Hi There 19H Owners

Hi everyone; new to the forum - purchased 19H late last season and haven't picked it up yet at the dealer. Are there any tips or thoughts on the 19H you could share before we do our first trip ? I'm towing with a 4.6 Eddie Bauer Explorer, sway bar and level bar equiped. We have enjoyed the trailer experience for 10yrs plus now and just upgraded from a smaller hybrid. Any comments would be great. Thanks so much. Love the forum so far.

Hi Alex19H... welcome to the JOF. Hang in there a bit and I am confident that others with your model trailer will pipe in. Glad to have you here.

Thanks Quahog for the welcome. Looking forward to sharing thoughts and experiences with everyone on the forum. We bought a new 2011 last season in late October and up to this point was finding it not too bad in waiting until the season begins, but after reading about all the forum users out there that are missing there units so much it has got me thinking and I'm feeling it now as well. Come on spring and the camping season !!!!!!!!

Welcome and enjoy the trailer. I also tow with a 4.6 Explorer. My trailer is lighter and shorter than yours, but I think you will be ok.

Come Spring, this will all seem like a bad memory. You'll be having a blast and you won't even remember having to wait for the nicer weather.

Welcome, I have a 2011 19H as well. Can't think of special anything to tell you. We love it, coming from a 1981 tent trailer it was a hell of a step up. I pull with a 3.7 litre colorado.

Thanks chillywilly , glad you love your trailer , I'm confident I will as well. If you're equipped with an electric awning just wondering how you like it? Also how have you found the trailer for storage ? Thanks

The awning is good. nice to just push a button to wind up if it gets stormy at nite. If you get a good rain, do not stand under the end of it or you will get a 3 gallon cold shower. Storage is good, the family and pets don't go without anything I feel. We bring the basics and then some, but I try to keep the weight down.
