Owners of new 233S trailers...

Hey friends. If you have recently taken delivery of a 2013 or late 2012 233S, can you tell me if you've run into any problems? I'm going Thursday morning to pick up our new 2013. The dealership said delivery walk through would take a couple of hours. I'm hoping that means they take their time and do things right. This will be our second hybrid after having a Starcraft 19CK for 5 years. So there will be a lot I'm familiar with. Add in all the reading I've been doing on the forums and I feel pretty confident about it all. But I'm guessing there's someone out there that has had a bad delivery in the past month or so and I would love to hear from them with regards to any problems.

Thanks,
Mark

A couple issues that seem to keep appearing are 1) the couch is set about an inch too close to the front bed and is hitting the lower cabinet. 2) Issues with the cd/dvd player not working correctly. A 3rd issue that you will hopefully avoid is faulty bed doors - water is leaking within the door frame itself. Hope this helps and I'm sure the others will point out more items.

Two big issues during the walk though
1. Leaky bunks
2. Genesis Entertainment unit wouldn't read disks
They were both fixed before I took delivery.


Now I see my FW is not secure it slides side to side.

Check the couch issue regarding it being too close to the cabinet. The guy who did our PDI at House of Camping had fixed it before we got there, but told us what he had done. Otherwise we've been very happy with our 233S and all of the few warranty issues we've had have been repaired without question and to our satisfaction.

I've had the radio/CD/DVD player replaced x1. It stopped reading the disks after a few trips, but FR sent a replacement and we've had no problems with the new one. Hopefully it was just one bad apple.

Check to see how securely your door clamp mechanisms are attached to the doors. Ours seem to be coming loose, and the screws stripped. I'm going to have it looked at within the next week or so. It's not a big deal, and both our dealer and FR have been great so far, so I expect more of the same.

You'll love the space in the 233S! Have fun with it!

I agree with Turbo. My walkthrough for our 233S last year was unhurried and lasted 3-4 hours. My DW was along as well and no one rushes her

Actually, I think the guy enjoyed it. I gave him our list of items that we wanted to review and he estimated the time. It helped for him to be aware of our expectations.

This thread has a fairly lengthy PDI list with some hybrid specific things that you can modify or use as is.

Good luck and

I purchased from House of Camping too. So maybe they;kk have looked for a lot of the obvious things they've seen before...
