PapaSmurf, did you have any issues arise with your new Silverback on its maiden voyage?

The worse problem we had was trying to lite the pilot on the oven. Our Wildcat did not have a conventional oven with the stove, it had the convection microwave and stove top only. So we had forgotten what a bear it is to lite an RV oven.

Everything else was pretty much just discovery of all the upgraded features vs. the Wildcat. The room is just astounding! Could not get over how much room there was in the bedroom and "great" room.

For me the nicest feature is the enclosed bathroom, I never liked taking a shower in the bedroom. And having a "real" door to close in the bedroom, instead of the slider between the kitchen and the bath. I get up about 4:00 everyday and the wife gets up about 8:00. The ability to get up, close the door, have full use of the bathroom and go make coffee and watch the news without waking her was worth the price of the trailer!

We had wind on top of the mountain the whole weekend, with occasional showers. The electric awning is real nice for this weather. You can open the awning about 3 feet, and it does not bounce and flap, like it does fully deployed. That way you can open the outer door and enjoy the view without getting the doors wet. or having a lot of sunshine. The vinyl inserts in the screen door are really nice as well, gives you a full view door to enjoy the outdoors.

The only thing I did not care for was the sky lite in the shower, it is clear and just let's in too much sun and heat. Went to Lowes, bought a small roll of sunscreen screen mesh, took the inside portion of the sky lite down cut a piece of sunscreen to cover the entire structure, laid it over and re-screwed it to the ceiling - viola no more bright sunshine in the bathroom.
