Finally picked it up!

We finally picked up our new 25 FB SE LS. It was at the dealer the middle of January, but we left for Florida for the month of Feb. and didn't get it picked up until Wed this week. It's currently in our driveway, but can't stay because of neighborhood restrictions. Unfortunately, we're having rain everyday, so it makes it hard to get it loaded with our "stuff".

One quality issue I noticed right away was the laminate counter that surrounds the cooktop. At the front edge of both sides of the cooktop, about 1/16th" to 1/8th" of laminate has been notched out of the countertop and it was covered over with sealant. The counter base was all there, just the laminate was notched out. It's exactly the same on both sides. The notch is only about 3/4" long (1/16th to 1/8th" wide). Also the outside furnace vent cover does not fit well on the bottom. There's enough space to fit a finger inside. All the trailers on the lot were that way.

Our dealer told us we received a 7 cubic ft refrig. rather than the 6. He said they just started installing those, so that was a big positive for us.

The only thing I would like to do soon is replace that plastic toilet with a china bowl. Has anyone done that with their 2007 Safari?

Once we get a chance to use the trailer, I'll address any quality issues.

Congratulations on the delivery of your new baby. We have looked at the 27 FB, and it is really cool. We have a 25 FB and love the FB floor plan.

tport,

Great new coach! You'll have a fine time in it. There are lots of choices in porcelain RV toilets. It depends on how exotic you want to get. The basics have a pedal flush and water wand, and the more exotic models like the Thetford Aria II are electric flush that require a 12VDC circuit to the back of the unit. Most should fit in your A/S. Check out the Sealand and Tetford web sites for more info on these.
