Awesome!! Congrats!! 🎉🎈🍻

We're staying pretty local our first couple of times out. We live in the northern 'burbs of Detroit...there are several KOA's within an hour or so.

Already starting to get nervous...not sure if I'll remember all the details the dealership told us. I may be sending you questions... Lol. 😜

Congrats! Nothing like the day you pick up your new coach... Bought mine in January, picking it up Thursday. Best of luck!

Great looking but I would be a little concerned about the wheelbase. How does it handle the Apex?

First time towing anything, so I have nothing to compare it to. It doesn't pull it as effortlessly as I had imagined it would. But not sure how realistic my expectation was....

Congrats! So far things are good. I do have a taillight out...replacing the bulb didn't fix it, so I need to have that looked at. Otherwise very happy with it. Taking it out on our second trip this weekend!

Watch your slam latch doors. I had to adjust the catch on one of mine. Of course that can happen to any model with these on it. The lock cylinders are a bit tougher than I'd prefer. Guess that's something some graphite can take care of. Also, my gas detector broke free from the wall at the top screw. Slipped back into place and held so I could get the slide back in, but I will need a long term solution like some caulking or glue if that screw won't catch anymore.
