Ready to Order 8312SS Take a Look?

Wondering if anyone would take a look at the order form and let me know if I am missing something obvious? Ready to pull the trigger this week.

We like Cherry, and we heard about the brown taupe color being really warm in the sun so we opted to add options to the Platinum package in order to keep it white. I added another fan in the master bedroom to provide for cross camper ventilation.

I also have discussed tires with the dealer to understand options (not on this order form).

Thoughts?

Thank you!

Very nice camper configuration! My only suggestion would be to skip the bedroom fan and commit to the second air conditioner. If you want a data point, our last camper was the typical polar white gelcoat with white roof. Our new camper is the tan gelcoat with tan roof. Temperature difference has been unnoticeable, but this unit has better insulation R-value and a 15.0K BTU A/C vs. the former's 13.5K. The enormous difference, however, is that it stays clean looking much longer!

Figure about 3 months for delivery.

Good luck and happy camping!

X2 on the second AC unit. I'll never go back to having just one since we bought our 8327SS with it!!

I would drop the extra fan and add second A/C with 50 amp service. The 50A service will really come in handy if you camp in cold weather as you can run multiple space heaters AND still use appliances. Also, I would NOT pay for the factory power tongue jack- they tend to be low quality and noisy. I would leave the standard jack and buy a Barker VIP3500 and install it myself later. If you can remove 3 bolts, reinstall them and attach 1 wire to the positive post of your battery you can do the install. If you sell or trade this camper later, you can reinstall the manual jack and keep the Barker for the next rig.

====================

You can order the unit with the 50 Amp with A.C. Prep (without the actual A.C.) for a $290 MSRP adder.
It's a write in option.
Happy trails,

I would still add it all now. You will actually pay ~$700 for the whole shebang from the factory. If you do just the 50A and prep now, you'll spend ~$200 now and another $1000 or so for parts and labor if you decide to add the 2nd A/C later. Any camper I ever own that is over 25' in length will have 2 A/C units, but I live in the South where it can get really hot and humid in the Summer. Plus, if it's not 69-72 degrees in the camper, we aren't comfortable- and we like to be comfortable.
