SPOON - Yes it is, Demo went good when I got home I found some minor issues and they forgot the LED lights in the awning so I will be calling them in the am. As for towing I noticed a little sway in it on the thruway and a little bounce and figured that was going to happen so I plan on putting in some bags in the rear suspension for ONLY when I am towing.

You mentioned a little sway .... What type of weight distribution hitch do you have or any sway control?

Fill, I have the same TT model (2014)

We love it, this floorplan is perfect for a family imo!

I had sway issues also at first, did 3 things:

- ensured that I had sufficient weight on the front,
- slightly overfilled my truck's tires (recommended 30psi made the sidewalls too soft under load)
- Ensured that my Equalizer hitch had proper nut tension.


Since then, no more sway, I see a little wiggle at the back when I tow it, but there is no sway felt (either on the truck or the TT). I noticed that when I follow a car hauling rig, or an open cage-rig, I get more wiggle at the back of the TT but nothing dangerous


Enjoy your 28BHBE

One of your original questions was pointers or suggestions.

I would like to POINT out that your going to have a much more enjoyable Glamping experience. And I would like to also SUGGEST you get out there while the weather is nice and camp, camp, camp...

Seriously though.. We moved up from a pup to a TT last year and are in heaven.

Congrats on your purchase, our 28BHBE is a 2013 model and we have spent 2 years in it as a seasonal, we have camped over 100 nights in 2 years so yes we really are enjoying it. Here is a pic of our setup, we have the only tiki bar in the campground
