof. So all 3 let's call them supplies (cable satellite and antenna) feeds are different? Do the all connect to the outlets next to each tv?
