Hello USMC0369,

Don't you just LOVE the Outpost RV in Elkhart? did you find them here or on e-bay? Kyle and Earl ROCK!!! Made it soooo easy and nice. We stayed there for several days for a 'shake down" and fix anything that may need to be fixed or adjusted.

They also had the best prices around.

USMC0369:
Ask Kyle to order you the sewer storage pipe that is at least 64". I haven't had any luck with the "tube" that came with the 19RR. All sewer hoses that I have found are at least 56" and the "tube" that comes with the 19RR is 46". So, ask if he can replace the 46" with the 64" E-Z Hose Carrier. They come in 26", 46" and 64". The E-Z Hose Carrier that is standard for the 19RR (2012) is 46". Also, you can get a better price on the necessary stuff at Walmart and Camping World for less than the price in IN.

Thanks for the advice guys.

Yes to everything Campnqueen. It was the post I read hear that helped me to make my decision to buy the Camper on Ebay (as well as Kyle and Earl's feedback) I plan on sticking around for a day or so to take care of any warranty work as well. Do you have any advice on what to look out for, or to look at?

Thanks HDFLST I will make sure I do that, (added to my check list). I plan to crawl all over that thing like a spider monkey! ha ha. I just wish I knew more potential problems to look for. You guys are great and I just love the positive energy in this thread. Thanks!

I too have just purchased the 19RR. It looks like it will work great for me, but......I quickly discovered the ramp issue trying to load my Road King. I read some of the different ideas that people have had but would appreciate more details and maybe some photos of solutions. I'm a gotta see it kind of guy.....Thanks to all of you for all the information on this thread. It's fantastic.

Will let you know after this weekend. Will be trying out the $49.00 ramp from Lowe's with an elevated ramp to lessen the angle coming in to the garage area. Kickstand springs may be cheap but they're a pain in the backside to install. Besides they tear up the diamond plate in the treailer.

Will post some pics after this coming weekend.

...off we go now

We are still waiting for our specific delivery date from The OutPost RV. We put our deposit down 5 weeks ago (mid March) and Earl contacted us today that he feels ours will be made in the next 10 production days (2 weeks). We may have caused our own delay by ordering a specific interior color and we were trying to order it with the optional faux wood floor that was available in the 2011 models. In 2012, faux wood is not available and the only other floor available is a black heavy duty floor like they put in the Wolf Pup series. We decided to go with the standard faux tile floor since the black was too utilitarian. So since we tried ordering those things, we may have caused our delivery to take longer versus just getting one that Earl and Kyle have coming in (I think they purchase several at a time). We are still hoping we will drive up to Indiana and pick ours up mid May. I heard from Stargazerandu that they were picking their's up this week.

I agree with USMC0369, if any current owners have had issues with specific areas of the 19RR, it sure would be good to have a list of things to check out when we arrive. Rather have the OutPostRV correct any mistakes than have to take it to a local Forest River Dealer and explain why I did not purchase it from them.

We also ordered the range hood over the stove and opt'ed for adding electric strips in the A/C so we can heat with the campground's electric versus using the gas furnace. Not sure if these two options also added to the delivery time, but I thought Earl told me both of these were options could be added at the dealer.

Earl told me today that Forest River is making 50 19RR's a DAY! or 250 a week and they are currently back ordered at 2000 units (8 weeks). I would say they are selling like hot cakes.

Might be worth talking to the dealer about an A/C conversion for the hot water heater too. It would be nice to use gas to bring up to temp, then use A/C to keep it there. On my wish list anyway.

Welcome new and future 19rr owners.

Thanks HDCliff.

Actually all the models that Earl and Kyle sell at the OutPost RV already come with the dual power water heater (Gas or Electric). So at this point if we use campgrounds the only propane we will use is for cooking and running the fridge while on the road.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I was looking at the short waste hose storage tube, under the coach, that was mentioned earlier. That is a short storage tube! Thanks for the advice! I will get that sucker changed for sure.

I have a 19rr at a dealership close to me that I can look at. Picking mine up in June. I went out there to try to get a hitch hight, so I can set up my weight distribution hitch.

The Coach was not level but I figured about 24inches from the ground to the top of the ball coupler? Does that seem about right?

Thanks all!

19RR Toy Hauler ramp

I have been thinking about buying the 19RR toy hauler, especially since it is more light weight than a lot of toy haulers out there. I will have a 2008 HD Heritage Cycle that I will have to load and I have read the problems of loading. I wanted to find out if anyone has bought a additional ramp to load their Cycle and if it worked well, what size and brand of ramp. I have never owned a trailer or toy hauler, so this will be my first adventure. Thanks for any help.
