southco's 2017 28BHBE

Nothing special. Just a few pics of the new camper. We picked it up at the end of May and have gone on three camping trips. So far no issues so pretty happy. Really enjoying the extra space provided by the slide but still worry one day it will cause me problems...

First two pics are the day we picked it up.

Last pic is of the vent cover I added.

After the initial tow home and the first trip I had to get a shank with more drop as the camper was nose high. The Blue Ox drop shank allowed me to get the camper slightly nose down and tows very well.

I was very hesitant to add a slide topper but really wanted one. Spoke to a few members and felt comfortable enough to have the dealer install it before pickup (thanks BigJohnD and MIFL19H).

Here's a pic from our second trip with the camper. The awning LED is way too bright to put on a night. This pic was around dusk and was fine (but once it's dark I turn it off).

I installed a Moryde tv mount and 39" Vizio HD tv. This is a pic of the tv straps I also installed. Other than the vent cover, the tv and the Progressive Industries 50HW i haven't installed anything else. So this isn't a great mod thread like others lol.

These pics are of our most recent camping trip over the 4th weekend. It rained like crazy a few times so I'm confident we have no leaks. Never had to pull the awning in and witnessed the dump feature work a few times before I tilted the awning. Wind never really picked up enough to cause any issues...

Well thanks to all those who have answered PM's and provided info in their threads. This site has definitely helped me over the years.... I plan to mod my tv setup similar to BigJohnD's and may post up a few pics as I go. I'm not blazing any new trails so thanks to those who are...

Looking good SouthCo...

I have not had a chance to install a slide topper, I have the aluminum sides and Jayco told me flat out that it was not designed for one but I will eventually find the time to install one. I wanted to install prior to the trip we are on now but just did not have the time.

I will also be doing the MorRyde wet bolt and cross support mods as BigJohnD graciously provided info on. I am highly suspect of the weak suspensions on a trailer this size... especially after the roads we have traveled so far through Indiana and Illinois.

We are in Nashville right now half way thru a 2 week, 2,500 mile trip. So far the Equalizer hitch has been doing well... I think I got it dialed in now.
