DH and I bought your same model on January 4th. We're FINALLY getting weather OK to camp in this weekend. She's loaded and just waiting on DH to get off work! Yip Yip YAHOO!
Fridge is loaded, pantry is stocked, wardrobe is packed...we're OUTTA HERE!
Prior to the 5er we owned a Flagstaff 30IKSS (V-Lite). We only owned it (cringe) 8 months and decided we wanted a 5er instead of a bumper pull
We had one issue with the V-Lite (a fire hazard electrical snafu) and Flagstaff (as well as our dealer) was AWESOME! The correction/fix was first class all the way and those we spoke with at Flagstaff couldn't have treated us better.
Trust me, if Flagstaff hadn't treated us well on the V-Lite we would *not* have gone with Flagstaff for the 5er.
Check the Flagstaff sub-forum here. There aren't that many problem threads there.
It's like buying a new car, or a new home. There will be bugs to work out, but I feel certain you (and we) will be pleased with Flagstaff's response to any issues you have.
Oh, I forgot...porterhouse steaks are marinating in the fridge! (we don't "camp", we "glamp"!!! (glamour camping) Yeah, I stole that word from someone else here on the forum.
And in your 8528, you're certainly going to be "glamping"! She's a thing of beauty, she is.
Just out of curiosity, what issues came up that caused you to take it back for warranty?
And if we have any issues during our shakedown this weekend, I'll post 'em here when we get back.
That way you'll get a heads up in case you have the same issues.
Oh, I forgot....here's your super-duper Flagstaff Owners (((((((HUG))))))
