Deposit on 2017 Octane T32C
Just put a deposit on a 2017 Octane T32C via RV Express on April 8, 2016. As of this date, the customary 2017 price increase was not in play so my order was the 2016 price. I went gen-less because I have (2) new Yamaha Inverter 2000 watt Gens which I will pair up. The unit will come with gen prep so I can add a gen later or for possible future resale. I went with the standard 13.5K A/C and 50 amp upgrade which includes 2nd A/C prep. I plan on installing a second Coleman 11K A/C for the bedroom which should keep the amp draw to a minimum. I also plan on upgrading the wheels and tires to 17.5 6K lbs. grey steel rims and Sailun S637 tires which may afford for a bit more hauling capacity and absolutely better service life. At about 3300 lbs. cargo capacity, it will be tight because I have a 1600 lbs. John Deere Gator 850D diesel UTV and by the time all gear is added up with full single 40 gallon fuel tank (new for 2017 replacing the 2 fuel cells on the 2016 model), full water tank, full propane, etc. such will leave very little for other items. Regarding the wheel and tire upgrade, I wanted to ask if any axle modifications will be needed to replace the standard 16" wheels to the 17.5s? I'm hoping the axles won't need to be flipped and such because that may determine whether I just decide to upgrade the 16" tires when the time comes.
