32bhds finally home!

We went and picked up the camper on Friday! It sure it nice! Truck had no trouble towing it up the hills here in northern PA. We camped in it last night. The kids had blast. I posted a pic, we will see if I did it right.

They removed the window in the bathroom door from out 2009. From the inside, I like the move, but from the outside, I like the looks of the window. It helps break the big white area up quite a bit. I do wish ours had those aluminum wheels, they look much better than our white steelies.

I would also like a window in the bathroom door to help break up the white side and let a little more natural light into the bathroom. Probably left it out as a cost saving measure to keep the prices competative. I too like the look of the aluminum wheels over the white steelies.

Glad to hear it, including the truck. I towed mine with my new truck for the first time on Friday. I think it did as good as my old 8.1 and 4.10.

I love the trailer towing mirrors that I installed on the truck! Made it much better to see.

How does this trailer tow? Does your 2500 have any issues? Are there plenty of places to take a trailer this size?

My 2500HD does well pulling it. I put a Reese Dual Cam 1500lb/15000lb WD hitch on it. The truck sits level and there was no bouncing or swaying. When I brought it home I had a very strong crosswind for part of the trip and then a head wind. I never had any sway and always felt in control. My 2500HD is a 6.0l gas engine. It is no Duramax but it held its own. I had no trouble climbing some long fairly steep hills.
It is a long camper but every place I have been or ever will go have spots that are big enough to hold it. I looked at a bunch of Pennsylvania's state parks last night and everyone I looked at had spots large enough. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
