Amelia and Todd,

Welcome to the Forum and best of luck with the learning curve of being an RV owner.

We purchased our's 13 months ago and spent the first 5 months fixin' stuff: Alignment, warranty work, Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer, batteries, cables, screws, bolts, locks, cosmetic repairs and just odds and ends.

If you have a good dealer great; if not you will have to work thru THor, so document everything, be patient, be polite and be persistent (took me 7 months to get one problem fixed and reimbursed).

I would suggest searching the threads on:
Steering Stablizers (Safe-T-Plus is what we went with),
Front End Alignment (Just do it and then deal with Thor vs Ford; I was told that if it was the Toe In/out then it was Thor's problem, if Caster and Camber it was Ford's. The threads this Forum will show where some got reimbursed, some did not and some negotiated it as part of the deal for the sale).
Batteries and Charging problems.
Tire Pressure.

If you cover those four early on you will travel more safely and the other problems can be dealt with as they come up.

At the local Ford Dealership was a 2017 Ford Mustang 500 GT Shelby Convertible with all the bells and whistles sticker priced at $69K before tax and fees. It only has two doors...your RV costs a little more than that but comes with a lot more than two doors so be prepared to have things that need fixin' and/or replacement.

Now a little over 1 year we are having a blast in our RV "Ms. boldly go".

Good luck, safe travels and be patient.
