Hi Dan - Sorry, I missed your reply back in February. I'd say we're still probably at least 5 weeks away from having our 2618W delivered, but no big deal, cuz we're still 5 weeks away from spring I'd say. Above freezing yesterday (for only the 3rd time so far), but down to -12C (10 degrees F) today and still have 4 ft. of snow everywhere waiting to melt.
Getting really sick of winter. Looks like you guys are looking at 77 degrees F tomorrow - Grrrr !!!
I'll be sure to forward my review of the new trailer once received. Have a beer for me tomorrow in your sunshine !!

thanx, rockin!

yea, i just don't get how people can live in the kind of weather a lot of you do, especially this winter.
i complain a lot about Calif. politics and costs but on a day like today, where i'm in shorts and t-shirt, it kinda doesn't seem so bad.

i'll be sitting next to my pool, for happy hour after work, drinking that beer for you.

we're going back and forth with what to do. right now the 2618W is the one the DW likes best and that we can tow with our Avalanche.
but we also are thinking we should wait until after this summer, to see if we may want to move up to a 5th wheel. of course, it'll mean a different tow vehicle.

Well.... I can still go outside in shorts, but it's gotta be a quick-step to the outdoor hot tub. Shovelled a whack of snow off the deck yesterday, so if/when it ever melts, it doesn't seep into the basement. How sad is that ?!?
By the way... how can I figure out all the acronyms on this forum? DH... DW... etc? Are they listed anywhere?

Ha!!! Here's a good one then....
I told my wife that DH meant Driver Husband and DW meant Dish Washer... she wasn't thoroughly impressed. Luckingly, she has a great sense of humor.
Have a great weekend !!!

I have a 2618W on order, RVW, never seen one. I would really like to know if it has low point drains? I know it has one for the fresh water tank.

all modern travel trailers have low point drains.
i've been in a 2618 but didn't look for them, since they all have them.

2618W

We get our new 2618W in three weeks. Never seen one. At camping world we would say things like, our camper will have this campers kitchen, then go in another Windjammer and say we will have this bedroom, so we kind of know but we have never seen one. You can find some video's on u-tube. We got all the bells on this one, it might be our last. RVW in Ohio, is 650 miles one way, but man did we save money on the unit. It is worth the trouble to go pick it up. Hope you got the diamond package. After the unit was on order for 5 weeks, we called and had the floor type changed. So even if you ordered it, its not to late to make changes.

Tooters, it's been over 3 weeks.
how did it go and have you used it yet?

we've got a quote for a 2618 with the theater seating, instead of the sofa bed.
working with Rose at RVW.
