It was not simply a mistake by an inexperienced clerk. From all our research this is quite commonplace.
The nice thing about our side x side is it has all off road capabilities and has so far proven itself here in the AZ desert.
Our total height when the UTV is on top is 13'-2".

Been there and ...you know what I mean. Several times. To me, it's the greatest place in the world to take a vacation. Don't go in summer or winter. Off-season the prices drop a little. At least they used to. Make sure you have a small boat to tourist around in. Used to be you had to make your reservations a year in advance; probably even longer out now. Do lots of research; there's a thousand different landscapes and things to see. And being the traveler I know you are- especially out West- there are hundreds of little canyons to hike and explore around the lake. But you don't want to be in any of those little canyons if there is any indication of a storm at all. You know why. Man, I hope you get to go. It is the greatest!
We aren't big TV watchers but we do stream a lot of movies and some TV series when they become available on Netflix for binge watching. When we were in the B's and C we used our laptops to watch since we didn't want the weight of a TV. When we were in the Class A we had a retractable TV right across from the sofa also viewable from the Euro chair. I would not buy an RV with a TV over the cab because I had heard tales of them falling. Yup, I'm a worrier.
I use the Microsoft OneDrive and have "defined" it as the drive that all my basic libraries are stored on (documents, pictures, etc). Files on the OneDrive display in File Explorer as if they were on my computer. In addition I have specified that all cloud files are to be available offline which results in copies of all cloud documents also residing on my second HDD, my D: drive which carries nothing but data. So I get the safety of the cloud with the ability to have all my files available without an internet connection and without the need to actually do any backups.
As for programs and the operating system residing on my C: drive, I back that up to a local HDD every month or so using Windows Create System Image app.
