Sometimes a topic has been covered so many times that it is better to look back thru the other postings to see what was recommended. There are many topics for PDI's which will also things to look at when shopping.

Perhaps we misunderstand the intent of your question. The forum is full of people willing, and even anxious to help. It seems you are going to look at floor plans and general quality and see if Redwood is the coach for you. In that case we wouldn’t expect a lot of inspection, more analysis and comparison to other brands.

Normally, after the purchase and at delivery you would perform your own Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI). The intent at that time is to ascertain that all systems are functional, and appearance and quality issues discovered at the dealers PDI have been corrected. When you are at that point, there are many comments on the forum and even checklists and recommendations to stay a night or two on the dealers lot if possible. The principle being that you will never be more important to the dealer than you will be prior to driving away.

My strongest recommendation would be to research the dealer. Look for complaints and try to assure yourself that he/she will be responsive when you have needs, and fight for you with the factory warranty administration people. Pick a good dealer and price is secondary to the pure aggravation of a non performing dealer. It is a home on wheels being beat up by some pretty awful roads in places. It will have issues, so be prepared to deal with them.

We have a 2018 3901WB. Once you look at some and still have some questions let me know and I will help if I can.

As mentioned, you need to shop the service department of whatever dealership rather than the sales. Once they've sold it the sales department is DONE, got your money, don't know your name.
There are PDI list to take with you, take your time, take video of the walk thru, don't sign anything until YOU are satisfied that everything is working properly or repaired to your satisfaction.

depending on the floor plan you want you may be able to find a really nice used redwood 2~3 years old. There is a truck and GK trailer for sale now here. If new is what you want the dealer ship service DEPT has the have the best ratings possible . Sales dept just takes your money, the service dept takes your trailer and makes it right and keeps you happy!

Residential refrigerator

If your getting one with the residential refrigerator have them put in a remote switch and indicator for the inverter. I bought a 2019 3401rl and in order to run refrigerator on battery you have to climb in the front storage compartment and reach way up and feel for the button. The remote and cable only cost $25. Why they did not install one when building it is surprising. I ordered one now I hope I can run the cable up to the kitchen area.
