Thanks Cassie,
It is good to know there is someone who believes in giving the buyer a product that the builders take a little pride in presenting to a customer.

I think I agree with this opinion. Our (early )2017 R-179 (it's still green) has been clean in every hidden compartment that we've opened. So I think the detritus issue that I've read about on the forum may very well be confined to one or more production facilities, and is by no means a universal observation.

Or the dealer may be more interested in presenting a clean coach to the buyer.

That's certainly a possibility. At any rate, ours was really clean.

Have to agree with Keith-N-Dar. when we picked up our 177 back in March of 2011 it was spotless, the dealer went through all the cubbyholes with us showing us storage, ect.  No debris or dust or wood shavings anywhere.  Maybe it was the dealer as there seem to be more that complain about the opposite of what we experienced.

Mine had considerable debris in out of the way places, but I was second owner, I cleaned, so no one to blame but me now.
