Nice Rig! I got the 2012 23B at the beginning of summer. We're 7 trips in and enjoying the journey.

Where I live in south-west Indiana it's about as flat as, say, Kansas! We are not planning any cross-country trips as most of our camp outs will be within 50 miles or so. If we were going down south or north, yes I would be concerned.

And yes we are enjoying the new X23B!!

Ans so far,
Well, it seems like you are ok, but watch your tranny temperature if you have a gauge. Are you using a WDH and sway control? I think I have gone the overboard route as I am towing ours with a a full size truck, but I wanted a truck - so it worked out.

Enjoy the camper. We are loving ours.

Will do Bud!!

Who knows..... when I retire in 3 to 4 years, (If the economy will let me), I may just get that really nice TV!! And I am a FORD man!

And yes, I didn't skimp on the WDH! It's the Equalizer WDH with integrated sway control. The other thing I want to do is replace the CURT brake control, that the dealer installed, for the Tekonsha P3 controller!
