Challenger cart arrived home safe.

Picked up my new Challenger cart yesterday. I must say they sure prepped it up for shipping from Indiana to Pembina North Dakota. Challenger was easy to deal with when buying direct. Only issue I had is that they wanted to charge me sales tax. No taxes are due when shipped out of state. I had to go all the way to the Indiana department of revenue and them in contact with each other. It took 3 weeks to build and 2 days to ship.

First pic is of the precious cargo in the back of my half ton.
Second is of the shipping container.
Third needs no explanation.

Tonight I will hopefully be putting the egg in it and stocking the shelves. Just need to pick up a table nest.

    Nice. You can use the scrap wood for a table for your mini egg that you are going to buy soon.

    Huh?

    I see something different. A shipping container, a cool cart, and then a really sweet fort. That's a win-win.

    I was waiting for someone to mention the order of pics. I uploaded them in the right order but they posted that way.

    Nice looking table.  48" or 54"?  All stock features?

    Strange that you ordered directly from Challenger; I spoke with them yesterday and they said I had to go through their distributors.  My local distributors don't know much about the products - one even claimed he had no idea how he was listed as a distributor, as he's never heard of Challenger!

    Nice, I've enjoyed my XL Challenger cart for almost a year now.  Its a big purchase, much like an egg, but is well worth it.

    Enjoy.

    I have heard the same couple of stories. I think that because I have no one close that sells them, living in Canada no one in the country sells them, that is why they sold me direct.

    Who said I didn't already buy it?

    Picked up a mini on my weekend US trip. Good deal I think. $330. Great deal considering they are $500 up here.
    Here is PaPa and baby.

    I had the same issue.  I went to a number of distributors and I came away with very little confidence that could order what I wanted.  I contacted Challenger and they gave may the correct codes to order.  I went back to one of the dealers with a piece of paper and said order *this*.

    I'm very happy with the cabinet.

    @THEBuckeye‌ I ordered direct from Challenger.
  • DobieDobie Posts: 1,625
    Challenger would not sell me direct. Depends If dealers are close I guess. Decided not to go the table route anyway due to space. Next time ....
