Just got back and have to say the AF performed flawless.

The temp was 105 on East Coast and stayed nice and cool inside.

No sewer and 2 weeks without dumping so the tanks were full.

Very pleased with the unit this far.

Lets hope 2 or 3 years down the road i can say the same thing.

Boring. We need reports of massive frame failures, tanks falling out, delam and cabinets doors falling off. [emoticon]

Seriously, nice to hear a good report.

What model? Need some pics!
Mine has been less than stellar. Many, many quality issues and an immediate roof replacement because of a build goof. Replacement work was shoddy (done in one day..). Still need to get cracks in siding repaired where they banged the wall on something before it was installed on the trailer.
ON the positive side it has a great floor plan, the dual pane windows make it quiet with no condensation ever and there are a lot of little extra's that cheaper rigs don't have. It also has a TON of storage. We have drawers and cabinets that are totally empty!

Congratulations on your new fiver and the success of your first trip. That's how it should be. We've thought about what we might do for our next one and AF is high on the list. I just wish they would offer a residential fridge option, which last time I checked they didn't.

I owned my last one for 8 years, and bought a new one this spring. My biggest issues with the new one were with the finish work on the inside.

We just finished 10 days at an electric only site, and we love the tank sizes. We could get by on our last one, but with this one we can shower every day, and still didn't run out of water.

I am betting you will still like it a few years from now.

We were set on getting a new Winslow, but unfortunately Excel stopped production before we were ready. They were very nice units.
