New Avenger 28BHS

We ordered an Avenger 28BHS mid January and picked it up at General RV in Utah at the end of March. We've spent 9 nights in it and are very happy. Given past experiences with boats/cars/trailers, I expected to have a laundry list of warranty issues by now, but I really don't. The only things I've run into have been very minor and not worth mentioning.

There are some things I'll change, but the trailer has exceeded my expectations in both design and construction particularly when taking into consideration the price point. It's a significant upgrade over our last trailer in almost every way and has tons more storage room even though the layout is similar and it's a +/- 1' shorter...the design is simply more space efficient.

One thing I haven't figured out: after towing, we have quite a bit of relatively small dust/debris in the trailer--on the floors, bunks, etc. I've cleaned off the top of the slide, so that's not the source...and we cleaned the interior after it was delivered ( was delivered clean, so it was really just a wipe down). Where is it coming from? Perhaps the heater or a/c ducts?

I just wanted to share that we're happy campers...and see if anyone can tell me how to stop the dust/debris field every time we pull.

congrats on the new unit !
I dont have any advice on the "dust" but if I had to guess you might be on the right track with the heating ducts .

You're probably going to see a fair amount of construction sawdust and stuff for a while. It'll will migrate out from all sorts of hiding spots.

When you get some time, I'd take a shop-vac and pop off any access panels and vacuum out everything you can find.

I still have a little bit of factory dust in my trailer and I had it some 18 months. It almost all gone but I think the remaining factory dust is under the entry door threshold.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
