I hear your concerns. This is why it is not a bad idea to buy a slightly used camper. Hopefully, all the bugs are ironed out by the original owner so you don’t have to go through the ‘period of adjustment’. This is what we did the first time in 2001; but we got very lucky. We got 18 years, and hundreds of nights out of a $6500 camper that we still like. The problem was finding a used Northstar Laredo SC SB that check all our boxes. Not going to happen. So i was happy when the folks at Northstar agreed to my strange wishes; basically a stripped model with all season insulation and the few appliances with a good track record\: fewer perforations of the epidermis to eventually leak. Almost all the weight down low.
When we pick up the new Laredo SC in Sept. I hope we can park on the premises a day or two to load all our goods and familiarize ourselves with, and try every system enough to find any flaws.
