If you have a CAT scale near the dealer, I would have it weighed prior to purchase if possible. Just my .02... I sincerely hope all is well with it and I hope you have many wonderful and memorable trips in it! Again, congrats!

Congratulations!! And remember all those MODs you put on your last RV? Well if they FIT take 'em! They add NO resale value to your unit if you are trading it in!

I am required to do mods DW asked me today what all I had planned for the new one. I told her I would need to spend some quality time with it and I will find a way to "make it ours"

I took the our trade in today and dropped it off. Scheduled our PDI for next Saturday morning so we will be taking possession then. We are both getting more and more excited about this new trailer. It looks like we will be taking it out for a quick weekend trip in December for a shakedown run.

My mistake, do you consider "adding things" a modification?
