We picked up our camper last night. Everything went great, there were no hiccups or problems. We did our PDI with one of the guys from the shop. He doesnít do them normally, but the regular guy was unavailable. Thatís okay, because Steve was awesome. He was really patient with us, very knowledgeable and answered ALL of our questions. I printed off a PDI checklist from here and brought it along as a guide, it was a great resource to have.
We are thrilled with the quality of the camper, the cherry cabinets look fantastic. The only issue was a bracket on the door that needed to be moved. The screen door wouldnít come unlatched, but Steve fixed it right away.
Since we didnít purchase the $1000 Husky hitch from the dealer (we bought the new Andersen) we had to pull it across the street to the vacant strip mall to do the install. It took about 40 minutes for DH and my Dad to get it done. The shop guys were very interested in our hitch, Steve actually came over when we were done to check it out. They thought it was a great concept and wanted to see how it worked. I donít think the owner was pleased, she told us multiple times we couldnít install it on her property. Which weíre 100% fine with, we know itís an insurance reason. I donít think the shop guys were allowed to go near it either, my Dad had to help DH back it up and get the trailer on the ball.
DH said that he could hardly feel the camper behind the trailer. We brought it home (all freeway under construction, thank you Michigan!) It was a little windy yesterday, but not horrible. DH couldnít be more pleased with how the hitch performed. It was blowing my Dadís mind because heís never seen anything like it in his 30 years of experience.
Our camper is now in the driveway and the kids and I are going to be packing it all day to get ready for our weekend getaway 40 minutes from home. I only have 1 pic since DH has them all on his phone.
I plan to post more when we get back on Sunday and let you know how it goes.
