    Yeah, definitely not the place to save a buck.
    Just talked to a local dealer, and he recommend the trutrack, and the blue of sway pro. I think I'm going with the sway pro.

    I have the Blue Ox and am happy with it. Far quieter than most other trailers that pull in, plus you can pretty much jack knife the camper while backing and not damage it.

    Congratulations. Those are very well built units. We looked at a couple the last time we were at the RV Show.
    Enjoy!

    The poo tower of doom = the result of not using or keeping enough water in the black tank.......ie a build up of solids in a pile that can harden - so use water.....plenty of water...... and only dump the black tank when at least 2/3rds full.....

    You can also get one of those poo towers of doom if you go on the Dr Cheddar 100% cheese diet.

    Still sitting on the dealers lot waiting for the title to clear. My state (Massachusetts) is pretty particular on trailer / camper registrations.

    All I've really got is the listing photos.

    Congratulations! Someday we'll upgrade a bit from our HTT but not quite that big. Can you walk through the trailer with the slide in?

    This particular floor plan, mostly. I cannot easily access the Front bedroom. I'm just a bit to overwieght. :)

    We do have 100% access to the pantry, Fridge, storage containers, and Bike Storage (The bottom bunk flips up so you can store bikes there).

    But honestly, to roll the slide out is about 1 minute holding a button.. :)

    Blue ox makes a great WDH. Equalizer as well. I have a camco recurve and I really like it so far. No chains to mess with which is nice.

    One suggestion on the sewer hoses. I like the 10' section ones so I don't have to mess with 20' of hose if it's not needed. Also I would suggest getting x3 10' sections just because some CG put sewer drains in song me really stupid, far away spots. That's one thing you don't want to have not working lol.
