Yes we did, and also upgraded to the residential sofa. (Luck of the draw, as we purchased off the lot) They had to transport ours from Phoenix to Albuquerque. Although we have not gone on a trip, we have spent time in it loading it up. Looking good so far!! Keep in touch with your experiences.

Ours has the elite package, and the frameless windows, this is the perfect Rv for our needs, the only problem we have found was the water heater bypass valve was open, other than that a well built unit

Glad to hear that you like your new 22qbs. What are you towing it with and what kind of wdh are you using? We are upgrading from a 2011 surveyor sport 189. It is a good unit, and had no major problems , but the DW wanted a walk a round bed, and I wanted a unit that I could still pull without changing TV. Expecting from factory in late march. The waiting is the hardest part.

My tv is a 2012 GMC Sierra with the 5.3, tows really well, using the Reese wd hitch with the dual cam sway control! Upgraded from a Jayco 23fb, wanted the slide, and fiberglass sides, much easier to keep clean. Getting about 11mpg towing, real happy bout that!

I'm going with the Equal-I-zer 4point wdh. I had a Husky wdh with a add on sway controller. I am getting 11 to 13 mpg with the surveyor. Expect it to go down some due to the increase in frontal area. Happy camping, stay in touch, and let me know of any abnomalities with your new unit.

Only hiccup so far has been a television with incorrect cable routing. I had to take off the wall plate and reconnect properly, probably a dealer issue!

We too purchased a 2013 Apex 268Bhs and pick it up at the end of the month. We are first time TT owners and have learned lots from the futon so far. We will send an update after pick up.

Do the Apexes have black tank flushes? I'm interested in the 214rb, 215rbk, and freedom express 233rbs. I can't seem to find anything regarding a black tank flush on these models. It seems to me that this would be an important feature, but I am a newbie at this.

We just bought a 233RBS and pick it up tomorrow. No where in the documentation does it mention a built in black tank flush. To me though, it isn't a show stopper. I've always been able to adequately clean out my black tank with out built in flushers. One key for me is to not leave the valve open while using it. I let both the gray and black tanks accumulate some liquids before I dump them.

If it doesn't, they're easy to add.
