Welcome RPegram. We have the same unit and love it. We traveled over 7000 miles last summer to visit family and take on some sight seeing tours along the way. When we bought our unit we had a few wants in mind. We had traded in a PUP so we wanted the open feel. We wanted a large window, u shaped dinette, an oven, a tub shower and a walk around bed. This unit fit the bill without having the longer length. I am anxious to hear how you put in a door to the bedroom.

I hope you enjoy it and love it as much as we have.

Take care.

Mary Anne

My wife and I are picking up our new 2012 26RLS at 9 am tomorrow morning! Only problem is that we are taking it to the storage yard soon as we get it, although the way the weather has been here, we may be able to take it out one of these weekends. Looking forward to alot of fun times in it!

Well, it's been a while and we've used the camper a couple of times now. Most is going well. Sadly, the microwave and stove both were DOA. I'm a little upset the dealer didn't catch these two things. Other than these, we've had a blast in the unit. The space is unreal. That deep slide makes it feel like a double wide mobile home. I added a 4" memory foam mattress topper from WallyWorld, and wow, that thing sleeps good. I don't think I've ever seen a fridge keep things so cold, have to keep it turned down to 3 so bottles of water don't freeze. The TT tows easy and can't really see much of a drop in fuel mileage. I tow with a 3500 Dodge diesel, so wasn't worried of TV handling the trailer. Our previous TT had almost no outside storage, so this was great with this one. One of our first family outings I actually had empty bed space in truck. Our last trip, the temps were great and all those windows really came in handy and trailer stayed nice all day with the breeze blowing through. I try and add a couple of pics of the trailer set up and the DW and DD finishing a nice dinner one evening.

Nice looking unit! Agree that the dealer should have tested and found the stove and microwave issues.

I'd be more than a little upset. If you look at the factory invoice, you paid several hundred dollars for dealer prep, probably close to $500. I have never had our dealer not check out everything to be sure it was working before we took delivery.

Sounds like you got them fixed, so now enjoy.

My DS got a tent for his very first birthday. He's 18 now. Boy, it goes fast!

We just got home form taking our 26RLS out for the second time. We added a foam topper to the mattress and it is quite comfy. I agree with you about the fridge. Very cold, turned it down to 3. Went to dump the black tank today and the screw that holds the clamp that the T handle goes thru snapped right off. No big deal, more of an aggravation. Not going out for 3 weeks so will fix it soon. So far, love the new trailer.
