Thanks for posting the price verification, yes we were all curious. I looked at it online and they sure are a nice looking rig and seem to be built well. Enjoy when you get one.

That is a great looking trailer, one I too have had my eye on. This past July we purchased our first RV of any kind and went with a Coachmen FE 292 BHDS; a good travel trailer, haven’t had any major issues with it. That said, now that we have one I can see things I’d really like to have from a comfort and operational standpoint. We are planning to purchase something new in the next 18-24 months and are looking at these options ranging from another travel trailer, Class B+, Class C and Class Super C:

- Aviator Wright Flyer – honestly, I love the layout and the major upgrades
- Forester 3011 DS
- Forester 3051 S
- Nexus Ghost 34G or 36G (new for their 2014 line up)

All have their pros/cons and I am not sure what we are leaning towards right now.

I am looking forward to more posts about your new Aviator, that is one fine Travel Trailer for sure!!

that is soooooo sad, buying when they first came out sucks!!! I could have bought 2 for what I paid. Toyboy traded his in on a MH, Giant would let his go for 45,000 and it has a lot up upgrades, the factory repaint is amazing and I love the colors they used. Oh well good luck but you might want to list it in the for sale section

Greetings to my fellow Aviators. My wife and I just bought the last (or maybe the only) Wright-Flyer in Minnesota #AWF1908. We have been admiring them for more than a year and decided with a very limited supply and prices down to about the same a nice 5er it was good as time as any. The used aviator for sale in the posting above was tempting, but after reading on the forum about various problems, we wanted the factory warranty. Scott Steetes is a rv salesman in Missouri who took it in on trade, I think it was Roving bear's Aviator. I've enjoyed reading all the posts and hearing about the the good and the bad. Buying an unproven product is always risky but I like the Aviator concept. I guess time will tell. Think spring!

We're Class a RVrs, but we know what you're going through with that surgery, DW has had both shoulders done. The first one (LH) was the after effects of being a dental assistant to a children's dentist for 12 years. That one was done by conventional techniques with about a 3" incision.

About 18 months later, she was dragged across a neighbor's front yard by our Labrador chasing his cat. She didn't dare let go because the dog would have gone into the neigbou'rs house and done all kinds of damage.

I guess the damage to the second shoulder was a lot worse. The surgeon that did the operation is supposed to be one of the best in the nation. It was done with micro tools. Unfortunatley, the result was nowhere near as good as the earlier one and she's still having problems.

Not sure what next. Since she's an avid knitter, this particular problem really bugs her, as it cuts into her knitting time!

I am sure you got a good price as around here a fully equiped wright flyer is around 54,000 with everything including 2 A/C units, just be warned trade in really sucks

I think we got a pretty fair price (47k no second a/c or fancy paint). I know there is always a better deal to be had and trade-in value is much less, but I have no plans to trade it in. I plan to keep it at a great RV park on the north shore of lake Superior. The days are beautiful, but the nights can be quite cool so I will likely use the furnace rather than the A/C. The thick insulation should save on propane costs. My last two travel trailers slowly rotted away so I'm hopeful with the fiberglass roof and other composites this trailer will last for decades. I really look forward to hearing from everybody how their Aviators are working out!

unless corrected you will notice the lights flash when you turn on the bathroom lights, second look under your round table and make sure they did not split the wood that attaches the table to the stand. Water flow at the kitchen was another problem, also the outside quick connect for the hose was the wrong one, door on mine is out of alignment so the dead bolt was not actually locking. as far as wall thickness, it is not a consistent 5" so its not quite as well insulated as advertised, lack of a heat pump makes the furnace a necessity, also on humid days you will want to equalize the inside and outside temps. prior to leaving it closed up as you will find moisture on all of the interior surfaces when you open it up. also install a battery cutoff as they last about 7 days in storage. And yes 47,000 is a good price for a new one.
