wE got the best price from rvcapitalwholesalers. They are located near the factory.

I never heard of a wholesaler and nearly bought from a dealer down here pay a whopping higher price. I am glad i found a post on another board about wholesalers and did some research.

V-lite 30WRLS

Ours came equipped with the power awning. Also a 22 inch Venturer 12 volt digital flat screen HDTV. This TV is amazing- we live in Jacksonville Fla., and the amount of free over air channels is amazing! Also, the picture is CRYSTAL CLEAR, even with the ANTENNA DOWN!! We have an old analog TV in the house, that gets Terrible reception on rabbit ears, and about 5 channels, AT BEST. I like the power awning, even though you can't tilt it for runoff.
I saw a post where someone tied theirs tight- retracting the gas shock, pulling down on one side, and thereby tilting the awning in the rain. I'm gonna try that! I'm sending you some pics of our V-lite. Thanks, Randy

I can send you some more. We have only been camping in ours 2 weekends. One with no power or water, and one with full hookups. Our youngest son is on 3 baseball teams, and we can't get away much at this time! Be sure before picking yours up that you have a class IV load leveling hitch, with the 2 bars. Mine is the reese dual cam set up, and with this camper, YOU WILL NEED IT!! I also have the side friction brake, but I really don't think it's necessary. We bought ours at the dealer that was on his lot for only one day. He had 2 to choose from, the other one had an oliive green trim, the couch and 2 chairs were solid olive green. We liked this one better- same exact options otherwise. I learned from this forum about RV wholesalers since, and I guess I could have saved some money! But we live pretty far from the factory, so shipping would have been steep. We paid 29,995. Plus a 7 year extended warranty. We traded in a Coleman Fleetwood pop up, 2001 utah, fully loaded, and got 6500. in trade- more than we paid! Here's more pics! We do civil war reenacting, so the closet is full of that stuff! (one reason we liked the Vlite!) Randy

I spoke with my dealer yesterday and my 831krss is coming off line tomorrow and he said the transport company has been really good about delivering quickly so he is expecting delivery late next week or early following week. I placed my order on March 28 so it's right on schedule to what the dealer originally told me. I'm still holding my breath though until i actually see it sitting on the dealers lot cause i have a trip planned for May 27th which is cutting close but he said it'll be here in time.
