Its raining Solaire 269BHDSK's

Camping at Summit Lake State Park in east central Indiana and there are two Solaires identical to ours just a few sites down the way. CG is full - 200+ units, but sure didn't expect to see 3 identical units. Especially of this fairly new model.
Dumb camping pole question: whats the max number of units identical to yours (same make and model) that you've seen during one of your trips?

Probably no more than 1 or 2. Matter of fact the last trip was 2200 miles, and I didn't see even 1. I know they're out there, but I guess we don't stay at the same places. Mine has a few touches that sets it apart just a little. Probably one of the few Silverbacks without the bear graphics on the front. Had that removed, just to be different, plus I don't like all the decal crap really.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

We have a Solaire 307. Have never seen one on the road in the two years and 10000 kms we've travelled, but we have neighbours down the street with the same model!

No Sabre fifth wheels yet to be seen during our camping trips...that's a good thing for us, nice to be a little out of the norm

Never came across an identical tt to my old zinger and have yet to see another 34reqs. I have friends that bought twin 19 ft tts and used to share a site, you always felt like you were seeing double when you saw them do that. After a year one of them upgraded to a larger lacrosse tt.

I have the same rig and yet to see a 26 with the slide kitchen. Have seen a 26 same without kitchen.
Any issue with that garage lock on the bumper. Mine worked one time. Then issue not pulling the cable back in.

We haven't used the lock yet. I'll let you know if I run into issues and find a solution.
Enjoying your unit?

Yes enjoying the rig. Went from a hybrid to this camper. A bit heavier than anticipated but the layout works well with our family.
No issues yet with the rig, had the outside protector sprayed on to hold the shine without waxing, glad I had this. Used 6 times this summer with 2 trips remaining

Never seen a Roo 19 (or a Shamrock 19 for that matter), although there's a Roo 21SS about 1-1/2 miles away.

Had an Rpod 182G and now the 269BHDSK Eclipse Pkg and have yet to see another in any of the campgrounds we been yo so far. Mind you we haven't camped but in two provinces. I'm sure that will change next summer.
