Thanks for the responses folks.

Anyone use one of these with a WDH?

What is your Tow Vehicle?

We tow our with a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse. It tow really well, considering its a CUV/SUV. I'm very happy with the trailer/tow vehicle setup. I use a Reese WDH and a friction sway control. That is what was included when I bought the unit. I'm happy with it, other than the noise/groaning of the friction sway control.

That's good to hear, my vehicle is a VW Touareg, the wheelbase is 6 inches shorter than yours and that is my biggest concern, the wheelbase. However the truck weighs 5500lbs and can tow 7700lbs with a max tongue weight of 770lbs. I also know people that tow 27ft airstreams with these but I think they are crazy + they have air suspension which I am sure helps. I only have steel springs.

What specs are your Reese WDH? (max tow weight, etc.)

Well. our X213 is now in the driveway and boy......it is larger than I thought. We absolutely love this trailer and can hardly wait to go camping. One trip will be in June for our 30th Wedding anniversary for sure.....but we are talking about a trip in May now....never would have considered it in our PUP....It was so sad to see it go with all the memories we had with it.....I have been really going over our new TT and finding all sorts of cool features, such as the digital TV antenna on the roof. I thought that it was analog and that would be useless in Canada. Bot do I have a lot of manuals to read

Dual 6V batteries on Jay Feather 213

I am thinking about adding two 6v golf cart batteries to my Jay Feather 213. My only concern is the limited space on the hitch, especially when compared to many other TT. I was wondering if anyone had such a setup on the same TT that they could post a photo or two of.

Just looking at that area in front of the propane tanks, it seems like it would impossible to fit two.

I am thinking of doing the same thing and it is really tight. I think I can make it fit but I might have to go to the soft propane cover to do it. I know a RV mechanic that sells the battery box for the conversion so I am going to measure it when I am at work tomorrow. I might have to fabricate a plate to replace the existing battery mount. I will let you know how that works out.

Well, I borrowed the battery box from my my friend Al at Al's RV to see if I can make it work. I don't think that I can fit the box on....without doing some custom fabrication.....I think that I will wait until after the camping season is over
