2014 Coachman Chapparal 28BHS. Towed fairly well and it seemed to flex less at the hitch than the last 5er I hauled (2014 Crossroads Zinger). After hauling 30 ish different trailers over the past 7 months I pick up on the smallest of details now. You can almost tell what a trailer weighs without even looking at the paperwork. I still prefer a 5er over a TT in terms of hook up time and towing experience. Leaving again Monday am to pick up something...it's month end and they are screaming to get trailers off the manufacturers lots.
Hitch Weight 1,320 lbs. (599 kg )
Base Weight 7,650 lbs. (3,470 kg)
GVWR 9,800 lbs. (4,445 kg)
Exterior Length 33' 7" (10.2 m)
Exterior Height 12' 1" (3.7 m)

You and me both. I was so sick of the snow by the time winter was over, I use to enjoy the snow...that is until I started towing trailers in it!

Picked up this 2104 Coachman Chaparral 345 BHS. Tows awesome which seems to be the case for all the heavy 5ers I've towed. Coachman trailers seem to be fairly well built from what I have seen. Which this one had LT instead of ST tires on it but it still handles very well. Unfortunately for me and my truck though we are sitting in Sauk City, Wisconsin with rear diff problems. Hope to be up and running by end of day today, then only 22 hours to delivery point of Lloyminister, Saskatchewan.
Ha ha! I've been staring at this pic for 5 minutes trying to remember where I took it! Des Plaines, Illinois at the Oasis on the toll hwy.
Hitch Weight 1,900 lbs. (862 kg)
Base Weight 10,640 lbs. (4,826 kg)
GVWR 13,500 lbs. (6,123 kg)
Exterior Length 38' 0" (11.6 m)
Exterior Height 12' 6" (3.8 m)

No cheese lol.

2014 Cedar Creek Cottage park model CCK40. Bit of a monster. This had a really high tongue weight so I throw the WD bars on just for fun. They did help some I'd say. Tough getting any decent MPG out of these things as they are just not designed with towing in mind. You sure know 11,000 lbs of bumper pull is back there no matter what you do though!!

Just checked my paper work yup it was a 2011 28 bhs. Towed really smooth bit felt tongue heavy. Barely knew it was there, did not feel like 28 ft of trailer. Guessing your 6.0 laughs at it as well!
