New '08 Cardinal

Postby bayoubengal » Thu Feb 07, 2008 7:34 pm

Has anyone taken delivery on an '08 that was ordered after 27 November?
That is the date that all the new changes were supposed to take place.

Obviously no one has taken delivery yet. Does anyone have a target delivery date?

We may be the first (at least 1st forum member). We are picking ours up Saturday, will keep you posted. Now I have to plan my maiden voyage to get out the kinks.

Any advice for our first run through?

Come to Tyler, I am sure you will have plenty of "interested bystanders" who will jump at the chance to Teach a Newbie! LOL!
Well, if you don't wish to take that advice, I have nothing else to add, except HAVE FUN! Look forward to seeing you somewhere along the road! DnD

Sorry, but we can't make the rally. But thanks for the offers.

Double D's,
When you say newbie I figure you mean a new Cardinal owner not new at RVing, right?

That is just what I meant! LOL! Seems that every one of these rigs has their special quirks, problems, or opportunities for customizing! Can't wait to see pictures of your new rig! Donna

Well we didn't get our 31RKLE Cardinal today. As soon as they opened the door I saw they didn't put in the right floor. We ordered the wood plank and got the regular linoleum. The dealer said they can fix it, but I'm not sure I want them to do it. Their work is never as good as from the factory. Also, should the wood plank also be in the bedroom? Boy was I disappointed.

One mistake I made was not verifying what full living and kitchen linoleum meant. I didn't get the carpet under the chairs. I thought I needed the option for full linoleum to get it through the living room. Has anyone had this situation? Will my chairs fly all over the place?
