Congrats K1050! Who did you end up buying from, your local dealer or RV direct? Did you get the price they quoted you? Thanks for sharing your outcome - always nice to hear happy endings!

We took the RV direct quote to the local dealer. They were able to come in lower and I was able to get the insurance all in the same shopping trip. We are waiting for delivery until Oct 19th because I still need a hitch. I'll post pictures from our first camping trip. My only question is about the electricity. I see some campgrounds have 50 or 30 amps. Which one do I need? Do I need adapters when I use the camper?

Your unit comes wired for a 30 amp connection. If you want to plug it in to a 15 amp outlet you'll need a 15/30 amp adapter (my dealer threw one in with the deal--they aren't expensive). When you're connected to 15 amps the only appliance you can't use is the heat pump/AC unit. Some campgrounds have 15 amp service for less money, so if you won't need the heat pump/AC you can save $$ and you'll pay back the cost of the adapter in one or two nights. I use my adapter when parked at home so I can keep the unit plugged in via an extension cord to the garage and keep the batteries (I have two) up.

Here's what Amazon has on offer. The one I have is the first one shown; the others aren't suitable for our units I believe: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...tomotive%2C258

Hello everyone. Pick up is this Friday. I'll post pictures when it's officially mine and we get the PDI. Just a quick question, does anyone know the width of the opening of the front storage unit? I want to pick up a few Rubbermaid totes and don't know what will fit in there. Thanks again!!

The inside living area measures 80-82 inches from wall to wall so I would guess your storage unit is at least 72+ inches. My pup had a similar storage up front and front to back width of about 20 inches. Or you could drop by a dealer to measure so you can just go ahead on and have fun buying STUFF in advance!!

We have stayed the first night at the campground where we purchased the camper. Happy that we did as we had one minor mishap. I have learned not to sit on the wooden bracket that is holding the table in the down position. We quickly learned it is not stable and will pull out of the bench. Luckily, the dealer will be able to repair today. :-/
