Re: New Dutchmen

Delivering trucks? Do you work for a dealership or a manufacturer?

Re: New Dutchmen

First trip to Radium Hot Springs in BC for a couple of days on 26 May & then finish the week off at a local Camp Site. So excited even though we have no clue what we are getting into.
Hope to have some pics up tomorrow after PDI....

Re: New Dutchmen

Cool, the pickup is a pretty exciting event - lots to remember though so bring a notepad (I didn't and wish I had). Get some pics up here when you get it! JC

Re: New Dutchmen

Couldnt have picked a worse day for the pickup. Lots of snow in Airdrie but did the best we could.Lots of water on highway coming home , just did a steady 100kmh & everything seemed ok. Playing with things now outside the house.

Re: New Dutchmen

We had a list of things after our first trip, took it into the dealer and they fixed them all before our next trip.

Re: New Dutchmen

Looking good! Yeah, there will always be some minor items. Don't get too fussed, I am sure they will make everything right.

Re: New Dutchmen

Great Pictures!

Looks like a great rig. Don't be shy about asking the dealer to fix the slightest thing, drawer slide, trim, whatever. This is the time you should be able to get and have it exactly the way you want it. You'll probably have another shot right before the warranty runs out, say 11 months from now. Take it back in for another check over before the 1 year warranty period, not right after.

We have had great luck and experience with our Dutchmen.

Re: New Dutchmen

Thanks for all the input guys. It's a Reese WDH. Apparently my mistake as it's the only make they sell. Post pic of setup later. Brake controler installed & seems to be working fine, just not happy with location. Few squeeks in floor here & there & very dusty inside but all in all quite happy.

Re: New Dutchmen

congrats on the new trailer,another idea for leveling blocks, I bought a section of 2 1/2"thick by 12" wide LVL x 12' and cut them up into 12" blocks I use one under each leveling pad, works great on gravel and dirt.
