That's exciting, sounds like you'll have a more interesting day than I will at work.
Good luck with your PDI tomorrow and congrats on your new rig!

Our unit was about a week to 10 days beyond the expected delivery date.
Not too bad at all....

Hope your trip went well. How did your new ST handle on the highway? Picked our ST 30RE first week in March, and this weekend will be our first camping weekend of the new year. Really pumped! Have a grrreat summer.

Just returned from the 125 mile trip to pick up the unit. I am very pleased with how it towed. It pulled much easier than our last unit. (Hornet 29BH). But it is much lighter at just under 5k lbs dry weight and it is shorter. I pull with a 3/4 ton chevy but I think this one would pull just fine with a half ton. I would suggest this unit to anyone with a 1/2 ton vehicle.
I am happy so far with the unit but need to tidy some things up that the factory missed, nothing big just tune up a few areas.
Then I am thinking of a few mods.
-corner shelves for the bunks
-make the curtain into a two pc, uppper and lower curtain for the bunks. Keep the boys from fighting over open or closed.
-add 12 volt power sources to the bunk areas. Then they can plug in the DVD players and crawl into the bunk for a movie when they need the time away.
I am also thinking of making a sliding drawer/shelf for the pass through on the door side. Has anyone done this? I think it will help fully utilize this area. On my last unit I noticed stuff got shoved to the middle of the pass through and was out of reach. We will see if I get this done or not.

More to come I am sure.

That's great, good to hear all went well. One of the first mod's I did was pull up the plastic registers and replace them with metal ones that can open and close. I noticed when the slide would close it acted like a ginormous dust pan and pushed any loose debris right down the OEM registers. Lowe's has these in stock and it takes less than 5 mins to replace them.

I have also been considering a sliding tray/table from the forward storage area on the curb side of the unit. I just don't know if I want to give up the few extra inches of storage since it would have to be built up from the floor to the door opening (which is what you give up).
CW sells a kit to make one but they're very expensive.

Here are a few URLs you may want to check out. They show you what you'll need if you decide to do it.

I hear you on the loosing space, but I think I would make up for it by gaining easier access to the center of the pass through.

Glad you finally got it. We have been out six nights over the last two weeks camping in ours. Big difference in what we had. Love the 31BH.
