Good point, as far as wheels, I think they have shop wheels in use until a certain stage of completion. Once your final photos are sent then those should be your "real" wheels...

Yes; the wheels ARE temporary, and the elevated appearance is being checked on.

It will get here faster than you think. Maybe just because I am getting old...........but time seems to fly! (not sure if that is good or not..........)


It has been about a year since the deposit went in...........



Hang in there.

Our build photos are coming in. We got the first batch yesterday, and another today. We’re really excited. SO close now.

We did get two surprises in the first photos. We have a bathroom window and a driver’s side rear hatch we didn’t order. Not a big deal for us. We were on the fence on both options anyway. Now we just got them for free. Haha.

Edit: We want to add that while, yes, this was a screw up in production (it happens folks) ETI was great in their response (par for the course - especially with Melisa).

Thank you! I guess they just like cutting holes in fiberglass or something. Haha. No worries since it’s free!

Yes, indeed, comp fridge + no vents too.

Give a man a hammer.....................

I was not enthused....almost walked away....then what, another undefined wait?

DS rear is useless for me - and I hate the look of those hatches.

But, such is a factory order with apparently no controls in the FG shop....

I understand, for sure. We went back and forth on both that ds rear hatch and bathroom window, so it wasn’t as if we didn’t see benefits to both. We were going for a more “clean” look. At the same time, I also recall that some on this board have posted about installing their own diy hatches there. For us, it gets a shoulder shrug. Nothing we can do about it now.

Yep - same here. Naked graphics and the least holes possible.

But, IMO - You will appreciate the bathroom window.

Enjoy! Nice looking rig.

Hmm...........
Contemporary int., gray floors, comp fridge w/no vents, assume lithium and solar.........sounds familiar!

Right again, haha. Full package on solar and lithium. Plan to be away from the madness whenever possible. With that and the 7.2kw inverter “generator” on our F-150 PowerBoost, we should be able to camp off grid for as long as we can coax out of the tanks. Can’t wait. Good campin’ to you too.

It verifies the items that are to be shipped with your trailer. They shipped mine without my camera monitor. The person who took the pics, referred to my pics and said she messed up and forgot the monitor... shipped last week apparently..
