Good luck to you... I don't have experience that model but be sure you really look it over good when you pick it up... you will find problems with any new unit!

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

30rls

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.
Enjoy!

New 30rls

Great to hear your 5vr it's coming soon. it will be nice to get away , I plan to retire in June then hope to get more use out of mine, So far so good, everything seems to work OK. One thing I did, was install a coax connection box outside close to the AC outlet, TV mount bracket is there but had no coax connection. I installed it in the lower skirt panel close to the storage door and ran the coax behind the service panel inside. Found an existing coax line that ran up to the living room ( provision for satellite ). Instsalled a short jumper to the booster in living room. Cranked up the antenna ,Works great, clean install.
Furrion FTVINB-BS Black Square RV TV Inlet Miniature I purchased it on Amazon.
We anyway good luck on your new unit Enjoy!
