Thanks for the info, I will be doing the LED light changes too...I did it with my tent trailer. Just trying to figure out how many watts I will need for soloar charging.

I think that they only have one left and that one has the single 30 gal tank and no oven
We are going a different route, as much as we like the Jay feathers etc we will most likely try to get into something a bit bigger. We are still working out the details of which unit. I think your trailer is one of the nicer units. I was at Traveland last weekend and looked at a few Jay Feathers as well as a few Jay Flights. It's a tough decison for us as we all want the best bang for our buck, but man , am I having a tough time figuring out what unit to buy. I will also be at the dealers this Saturday hopefully ordering our new unit. Anyhow, congrats and enjoy your new trailer.

We bought from Travelland as well. So far they have been excellent to deal with.

Thanks, good luck with yours, I m sure whatever one you decide on will be equally as nice. We did not want to upgrade my truck just to pull anything bigger. They say gas is going to go thru the roof this summer

I stopped in at travelland on Saturday and saw your trailer parked waiting for you guys to pick it up. I was looking at an electric tongue jack for mine. They sure are expensive, I think I will order one off ebay from manitec for $100 cheaper.

LOL lets not go spreading rumors. :hihi:

It was nice to meet you. That is a great looking trailer you bought. How did it feel behind your truck? More importanly how does it look in the driveway?

Wow....I probably saw you there....I arrived at 11:00 .....took 4 hours from start to finish. They had to set my truck up with the WDH and Primus brake controller in their shop and then they had to hunt for my tent trailer that I traded in to get my licence plate. Boy was I impressed with the way it tracked when I was towing it home....there was no swaying even with the high winds.....mind you when I was driving into the wind...it did make my truck slow down a little bit. I wasn't pushing it hard either since this is the largest trailer that I have ever pulled. Just as I was getting the final details dealt with, I met one of the members from here that was looking at the travel trailers. It was pretty cool.

It caught me off guard when you came up and asked if I was Westerncanuck...It was a pleasure to meet you too. This trailer towed like a dream even with the wind. The WDH really made a difference in keeping it level over the bumps. The only thing that I need to do is get mirror extensions for backing up because I could barely see the sides since the trailer is 8' wide. Sure got a lot of looks from other drivers though driving home. When I got it home to my driveway, it looked huge....but it looked even better in the driveway than at the dealer. Only thing I was dissapointed in was that the battery they put in was a group 24 and not the group 27 that I had on my tent trailer. I am going to give them a call tomorrow about that. I also need to find out if there is a disconnect for the battery. The stereo and the propane and co monitor dran the battery inless I plug in.
