I did wonder when I saw your user name but was a little unsure because the rank of Inspector isn't too common over this side of the Atlantic from what I've seen. Thank you for your service and if you have retired I hope you enjoy many, many years drawing the pension and RVing to the full.

Every brand has owners that have gotten the "friday build." It sounds like you may be familiar with the term thanks to your last rig. Have you considered bringing in a mobile repair tech at a minimum to help with the inspection / walk through or if you're feeling froggy maybe bring an electrician or plumber friend along to check the trades. You get a home inspected when you buy it, why not the home on wheels?

I have the on demand water heater, and I use a water softener. I'm sure you will like it, probably would like any CC rv.

Did you install the washer/dryer yourself or hire someone? I want to install them in my CC and I need to find a good place to order a pair from. What brand did you buy?

I did the install myself, went pretty good. Used a 2 wheel cart for the washer, carried the dryer up. I drilled for the outlet, little scary.
I have the Ariston (splendid) washer and vented dryer, stackable. I bought them off craigslist, older couple like us, they stated they used them about 4 times, very good condition. Got a good buy on them. Excited to go camping next week to try them. I bought them last Dec, winterized the washer, then after getting it in the CC, I ran a cycle thru it to get the rv fluid out.

It's a very nice rig from my research! We ended up with a Cardinal 3250 because it's 6' shorter (41' vs 35') and has more options to fit in various campgrounds.
We love ours so far and it has more than enough space for us and our lab. Plenty of storage as well.
Good luck!

I would recommend any Forest River product. They have the Forest River Owners Group (FROG). They have a huge rally 800+ RV's attending in Goshen, IN in August each year. Factory personnel will repair any three or four items you have wrong at NO CHARGE. Cedar Creek really stands behind their product and will take care of you.
