Hello,

 

We leave CT tomorrow for the 1000 mile trek to pick up our 181B Retro.  To say we are excited would be an understatement.  We are making a trip out of it with many fun stops along the way.  It will be me and my boys (sons 11 and 9) making the trip with my wife and daughter staying home because they have a lot going on on the school vacation week.

Anyways, what advice do you all have for our “walk through” at the time of purchase?  What should we be looking for?  What specific areas might we want ot pay very close attention to?  Any expertise you all can provide would be greatly appreciated.

 

I thought I made a post like this already but I can’t seem to locate it.  This is my first “forum”

I will post some photos in the days to come.  

Thank you,

A.J.

First and foremost, make sure you are setup with the right size ball for the hitch. A lot of dealers put a 2″ ball for Retro’s and they need a 2 5/16″! Stamped on the hitch.

I would hope it’s plugged in and you can check all outlets, appliances, ect. Bring your phone charger if your model has the USB hub. Hopefully they fill your propane tanks and you can try those also, as well as fridge on both sources.  Try all access doors and inside doors. If hooked up to water try toilet, shower, and light hot water. Really give it the once over, after all you don’t want to haul it back to have it fixed. Good luck!!

Exciting News A.J make sure to post pictures!

 

What are you going to be towing it with?

 

Roccosamore has good advice.  You should have a 1 year warranty on it to fix anything you find after you take it off the lot as well.

Thank you for the great advice. I will follow through with your recommendations. We are currently on our way with a stop over in Buffalo.  We hit Niagara Falls yesterday with stops in Cleveland and Detroit today before spending a night in East Lansing tonight.
