My 11 years of experience with Good Sam does not verify your experience.

Thanks you for sharing your experiences. Picking up my Eagle 321 RLTS Friday, so I wanted to hear what the veterans had to say. This will be my first camper but I have pulled my parents 320 RLDS in the past so I have a little experience with some things.

How does your truck do with the Companion hitch and short bed while pulling the 351 RLTS? I have a 2007 Sierra Classic 2500HD CCSB 4X4 with Duramax and Companion hitch and will picking up my 321 RLTS Friday.

One time I had two flats within 20 miles. I had no choice but to call my roadside service. The time from call to back on the road was 4 hours.
My only question is how many cold ones waiting that 4 hrs.

The scissor jack in the TV will work just fine on the frame of the trailer - as proven...BUT my tire-iron won't. Had to buy one that would fit the trailer's nuts. BCAA RV (AAA, Canadian style) is a great insurance policy "just-in-case"... I also ensure there's ALWAYS cold beer in the fridge, "just-in-case"!!

Your RV will probably come with 1 year roadside assistance... mine did right from Jayco...

I carry a Trailer Aid ramp as first choice, 10 ton bottle jack and chocks as second, and Good Sam Roadside Assistance as third choice. I can almost always change a tire with the Trailer Aid much faster than GS can get someone there, and the GSRA is only useful if you are not in a cell phone dead area, or if the temp and humidity are both in the high 90's. Cold lemonade and a TA are my best solutions.

Trailer Aid, 12 ton bottle jack, 12V compressor, spare tire and a GSRA card. Knock on wood, I haven't had to test this yet but I check cold air pressure and torque lug nuts at each CG along the way. Tires are also balanced, which I think helps the ride too.

I forgot to mention that we also carry an air tank in the pickup box with 120lbs in it, instead of a compressor. Either one works fine - just a personal choice.
