Is your TV a 3/4? That's a lot of trailer for 1/2 ton.

It is... F250 3/4 Ton 6.2 Gasser. Had plenty of engine, as I have read you gotta get the revs up on that engine but it did well.

After looking at the hitch today some more I know for sure it did not have enough weight distributed. We loaded all our stuff into the camper today and I will load the truck up this week as close to full weight (as we would be when going on trips) as possible and adjust correctly.

I had a 10k with our X19H and Expedition EL for 3 yrs so I do have experience with this style hitch but need to learn it with our new TV and TT.

Or son is 10... we learned a long time ago to leave him at home, in his case his Grandparents, whenever going to do anything like this. He went on the initial visits but not for a PDI where it takes a while and concentration is needed.

The Trailer was delivered to the dealer on 2/19, 3 months after ordering, luckily everything was correct on the order especially since I deleted and added some items. I would check in with my salesmen every couple weeks starting about mid January. The day it showed up he texted me photos of it and that evening I went to take a quick look, even though it was almost dark, to confirm they did the special order items I did. We chose to wait until 3/19 to pick it up as the timing was right for us as I was taking this coming week off for Spring Break so had time to get it home and all setup, we will take our first weekend trip this coming weekend then one every month on out.

There is a Prep and Delivery lot to the East of the Main Lot, that is where the camper was for the PDI/Demo. We pulled out of there and crossed over Fairbanks and took some side streets to get back to where we could head the direction we wanted to go which was ultimately on 17-92 down the the 408 East. Heading to Jacksonville you get the fun of driving on I-4 North. It was not to bad, other than towing a 33 Ft Trailer for the first time thru some narrow streets, just took my time and tried to stay away from the curbs when turning, I can tell you the streets to take for an easy trip back to I-4 if you would like.

Then a few days later when my loan disburses, I can go back down to pick it up. I was thinking I'll grab the forms after the PDI and not bring the kids so we can focus on the PDI.
Not sure why you couldn't do it all the same day... just don't sign anything until you are happy with the unit. I brought my own Draft from our Credit Union plus a Certified Check for the Balance.

Other than helping mount the brackets... Not to helpful. I was already experienced with this hitch but their prep lot is not level and not conducive to setting it up correctly, they did not even mention to me "hey... you know your setup is not right", never once said you should do the measurement tests to make sure your good, that was OK with me but for someone who did not know the difference that would not be good. I actually pulled out of their lot and crossed over Fairbanks and stopped on a wide side street to add Air to the Bags and this is when I knew the WDH was not quite right but would do to get us home running light.

Some quick pics including her home I had to squeeze in to... actually was not to bad, just almost 3 ft higher and 13 Ft longer than my X19H was but width wise the same, though I was worried I could fit it in there and almost did not get this model because of that, in the end I was able to do it on the first shot. Trailer makes my truck look like a toy...

I also noticed not only did I get all Black Shrouds on the Top they installed Tinted Skylight and Bathroom vent covers, all others I had seen before were clear/white. I like how they look... I also got a couple comments from people at the dealer about not having the "Swoosh" Graphics on it... they definitely liked it and commented on how clean it looked.

More pics... tucked away. I have 30 Amp Power, Water and Sewer Hook up right where it sits so I am able to run all systems if need be and will keep a De-Humidifier going at all times as I did in my X19H.

Going through some old pics I found some of our X19H parked... new one is JUST a little bit larger

Old Pics in the Summer... new Pics in the Winter so looks dingier. I also miss my LR3, if I would have had a 3 Car garage I would have kept it.

Somehow my rig got MUCH larger !!

Haha! I love it!!! I'll keep our conversation to the PM's so I can come back and reference all your awesome advise in one spot.

But thanks for sharing your pictures and specially the throwback ones. Any plans for modifications to the inside of it?
