We took delivery sight unseen from the factory on December 22nd. Unit arrived exactly as we had ordered it - 2015 - 30' FC with rear queen, two A/C, 1,000 W Inverter, two up front recliners, stove and oven with reg micro wave, 16' wheels and tires. Might be some others but I've forgotten. Dealership spent a day and a half going over every item, every appliance and every workable part, drained and winterized and we picked her up. They spent a long time going over the unit with us, even though this is our third.

The mechanics found nothing out of place and nothing wrong with the unit, all fittings were fine, all appliances worked etc. This, despite forum posts to the contrary, has been our history with our first new AS and one used one, our first. I think a tremendous amount has to do with the dealer and their technicians, as well as quality control at AS, which to me appears to be at a higher standard than others in the industry. Not to say some things may be wrong - these are made by people and people make mistakes, (I'e run factories in my work life and experienced mistakes daily).

In sum, we are very pleased with AS and the product produced and shipped, which I guess is obvious as it's our third and have had others in between which we were NOT pleased with.

Best of luck and ENJOY

You would not be the first to change homes to better accommodate your airstream lifestyle.

I am interested in the front hitch set up; not because our driveway is a problem, but because we are planning on building a garage or carport top get the AS out of the heat, weather, and especially - hail! Between a TV with a 169" wheelbase and my inexperience backing, a front hitch sounds like a safer way of jockeying my 27FB into a garage. Any thoughts from those of you that use a front hitch?

It seems, at least in this video, to be a rather simple procedure - simply unbolt the tow hooks, and rebolt with the receiver and longer bolts. Hmmmmm...
