This is what we want, we were sold on a 25RB however, we saw the 26U or RB and were very impressed with the U shape dinette and like the shower and toiler together and not to mention the closet space is bigger on the 26 since Iíll be storing my military uniform there. The cushions got to go, they are truffle and white wants the honey. The backing of the u shape is permanent so itís ok that it is truffle. It has a queen size bed, we are ordering a Organic Pedic bed from OmiMattress to replace the mattress it comes with. Other than that. I have a truck, and looking forward to buying all the extras. I think the last thing is to order a nice white robe and a Russian ski hat for cold mornings and Iím set
Let us know how you do Bythe way, the new mattress with the AS's are pretty darn comfortable...we love ours...you might try it before replacing it..

We thought the included mattresses were just okay. After adding 2" memory foam on top we like them much better.

Well to be honest. My wife is pretty sensitive to smells and things that off gas. So we are going to order one through http://omimattress, thatís where ordered our Organic Pedi mattress for our bedroom. Super comfortable and non toxic mattress without any coils or spring box. Just order the top mattress from one of the brands and weíre set.

This is what we did and it is very comfortable with the added memory foam. Costco is King!

If it's not to late have the dealer replace the batteries. Between sitting at the factory and on the dealers lot those batteries are in poor shape and will not last long before they started giving you problems.

Good call. They had to ship it to Vegas so I can register it. Pain in the butt. Iím stuck in Cali for another week on base. In the meantime Iíll see what I can do for the batteries.

Thank you

You can also typically just take the batteries to Interstate also. I have done this 2 times with my last 2 new trailers, when the Interstate batteries went bad. My friend from CA, who purchased a new 23' last year, was visiting me in MT when his went bad and Interstate in MT replaced with no hassle.

I suggest call your local Interstate dealer if your interested, explain your batteries are bad. They will likely ask you to bring them over so they can charge and test them before they replace them with new ones. First time, I actually got them to give me "full credit" toward an upgrade to AGM's. This past year, they just gave me new Interstate replacement batteries which I took; then sold them immediately on Craigs list and purchased 6V Trojan Golf Cart batteries...my friend did the same. when he got back to CA. No issues with batteries since.
