Brought It Home Today

Brought our Flagstaff 2015 26RLWS home today from Happy Hour RV in DeKalb IL. PDI went real well. Richard explained how all the stuff works and Kevin set up my Reese Straight Pull dual cam hitch and explained how to hook it up. I was impressed with the service we received at Holiday Hour and would highly recommend them if you are looking to buy an RV.
My TV and TT pulled straight with no sway when I was passed on the interstate by 18 wheelers at 60 MPH. I did notice some buffeting when they moved into my lane after passing. I'm pretty sure that's normal as I recall when I pulled a two horse trailer.
All in all it was a great day and I have it sitting in my driveway ready to wash and wax in the next couple of days.
I did print a copy of the Forest River extended warranty form and have it ready to mail tomorrow. Thanks to whoever provided the form and info.

Welcome UALSKI!! We bought our first camper (Jayco PUP) from Holiday Hour. They are GREAT people. My parents have purchased many TT's from them over years also. If they would have been closer to me I would have bought from them. They also didnt have the one I wanted on the lot. I'm impatient. Rick is the owner (I believe) and is a great guy.

We used to live in Naperville so we were a lot closer to DeKalb than we are now.

BlakeB-I was glad to hear your comment on Holiday Hour. Yes Rick and his wife, Lisa are the owners. Lisa was our sales person. After reading some of the stories on the internet about some dealers I was nervous about buying an RV.

Yep, that's normal. The Strait-Line system will wiggle with the wind, draft etc but the TT always whips back to center. Welcome aboard and...
