IIRC there was some discussion here last year about RAINIER.

we opted for the private tour too as we wanted to see the eagle line ... it was interesting to see how the walls were built and on the line how quickly they went from one station to the next.. a little scary to see how fast they worked and built parts... it would take me a year to build one ... so have there been problems with the towmax tires ... I think I have those on my tt

Had Rainers on our Eagle Premier that was shipped in December. They had roughly 3000 miles on them when 2 developed bubbles through the beads while they've sat in the driveway the last 2 months. I bought Goodyear G614s.

I never found a country of origin printed on the Rainers, but they are obviously poor quality.

"improve the bedroom with 2 windows"??? I don't know about the rest of you but I use the bedroom for sleeping and I like to sleep late. Additional windows mean more light comes in at daylight or campground security lights. I can't sleep when lights are shining in my eyes. That just means more windows for me to black out. Our bedroom has a large window at the foot of the bed over the dresser and a smaller window right beside my head in the sleeping position. I have blacked both of them out with heavy black construction paper. Can't see your hand in front of your face in there now! lol
But I sleep real good, and late!

Something i noticed that they have changed was that they added 2 small windows on each side of the bed in the slide out. I think that will be good for a cool night time breeze.

Also... FYI they have changed the TV's to Vizio series E smart TV instead of the Sharp Aquos. They said that the contract was over with Sharp and Vizio got the new contract.

Come on Spring!
We have this model on our short list. (also Montana 3791 RD and Bay Hill 379FL). I think we may need to visit the factory just to set foot in one. Live out side Chicago so it isn't a huge drive. Either the Local dealer or Indiana internet dealer could set it up. May visit a couple Mfgs while we are there. Lots of money so good to understand how how the sausage is made.

They still putting in a 60" TV? Seems Huge. What is the speaker system arrangement?

When do you take delivery?
What is your planned tow vehicle?

I see your original post you have a Dodge DRW. I'm thinking a 1T DRW is the best idea for this model.

Just talked to our salesman today. He said they expect it to be delivered around the 5th or 6th. We went to Thompson's family RV in Davenport IA. Kent Mathews our salesman was great. That would only be a 3 1/2 hour drive or so for you. They dont have any on hand now but I believe that they are getting 3 more that was ordered the same time as ours. We looked at the Montana, they are a dealer for them as well, and the Bay Hill. Once we looked at the Jayco it was all over. We felt the Jayco had a higher quality feel and liked the 2 year warranty.

I just looked they have 3 that are not spoken for yet. I went to the Chicago RV show and they did not have any there said it is a hard floor plan to keep a hold of. Not sure on the speaker placement. I do know there are some in the ceiling. I think there is a center channel and a sub.

Thanks - I will be driving through there on Monday, I may stop in. I have heard the were good to work with. We went to the RV show at the Rosemont a couple weeks ago. Only Illinois dealers there and no FLSA's or Bay Hills.
