    Here it is hooked up after the first bath, I don't think I will have any problems towing it.

    Looks nice... might be the angle of the drive, but the trailer looks nose high when hitched up... if so.. you'll want to get a larger drop on your hitch to get the trailer as level as possible. Trailer being slightly nose down is ok if you can't get it level..

    Looks OK to me but by the time the bed of the truck is packed with gear and firewood it should be just perfect.

    Thanks everyone.

    Nose up will be fixed shortly with a spring over conversion, have not even pulled it out of the driveway yet, Previous owner delivered it.

    Going to set it up in the driveway tonight and take care of a couple of things and start packing with the essentials.

    Will be needing help with appliances so the questions will be coming.

    Whats involved in the spring over conversion? And is it just to gain clearance for boondocking? I'm thinking this is something I may need to do to my Shenandoah.

    The spring over consists of changing the axle portion from on top of the springs to under the spring. This gained me about 5.5" of lift.

    I did it to gain access to several of our private camp sites and to compensate for the difference in height of our TV and pup.

    Rather than buy another drop hitch (already have a 6" drop) I decided to do a spring over to gain some ground clearance. When I got under our pup for inspection it was apparent that the previous owner had drug it over something so I decided to lift it.

    Is it hard to do? What all is involved? Is there a tutorial somewhere? Thanks!

    I was lucky and able to use the shop (forklift) at work, not that hard to do. I got my kit from Etrailer.com and it has everything you need.

    Search YouTube for trailer spring over conversion.

    The biggest thing is take your time.
