We have been enjoying our 2015 (purchased used about 2 months ago), we have been out 4 times including a trip to southern Ohio (from western MI).

I have my winter work lined up. I have purchased the wet bolt kit from Mor-Ryde and I will raise the trailer (go to the lower holes) when I install the wet bolt kit. Also plan to put in a cross brace between the center suspension mounts while I am under there.

Grumpy Medic - Looks like we both have the same 5'r! Nice pic but the landing gear is a bit lower than I like when towing. I'm sure you're going to love it. We just got ours back in June and have been camping several times. You'll notice a few little things after a couple trips - saw dust, loose screws, something not quite perfect. This is all part of the break in process. When you take it in for your winterizing, have the dealer do the warranty work. We'll probably be doing ours in December as CW is back logged. Good luck!

Thanks for all the warm welcomes! I noticed the landing gear looked a bit low when I looked back at the pictures Will have to make sure I raise it all the way up!
