Happy Camper - new to me

I've been at Bill Thomas (in St. Louis) for several days "moving in" to my new one, and I'm pleased to pass along the following observations:

1) general "fit & finish" is greatly improved over that of my previous trailers

2) very few little "flaws" due to carelessness at the factory

3) wiring and plumbing more "professionally" organized

Finally, (and most impressive to me), is that it didn't leak so much as a DROP of water after being exposed to a torrential downpour, which continued for an agonizingly long period of time!

So, let's hear it for the factory!! We're off to a great start this time!!

Noticing more improvements:

5) skylight cover now installed without those troublesome screws

6) better trim around interior perimeter of shower door

7) better quality laminate on dinette and galley surfaces

8) looks like rubber window seals are more substantial

That is very good to hear. Seems they've gotten those chimps with power drills off the roofs.
