I don't get it. One would think they could prep the trailer in a day.

Here's my guess:

he gets paid by Airstream to do a final check-up and repair so he schedules that. if he find a problem, he may need to order parts.

So if he does this work and gets done early, he's a hero. Of course, if he doesn't meet the date, he is a schmuck.

Like I say, just a guess...

Seems like a good guess - it would be nice if they work out any obvious kinks before we drive over there and stay overnight.

For folks that find issues overnight - is it crazy to assume their service department could fix any issues on that next day - I guess if parts are needed though them it will be a delay...

Guess it will be impossible to know

ok, so dealer wants to charge me 5 hours time for propride install at $115 per hour. Nearly 600 bucks. That would leave me with a 350 dollar discount on the propride...

OR, i could do the install myself and keep the 600 bucks....

I will speak with Sean about this tomorrow, but wanted yall's input.

Also, perhaps in that area, I can find someone else to do the install for cheaper - ill look into that as an option as well.

Sean said do self install and he will make sure to be available via cell for any questions I have - also will familiarize myself with instructions and all tools needed - I have a floor jack and other tools so I think I'll be good.

The install of the ProPride is very easy. No drilling or welding, you install the major elements of truck drop bar, w.d. jacks, yoke (to support hitch head), and hitch head in order. There are many on-line videos available. You need some big wrenches (up to 250# torque as I recall) and a floor jack is handy to lift the heavy hitch head in place.

They are bidding really high because they have never done one, and probably not a Hensley either.

Take Sean's advice on the size of weight distribution bars. Some have not and have trouble getting full weight distribution.
