Last fall (2016), a friend of ours bought a brand new Paradise Coast, 2016 Silver Beach 162Q and she totally loves it. Since then we've been thinking about buying a 249FDQ, so we called, made an appointment for a tour of the facilities, booked a flight & made our hotel reservations, and off to Michigan we went. (BTW: they recommended the Bistro hotel, got us a great deal on our room with a great view of Lake Michigan and "Silver Beach".) Timing was everything, we got there and it was nearly 75 degrees on the lake (which is apparently nearly unheard of during February in Michigan). The tour was quick as they are a small family owned business and not mass producing like all the "disposable" trailer companies out there. Ted and his boys were great, they explained "in detail", the production procedures, camper functionalities and how the whole process works from beginning to end. When it was all said and done, we picked our colors and ordered our 24 footer (calling back about a week later after we picked out out countertops). It took a little more than 8 weeks but we received our camper two weeks ago, took off for Arizona and have had a great time in our new camper. Everywhere we stopped, people asked who restored our vintage camper. Going down the highway people were checking it out, taking pictures and giving us.... "Thumbs Up". Lol But, the greatest thing about this whole experience is we had input in what we were buying, now it's got personality!!!

I was researching retro campers & found this small business who custom makes them. The camper I got is so kool. Yes, the delivery time did run over the promised date but then again it's custom made-to-order. It was well worth the wait! Great detail on it, no complaints. I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance. Nice guy to do business with .
Cost $15,000 - $19,999
