Good looking rig and no apologies needed for the pictures - we're all kinda picture book motivated. Let me know if you're gonna post on the other site - always entertaining reading input from the bigger is minimum bunch :-)

Nice. Do you not have clearance issues with the small box and the regular pin box? I had to go with the sidewinder for mine

The lines on your parking pad! I'm so stealing that. That's much better than my 4th block to the right on the retaining wall method.
Beautiful 5er!

Why doesn't Jayco do a lighter color on the front caps to help with heat in the summer?

Thanks for the pictures!
My new 2015 28.5 BHDS is due in a couple of days and I have not been able to see any pics of the interior, etc. Hope my interior is the same as yours.
Enjoy!

Thanks for the compliment. And nope, I'm good. I am at no liberty to convince anyone that my set up is working for me. Those RV-Net guys can be a real pain, if you know what I mean.

Absolutely NOT! I took a really good close up picture showing the clearance I have with the truck bed rail. I have a minimum of about 9 inches. Works perfectly good even when backing over bumps.

Thank you. I have a little confession to make. When it comes to backing in a trailer, I am not too savvy for the task. It usually requires me about 2-3 attempts to completely align the trailer the way it should be. Thatís why I introduced the pavement marking tape on my pad. Extremely durable, aluminum foil self adhesive product. They are light-reflective at night and with the tape, I only back in once.

Also, youíll realize that my pad is extra long. I did this on purpose just in case I need to hook up my TV letís say a night in advance. This way, I can simply leave it hooked up to the trailer, close the pad entrance gate until the next day when I am about to take off. It also works great when I have to pull into the pad and I donít have enough time to unhook everything. I can leave the TV unattended to for as long as I need before I park it into the house garage.

I was more wondering about when you take a sharp corner if you have any clearance issues with the back window of the truck
