Deposit on First Trailer E-pro15TB

I just put a deposit on a 15TB at Stolzfus RV in Adamstown. I'm getting pretty excited to be able to actually see it when it arrives in April (I hope). Been researching the heck out of it and trying to learn as much as I can about it. The size will be right, I think, for my 2015 Ford Flex. I'll be travelling solo. I've been wondering about a few things and would like to get some questions answered. So I signed up for the forum. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Make sure to do a good PDI when you go to pick up your new unit. Later RJD

Welcome from NJ! We also bought our camper from Stoltzfus in Adamstown, and were very pleased with the dealer. We got it for a good price, they didn’t try to push any extras on us, and provided a very thorough walkthrough.

Yeah..my sales guy is Lee. Are we supposed to do these PDI's at the dealer? I had to search what PDI meant and I found a checklist that is supposed to take 3 to 4 hours right here:

We spent about 1 1/2 hours going over everything. You want to make sure everything is working correctly and there are no issues. The dealer is supposed to check everything, but you need to double check.

I did climb the ladder and check the roof. No an inch by inch inspection, but making sure everything is intact.

Ditto...^^^ Read up on everything to check Before you go to pick up your unit. Write down a lot of questions. This way you will/should know what everything does and not does... This way you can ask relevant questions and know if you are getting good answers or BS. Ask and be shown how and what tools you will need to change any flat tires. There are many things to go over, have as much knowledge about them before you pick up your unit.

When we bought ours the only slightly disappointing thing was it took a little longer to get delivered than anticipated. Not the dealers fault at all, I’m just mentioning it in the event yours doesn’t come in exactly when expected. Have patience, April is still a tad early to use it anyway!

I just checked out their website and see the sales person we had in 2017 is still there. The place seems to have low turnover in their staff, which is a good thing.

Let us know how it goes, camping season will be here before you know it!

You could have downloaded a PDI/walk-through checklist from our Forum Library.
