Jason, thanks. I'll have to double-check but I think mine are at 59". What hitch are you using?

Congrats!! Ordered the same camper last month, can't wait!

What did you go with for a hitch? And do you like it so far?

I have an older Hidden hitch 18k that I got with our old 5th wheel that works great. I haven't had any issues with the hitch so decided to keep it and try it out with the new camper. I did get the revolution pin box and have to get that working yet but I was still able to make a pretty sharp turn without the Revolution working.

By the way I love it, it is everything I was hoping it would be

Congrats! Looks fantastic! We're chomping at the bit ourselves but are early in the process with an ETA of 21/22 April! It's like being a kid in November and waiting for Christmas!

Congrats!!. We have the same one. Picked it up last October, towed it home, and it's been sitting all winter. The last few weeks here in MA have been pretty good. I've been going out as much as possible to open up slides, and awning. Today I've been shopping on Amazon to get a cart together for some new stuff.

LOL, be Careful. My 'cart' on Amazon is up to about $800+ already!

Looking at your second picture it looks like your a bit nose-low. Which, is good in a way. I'm assuming you'll try to level your rig with pin box and hitch adjustments? I wished ours was more nose low than nose high. Nonetheless, we love our 29.5 and looking forward spend more nights camping! Congratulations!

In the second picture the truck is sitting in a dip so it looks like it is not level , but the first picture shows it is pretty good, they have the legs just off the ground to see how it sat.

The truck did an awesome job pulling it home 50 miles from the dealer, and we got to test the brakes out. We had just left the dealer got about 3 miles on the highway when traffic came to a dead stop so we came to hard stop and almost got rear ended by a little car, the DW almost became the angry wife. But all was ok and we finished our trip home with no issues the rest of the way home.

Over the weekend we worked on getting all of our stuff in the camper and organized and I can't believe how much storage is in this camper. We have everything from our last camper in there and still have cabinets and storage spots that are empty. Which is a good issue to have I guess. Now we have to let the weather warm up a little so we can un-winterize it and go use it.

Colerain RV in Ohio. Back in Nov when the Wife & I decided this is the model we wanted, they gave us the Best pricing, by-far over anyone else. Enough that I don't mind the 900 mile drive to go get it.
Can't wait!
