When you are on your way to Fargo and you see the sign for Mayville State University that's where my daughter works.

Getting ready to leave tomorrow so better post an update on the last trip!
2014 Heartland 270HG Toyhauler. New design and not all the specs are on the website. IIRC shipping weight was 10, 200 lbs, think it was around 31 feet long. Was a rather pin heavy unit and really short looking. Cool layout though. Towed ok and mileage was decent.
Second trailer was a 2014 Coachman Catalina Park model. I got distracted and forgot to take pictures of this unit. I can tell you this much...it was a park model and towed just like the others.

Second pic is from the Heartland factory. Snapped a quick pic of an incomplete unit. THought it looked neat.

Question for you....... Do any of the trailer owners tip you when you haul a trailer for them? Or do you usually just work specifically through dealers?

Tips would be nice! Nope we just haul direct from manufacturer to dealership.

greenenvy1, are you required to follow the DOT rules for hours of driving like truckers do? What about when you run empty? I see you guys going around Chicago all the time, even in the worst weather.

Really cool once you lower the bed down. Not much "living" space IMHO.

Sitting in a hotel in Clearwater, MN so I'll post up the details on last trailer today. Next i am heading out to LLoydminister, Sk with a Coachman 5er

Took a 2014 Jayco Jayflight 28BHBE to Winnipeg. Dealer is having a show next weekend and they really wanted this model for the show they said. Nice unit. Towed really well. I find these "lightweight" trailers are usually worse than the larger units when it comes to road manners, but this one was decent. Pics 2 and 3 are from the truck wash bay that they said i could not fit in lol. I think the bay way 65 ft long.
Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs) 6,495
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs) 700
Exterior Length 33' 3"
Exterior Width 96"

I don't suppose you were in South Carolina this week. Waiting for our Jay Flight 28BHBE, was dropped at the dealer yesterday, and, believe it or not, it was the wrong unit. (fiberglass instead of aluminum was the first hint). Apparently the VIN was almost the same as our unit, and somehow they dragged the wrong unit all the way down here. I guess he's towing it all the way back to Indiana, then turning around to bring us the right trailer.

Expensive mistake, wonder who screwed up, thought you'd like the story. I guess it pays to double check everything before hitting the road. We're thinking that next Tuesday might be the day (it's Saturday, March 8 today)
