SolAire 318TSBHK - New to RVing

Hi everyone!

I finally have stopped lurking and have actually purchased, and will take delivery of a Palomino SolAire 318TSBHK Eclipse Package.

We are first time RV owners and look forward to the fun and the challenge that comes with it! I'm sure we'll be leaning on the more experienced folks to answer questions as they arise.

As for any 318TSBHK owners... any particular problems, issues, etc... that have arisen? Any upgrades, or DIY projects?

Thanks again!

Woot Woot! Welcome and congrats. That's a sweet rig!

We have had limited (expected) minor issues with our 317.

What are you pulling that monster with?

I also have the 317BHSK..DONT trust the automatic dump feature of the care free awning...other than the awning issue, we have loved it. We will be parking ours at our seasonal lake spot this Saturday...

Looking forward to spending about every weekend on the lake with my girls.

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your Palomino SolAire 318TSBHK. We have a saying around here, 'Pics or it didn't happen' so post some when you get it.

We are pulling it with the a 2011 Expy EL KR.

I will send pics once I pick it up next Saturday. The kids will be surprised, as they have continue talking about us having one ever since we rented one to figure out if that's what we wanted to do.

Welcome to the Forum!

When you pick up your unit do a thorough PDI inspection with your and the dealer are the final step of the Quality Control Process.

Our issues were all little things....we love love our Solaire!

Happy Camping!
