We figure we can always make changes later.

Duke the twin beds do have power elevation for the head section. Not shown in the video from Colonial, though when he tilts up the bed to show the storage you can see the power wire at the head end of the bed. The roadside is shown in an up position in the video from Haydocy. Confirmed with Patrick this morning.

Also for those doing the twin beds they are a 'new' size'. I've got a call into the factory about sheets but the curbside is 36x80 and the roadside is 36x78.75. Wider and longer than current twins.

Eagerly looking forward to the end of March...

As I said before, I was not stating a "fact." Just my observation from what I have seen on this forum. I still don't see any mechanism for the tilt, but if I am wrong - which has happened before, or so my Wife says, then everyone that has ordered the twins will be happy. I hope that you have been given the correct info?

As of today, my dealer tells me that my Classic is due for completion on 21 January. So, the date hasn't been moved since early December. I'm taking this as a good sign. I project I've got about 3 full weeks of modifications to do once it's parked. The longer I've waited, the more stuff I've acquired to add to it. The latest is a MagnaSine Hybrid Inverter/Charger (MSH-M). This will allow every 120V outlet to be 120V constantly. Of course, this means four LifeLine 6V batteries, heavy DC wiring, a sub-panel, and on and on. The net-net will be a much slicker electrical system. Since I'm putting in 600W of solar anyway, I decided it made sense to do this all at once. Oh, and I've fabricated an "instrument panel" that'll mount in the wardrobe. One control box instead of stuff spread around. I stained it cherry to complement the wood cabinetry.

BAB if you have the Magnum unit with the Remote really no need for the Trimetric. Between the BlueSky IPN and the ME-RC you will have the same information. Are you running separate battery systems?

I am planning on a short term two separate battery systems set-up. I'm going to keep the stock Interstates for awhile and will use the Trimetric for them. I'm about 90% sure I'll go with the new Lithium's for the main system. I have all the right piece-parts with the new solar and MSH-M inverter/charger. While I get a bit pale thinking about the price for 400W of lithium batteries, I also get pale at the weight of 4 monster 6V Lifelines. It seems to me that the imminent arrival of my trailer and the current availability to go lithium is convincing enough to spend the $ now. I had a Trimetric in my old trailer along with the Blue Sky IPN, and while it was redundant I enjoyed comparing the two devices! You got sharp eyes, Gary!

Wow Barry, you are the man! All your mods continue to amaze me. I am glad that Joel was able to give you some good news. Maybe you will have your unit by the first of Feb. I am still shooting for the first of April. I won't have more than a few days worth of mods to do on mine.

Hi Babs. Look forward to seeing what you are doing for ideas on ours. See you at Aluminia. Sharing a stop with Maggie to open our spot up to another.

Relax Gal if you go to Tampa RV speak to Mike Castro he is best there and his wife (Liz) is Service Manager which helps. I just dropped my unit off today for a few minor warranty issues

@BAB

Barry, have you picked up your trailer? Just wondering if the 21st date held firm.

I spoke with our sales rep this morning and he said ours is scheduled to come off the line on April 22 and we should be able to pick it up at the dealership the first of the following week. I am just wondering how accurate the projections for completions are now that the orders for Classics may have evened out.

Did an email exchange with the dealer on Friday to see what's going on. I have become fatalistic about it....don't think there's anything I can do to speed the process. What my dealer said, "I'm confident it'll be here soon.....when dealing with the factory at this point of the process, no news is good news....if there was a hang-up we would have been informed." So, I think what you've been told sounds exactly right, Page. You and Bob will have weeks and weeks to get excited! At this stage, I just need it to arrive so I can start clearing out my pool house and garage with all the "add-ons" .... the 4 genormous 6V Lifeline batteries showed up on Friday. I now have every single part for the Magnum MSH-M inverter/charger conversion. AND the solar, and the DirecTV Travl'r, and the WiFi Ranger, and about 6 other projects. Best case is that it'll take me 2 weeks to do all the rewiring, installation, etc... I'll post a few photos as soon as SilverLeaf II makes its appearance! Barry
