Hhhmmmm......I don't recall seeing any of those in Alberta when we selected ours. But then, I only went out to buy a couple of jugs of antifreeze to winterize our last TT. We had no invention of switching at the time but the deal was too good to be true. If I struggle to tow it then I know it was. Lol.

Just purchased the 8329SS. We love it. Just what we have been looking for. This is our 5th travel trailer.

My wife and I can't wait to get ours. Yellowstone will be our first big trip, since we live only a day's drive. But hope to use it many days in the Black Hills next summer learning all there is to know about trailer camping.

Oh One thing I did was replace my barrel chairs with recliners. Kicking back in style now.

Yea, we got the recliners and the fireplace. Should be a good way to save on propane while in a campground.

Where is the fireplace located at? I got one from Lowe's that sits next to the island.

We just purchased our 8329 on 10/10/2012, had it out on several camping trips already. We love the layout and the quality, we have had NO problems as of today. We got the Manhattan color, Cherry Wood, Platinum Package, Power Tongue Jack, Power Stab jacks, Minimum Carpet, Raised panel Refer Fronts, Convenience Pkg E, 15,000 btu AC, Rear Ladder, Outside Grill, Lazy Boy Recliners, Carbon Monoxide detector, Water Purifier, Create a Breeze Bath fan, Slide Toppers. We paid $29,000 plus tax from Weekend RV in Clinton Tennessee, very very good dealership. We shopped all over for the best price and was willing to travel to pick up the unit, the next best price was from RV Wholesalers (actually had the best price but we would have used up the difference in Gas and time to pick it up). We also purchased the extra year of warranty from Forest River for only $150.00. We tow this unit with our 2012 GMC 1500 Sierra 4X4 with the factory tow package and seems to work fine.

Good luck, if you choose the 8329 I think you will be very pleased.

Question 8329ss

We got ours the end of Oct. and were able to get 1 trip in before winterizing. We love it, plenty of room and storage. I am going to check on getting that extra years warranty. I wasn't offered that , only the dealerships extended one. I have been looking at the Good Sam's Extended warranty plan. Anyone have the Good Sam's plan or any other? I'm not sure that it would only be a waste of money.
