Very close to buying Avenger 30QBS

I am very close to buying. I am looking at putting at a campsite for a seasonal with 2 week long trips planned elsewhere.
I have been polling all the dealers on the quality and service issues, plus reading the forum. All dealers are consistently saying that the Prime Time Service and out-the-door product has dramatically cut their warranty issues by 50%.
I will have my slide out most of the time. Any issues with leaks by anyone? I have read the 'bottom slide wear' issue and will review when at the dealer again.
I am impressed with the quality construction, aluminum wrapped corners and interior drawer/storage space.
Is there something I should look at specifically while at the dealer? Tub area? Roof seals?
thanks

Beer storage space is most critical.

Find out how much beer the outside refer will hold and if that's cans or bottles.

This is where the square bottles would be handy.

You knuckleheads... already considered and bought new full size beer fridge for the shed. The small fridge is for the kids drinks- anything to keep them out of the trailer.

Anything to add about the trailer ??

Which dealer are you looking to buy from?

Have you checked around to ensure they are 'honest' in terms of their pricing?

There is no doubt in my mind that Prime Time offers fantastic customer service.

The Avenger line is their entry level and as long as the price point on your unit reflects it you'll do fine.

I have been online looking at all the dealers around. Going to the US to save... even with exchange, its a huge savings. I would love to support the Canadian dealers, but they are way over priced. I am in a border city and have bought my last 3 trailers state side... I have 4 dealers I have asked about price. Narrowing to 2 and will ask for my extras ... and if they say no, someone will be hungry enough to take it somewhere.
