Good to hear that you have it and are already camping in it.

Happy to hear you are enjoying your Aviator and you found a local dealer willing to help if need be. I agree the fireplace is great for taking the chill out and it looks nice too. We enjoy our Aviator very much and many people stop and ask about it. We are currently overlooking the waters of lake Superior. Time for smores!

Oh fun! Yes every time we stop we get questions. We have driven from Eugene, OR via Yellowstone and now heading towards Kansas City then toward Nashville to go home in AL. Looking forward to a camping trip where we can stay several days. Maybe one day there will be an Aviator group camping to meet fellow Aviator campers!. Have fun

When you get home, contact me about a dealer in Florence. Also read the discussion about changing water filters. Might want to stay with the blue one on the hose.

Dropped off my Aviator at Bankston RV in Florence, AL. Jaime there was very nice and more than willing to help us out with the warranty issues we had and boy the list grew everyday coming home. The last night the Awning motor decided to go out. But we still love the camper and think after the bugs are worked out it will be great. But after hearing all horror stories about dealers not wanting to help us out because we did not purchase it from them, I have to admit I was worried. But Jaime at Bankston RV Florence Location has really eased my concerns.

Our awning motor went out too. Fortunately it went out while it was at the dealer. I was told Carefree Awnings had a lot of problems with this motor. Hopefully the replacement is made to last a little longer!

Oh I hope so! We were at the camp ground when it went out. This was the first time we used it! Did you have any problems with your kitchen faucet coming on with the vibration of the camper? We did twice and flooded the camper. Bankston Rv is going to see what can be done about that.

Yes we had the same trouble with the faucet but it is easy to deal with. All you need to do is first make sure that if you have water in your fresh water tank the water pump is turned off (Switch in the bathroom). Second, after you disconnect the water from the campground open the kitchen faucet and hold the toilet flush pedal down until there is no water pressure left in the system. Now you can just leave the kitchen faucet in the down position and nothing will happen. We also travel with the round dinette lowered just to keep it from straining the pedestal to much.

Good Idea! We will try that. Also the Dinette table is a good Idea. Thanks for that advice.
