Our new 26U

First two night's "shake-down" cruise.
1st morning at Wekiwa Springs State Park, Apopka, FL.
2nd morning sunrise at St. Andrews State Park, Panama City FL.

Places like these and the friendly folks are why we chose this new life-style.

By new one piece roof, you mean they've eliminated the roof "hump" created when they introduced ducted air? Joe

I've bought two trailers from this dealer and find it's probably the best buying experience we have ever had on any RV.

Just purchased a 2018 Flying Cloud in Idaho and that's not the way it is done here. Now I'm wondering if I made a big mistake. Found the trailer we wanted. Agreed on a price. They wanted us to come in the next day to sign "the papers"..........we did (Thought that was the way it was done). Delivery and walk thru scheduled for the end of August (2 weeks later even though the trailer has been sitting on the lot the entire time); partly due to my work schedule (although I could pick it up this weekend), but also was told they wouldn't deliver the RV until my down payment check cleared ALL the banks. I thought that this was a reputable dealer, but now I'm reading that this is not the "norm?" Should I be worried

Nervous in Idaho

The above is from Jack in post 28 of this thread. In a later post (32) Jack responds to a query of who the dealer is. His response is Bill Thomas Camper Sales. I live in the same county as Bill Thomas' and have been looking at AS for several months. Trying to do my homework, reading this forum and trying to educate myself. This is not my first RV purchase, but my first AS purchase.

BLUF (Bottom line up front): Thus far I have been treated very well and with respect by Bill Thomas' and am very happy. I do wish I had the relationship with the dealer that Jack does!

I was talking to my salesperson about the purchase process. He took the time to explain it to me. I then showed him Jack's post from above. My salesperson said everything was true (and basically what he had previously told me), except, I would need to make the purchase BEFORE I spent the night. Any problems would be corrected the next day, if I spent the night Monday thru Thursday or Monday morning if I spent the weekend unless there would be a part required that needed to be ordered.

I would be permitted to do my own separate PDI BEFORE signing the paperwork, if I so choose. I will be so choosing!

Thank you to all who share their experiences on this forum. It is a HUGE help to this wannabe newbie.
