My wife and I ordered a new RL with full body paint and are patiently waiting for it's arrival in early April. After almost buying a Carriage and looking at 5ers for the last couple of years we finally decided on the Redwood due to it's weights and quality. Ours will have a GAS generator installed by the dealer, G rated tires, disk brakes, dual pane windows, 40# LP and the slid-in-slide options. We're planning a tour of the factory when ours is on the production line so we can see it during the build process.

Has anybody had any real issues with these trailer yet? We're going to spend the first night in it at the dealership in hopes of finding little issues before we head home.

The only real issue I had on my 36RE is one of the motors on the bedroom slide went out on our very first outing. I believe another member on this forum had the same issue and they replaced both of the motors on their bedroom slide.

Congratulations on your new order! I would
love to take a tour of the plant someday let us know how it was. </span>Mine should be leaving their soon it was in
paint last week. You say you got a gas generator? I have been looking at
campers for the last year and no one would put a gas one in, all were saying it
had to be propane I wanted a gas it is easier to find gas out in the boonies
sometime on weekends. Where are they going to place your gas tank? Are you just
going to have a quick connect and sit it on the ground? Not much room on the
right side with the batteries located their.</span><?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

We just came back from placing our order for the RL, we opted to stay with the Propane Gen as we don't need to be carrying around gas, now a Diesel would make sense for us, but from what I've heard the Propane are very clean buring. So for now we're in the waiting mode, should get a tentative date in a few days.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new RL. My DW and I have been traveling full time in our 37FL and haven't had any issues worth mentioning. It's so much more comfortable than our previous travel trailer and having a washer and dryer on board has been a huge time saver for us.
I hope your's is as trouble free as ours has been to date.

Good luck with your new rig! Pleaseend me a picture after you get it. As for the generator, this dealer has installed them before on other trailers. He said the fuel tank will be mounted under the unit somewhere and it will have either a 20 or 25 gallon fuel tank with a gauge. I didn't want LP because it's so inconvient and you have probelms with them in the winter. It'll be a Onan 5.5 generator which should give me enough power for both ac units and heat pumps.

Thanks for the information and I hope you continue loving your trailer. The washer and dryer will be added to my rig in the near future. I got everything else that I wanted but held off on that option for now. I probably should have had it included though.

Sounds like there are a lot of orders to be filled before they get to my wife and I order, we ordered ours last saturday, what has been the average wait time for delivery? Welcome to the club Dave & Ginny I think you made a very good choice in in your Redwood.

I am wondering what is the cut off for the 2012's and beginning of the 2013's I'm not sure but I think those of us who are expecting delivery in late march could possibly be a 2013? Any thoughts out there? My dealer said the 13's are usually released in march.
