If I have learned one thing from this thread, it is to stay the night at the RV dealer's facility for 1 to 2 nights after my coach comes in.
Joshua,
I wouldn't do that.
You need to TOW the unit, drive on regular not perfect roads, make a few turns and brakes so that everything can shake, rattle (and hum) inside. Then you'll know just how well everything was screwed, built etc...

Find a park near the dealer so you can pick up on Friday and IF needed bring back for repairs Monday morning!
A video camera is a great idea!

I suspect ...

that some of the cuts in the flooring are the result of the floor laid first and the furniture (walls, etc) brought in later.

All furniture is built outside the unit and brought in through the door. Some parts are quite large and awkward to handle. It doesn't take much of a scrape by a sharp corner to cut the flooring. I notice that many cuts are at/near the doorway.

Kimili,

I think you make an excellent point. I think I will spend 1 night at the dealer and then do some various driving as you suggest and stay within the vicinity over the weekend.

Thanks again for the tip.

Josh

Staying at an RV park near the dealer is exactly our plan.

Hopefully we will pick up the new AS in mid-January. There are 2 RV parks near the dealership. Petunia and I plan on taking a video camera for the walk through and our own inspection.

I am concerned about the QC issues ... but not worried. If the trailer does not pass our initial inspection it will stay with the dealer until things are right. I'm sure something will pop up after we take delivery .. but hopefully they will be small items.

I wish January would get here!

Ok Here are my Two Additional Items thus far on my Safari:

1. Did not get the remote for the Sony XM/FM/CD Stereo (It says right on the Unit "Sony <MOdel> With Remote> Luckily the remote for my sony in my Jeep does work with it.

2. I appear to be missing the cover for the three burner stove. You know the one that flips over the metal grills so you can use it as counter space. Was this an option? Every AS I have seen has one...

I've seen a cutting board over the sink in many pictures. Ours didn't come with one. Has anybody received one with their unit?

Porky,

Where are you purchasing your unit from?

Josh

We didn't get one but I don't see it on the list. Nor do we have covers for the sink and I was not able to find one.

Anyone has pics of these two items?
...anyone got them with their 25'CCD??

Jodynjeep,
at first we thought we were missing the remote too. Then we found it in the big AS binder that the dealer gave us, stuck with tape to the Sony warranty, mixed in with all the other warranties in the binder. Maybe yours hiding in there too...

thanks
