Just got it!

Just picked up a 2017 Catalina Legacy Edition 333RETS Saturday night. Can't wait to camp in it this weekend! First upgrade is putting an a/c on the front to help with the Florida summers. We had an old Coachmen Royal 326RLS and were extremely pleased with the quality. Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Congratulations on the new Cat.

A question if I may.

Is the Cat 30 or 50 amp and is it pre wired for the 2nd AC?

Ford, it's a 50 amp and yes, it's pre-wired for the 2nd A/C which should be here tomorrow. I won't have time to get it installed before our first camping trip this weekend, but at least it will be here.

Great, just wondering about the wiring and amps.

Congrats!

We picked up our Chappy exactly one year ago. Unfortunately, it was January in the Midwest. We did have some nice days last year and managed to driveway camp a couple of times before the real cold set back in.

Enjoy

We just met with our dealer today and ordered the 333RETS. I really like the layout, very attractive, feature rich camper at a very affordable price. The unit they had on the lot had the light colored cloth couch and recliners instead of the mocha colored leather or it would have been the unit we purchased. I'll know Monday afternoon when it will arrive.

This is a serious upgrade for us as our previous camper was a Salem 26TBUD. I hope our experience with this new camper is as good as our experience with the TBUD. It was a dandy little camper.

I know how you feel. We purchased our Apex the first week of December. And with the recent mild temps.... it sure has me thinking of camping!
