New LaCrosse 303 RKS Pics

We finally got the trailer home. PDI went perfect. All paperwork was ready with no add on charges or fees. Everything went smooth and easy, the way it should. Towed the old trailer up there and the new one back home (approx 120 miles each way) with no problems and I couldn't tell any difference in towing even though the dry weight is 800 lbs heavier than my old trailer. Actually got better milage on the way back.

Would like to be out, but we'll spend today getting it ready and loading it up. I have a four day weekend coming up starting Thursday, so if the weather looks OK we'll head out to our local State Park. So far they're forecasting 50% rain Thursday and sunshine the rest of the weekend. Highs in the mid 60's, lows in the high 40's. I can live with that.

Everything I've checked so far is good. I concentrated on construction & function more than features, so I keep finding those little things I wasn't expecting.

The small slide is actually 1/3rd in the bathroom and 2/3rd's in the bedroom with a sliding door to seperate the two. Adds more space to both areas. The bathroom also has a door in the hallway and another sliding door at the end of the hallway to close off the bedroom.

It was 43 this morning so I went out and fired up the furnace. It has a digital thermostat, really like that. Push a button to set fan speed, cool or heat, then set the temp you want.

Trailer is solid. Very little movement. You can't hardly tell it when some one enters or exits the trailer. Elec jacks work great.

Thanks everyone and happy camping!

Gary, that is a sharp looking rig, classy in fact. I wish you the best. You and your wife have great taste or maybe I should say your wife has an eye for a great dacor. Now the fun begins again.
I remember the statement you made not to long ago about how you felt when you were having all of the troubles you were having with your Rockwood, "loosing interest" well as each day passes my out look was the same, but the cabin adjusted my out look with me to the positive side. You and your family are on the road again and I see happy times a head. Enjoy your new rig and keep us up dated.

Thanks Wade.

Yeah I'm getting that old camping feeling back. It's hard to enjoy something that's falling apart in front of your eyes and all anyone says is, "Fix it yourself." or "We know your trailer is bad, but we can't help you, that would just be giving you a handout."

We'll get a trip in this coming weekend and then probably put it up for the winter. I'll tinker with it here and there and be ready to go next March. I still have to get my Max Air vent covers on. I'm getting a few ideas on how to personalize it. Maybe you'll have time this winter to do some work on your 8314.

The wait has been worth it since that meant getting the free upgrades (Touring Edition). Most of the upgrades are pleasantries, high gloss fiberglass, counter tops & aluminum wheels, but some have a functional purpose, electric tongue jack, Equa-Flex suspension (see pic below), 8 cubic foot frig. The rear bumper grill mount is nice. This trailer came with the same gas grill that the Rockwood had, but also had instructions not to grill under the awning, fire hazard. I don't recall that warning with the Rockwood and the grill mount was on the side of the trailer under the awning.
