Yep one light and one fan light with the HW 277 as well. Have been wanting to order additional fanlight so we have one for each bunk end and can then use the light over the dining area.

Same for me man. I figured either someone swiped it at the dealership or it wasn't thrown into mine. Seems odd that we only get 1. I thought we'd get 2 fan/lights and one light for the table.

On another note, had my first night in the camper when it was poring down rain and thundering. Scared me at first but now it's nothing. This roof diffuses rain sound very nicely! Can't say the same for the canvas but you can't have it all :-)

Same here.

New issue though. My roof looks like it's bowing in like something heavy is pushing down on it. It's enough for water to accumulate in it.

I feet like I have a defective roof, but before I talk warrantee repair with the factory I wanted to consult with everyone here. A new roof would mean reinstalling everything on it and I bet it would be done half butt. Leaks and everything like that.

I wouldn't let them touch it as long as it isn't leaking.You most likely end up with worse problems. sounds like you allready know that

I have noticed the longer the pup the more the roof sags. So long as it does not leak I think you are ok. Can you snap a picture?

I thought about this. "Swipe" is the operative word, here.
Is the dealership your family's, or someone else's? The depreciation caused by turning new inventory into a demo is huge.
Does the owner know about this? I'd have a pink piece of paper for you if it was my dealership. Just a warning...

I believe he said he works at an Acura dealership, so I'm sure any truck would be on the used lot.

Lol! Yes. I already talked to the GM. He doesn't care. It's an 08 Silverado Diesel. About 88,000 miles on it. 100 miles aren't going to kill the value of it, won't even effect it. Some of the Acura's I've sold have had 350 - 500 miles on them. Still count as new. Those miles are accumulated by test drives and dealer trades, old men drive them to and from other dealerships so they aren't driven harshly.
