Oh o.k. With the super short bed trucks, this problem is taken of by a SuperGlide Hitch.

A pretty expensive and heavy hitch but it is the only way to go. I have one of those.

For more info, look at the video in the link below;

Congrats! I really like the look of the new windows. That thing is beautiful! I love my 2014, but I am jealous of a few of your upgrades! The new lighting in the living room with the skylight is a very nice touch. The new backsplash is a nice touich too.

I do have a question for you though. How heavy are you? Mine was 8,727 lbs before loading anything in the camper. I'm just wondering what your sticker says on the side of the camper. I hear those double pane windows add a fair amount of weight. My camper will be going by the scales when I head out this Thursday so I can see exactly where I am now that it is loaded.

Enjoy the new camper!

Okie,
Thanks for the prompt PM response.

So yeah, mine came delivered at 8,805lbs. Initially, I had guesstimated to be at around 9,200lbs just because of the thermal pane windows. However, it appears that frameless feature does help quite a bit with reducing the overall weight. By the way, the new windows are SUPER AWESOME! Pictures don't do justice. You gotta see them in person. All my neighbors are intrigued. Lol
