Please be careful. Nice you can be home for Christmas.
I thought about you last week. A family pulled in with an Inferno - 43' and 2600 lb pin.

THanks for the well wishes! 43' toyhauler??? NOpe but the 5er I delivered yesterday was 39' 1" 12,236 lbs empty.
Home yesterday after a short little 8200 KMS trip. I'll get some pics up asap. BE careful on the roads out there, seems to be a lot of idiot drivers already this winter.

Took a third one of these to Brandon, Manitoba. 2014 Heartland RV Prowler P289 Unloaded weight approx. 8500 Lbs, 30'0" in length. Heartland does not have all the specs on their site for some reason. Towed decent even in the snow I encountered.

Then a 2014 Coachman Chaparral Brookstone 355 RL. Nice higher end 5er. Towed really well just like all the heavy 5ers do. Give me one of these anyday especially in the snow. A bumper pull in the snow just pushes the truck around, the 5er will pivot over the truck axle and not really affect the truck with every little fishtail of the trailer.
Pin weigth 2330 lbs
shipping weight 12, 239 lbs according to invoice
length 38'1" according to invoice


The day I left for this trip I put 6 new Firestone TransForce ATs on and they perform very well in the snow. 8500 ish KMS on them now.

Moved 5 of these Crossroads Hampton park models to our storage yard then hooked onto my last trailer for 2013! Of course it was a park model....
2014 Crossroads Hampton HT380FD
shipping weight was 19, 929 lbs and 40'10" in length
saw a lot of freezing rain in Michigan and lost count of the cars in the ditch. Glad they stayed out of my way ha ha!
Took a pic of the park models at the Crossroads yard. Keep in mind this is one of 3 yards and in these pics they are parked 2 deep. One pic is done in panoramic on my cell phone so not sure how it will turn out.
