That my opinion as well. Iíll post up a pick with the Timbrens next time I hook up. Looks the same. Still level except the Timbrens are engaged so a firmer(in a good way) ride. Without, it worked, but this is better.

Body roll is back to where it was with my lighter trailer.

Have a trip in 10 days to a state park just about 2hrs away. Just a night to enjoy/nitpick the trailer before I make my first warranty appt.

I think this trailer is easier to back than my HT I previously owned. Maybe itís the longer distance from wheels to kingpin. It reacts quicker to my inputs.

I need to ask, how do you all deal with the stove top vent? On my old trailer Iíd keep it closed unless we were going to need it. This one was installed by a giant. I need a ladder to get to it. Seriously. I need a full size ladder to get to it.


I laughed when I looked up at the vent the first time I got my trailer. Bought a 4 step aluminum ladder, costco brand at Walmart. Probably only weighs 4 lbs and fits in my basement.

I also marked the stick at measurement points for slide-outs. Just use a silver permanent marker on the black handle. I can hold the stick against the wall and use it as a measure before extending slides.

I use it for the love bug cleaning pads also

And to attach a soft brush for washing camper.

Where is the fresh water tank on this thing. Is it over the axles or behind them?

Fresh water is right behind the rear axle. Kitchen grey tank is over front axle slightly. black tank in front of it. Grey tank for bathroom is under basement storage. Just cleaned up the rats nest of wiring under ours and added more insulation from basement to rear of trailer.

Thanks. Surprised they put it there. Seems if you fill it up, youíd some adverse towing characteristics.

That's the way to go Big1............I bought our 2017 RAM 3500 Big Horn in May, 2018. It was the last 2017 the dealer had and they wanted it to go! It is fully loaded with all the things we wanted. It listed for $69,950 and we got it for $51,200. Dealers have to get rid of those leftovers before they can give decent discounts on the newer model year.
