Planning our 4th and final trip for the year. Still no problems with the trailer systems and we are continuing to refine our "procedures" for hookup / backing and such. Since we have some experience with the 184BH now I thought I'd post some observations on what have found on this model.
The 2 burner stove works great but it is hard to use more than a single pan given the small size and the fact that the burners are not side by side. Understandable given the size of the trailer but still somthing to consider for somone who is considering this model.
The table legs are very flimsy so you have to take care when folding them down to make up the bed. They will bend to the side if you do not collapse the legs far enough before applying alot of force folding them against the table top.
There is quite a bit of movement in the trailer when it is setup. This model only has stab jacks on the rear so I may either invest in another set up front or just get some jack stands at harbor freight. Another option might be different chocks or tapping the ones I have up snug against the tires.
The hot water tank is very well insulated. I turn the temp down to pilot before we go to bed and it is still very warm in the morning. This was after lows in the high 40s overnight.
We were surprised at how much "stuff" can go in the cabinets. My wife brings 2 kitchen sinks
when we camp and we can get it all put away. The top bunk is generally used for our bags and personal items during the day and moved to the couch at night. This would be a problem if you are trying to sleep 5. With 4 it just takes a few minutes to re-locate everything.
The trailer pulls very well behind a V6 Tacoma with the "sweet spot" at about 2500 rpm or 63 mph. Going faster is no problem but sway is greater and fuel consumption is alot worse. I used about 9 gallons going 120 miles so not bad at all actually. Climbing hills is not an issue either and seems to work best at about 60 mph.
Overall we love this little trailer and given the cost, its a great value. I would recommend it to anyone and we even got a call from our salesman. Somone we showed it to on our first trip bought one from him!
