On my purchase order it says by 7/1 but salesman said it will be finished by end of May and they have to leave an extra cushion for delivery. Hoping to actually have it mid-June.
I don't think those items are super important. FYI, this is my first TT too so this is all just going by what I have read. We camp in the desert occasionally and temps can get over 100 degrees so I feel that for $142 extra the upgraded A/C was well worth it.
I have read mixed reviews on enclosing the underbelly. People say it helps with aerodynamics and keeping trailer a bit warmer in really cold weather. I want to keep our options open for camping in the cold so we went for it. Some on this forum have said they prefer not getting that so that they have easy access for repairs. May deter rodents too but if rodents get in harder to get them out.
I felt the suspension kit was important. If you have seen that trailer in person it sits really low to ground. I could see that easily scraping the back going up driveways etc. Will not raise axle, only box off of axle.
Dealer where I am purchasing called me a couple of days after I placed my order. They have one on the lot as well without the above options. Sticker price of $22,995 here in SoCal (higher because of delivery charges then some other parts of country.) They wanted to offer me a deal on the one on the lot. I'm sure they want to get rid of it since model year has come to a close. I could swear he originally said $18,995 then in next sentence he said $19,995. Anyways, if you don't think the options are necessary in your case then you might be able to negotiate a great deal on the one on the lot.
