Picking it up on sat. 3/14!!

Hello All, proud to be part of this Forum.

Picking up my new Zinger 27RL tomorrow. Driving a Toyota Tundra, 5.8L. Pulled my 34 ft., Rockwood just fine.

Any words of wisdom or advice so I can get off on the right foot?

I'm not new to TT's or camping, but, some of these posts re: the Zinger are kinda' scaring me!!

Any re-assurance would certainly be appreciated.

Thanks!

First---Welcome aboard, and congrats on the new trailer.

Just remember, you will hear and read about the problems, a lot more then you will ever hear from the bigger % of owners without any problems.

All the rigs will have a certain amount of issues.
Make sure to do a "complete" PDI. If you don't have one to go by, holler and I will post a link for you.

Good luck.

Do a thorough PDI (pre-delivery inspection), and when you get it home go over all the caulking and make sure there are no gaps. Check your caulking at least once a year and touch up where needed. Water leaks can be very expensive.

Above all, enjoy the camper!

Welcome. Today's the day hopefully the PDI is going well. Enjoy it and I highly recommend a quick few nights stay to work the bugs out. Our dealer has a campground and we stayed in ours and were able to really inspect it well before heading home.

Welcome, Camper Queen. Don't I remember you from the Forest River Forum? Hope you enjoy your new Zinger. If it is as good as this old Cruiser I've got, it ought to be a dandy.

Congrats on the new Zinger. Our old Zinger was a great trailer with very few problems that were fixed under warranty. As far as the negative posts, you will see just as many on other forums and I can tell you I see a ton over on forest river. As stated above, the happy owners don't tend to post as much as the unhappy owners. Enjoy your new zinger.

I hope they are doing a thorough check out while enjoying themselves at a campground somewhere! Sure wish I was.
