Spoke to my dealer today. He assured me the wind noise will be fixed(without duct tape). I will be the judge of that. If it will be as he says it will be, it will be in my driveway on Saturday. Stay tuned folks and thanks for you wise and friendly counsel.

All of the Precepts have 60"x80" queen beds. That is the same size as a residential queen bed. One oddity is that the corners on the foot end are rounded rather than square in the 31UL. Not sure it it's that way in the other sizes but I suspect it is. It doesn't really subtract much usable space from the bed but I wondered why it was designed that way.

This is a thread on iRV2.com that will help with the size of the bed in the 31 UL.
The rounded corners really help with getting around the end of the bed. The space is rather limited as you may know.....lol
The excitement builds and you'll be on the next chapter of your journey.
Keep the dealer's feet to the fire on any "problems". Once he has your money, you become a second cousin to his long lost cousin.
Enjoy

Just got back from the dealer. He did, indeed, fix the wind noise issue. There was a small defect in the black rubber windshield molding that surrounds the windshield. The defect was half way up on the driver side and was less than an inch in length. Interestingly, the "whistling" noise was at the upper portion of the windshield on the passenger side. The wind must have been shooting up through that piece of molding and exiting on the other side. Wierd!! At any rate, I'm a happy camper, well, I will be tomorrow morning when I pick up that bad boy. Walk through scheduled at 10am. Daughter and son-in-law coming in for the weekend so our maiden voyage will have to wait a couple weeks. Thanks again to all of you for your input. See you out there!!

She's sitting in my driveway folks. 2015 31UL. Now I hope none of the neighbors complain. There's an ordinance against rv's and boats in our town but they only enforce it if someone complains. There are a few boats on our street so I think we'll be ok. I'll try to figure out how to post photos and share some. I'm not too good at stuff like that. Happy trails.
Chuck

I told my dealer that they need to address this issue before we pick it up Saturday. Thanks to anyone for advice. I am enjoying reading your comments in the forum and I plan on being a regular.
Chuck,

I have a 2014 Precept 31UL and have mine at the dealer right now checking it out to see if they can find out where or why the wind is wistling in the front windshild. It seems that is coming from the upper front portion of the windshild and it is very noticable. It may be something they can find easily enough and I sure hope so.

Other than that we love it and everything else is working great and is very comfortable and easier to drive than my older and longer Class A......
