Thanks guys for all the advice!!!
2 kids right? I'd say you're full up on monkey problems! LOL!

Good luck, and welcome to the fray!

Subaru - Haven't been out yet, and it looks like early August before we can go. Thinking our first trip out will be around the corner....literally. I have the TT stored at the AF Base here and there is a famcamp that next to the RV storage lot. So we figured it might be a good trial run for us before we head out into the wild blue yonder.

Back to the truck, I added a 12k tow capacity tow bar and an anti-sway bar. So far, all is good and the trailer tows real well. The rear of the truck is level and I haven't felt the need to install air bags (just yet). Thinking if I keep it level and under 9k, we should be good with the Raptor. Hoping.

Sounds good. Glad it is working out for you but sorry you have to wait until August to get out there!

Arcadia might be a good close option too. I'm local (and prior military too!) so let me know if I can help in anyway.

Congrats on the 28BHBE, great floorplan you'll love it.

Electric leveling jacks are a source of headaches for all tow trailers and I would not trade my manual jacks with a cordless drill and Camco Adaptor (Available at most Walmarts and Camping stores).

Have fun
