New Freedom Express 320bhds Owner

My family and I recently picked up a 2016 Coachmen Freedom Express 320bhds this past Friday. We were so anxious to go camping, so we called a few campgrounds and was actually able to find a spot even though it was 4th of July weekend. So far we are loving the camper, it was a major upgrade from the 1989 Jayco pop-up we had. I do have a couple of question and concerns for any other Freedom Express owners. First thing was the fold down bunk, some how the bed does not seem long enough for the L-brackets and one side of the brackets is sagging almost like someone too big was up there while at the dealership; unfortunately we did not catch that during the walk through. The other concern is we had the fold-out futons out and when we folded them back there was a big water spot on the bottom but we could not find water anywhere. I plan on calling the dealer this morning but wanted to get feedback as well. I appreciate any feedback.

If you have a skylight in the rear bunk room leaving it open will allow water to come in & soak the carpet in the center of the bunk room... If you laid the futon on top of the carpet, it could have soaked-up the wetness...

I purposefully looked at new & used TT's during heavy rains & noticed that dealers/customers didn't close windows/skylights during rains so the carpet/beds got wet... Also, even new TT's had leaks around the seals whereas our used TT was bone-dry. One new TT was leaking badly & none of the sales persons could find the source. They put a work order in right-away but probably sold it before anything was truly fixed...

IMO you can never spend too much time inside the TT BEFORE you drive it off the lot. I spent 3 hours checking out our TT before the PDI & 2.5 hours during the PDI. Drove-away feeling pretty confident & 15 months later we have not had a single issue...
