Where is the dealer at Tim?

As Roy said, Pictures....we need pictures! Picture are neat and mandatory!

Where you going for a maiden voyage? Icicle River, Winthrop area along the Methow or the nearby State Park & Lake, North Cascades Park - Ross Lake....Come on now...we snoopy gossipy neighbors have an absolute right to know!

Could be he had to come all the way down to Bend to pick it up or got lost in the mountains with their new camper on the way home OR both! I can think of a lot of places just to the West of Bend to get "lost" and a lot of places between Bend and Chelan to get lost.

Good morning Oregon and everyone everywhere else. We're up to 44. I was getting a little worried. Don't want to freeze the new boat motor.

Good evening Ford Fans.
Installed a new catalytic convertor on the Old Ford today and that seems to have tamed the exhaust note a lot.

Hi guys,

Yesterday didn't go as good as it could have. I not sure that the dealer even looked at the camper before we got there! Long story short we spend most of the day fixing things mostly little things but stuff that should have been done before we got there.

Two big things well really three, the camper doesn't fit our truck! The tail lights hit the back of the camper before the front bumpers hit the front of the truck bed. Then the gray water drain had to be modified because it was going to hit the rear bumper.
The backup camera quit working after maybe 5 minutes.
And the third big thing is we ordered and payed for a large escape hatch 26" x 38" it came with a small one 16" x 26"

Anyway it's a nice camper but after all day messing with little things and we just kept finding things that were different then we ordered and not as nice as the one we looked at. It's just been a little hard getting excited about it.

Good evening Tim and those to follow.
Tim I'm not sure I would be all that pleasant to deal with spending that kind of money and not being happy with what I got. Renee well she would let the dealer know exactly what was on her mind and what she thought about it.


Dadburnit the new catalytic converter took all the growl out of the Old Ford.

Good evening Oregon and everyone everywhere else.

Maybe the old Ford needed some of the growl taken out of it Chris....might be easier on your back without it growling at you all the time.


That camper looks really nice Tim. It looks like you have the exact same radio / stereo that came in ours. Carpet trim looks really close as well.

So sorry not everything went smoothly and was not as you ordered it. I wonder how much of that is dealer as opposed to manufacturer. With the price tags on these campers being what it is, I'm afraid we may have refused delivery if there had been those problems. Especially the escape hatch, which is something that can't be fixed by the dealer.


Two big things well really three, the camper doesn't fit our truck! The tail lights hit the back of the camper before the front bumpers hit the front of the truck bed. Then the gray water drain had to be modified because it was going to hit the rear bumper.
Since they make these in both SB and LB versions, it makes me wonder if they didn't send you the Short Box version.....???

Have you talked to the factory rep yet?
