Hi
I ordered a 28a2017 through the Manassas va. Location . Anyone have any information about getting an inspection in that area . They say they are refurbished in Mesa Az. And then driven to va. Via .hired driver or 1 way rental. Has anyone purchased extended warranty and attempted to use it . Should I expect or ask for anew set of tires . Should batteries be new ? Do they do a complete trans mission fluid change with a new screen.


I skipped the warranty when I looked at the small print. The 30 day one is quite comprehensive though so make sure you take a trip in that time.

They don't change fluids - or test them. I had a complete fluid test and was told "well you can change it if you want". I did.
The battery will be original as long as it holds some charge. The tires will be as is unless illegal.

I did use an outside inspector (in Denver so not a lot of good for you I'm afraid) and I'm glad I did. When they refurbished the roof they didn't finish it correctly.

So you ordered an RV from them without having them answer any of these questions/concerns? You're far braver than others [emoticon]

Extended warranty - search the forum. There is already plenty of information on this topic.

Tires - mine came with new or at least newer tires, but you should ask your point of contact at C.A.

Batteries - mine came with a new vehicle battery and not a new coach batter, but you should ask your point of contact at C.A.

Trans fluid change - Mine came serviced, but you should ask your point of contact at C.A.

The common theme is that "your mileage may vary" and you should reach out to the person that you just bought it from rather than the forum. Your experience may vary from my experience which may vary from Bob's experience which may vary...


Edited to add - as you can see from the above reply to your post, your mileage WILL vary!

thanks for your reply , the questions were asked and answered but I was looking for a consensus from people who purchased the same to see how they made out.

Just ordered one of the 19G's today and will be available for pickup February 25th. Will get it professionally inspected including fluids analysis before final payment. Don't think I will be getting the Extended Service Agreements. CA pays up to $300 for a one way car rental to Orlando. Will keep the forum appraised of the progress.

According to the Cruise America brochure and the Orlando Sales Manager they provide a 3 month/3,000 mile Power Train Warranty. We will plan on using the motor home quite a bit within that 3 months in order to shake out any imperfections. By the way, does CA give you any of the supporting equipment such as Water Pressure Regulator, 30 AMP Surge Protector, Water Hose and Sewage Line, etc.?
