Hello from S Florida

I just wanted to say hello. I have been renting RV's for years and its time to finally buy one. I hope it happens soon. I have seen more and more on the road lately.

We too are from South Florida. We are purchasing our RV next Tuesday in NY. Sure hope it's everything they say it is. We are NEWBIES so sure hope we enjoy this traveling venture. Do you have any pointers for us when we take ours for inspection and text drive?

You certainly should have many new and used units to pick from in that Miami/Dade area. Good luck with your search and welcome!

Download Ed Felker's manual from link above. He has an exhaustive checklist for you to use when you accept the coach. My advice is USE IT. Hook up the coach to shore power and check everything. Unplug and turn on the generator and check it again. Then turn off the generator and check everything with no power. Plan to take at least half a day or a full day, if you can, to thoroughly check over everything. If they will allow it, stay overnight and live in it for a day. One of the general managers who took my final check on one of my RVs was quite honest. As soon as you leave the lot, he said, it is yours and we and you have to work thru Thor for warrantee work.
Finally, do not accept it until everything and I mean everything is fixed to your satisfaction. Be a jerk. They probably will be after you leave. You will want to drive out of the lot and start playing with your new toy - I know. I have purchased four RVs and a half dozen boats and it is always the same. Your heart gets in front of your head.
I love my Axis and I had a Vegas before this one. Not trying to scare you. Just wish I had followed my own advice more closely. I would have been a lot happier. Good luck. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed ours.

"more and more on the road lately"..... wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the Baby Boomers are getting to the age of wanting to see their country first hand?
