We tow a 2012 jayco 228 dry weight 4000# with our 2014 4 runner. It handles it very well.

This sounds more like a coating that gets applied rather than a wax if you read the application instructions. I don't think I would try it on a newer trailer that still has a good finish, looks like...

We have stayed in some sites that have the pedestal way up at the front and I have needed to use an extension. I bought a 25ft 30 amp extension so I can still plug into 30 amp power. It is something...

We had them put a tub surround in for us at the factory. It cost us $250 but we wanted a place to put shampoo and soap and also felt it would be easier to keep clean. I'm glad we did it as I had the...

I thought about that....bought a new trailer before I got around to doing it. I will almost guarantee it will work, and it will make the mattresses last longer.
