Depending on what is installed on the roof, the AC may not be the highest item. My forward MAXX Air is only an inch lower than the Coleman Mach II AC.

The highest item on my camper was the FM antenna until it bent when I hit a tree branch; now it is the AC.

Thanks for the input!! I think we will wait till it gets here before adjusting the height of the patio, so we know exactly how high we need to go!!! We currently have 10'-8" clear.. Hopefully we won't have to go too much higher!!

So after a really quick walk through which I insisted on, before doing any paperwork and such, everything looks good! Couple of very minor scuffs and such!!! It has the charleston fabric and the cherry cabinets!!
Scheduled pickup is saturday!! Can't wait!!!

I add the extra 4 feet for when the MIL is tied to the roof in her rocking chair.

Camped Memorial Day weekend and everything was great until hubby went to change the speakers and pushed the "A" button on the Genesis unit and the button pushed alllllll the way in.

It wasn't difficult to go from tent camping to this beautiful camper. I did remark at one point that I would never have brought fresh fruit with me when tent camping - the whole "cooler" issue was always a hassle. I didn't spend every waking moment inside, even when it rained on us on Sunday and was 86 and humid on Monday. Got to try the heat and the air conditioning on the same weekend!!! Welcome to Wisconsin!

Did notice that the upholstery on the couch was bunched up on one side on the back cushion, and being the picky person I am, I want it repaired.

So now it's back at the dealer. He's ordering us a new Genesis 3.0 stereo unit and sending the couch out to a local upholstery shop to get the stitching all fixed up. Other than those two minor issues, everything went super!!

We had full water and sewer hookups, but when we go in June for a week, we won't have either. That will take some getting used to....I have a feeling he's going to make me empty the "blue boy."

Does your unit have the Genesis 3.0 unit? I haven't been able to confirm from Bob Fields if this unit is, in fact, a Concertone unit or something else entirely.

I did take a bunch of photos (even set up the tripod!), but I haven't had a chance to download them yet. Tuesday & Wednesday were both golf nights, and last night we had to drop off the camper at our dealer. Maybe tonight.....

Did you camp in yours yet, and did you take any photos??
