Has anyone camped in the Airflyte yet?

Just wondering if anyone has camped in their Shasta yet. How did it go. Any problems. I'm still working on mine trying to get it ready.

Yes. No issues except the AC. You can read about the issues in other threads. It also rained so I got to check for any leaks.

We've camped a total of six nights, all in good weather. No problems during those stays, but as regal says, lots of issues I've been fixing in between trips.

We camped about 6 nights on two trips. Only real problem was A/C which I was already aware of and the tires rubbing in the wheel well which we noticed afterward. We have it at dealership for warranty work now.

Have camped three times for about 9 nights. I have a 16' production number 417. Found many of the same issues that others have experienced in earlier threads regarding a/c unit, wheelwell /tire clearance, and black water tank valve leaking. Took it to the authorized dealer for warranty repairs. The corrections were made but the a/c still does not work adequately. The dealer is talking to Shasta about the possibility of replacing the a/c unit with one that will fit in the same cabinet but with more BTUs or roof mounting an a/c unit which is common on many RVs. Waiting on a response from Shasta. The dealer also checked for recalls while they had the trailer and found that there was one covering an issue where the front of the trailer body was not adequately connected to the frame. They ordered the repair parts and fixed the problem.

Please, more information on the "trailer body was not adequately connected to the frame" issue. I don't think that's a proper recall, but perhaps some kind of technical service bulletin?

3 months on the road.

Just returned from 3 months on the road in Canada and Alaska. Small repairs all the way but nothing major. Did the AC upgrade on the road in Fairbanks thanks to my local sheet metal shop. Anyone who wants to do the the long haul, stock up on a selection of screws and battery powered tools with all the bits for Philips, Roberts, 1/4"&5/16 hex and drill bits for pilot holes. Some 16 ga. sheet metal strapping to rehang the plumbing. Caulking gun and silicon to plug all the holes in the fender wells and some glazers Urethane to repair the window falling out(jalousie pane).
Any travel over dust or mud the tow vehicle will fill the trailer thru the AC vent. It comes in under the cabinets through all the holes in cabinet walls. Plug all these holes and put a cover over the AC vent. (Don't forget to remove it when using the AC)Our problems were small compared to some other RVers had encountered along the road. We were in the middle nowhere and to be tooled-up. Have a good trip.

Douglaslive, Sorry I don't have much more information. The dealer found this issue and fixed it without me asking them to. They said it was a recall issue. Their work order said "front body not attached to frame". They "replaced metal frame and diecuts". They said that this is a common problem with this trailer and that is why the looked for it. I would contact a authorized dealer near you and ask a few questions.

Our front panel was replaced before we took possession. They may have called it a "recall," but the only word from NHTSA is this:
