That is a big one Greenenvy1,
I know you didn't like that 1st Park Model.
I can't imagine this in high winds.

Glad you got to take your DW with you.
Safe travels and thanks for posting.

Best regards,
Doug

Jdorant, sounds like you purchased your trailer from the same dealer we ended up at for our unit. I heard ours has been built and released for delivery so hopefully this is the next to last leg. How did things go for you at delivery time? Based on their reputation, good to excellent I hope. Thanks.

Wow, I wonder what the tongue weight is on that baby! I notice only one AC unit too, have to wonder if that will do the job on a unit that large.....

Greenenvy1,
With this latest Park Model, what type of anti-sway system did you use? Two friction bars or other system? Given the windy conditions you described, it would have been a real test of the system!

Zero WD system was used during this tow.

Just got details on my next trailer and it looks like another park model. Maybe I throw the WD hitch on for this one.

2013 Puma 39PBS another park model. At least there was no wind this trip. Not many people get to tow these park models as I guess they only get moved a few times in their lifetime. This one towed well for what it is, much more aerodynamic front end compared to the last one I hauled. I was able to keep in in the 10 mpg range for the majority of the 1350 miles. On a side note it was on this trip that I logged my first 100,000 kms (62,000 miles) since I started on November 22, 2013.

Length 40'2"
Width 8'0"
Height 11'9"
Hitch Weight 1,295 lbs
Dry Weight 9,225 lbs
