Congratulations on your new unit. I have a new 5er on order and are hoping for an uneventful pick-up. Enjoy

WE purchased the same year and model over a month ago , What sold me I was able to fit the fifth wheel under my existing carport and price was right with trade in. Dealer had a campground on site to check the unit over night when I purchased it. After that Only had a chance to go camping for 4 day weekend so far. Enjoyed it. For me it pulled very easy, I drive a F250. plenty of room for wife and I, will go for a week soon.
Happy with the storage. traded in a travel trailer. The fifth wheel pulls alot better, no sway ,First 5vr for me.
I like the fold up rack in the back, Look it over good on the walk thru.
check paperwork to make sure everything is in the package. Any problems, Coachmen will stand behind it. you have a year,
It may take a few trips to notice any minor issues if you have any.
Can't tell you much more, still need use it more myself.
