That is excellent. That is what I have to keep telling myself. I can't help it, but when I look at that monster, it looks like a semi. That is why I have always avoided them. Seems like I should have to go to trucking school in order to drive it. I feel like someone just handed me the keys to a Peterbilt with a tandem trailer and told me to make their run to the coast. I need to just keep telling myself it is just a funny looking travel trailer.

Thank you.

I know how you feel, Bee. We went from 24' to 30' and 4400# to 12700#. It has been quite a change and not without its drama. I'm getting the hang of it and wouldn't go back!
My tow tip is TURN WIDE (jus like an 18-wheeler). The 5th will turn the corner tighter than the TV. If you're too close to the curb in a right turn the 5th will climb over the curb, if there's a light pole, fireplug or mailbox too it can get ugly real quick.
If I'm unsure about my clearance I get out and check, and apologize to folks I inconvenience.
Got myself into a tight spot and the bride was out trying to direct traffic while I was backing out, woman rolls window down and says, "if you'd just pull forward I could get by".
The bride was really hot when she climbed back in.
