Greetings!

Hi everyone - just did the PDI on our new Flagstaff 25 DS today. We bought it after building 6 years of memories with our 2 sons and our trusty KZ Frontier with a front bunkhouse. Now that the boys are older and won't be traveling with us much more we wanted to downsize to a model that was more practical for 2 but had room for 4. We are looking forward to pulling about 1500# less! We researched various models over the winter and found the combination of size, weight, features and reputation to be unbeatable.
Didn't find much to complain about today, a minor water leak at the filter, a loose part on a cabinet. I have 2 questions though. The roof has some wrinkling around the vent, skylight and fan openings over the bath. The dealer says this is harmless and normal. Is he correct? Also, I discovered there is nothing holding the kitchen drawers closed. The hardware is obviously of very high quality and there is some friction holding them closed. Is this enough or do I need to add a catch to hold them closed?
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. The drawers in our Georgetown all have catches on them. Don't know how the trailers are built though. I'm sure others here will be along shortly with a better answer.

Enjoy the new rig. Contrats!

Welcome to FRF!

Catches on the drawers in our 5'er. The wrinkling of the rubber roof may or may not be "normal", pics of an example would be helpful.

Thanks for the replys. I didn't have my camera with me at the PDI and we won't be bringing it home for a couple weeks so I won't have any pics for a while. I posted on the Open Roads forum and several responders said it was nothing to worry about. I think I will contact the factory but I expect they will say it is normal to back up the dealer even if it is not.

According to the factory the roof is not glued down and the wrinkling is normal and will not cause any problems. Can't wait to bring it home!
