VERY NICE!! I am so dang jealous right now!!!
Have you been up on the roof yet to see if it has eternabond tape on all the seams and around the vents and such? I had read somebody said that FR was installing it at factory now?

Is everything good with it so far?
Man I am green with envy!!

It is a really nice camper, lots of storage, nice layout, first night at KOA Lion Country in Loxahatchee, Florida. We are about two hours from home and an hour from the dealer, Tropical RV @ Ft. Pierce. I saw the post on the Eternabond that you are referring to but no, no eternabond on the roof. I guess I will do it myself.

So far all is working well (knock on wood x3), the new Equalizer hitch worked really well along with the Prodigy P2 brake controller. No sway at all and easy stopping.

I'll post interior pics tomorrow.

threegr8katz (Kip) I owe you the dimensions you wanted, should be able to post those tomorrow too.

Great pictures...thanks for sharing.

A couple of questions. Did you order a lift kit with your camper...it appears to be higher than I would have thought. Is it a 3 step entry? Also looks like you replaced the factory rear stabilizers with scissors jacks?

You're welcome! Nope, no lift kit and only two (fold-out) steps. However you are right it does sit pretty high. And to my surprise it came with scissor jacks all around. Should I complain?
