2016 36REQS On order as of yesterday

We finally pulled the trigger and ordered a new 2016 Pinnacle 36REQS. Now the waiting starts. I really don't want to load up our existing camper with all of our stuff, but we have a trip planned before the new one will be here. I guess I didn't think of all the stress the DW will be under during the waiting period.

Now she wants to postpone our trip. I say lets load it up and when the new one comes in just transfer everything over at that time. The people at the sales office helped us last time, I'm sure they will again. That's what keeps you coming back, customer service.

Also there are a lot of changes for the 2016 that are now included that were options in the 2015. A few colors are gone now as well.

Speaking from experience, and as a woman, it really isn't quite as simple as 'transferring everything over at one time'. It's an awful lot of work, you have no idea of the 'stuff' that is in your rig. We also had to do it in a hurry as someone wanted our old rig, right away and the new one wasn't quite ready so we had to move all the stuff out into a temporary rig on the lot. It was a horrible experience. If you can take your time, I strongly advise it. It made me somewhat cranky. LOL.

Having just emptied mine to sell it, I will second what you said. It's amazing how much stuff there was that is presently clogging up my garage! I spent several hours this morning just sorting things, organization wise so when our new trailer is ready, we'll have an easier time refilling.

Well we went on and pulled all the old stuff out of ours as we were going to trade it in and cleaned the inside and basement storage..... Then it was time to purge all that stuff that had accumulated over almost 12 years and it was a lot...then buying new stuff because some of the old didnt match the new decor, an
D then trying to figure out where to put all the stuff in our new one. It was a job better done over several days period ... Luckily we had everything sorted and ready to go when the new one came in

When we traded up to the 5er we did it at the dealer. They pulled the 2 units side by side and even helped with the move. I guess some problems were that we didn't get to wipe stuff down before putting dishes and such away. I will bring our current unit home and clean it out a week before and then we will properly clean the new one before loading. Thanks for the comments.

Congrats on your new order. We just brought our 2015 REQS home on Friday, so the loading is all done. We sold our last 5'r last May, so all our belonging where packed in the garage. We had that unit 10 years, so we did replace most of the kitchen ware with new, nice treat for us. We also dropped all the kids stuff off, so that made a huge difference too. I found with this unit being a bit bigger than the last, I'm trying to only load what is necessary, just to keep the weight down for hauling. Well hope the wait doesn't kill you...lol...its a very nice unit. Cheers.

I think the wait is killing me already and it's only been a week. LOL
I just saw the pictures of yours. It looks great. My truck should pull it without much of an issue as soon as Ford can figure out what the issue is. It's been at the shop more than I've had it.
Enjoy the new camper....
