Sounds like yours was as babied as ours! We're heading out for our first weekend trip of the year this afternoon. Really looking forward to it!

It was my pleasure to help -- if I can do anything more, please let me know. I'm still learning the ropes with it, but I've managed to teach myself quite a bit!

Thats good you have a great weekend and I am sure you will, I cant say enough about mine. Did you you do anything to the suspension, I put a set of airbags front and rear and what a defference it made also put 4 Bilsten shocks it took the rocking from side to side completely away. Let us know how was you weekend have fun.

Everything is still original on ours, although I want to do some upgrades. I've heard a lot of good things about Bilsteins, and that's where I intend to start ... when I get to that.

As far as getting down the road, though, it's not terrible. Of course, it's never going to be a cornering machine, but on an interstate, it does great.

My biggest concern after this weekend is getting something installed to stabilize it while we're set up and living in it. My oldest daughter flops around a lot when she sleeps, and EVERYONE felt it this time. So that's my #1 priority before our next trip ... which is in 2 weeks. Not much time to investigate my options, but I'm sure I'll think of something.

Aside from that, though, I still love it.

I put 2 crank down jack behind the rear wheel they are rated for 7000lbs. and that took most of it away this was the only cheap way to go other than the hydraulic jack $4000.00 is to much for me. I think I paid $70.00 for both of them at www.etrailer.com

I've got a couple of old scissor jacks here that I'll try next weekend when we go out again. I put 'em under the back here in the driveway and my wife seems to think they made a difference, as do I. We'll just have to see what happens when we actually get the whole crew inside.

I agree the hydraulic jacks are too spendy ... lowest estimate I got was around $3500. Too rich for my blood!!!
