Quick 7 day trip from home to Winnipeg, Manitoba and back...8000 kms.
First unit was a 2015 Coachman Catalina 303 RLS. Very spacious floor plan and towed awesome. This was my fourth unit that was under 7000 lbs...i knew a park model was in my future. Met up with another driver headed to the same destination with a Coachman Freedom Express V nose so we ran out to Winnipeg together.
Hitch Weight 720 lbs. (327 kg)
Base Weight 6,710 lbs. (3,044 kg)
Exterior Length 33' 11" (10.3 m)

Then finally a park model as i predicted. 2014 Hampton 380FD. Was not a very fun unit to tow. Saw some significant wind and snow an the way through northern Quebec and New Brunswick. Think i blew a front shock on this trip as well so that didn't help the ride. Pic # 2 is parked beside the guy i travelled with. He had a smaller Coachman unit. Gives you an idea of the difference in size with a park model.
Dry Weight: 11602
Hitch Weight: 1872
Exterior Length: 40'10"
Exterior Height (with A/C): 12'8"

Janesville is pretty close to us here in SE Wisconsin. I went to college at Whitewater which is right next to Janesville. Safe travels!

greenenvy1....what a great thread. I just read the whole thing. I love driving myself but the winter driving you do is crazy. I know the roads that you drive on a lot.....the roads get a lot of snow and ice. I went sideways at 60mph on the road from Portal to Minot and I'm sure that you have likely had some white knuckle driving.

Be careful and stay safe and continue with this thread as I must say I really enjoyed it. Love the Pic of your stop at Corner gas. I worked just down the road in Wilcox for 6 years before moving to Regina this past year.
