My wife & I are complete rookies when it comes to RVs. I've done so much reading my eyes are bleeding
Also toured so many RVs I'm geting a little sick of it. And that may be why I just pulled the trigger on a used ( 2012 ) Jayco X213. Normally, I'd go home & do a lot of research about a particular model. But this looked well taken care of, and the price was good ( I think ). We were supposed to PDI & sign paperwork today. But the dealer had to do some sort of LP check. And they found a leak. They said it might take awhile to locate & fix. So we put everything off until tomorrow. I must say though, I REALLY like the floorplan of this little trailer. To get a king bed in something this size was unexpected.
Have a couple questions. The salesman said he'd give me a WDH. Not a new one, but one they had lying around. I have that at home. My question about that is the large center piece with the ball says it's rated at 14,000 lbs. The two bars that attach to the saddles each say 10,000 lbs. So these "may" not be parts of the same set. They are the same brand ( EAZ LIFT & the ELITE model or series ). The question would be is there a potential problem with the 14K vs 10K ratings on the two different parts?
Next question. We still don't have a tow vehicle. I'm kinda thinking I'd like a VW Touareg V6 diesel. But I did read somewhere the short wheelbase could be an issue. I was hoping this being a pretty light trailer, the VW would work. Anybody here tow with a Touareg? If so, any issues?
We are really looking forward to dipping our toes into this RV lifestyle.
Thanks for any and all advice.
