We love our 26BH! We are a couple with 3-1/2 and 5-1/2 yo kids. They love it and never want to go home when we are camping.

As for your camber question - pull it in a straight line for a ways on level ground and see if it is straight... it takes a trailer length or so to straighten up after turning.

I've been fulltiming in my 26BH for a few years now, and haven't had many problems. The worst was when the lower section of aluminum siding blew loose from the front end of the TT while on the road in 100+ degree temps. Was able to secure it temporarily, then later fixed it right.

As far as the bedroom TV mount, I didn't use the marked space to mount mine. I positioned the TV mount higher on the wall, securing it into the cabinet framework on the opposite side of the wall. It's very stable mounted that way.

Was in the trailer last night zipping up TV wires and noticed the TV mount in the bedroom was not secure, tried to tighten it and it pulled out. Turns out someone put the "place mount here" sticker in the wrong spot and the dealer missed the stud. Took it all apart and used a stud finder to secure it properly.

Getting ready for longer road trip and stay, we'll see how it goes!

Well we're home from a long trip to NE Vermont. Everything worked great!

I do have to figure out the whole weight thing, on the way home the trailer pulled a little different than on the way there. Not sure what thats all about.

A lot of things can affect how the trailer pulls other than weight distribution in the trailer. Road surface, wind, how the weight distribution/sway system is set up, whether the fresh water/waste tanks are full or empty, and tire pressures are some things that be different from time to time, and can affect how the trailer feels when towed. Glad your 26BH is a good one!
