Well here we go...new Spartan 1245 in the stall

Picked up our 17 Spartan 1245 today. We've spent 6+ months researching, looking, shopping, cussing and discussing, and finally went with this one.

Our salesman Ben at FunTown RV in Wharton (just outside of Houston) was great. Can't say as much about the PDI folks...found several minor issues...but Ben was a straight up guy and even pointed some of the issues out that he could have just let slip by without saying a word and we would have been none the wiser...

Looking forward to our first trial run to Galveston in 10 days and then a boondocking trip to Sam Rayburn for Labor Day!

If possible spend your first nite in your driveway or at a CG real close. Your purpose is to check everything out completely and thoroughly. You will find 'stuff' that needs to be addressed.
Enjoy!

Welcome! Sound advice about camping somewhere close to home or in the driveway (if allowed to).

Welcome from Oregon. Should come here sometime. Good advice, camp close to home first, maybe second time also.

We have a 2016 Spartan 1032 and love it. First thing I did when I got it home was tighten all screws inside and out. Only found a couple of them stripped. Last year we camped in it around 42 days. The only problem we had the first trip, the shower drain leaked a little. We tighten the coupler and all is good.

Can anyone give me the garage width (wall to wall)? We've been looking at the PT 1032 and 3210 but need to to see how I can fit a Raptor 700R and a Quadsport Z400 in there.

Looks like it may be a 3210. The PT website doesn't show the 1032 listed now. We both really like the floor plan.
