You're going to want a checklist for your pre-delivery inspection (PDI) before you take your new trailer home. Here are a few thoughts to get you started: http://www.casarocinante.com/Blog/Sp...-a-new-trailer

From my experience, dealers have more leeway than that. We ordered the exact same 2018 Serenity as the OP about a month ago and were able to customize a trailer that the dealer had in the pipeline but that hadn't started production. The model and color combo were the only things the dealer couldn't change - we deleting the 2nd A/C and powered awning that were originally ordered and added the awning package and solar.

We pick it up on the 19th and, like the OP, will also be towing it with a Grand Cherokee V8!

Hi

Color combo was the one I had run into before.
