Default New To Us 2006 2720QB

FINALLY picked up our 2006 2720 from CustomRV today and brought our baby home! Had to make a stop at the DMV to get registered and plates but made it home no problem! Towing it was a breeze (first time towing anything), but I definitely need to practice my backing up skills. More pictures to come tomorrow after we open it up and start cleaning/getting it ready for our first test trip next weekend!

Congrats Brad! I know it's been a long haul but it does look great

That's awesome! Enjoy!

We've been on the lookout for a 2720qb but so far no luck.

One more pic for now. Cleaning the interior so I'll post more photos once we are done. So far everything is in REALLY good condition. Almost looks new!

Here is a list of the work that CustomRV did before we picked it up:

2" Lift Kit
Replaced 14" wheels/tires with new 15" wheels/tires
Replaced brakes and repacked the bearings
Replaced 1x12V battery with 2x6V Interstate batteries
Replaced 20gal freshwater tank with 40gal freshwater tank
When replacing the water tank they found the original water pump wasn't working, so they installed a new water pump.
Adjusted torsion bars and aligned the shells/seals
Graciously replaced all the Velcro and upgraded the Velcro on the walls to the newer "dots"
Installed WDH
Other general inspection/maintenance

They did a great job with the TM and they walked me through how to use everything. Looking forward to testing it out this weekend!

I'll post more pictures once we are done cleaning.

Wonder if there is a market for refurbished and upgraded aluminum TMs if done properly & with full QA. Just a thought.

ps is a 2010 2720SL on CL up in Winter Park and a 2013 2922KB over in Port Orange but I know nothing about them.

That's a very clean looking rig you got there and from the sound of it they did a good job getting it fit for fun!

A good rule of thumb about backing up a trailer....is this...when backing up a trailer, what ever direction you want the trailer to go, turn the BOTTOM of the steering wheel in that direction...so if you want the trailer to go to the right, you would turn the bottom of the steering wheel to the right (actually you're turning the steering wheel to the left)...does that make since??
Just a little trick I learned from a good friend who is a marine mechanic who deals with trailers all day.

Just gave it a wash. Unfortunately can't open it in our carport, so half the rear shell got missed...but boy does she clean up well.

Looks terrific! Leave the "weep holes" be, won't bother anything

Next weekend I'll be putting on my 250W solar panel on that clean back shell. I'll take pics and document my installation as part of my Solar Install FAQ package.
