We're leaving in about an hour and will pick up our 2100 on Monday. Would have been one day this week but of course they're closed this week. Can't believe we're finally going to be on our way! Hurrah!!!! !:)!

Ditto from me.

You'll have some questions, so be sure to ask them all to whoever there is helping you there, I assume Stuart.  And the questions that come up later, ask them right here.  We can help you through most of them.

I am slowly becoming obsolete to provide help for new purchases given that our rig is 5 years old now, but many here have newer rigs with identical appliances & electronics, and they are great at helping on-line.

On your way back home, take note how your little 2100 handles.  If it is all over the road with every passing truck, requiring you to counter-steer a number of times to keep it in between the lines and settle it back down to go straight again, report back with the details.  There is always something that can be done to take care of it.  Some models have more handling issues than others.  It will be interesting to hear what you experience as we don't have many members here with a new 2100.

Regardless of how it handles, once back home schedule a wheel alignment at your local truck & RV suspension shop.  Every motor home regardless of brand needs one when new, and PCs are no exception.  You must get an alignment with the rig loaded as if on a trip with all your stuff, a full tank of gas and propane, a full fresh water tank, and empty waste tanks, and if you can, place weights behind the driver and passenger seats to simulate yourselves.  The added weight and position of it greatly affects the alignment so you want it aligned with the most common load distribution.  I learned that from my local RV/truck/bus/emergency vehicle suspension shop.

Enjoy your new home-on-wheels.

Thanks all. Just now able to get back on line. Have had a lot of trouble getting wi-fi reception at the cg's as we came up. We're in the Elkhart CG right now and will pick up our 2100 today!! Can't believe this day has finally come. Will let you hear any details later, maybe tomorrow since we'll be repacking all our junk (good stuff!) into the Cruiser this afternoon.
