Jumped the gun...Ordered new 23ikss today!!

Was going to wait until Jan 2014. Found out you can order a 2014 at 2013 prices until end of August and still get the 2013 interior colors (DW wanted Oasis). Used prices off the internet on the local dealer as leverage and got a price I could live with. Also got dealer to upgrade A/C to 15,000 BTU which you can not get from the factory anymore. Should be here in October just in time to squeeze in some camping before winter sets in. Can't wait!!

Wow, you can't upgrade to a 15k a/c any longer? What's the story behind that?

Congratulations on your order!

Congratulations on your order!

When I asked the dealer about that they said Flagstaff makes small campers in one factory and larger ones in another. They try to keep the number of different parts needed on hand to a minimum. They also base options and standard features on how many customers order a particular option. If there is little demand, they will discontinue an option. When I was searching the internet for a 23ikss, I only found one in stock at a dealer that had the A/C upgrade.

Congrats on your new Hybrid!

since you live in Ohio, i'd be interested to know what Shamrock dealer was able to be competitive with Ohio's RVWholesalers' prices.

Enjoy! Hopefully some of this warm weather hangs around a few more weeks for some nice fall camping. We had ours out last weekend and temps dropped into the low 40's. The furnace kept it very comfortable inside, but the tent ends had a lot of condensation. Never had that issue with our popup, but we never used it before Memorial Day or after Labor Day either. I had read several threads on here about keeping the tent ends ends cracked open and a couple windows or vents open. Thought we did that, but wasn't quite enough. Opened them up a little more and got rid of most of it.
