2012 Pinnacle REQS

Didn't originally want the full paint, but since it was the last one on the lot, we got it. It's actually growing on me. We bought this so our special needs daughter has plenty of wiggle room in the living room, and we can carry her wheelchair inside.

BTW, the pics are taken at our house where we just recently had a concrete pad poured, and we have 50 amp service from the garage. It's like our own little getaway in the back yard.

Can't wait to take it out with my girls!

Very nice unit.
That's a nice setup you have at the house.
Congratulations on the new Pinnacle

Great looking 5er, the Full Body Paint is Nice.

We looked at a Pinnacle with the Full Body Paint and like it but the floorplan just did not work for us.

Nice, nice, very nice!!

After a year of our Pinnacle being outside, I'm wishing I had spent the extra big $s for full paint as the edges of the decals on the street side are starting to wrinkle. Street side faces the southern sun all winter at our storage lot. I suppose I should get a cover but with the midwest winds howling often in the winter, I'm afraid of chafing.

However, our Pinnacle is truly a very good rig for the 2 of us. It has only had a couple of minor issues fixed by the dealer: A faulty kitchen drain anti-siphon air valve, and a broken outer range vent closure clip. Both replaced as warranty work.

Enjoy yours as much as we do ours!!

So far our Decals have been holding up pretty good after being Fulltime about a year and a half, and towing about 10k miles.

Sure hope they continue to hold up well.

The Full Body Paint is an expensive option and adds several hundred pounds (yes paint is heavy) but it sure is nice.
Maybe next time we will get the Full Body Paint.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I didn't realize the paint weighed that much. Also we had quite the list of minor warranty issues once we got it home and went over it with a fine tooth comb.

It takes a lot of Paint to cover a Pinnacle !!!
