Yes it was a rather lengthy one. Towed awesome though. Really solid on the road and pulled great.

Towed this one back this time 2013 Puma 31DBTS. Towed really well considering the last 600 miles was in a blizzard. Nothing like breaking traction at 30mph going uphill towing. Mileage suffered due to the wind and horrible road conditions. Added a pic of the road conditions just for fun.

Length 35'8"
Width 8'0"
Height 11'1"
Hitch Weight 879 lbs
Dry Weight 8,137 lbs

that leg of the trip took 3 hours longer than usual. It was less than awesome I'll say that.

That trailer will need a good cleaning by the dealer! Looks like fun towing in the snow (not!).

Thanks for the replies guys,
I always liked the front kitchen floorplans but told the wife I would not want one due to heavy tonque weight. BUt having a one ton truck makes that easy and the best of the trailers I've towed to date. My next personal trailer will be a FK and I'll never own a tow vehicle smaller than this. The stability and ease of towing takes a lot of stress out of the trip. Even in the snow storm I felt more or less "planted" on the road.
