You are correct I didn't see the location till after I posted. I am in Cincinnati, Ohio which seems to be the RV Wholesaler part of the country!! We are only about 4 hours from Goshen / Elkhart which is the RV capital.

Our askin price is in canadian dollars and since the US dollar is higher right now it would be a deal for you. Other than I assume you are not close by. We are on the border of Michigan.
Wish we were closer! We're about 30 miles south of Vancouver.

as far as i know, very few are built in Calif., compared to how many are built in Indiana.
Talk to Nick at Blade Chevy, he's a good guy and should be able to help you.
i'm betting that that model was built in Indiana.

x2 on the photos not matching the floor plan.

In the pictures you can see a taller pantry next to the stove and also drawers below the entry door wardrobe. There is a TV shelf by the entry door is listed on the floor plan.

Canadiancrew:
I looked up your cruise lite 221rbxl on the internet. Example is here:

http://www.southavenrv.com/rv/southa...e+lite+221rbxl

It doesn't have the pantry between the stove and fridge, so it matches the floor plan that JCO has been looking at on the Blade RV website, but it doesn't match the pics of the trailer on the Blade RV website that he's been looking at.

So again, I have to wonder: what is the trailer that Blade RV is REALLY selling, because the floor plan they are showing doesn't match the pics of the trailer he's claiming to have.

Thanks for mentioning Nick.He wasn't the fellow I dealt with but I've read reviews of Blade Chevy and found it impossible to weigh pros and cons. So you've dealt with him and that group?

22RB, 22RBXL, 221RBXL, etc... I can see where an error could be made by someone with limited experience. The ad might be in error for the correct model brand/number/year, floor plan and/or photos.

Ask for a pic of the sticker with the model information. It should be on the outside of the TT and also inside the entry door jam.

May I suggest that any trailer you look at look at the roof even if it
only a year or two old. You are looking at a 2011 trailer, 4 years old,
you nor the sale's person knows how the previous good of upkeep
they did. A dealer should have some type of a lift if there is not a
ladder on the back of the trailer. Depending on how long your trailer
is a new roof could cost you 3 or 4K or more if you have more than
roof problems from a leaky roof

Good luck

Great to know. If he's a good guy I'm sure he follows through where he's working. I hope I don't sound paranoid, but I've been blindsided before and maybe have become extra cautious when buying stuff.
