Much thanks Bob! I always try and have a plan. Anyways enough about me! The camper! I went yesterday and brought the truck up to pick it up. Well their service tech decided to leave early so they could inspect it again and reliever it.

I was really upset. If this happened at Acura the lot tech would have 2 choices. Get their butt and back to work or get fired. They defiantly knew I was angry about not getting my purchase and gave me a $250 gift card to their store. And they'll deliver the camper to my door and teach me how to use it at home on Wednesday.

So all in all I guess things went good but not 100% how I wanted them to go.

At least they are trying to make good on their mistake. That $250 gift card will go a long ways, and then some, toward getting all the essential supplies like water hose, and sewer hose, and holding tank chemicals, and wheel chocks, and leveling blocks, and.......the list goes on and on.

Right because as it turns out they don't give starter kits or anything, which sucks. I went out last night and bought

-50 feet 10 gauge extension cord (20 amp) which can hook into my garage at home.
-100 feet Coaxial cable because you gotta have cable tv when your "camping" hahaha.

Still need:

-hitch lock
-wheel chocks
-bedding
-chairs
-outside rug
-sewer/freshwater hoses
-pressure regulator
-multimeter to test campground hook ups.

And don't forget the absolute necessities like tacky awning lights, lighted fake palm trees, and cheesy plastic pink flamingos.

Ya' think we all may read about Corey in Forbes in a few years? Hopefully he'll take over Camping World!
@Corey - did you get your new toy yet?

No, they are delivering it to my doorstep at 9am tomorrow and doing my walk through at my house because their service/lot tech(s) decided to leave early. Tomorrow morning you should see many pictures.

I just had to order a new set the other day. Our old ones are in need of "hip replacements". The little clip that holds the legs broke on one of them. I got the new ones through Amazon.com. This new set is the original Don Featherstone design, which is produced by Union Products, who have the original mold. Cado Company now owns Union Products. Accept no imitations. The Featherstone flamingos will actually have the Featherstone signature molded on their butts. Yes, I take my tacky flamingos seriously.
