Hi again Madonna, we stayed at Elkhart campground highly recommend. It rained steady for the first two days so not much testing of outside things of the coach. However we had no leaks so it worked out lol. The ding in paint had to be taken back to the paint shop so that took a few hours. The other issues took maybe ten minutes plus a test drive. After owning a big pusher (used) we had LOTS of issues with it so we were not that upset with these minor issues.Things I'd change. Shelves over the beds for phones, Ipads. We did put ac/dc plugs. A dedicated solar monitor like Bogart 2030. I'd see if they could put a double recliner instead of the pullout bed/recliner its a pain to pullout and use as a recliner. We will never need an extra bed.Make sure to put all the custom work in writing with very specifics on what, where you want changes. Then there are not misunderstandings. Ours were minor and worked out but not as I envisioned.Merry Christmas!John

They must have changed the sofa, on our 2015, 2551 each side reclines separately and does so electrically.
Iíve been looking and donít see many members here who own a 2018 PC. I have used the search feature and maybe I need to use a more sophisticated search string. I would really like to touch base with any 2018 owners to check on their experiences with delivery and impressions of their rigs so far. Thanks in advance!Madonna
Sadly, one of the (few) disappointments we had at pickup was a similar story. Lots of little things, and a couple of really big things, that should have been caught at PDI. I guess we should consider that the DEALER is supposed to do the PDI and take the cost of that out of their profit. I understand when LTV allowed pickup at the factory they charged the customer extra for performing the PDI at the factory instead of at the dealer.I cannot say I like the situation, but in Phoenix's case we are buying 'factory direct' and need to do our own PDI. Hopefully this will change in the future as the new owners learn the ropes and hear the complaints.But in the mean time anyone picking up a new rig should expect to examine every single item with a fine tooth comb. Nothing should be expected to work or even be installed without verification.Due to time constraints we were able to stay only one night at the Elkhart fairground RV park, but I wish it could have been at least two or three. We put a tablet on the counter and every time we found an issue we wrote it down. When we pulled back into the factory the next morning we handed our list to Bobby and the guys and they jumped right on it. They had everything on the list done in a couple hours. So they are amazingly responsive to getting issues fixed. But I wish they would spend a little more time fixing those before the customer picks up.
Quality needs to be demanded or take your money elsewhere.
comparable to the aircraft industry? Really? I spent over 30 years tied to the aircraft industry and can tell you they have many levels of quality control
