Yes, the AF 30U has been a great trailer for us. It is a solid, well built unit and also very heavy. Unfortunately we have outgrown the floorplan and so we have a 2017 355MBQS on order, which we are very excited to take delivery of in about eight weeks.

The tanks are made for that load, and the tanks are well supported (unlike our Winnebago, which only had one small strap on the black tank... the snap broke... yuk).

We dump and flush them as often as we can, and keep a couple of inches of "slosh" water in them at all times.

The fresh water tank stays full at all times... rather have it and not need it, etc., etc.

The difference in mileage between running with a full tank and an empty tank is so small, as to be insignificant. Weight figures very little in mileage, the real hit to MPG comes from the RPM's needed to push that brick through the air. We drive by the RPM's (about 1,900 to 2,100) to get about 11.2 MPG.

Pushing (or Pulling) a brick through the air, boy if that isn't a real statement. Imagine moving your anchored stick built house down the highway. Mileage is probably not a top thing to consider. We are very fortunate these things get any mileage.

You will seldom see glowing comments on any forum. I usually look for things that people have repaired, issues found etc. I never go on a forum to lookup what great things people are saying. Those go mostly unheard. Had several different units over the years. Our 2016 redhawk has been issue free and a pleasure to drive. Their support has been superb, but that is just me. I am sure someone else can tell a horor story. Best of luck in the future. Choices are amazing.
