We finally did it.

After months and months of looking online then traveling to more dealers than we can count. My wife and I on a whim visited a local dealer the weekend of the 4th. They were closed that Saturday. I wasn't aware they'd be closed, but they're a small 9 employee dealer who's been in business since 1971. They pride themselves on customer service and our whole buying experience has showed that. The original owners son now runs the business and is the head tech. He was more than helpful in our process and sometimes you just get a feeling about a dealer. We had that leaving on our 2nd visit. I started researching the dealership and I really looked hard and I couldn't find one single bad review about them. Each employee has been there a minimum of 9 years, which to me, says a lot in this business. Anyway we picked up our 2017 Cherokee Grey Wolf Limited 26BH today. I took my Tom Boles PDI checklist with me and spent a couple of hours going through. One vent had a rattle which was wrapper that hadn't been removed. I also had to tighten a few fittings as I've read that has been a notorious problem. I can't wait to go and try this baby out!

We were undecided till last week so we planned our Tennessee trip non-camping this year. We're planning on going local the weekend after we get back.

Congrats on your purchase and welcome from Southern Illinois. I have a 2015 model and I like the upgrades that I see on yours.

Thanks. I'm still undecided if I like the electric stabalizers. The electric togune jack is nice but I was used to cranking and it seems slower than manual. The electric awning is by far my favorite feature. I loathed the awning on our popup. The bag sucked and the awning did too. This is way bigger too. The led lights are cool. I'm sure they're Uber bright.

I think I would like to have those stab jacks, but I can crank all of mine down within 5 minutes. The tongue jack is slow for sure. Take a real good look at your awning structure as it is not designed for big wind. Never sleep or walk away from it when you have it out. If I could find a weatherman I could trust, I might feel different. The LED lights outside are blinding...

Start preparing to spend more money to protect your investment. Get some power protection first. This forum is packed with information. Use the search feature.

Always read the "For Sale" section as you may save yourself some bucks. I found a couple of members on here that sell a solution for the awning and wind issue there.

The last bit of my novel here would be to advise you to take what you need from the house and put it in the camper. Buy new stuff for the house. My wife got real keen on that plan.

Whew. My fingers are tired. Safe travels...
