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.

All hours logged just like the real truckers lol. Weather has sucked this winter, no doubt about that.
