After a month waiting for an upgrade, hauled that big boy back home a few days ago. Last trailer was a 30' Gulfstream Conquest...1991, so was due. Both of us are retired, and just as soon as the grandkids are full timers at school, will be taking longer trips. Longest trips in the past was 3 weeks. This one has slide outs!!! I know... they have been around for a while, but I'm still excited.
Read other forumsthat some owners (mind you... numbers are small)hadslide-out failures, etc, so purchased additional 6 year "pin to rear bumper" warranty.
A few things I plan on doing to the trailer, and thought I would ask on everyone's feedback.
1. Rocker panel paint on the front frame/I-beam to guard against stone chips.
2. Rocker paint on the gas line (brand new and it looks like my 1998 Express brake lines).
3. Anyone had their underbody framerust preventive sprayed? (Krown Rust) Bad idea?
4. Replace screw attachmentto "push-to-open" fasteners (similar to panel on converter)on water pump and hot water tank access panels.
All in all, its a great unit, and did I say its BIG?? I could jump and almost touch the top of my old trailer....but this one, I need to jump just to get the first step!!!
