Just purchased our 30 ft so classic. We have 2 big dogs so the floor space is appreciated. Just taking our first trip to Utah.

Pappy,
That's about what we paid for our synthetic installed on the diagonal about eight years ago. Sounds good. Enjoy.

rasjad,

Welcome to Airforums. More experience here that we'll ever know. I think the S/O is a special model you'll get more questions about it than you imagined. Folks will want pictures and we'll ask for model specifics so be prepared.

Now, how about the year info?

Gary

Would be really nice for us that don't know would be some in progress pictures of what is under the slide, and how the carpet is removed from under there.

You'll discover a slide is the best way to accommodate large dogs and 'streaming. My two Danes are both over 150lbs each and they sleep together on the living room floor - a feat not possible in a standard.

Enjoy Utah!

In answer to GCinSC2's question - we have a 2007 30' with S/O. We purchased it in Jan right before I retired. I've done a bunch of "upgrades" already - they include:

- Switched to all LED lights
- Installed 4 Lifeline batteries and a Magnum Inverter (I plan to install solar this summer)
- Installed a GPS "anti-theft" system/alarm (I posted something on that about a month ago).
- Installed a back view camera (I like to know what's behind me when I'm driving/parking)
- Installed a separate GPS tracker so I could create "maps" of our trips using Google Maps (see attachment).

This summer I plan to:
- Install solar (as above)
- Build a cover for the AS
- remove the carpet and install a different flooring material (why did AS think putting a pale yellow carpet right by the entrance was a good idea?!?)

Who ever said retirement was boring?

Rasjad,

Haven't found out if retirement is boring, hope to someday.

If this has not been covered by your getting to know your trailer, several things worth checking. If you've been there done that, just post the pic of the T shirt.

Brake actuator, AS did a recall but if you still have the grey plastic housing Actibrake, it needs a close eye or just scrap it.

Brake hoses, again an AS recall to R&R with longer ones that don't kink.

Found this about my 2007. But here's one that might scratch your head, what is the axle rating of YOUR trailers axles? Not any nameplate data stuff, crawl under get the AS P/N and check that # in your parts manual for its ratings. I bet your nameplate says 5,000 Lb/Axle. What is the axle rating? If you need further advice on this let me know.

15's vs. 16's too many threads but all show concern on heavier tandems and 15" ST's.

Almost all of my efforts have been running gear issues but those 4 piston disc brakes are strong and smooth.

Slides are cool.

Gary

I will definitely check out those things. We purchased it from a dealer and they gave us a 1 year warranty so if there are any repairs I'm sure they will cover it.

I just purchased four 15" ST tires a month ago. I think I'll run them for now.

We have an '02 and I'm wondering how long it will be before I will need the ZipDee replaced on my slide. Anyone have a similar replacement?

I guess how long the awning lasts is based on how it gets treated. The slide awning does contact the top edge of the slide unit so you do have a friction point there. I haven't looked carefully at that point of contact on my '04.

I have had the loop on the slide awning pull strap tear so I can't use the hook to pull it out. For all intents that long strap loop would be important if you want to open the awning prior to the slide extending. In my case I always open the slide first prior to pulling the awning out. Extending the slide partially unrolls the awning which allows the strap to be reached by hand.

We had to replace the slide awning on our '08, but only because it sat out in the sun, and under a tree for five years before we bought it. That should give you some idea how long it will last. It would have been OK if not for the tree stuff that wouldn't come off.

We have had 2-a 2001 and a 2004 Lounge slide out and they are great. They are used more for destination camping. 3 months in Fl every winter is perfect for a 34-slide. It seems like twice the room of a regular 34.

I like the ones with the lounge slide and the fireplace in the front.
I wish they would make them again.
