Just returned from a RV show in Salem, OR. Wager's Trailer Sales
(local CC dealer) had some Silverbacks, Hathaway's and one Champagne there. They did have a 34RL2 there so that was nice...although on the outside of the door it just says "34RL". But it was for sure the RL2 because of the new bathroom with double vanity. Changed our mind on a thing or two, regarding our build, and confirmed other options after spending A LOT of time with those trailers...
-after playing with the powered theater seating we've decided to get that in place of the standard non-power theater seating. Had too much fun playing with that.
-played with the cord reel as well and it's not as flimsy as I had imagined. It's by MOR/ryde and must be their entry cord reel model. Will still forgo it on the order form and get one of the beefier models from Amazon for cheaper. The Champagne had this one
by MOR/ryde and it was very nice. Manual crank but still nice.
-decided for sure to get the 12' slide out awning
-the Champagne had the bike hitch receiver. I got underneath to check out the welds. Yeah you all were right...would not trust my bike on that thing. Thank you! Side note: My lord that Champagne is gorgeous!!! I've been in it before but it still wows me everytime. I hear the 2017's (yet to be shipped) are going to be even nicer.
-we had decided on the 20 cu ft residential fridge but after seeing it in one of the trailers today it just seems too big for just the two of us. We get by just fine with our 8 cu ft fridge in our current trailer. Thinking of going for the stock 18 cu ft residential fridge but none of the CC units there had one and I can't find any photos of a CC with that fridge installed. It's got to be a less wide fridge, no double doors, so then do you get a few more inches of counter space??? Or do they put in a tiny pantry in the extra space that the stock fridge provides???
-probably going for the queen bed. We have a king at home and a queen in current trailer and the size doesn't bother us at all. Main reason for going with the queen in the 34RL2 is to have a few more inches of room between the bed and closet doors. A bit tight with a king in that floor plan.
-played with the bedroom wall heater and confirmed we don't need it. Decent little unit though, but too expensive for what it is.
-for sure decided against the $900 trailair pin box. I'll install a MOR/ryde pin box which I can get for under $600. If I decide to trade in our current trailer (if no luck selling to private party) then I'll have dealer take current MOR/ryde pin box off and swap it with stock CC pin box.
Walked into a $400K Class A today at the show....big mistake. Wife grabbed my jacket sleeve, pulled me out of there and said, "No!".
