After having seen you in action with a set of tools, there's no doubt in my mind you could beef up that Honda to haul a fifth wheel.

Happy camping!

We were quite fearless going in to look because we knew there was no way we would get the deal that we would need to make the purchase. WRONG!

We're both still a bit apprehensive with this purchase because this is the first time we've agreed to a deal without seeing firsthand the EXACT floorplan that we were buying. The dealer had a 29RE and we wanted the 29RL.

Please let me know what kind of coffee that was. We'll serve it at the FROG Rally.
LOL, that would be one way to create a backlog of orders for the factory.

We've ordered two campers without having set foot in either. The most nervous part is that the manufacturers tend to make changes whenever the mood strikes them and therefore, not being completely sure what will be delivered.

Before our current camper was ordered, we had the sales rep from RV Direct get assurance from their contact at Rockwood that no changes were in the works.

What is the delivery time?

Dave

I know what you mean about changes in mid-stream Dave. Hopefully there won't be any surprises that would become a deal breaker for us.

The unit we are buying is supposed to be finished the middle of next week. Apparently the factory had a 29RL nearing completion that didn’t have a buyer. We are having a second A/C installed at the factory. When it will actually get to the dealership is anybody’s guess.

We actually liked the 29RE floor plan that was on the dealer’s lot, but since the fridge couldn’t be accessed with the slides in we didn’t want it.

I was thinking more along the lines of a Silverback Grizzly. Something like this
