The first AFrame I looked at on the lot had one interior latch that would not close. I tried and the salesman tried. Without forcing it, it was stuck open. While it is sad that you didn't get to take your camper home, it is good that the dealer is working to solve the problem.

Set Up Difficulty

Hi! I have a Flagstaff 12 SC. I bought it New. Never had a problem setting up until recently. As the others have mentioned, the latches should be snug but not hard to close. My problem was the camper was not level enough. Once I adjusted the jacks it went together perfectly. Also you need to make sure that the roof panels have been completely elevated. Once you get this straightened out, you will love your camper.

The wind pin (alignment bolt?) on the kitchen side wall of our 128s used to give me fits on occasion. Now, I set the the front driver side stabilizer by itself before bringing up the roof and walls. This works for us every time.

We picked up our new A122s today and had no set up problems. You guys nailed the alignment problem: failure to level the unit first (operator error, I think this is called). Once we got it close to level & stabilizers down; it set like a dream, or at least like the video instruction, which would have been wise to view first. Lessons learned by this owner & dealer techs. Lol.
