The 24.1 meets our needs. We can carry our scooter on hitch, whereas with rear slide , we'd have to unload scooter Everytime to put slide out. 🤔

We really like the 24.1. It meets our needs perfectly. They are in short supply in so cal right now. Got a lead on a couple today that are not to far away. Ones in Phoenix and we are going through there tomorrow on are way to a race. We will stop and check it out.

New 24.1

Hello all
We picked up our new Axis 24.1 last week. After a 500 mile trip Iím happy to say I have not been able to find any problems other than a couple of loose screws. After reading about all the quality issues in the RV industry Iím very happy. Thanks everyone for your feed back on my question.

Pitguy,
We picked up our 2018 24.1 Axis a few weeks ago. We only put on a few hundred miles on it due to us being away for a week of so. It was a pleasure to drive it home from the dealers but did notice about a 2-3 inch of play in the steering but I can accept that as of now as it is part of the unit in total. We had a excellent dealership that we used RVOne.com and every was done in a flash. Fantastic Dealership. I think our next adventure will be after the holidays and down south as NY state is about to start the white flak stuff any day now. There is so much to learn about this RUV and all of it's systems. About the only problem I have had difficulty understanding when you plug the coach into your home electric power and with the help of the folks on this site I got it nailed down fine now.
Enjoy your Axis and travel safe.

MB,
I see you are from NJ could I ask about where? We are also new to the site and to having a 24.1 Axis. We live up in NY State in the Hudson Valley outside of Middletown before you cross over into the Sullivan County. We even have a now Town Owned Campground across the road from us. Haven't camped there cause it's easier to just stay at home.
Enjoy your adventure!

Congratulations and welcome to you both.

The play in the steering is "built in" LOL. Its part of the steering geometry of the E-Series (E-350/E-450) chassis the Axis is built on.

The play in steering all but gone on mine with install of a Steering Damper. I opted for the less expensive "Road Master" ($300+). Enjoy the ride. Owning an Axis is like a marriage... you're always working on it.

Hello, my name is Shilohjim. We have a 2001 Damon Escaper and I have one item I can't figure out. There is a switch in the Lav area of the bathroom with a red indicator light also a mate in the bedroom, can't figure out what it controls.

New Axis

Congratulations to all. Play in the steering? Wait until you have a big rig pass you or have to follow one. I had a Saf-T-Plus steering stabilizer, Koni shocks and now front Sumo Springs installed. Have your RV service center weigh each corner and have them recommend tire pressures too. All of these RVs are still considered "entry level" but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy them once you have adjusted yours for the driving experience you will actually enjoy.

I would make sure that the dealership you are dealing with also have a service department that you will be happy with since you are buying used and don't have to go to them for the first year warranty. You could end up making some "throw in the extras" only to find that the work was unsatisfactory and not worth your effort in haggling.

This is a fun forum for you to ask any questions you may have but again, just because it works for me, doesn't mean that it will be the exact answer on your rig. Enjoy.
