Yep my phone wouldn’t allow me to post pics on the portal. But kath just got a new phone and it works on hers
Just picked up a new Jayco JayFlight 195RB Baja about an hour ago. I need to adjust the hitch as the frame alone is 6.25" low in the front compared to the back. Thinking about an Andersen hitch as I only have WD and no sway. The old Beast didn't need.
Curious about Anderson myself. I have read the reviews but would like to talk to someone who has one. They seem so much quicker to use than my E2
I have an equalizer, looks similer to the e2, really no problems with it. It only takes a few minutes? Do you have an ellectric toung jack?
My best friend has the Equalizer and likes it, other than it's noisy. The one I have is a Pro Series (made by the parent company of Reese) trunion type. This is a manual crank that is too short. They just barely bring the coupler level, but not enough to get over the ball so you have to use something. I have 4 sets of Lynx Levelers.
Congratulations! FWIW, I use a Curt TruTrack WDH. Design is similar to the Equalizer but it was on sale about $250 less. Works like a champ.
We moved over to a travel trailer in August of last year. It's a 2011 Forest River SP295 bunk house. We've used it a few times and it fits our current needs nicely. Lots of room for the 3 kids without feeling that we are on top of each other. I no longer have to banish them to opposite bunkends to keep the peace. We'll miss our popup and will probably come back to one eventually.
Very nice good luck with it! Whats the weight on that?
Specifications say it's about 5100lbs dry weight. With gear, batteries etc I figure I'm close to 6500lbs. My 2010 F150 tows it alright. I don't know the numbers off the sticker, I'll have to double check in the spring.
We started out with a tent, had pop ups in the past. We were again tent camping a few years ago and had one particular trip to SD where we were unwilling participants in a deluge after that trip we decided to buy a TT (Jayco) this time. We have had this one out about 20 trips. No problems and have it pretty well dialed in. To make a long story short...My husband works too much for us to camp as much as I'd like and needs the truck for work. Sooooo we just bought a little pup that my car can tow. Its a work in progress...
Nice rig!! Happy trails. We have a 212QBW. Very happy with it. Just the right size for the two of us and one or two of the Grands.
Beautiful TT. Have big fun. I can't wait to get out again!! Spring can't get here soon enough!
after setting for a year checking her out and no leaks or problems.. ready for camping!!!!!
So I sprung for the Andersen and installed it last weekend. I'm not sure it's any faster to make a difference. Plus it depends if you leave everything attached. I would be worried about someone taking everything. Still have to jack up the trailer/truck to attach. All of the pin holes (both the draw bar and the triangle plate to couple) have tight tolerances. Sometimes a dead blow sand hammer give a little help (don't use the hammer on the triangle plate to turn it though).
I just bought air bags with the onboard compressor and the remote with three presets. My hope is a couple things, I can take that little bit of sag i still have even with my WDH and also any bucking out, but also instead of using the tongue jack i can use the air bags to lift the rear and hook up my WDH easier. Then once i know how much air to have in them to do this i can just have that as one of my pre sets. Once i am all hooked i can then hit my pre set for towing and they will deflate to that pressure and the third will be 5lbs normal non towing.
The 212QB is the model we are looking at. Did you buy new? what year? How long have you had it? Does it feel tight at all in the living area, since it has no slide? Thanks!
