Look on the roof and check your chaulking. They say they do that for you but if it has an issue it will be your dime to fix it. Make sure you try all the appliances so you know how they work. Our first trip we were looking for stuff to turn on and had trouble remembering where it was. If stuff doesn't look right get it checked before you sign the paper. We have had some warranty stuff done at Travelland and I have not been impressed with the work that was done. When you go on your first trip take a note pad as you may have some issues with the trailer that need to get fixed.

I personally would not feel to comfortable crawling around on the roof of a brand new trailer before pulling out of the lot. Just me. It comes with a warranty. If I did not feel comfortable with it then I may have the wrong manufacturer or dealer. I have purchased 2 new rigs.

I do feel comfortable doing roof inspections on a regular basis in my yard. A good roof inspection may take at least an hour of inspecting every caulk seam and roof opening looking for cracks and roof damage.

My roof had a couple of wrinkles near my bathroom skylight and it took a couple of visits to get it repaired. As far as caulking just make sure everthing is covered up like it should be. You will be able to tell just by comparing what is up there, they should have a ladder to look from the edges.

Any tips/help is always apprecitaed.

Cheers and thanks.
If you read any manufacturers brochure and even their web sites they all state that their may be changes in the final product as a part of continuing product improvement.

CREWMANIACS-- Be sure they give you a battery so the brakeaway switch will work god forbid you need it. Don't let them give you any crap about it either, they made enough money. Larry

During the purchase of the trailer, I worked into the deal 2 6V batteries and a WDH hitch installed etc. I'm good to go I hope.

The first time you take it out open all of the windows and doors and turn on the furnace and let it run for about a half hour to burn off all of the oils on the ductwork. We didn't know this and the first time our heat came on we almost got stunk out. It's been fine ever since we left it on for this burn in.

Make sure they show you how to winterize your trailer. Our dealer holds a winterizing session every year for free and covers what to do. Make sure you take notes with this because you will have to de-winterize in the spring.
