Nice floor choice.

You know I'm jealous.

Just got the message that after 15 "work" days have elapsed, our trailer is "released from production" today, 21 January. Now a hotshoter will tow it to Mesa, AZ.

I wanna see

Here is a link to my limited photos of our build process. Clicking on an image will make it larger. I was allowed to take the photos during the scheduled daily tour time since they do not want folks wandering around and getting hurt with all the machinery working or slowing down the build process with questions to the employees.

https://www.dropbox.com/l/P2rWHhhbxDLFX8pjxTjZdc

The trailer started sometime on 30 December until the end of day when the plant closed for the holidays. The plant resumed work on 2 January and that is when my first photos were taken about 2:45pm in the afternoon of the second day of our build process. The plant was closed on Monday, 6 January, due to the winter storm and resumed operation on the 7th. My last few photos were taken on the afternoon of 15 January with the unit outside waiting for three or four missing items.

It was "released from production" on 21 January when the missing parts arrived and were installed.

I am hoping it gets "underway" soon for the 2,025 mile "Mr. Toads wild ride" behind a hotshot trucker to the dealership in Mesa,AZ.

Unit arrived today with internal issues that will have to be corrected properly back at the factory.

Both pocket doors have sliding issues which were caused by the surrounding walls being damaged and warped, rust on the stove cook top, damaged lower front door hinge, ceiling interior material damaged by the entrance door and an external chrome trim piece was not repaired before it left the factory. The kitchen sink cabinet door had a large gouge in it.

There appears to be a common key for all the external access hatches, which is a security concern.

I think you will find that it's been like that for a long time. There aren't that many different key cuts.

Anyway, a crook will just crowbar the door open if it isn't easily opened, so don't leave you wallet in any of them...

That sucks!! Do you think it left the factory in that condition, or perhaps it was mishandled in transport?

Hi from AZ. . . Holy cow, after all this waiting time, what a disappointment for you ! And it sounds like significant problems too, not just the usual punch-list stuff. Sure was hoping to see it at Shady soon ! Good luck with the fixes & fights, Craig

That common key will also work on anyone else's RV.
We traded in a 2009 Forest River Wildwood 28RLSS on our Airstream.
It had the same keys for the storage compartments.

All those problems even after you watched it being built?
Wow!
