New Electra Owner

Hello folks...just purchased a 2013 Electra Classic Serial No.69 from the Dealer in Winter Haven. And yes, we got it at the much discounted price...thru no ability of our own. She wanted the classic look, I wanted fiberglass composites (my business) and we made a quick move on it before the house sold as it looked like they were going away quickly. Anyway, very pleased so far and will begin digging into her this weekend to see what I can find.

Welcome aboard. The trailer is good, has lots of new features. I get stopped at every town wanting to look at it. I have some issues yet, which is why I missed the rally that started today. Read all the threads and if you have any questions, we all will help you. Hopefully we will be starting our own group since this unit will be a orphan group.

New Aviator Owner

Congrats on our Electra. WE just purchased our Wright Flyer. Heading to Oregon Friday to pick it up. Via Nevada to visit my son. Can not wait to get it. Good luck.

Having a ball playing with it so far. Spent all weekend goofing around. Looks like the first project will be adjusting the front cowl for a little cleaner fit.

I didn't have an issue there until I put the hitch on, very close fit to open, put tennis balls in hitch to keep paint. Look at the kitchen cabinets for short screws mounting, have known to come down, put light dishes for a while. My gas mileage improved by 1.5 due to sleekness. front cap looks like locks in handle, but not, can't be locked due to propane and fire regs.
enjoy

Just bought mine too in Melbourne. Love it. Have only owned it a month and we are on our second camping trip with 1100 miles on it and climbing.

Driving now to get ours in Eugene, OR. Driving Alabama to Nevada to visit my oldest, then North to Eugene. We will camp our way back for 2200 miles. Excited.

Congrats! We picked up our Electra this past Friday from Orlando Fla. It was the last one they had. We took it for a weekender in Ormond Beach. There are a few things that need to be addressed, but for what this thing is, how it looks, how it's constructed and lastly, what I paid for it, it will be worth it:-) there is nothing else that looks like this bad boy, or built like it. Not even the overpriced American icon, Airstream.

not to put down the Aviator as I had a wright flyer for about 8 months, but there are a few differences between the aviator and the Airstream ( I also had a 2009 Safari ) 1. they still make them and parts will be available, 2. my Airstream never needed warranty work 3. you can resell an Airstream and not give it away. 4. Airstream is built by a dedicated workforce that takes pride in their work. I assume you got the last one Giant Rec. world had, as it took them 2 years to sell them off the price was really getting low.
