I was recently at a couple local RV shows and both me and the DW never seen anything that we like better than what we have now. Should have the 38 BH delivered and set up in the next week or so. Can't wait to get out and use it.

Well the TT went thru the shop for its PDI, everything looks good to go. The dealer delivers next week to my seasonal lot. I'm having the dealer install a multi positional TV mount in the master bedroom. Picked up a 22" 1080P TV for a decent price. The wall mount cost almost as much as the TV, tell me someone's not making a few dollars off them!

Were super excited and can't wait to get down there, pack it and get camping. I've got piles of camping stuff in my garage and basement waiting to go.

Update on the mattress. We bought a short queen from camping world $359. HUGE improvement over the junk foam one that came with the rv. We bought a mattress topper from CW before pulling the trigger on the new mattress. It helped a little. But the new mattress(359$) with mattress topper (160$). Great investment. Slept better than at home.

Ours was finally delivered and set up last week. Only a couple minor issues, one of the locks for the outside storage compartment needs to be changed, and the plastic handle on the gray tank needs changed. Apparently the grey (or black) handles for the waste valves just thread on. Ill pick up the parts from the dealer and fix it myself. Everything else went smooth.

Just got lumber dropped off at the house yesterday for a 24x8 deck for the camper. Building it in 2 sections so if I ever have to pull it out of there it won't be too hard. Yeah the mattress definitely sucks! We've got a decent 4" topper well try for now. It's a big relief getting it set up and ready to go after waiting months. Also thinking of pulling the bottom cabinet doors from under the TV in the main room and installing a fireplace insert. Probably wont get that in till next year though.


How's things going with yours?

My grandfather and I removed 4 screws and got it to where it was only 1/4" out of square and the top didnt fall through. Was pretty disappointed i had to "fix" a brand new rv. Im not a super picky guy and love the rv, but I hope there is nothing else major Im gonna have to fix soon.
Had a similar issues with the dinette in the bunk room. The seats were a little out of square not that big of a deal but they were about 1" to far apart so the table wouldn't even sit on the edges of the seats at all. Never tried the one in the kitchen yet. Temporary fix was to turn the table around the other way and lay a 4' long piece of 1X6 board to fill in the rest of the gap. Probably more of a hassle than what it's worth to get the dealer out to fix it so ill just cut to length and stain a couple pieces of oak about the same size as the ones on there for the table to rest on. Glue, clamp then screw them to make the edge a little wider on each side.

The shower worked good but eventually will upgrade the shower head to an oxygenics. They have pretty decent showers at the CG that I use most of the time anyways. A little water seeps through under the shower doors so ill just run a small bead of clear silicone. Again easy fix. Other than that no leaks.

Also another thing I noticed on the breaker panel is that the breaker marked "water heater" actually shuts the fridge off, so next time I'm down ill go thru every breaker to make sure everything is labeled properly.

Just came back from 5 nights, other than these small issues were really happy with the trailer. Yeah the mattress was pretty crappy so we picked up a 1.5" memory foam for 50 bucks, almost as good as my bed at home now.
