The short answer is yes, depends on your tow bar, my roadmaster all terrain required a 6" drop for my mazda. In your case level would be best, however a 4-6 " difference is the maximum i would accept. So 22" - 12" = 10" a 6" drop should do it. Go too low and it will drag at every driveway in town. becareful when taking a driveway that drops quickly, when the rv nose drops the back end overhang pulls up and you can pick the car off the ground and damage your hitch tow bar and the tow car.

Good luck.

Hello Richard, I am trying to locate an OWNERS MANUAL for our National 2007 Seabreeze, model #8321. (Not the chassis manual or the owners guide), I tried to locate the business you referred to in your post but was unsuccessful. Do you, by any chance, have a phone number? Thank you. Peggy

The link below is for 05 models, this is also the same manual that was in my 07.
National RV manuals were only made for the model name and not by the floor plan model number.

Hi Richard, many thanks for your reply. On the first page of our OWNERS GUIDE there is an illustration of 2 booklets: 1 called OWNERS GUIDE SUPPLEMENT SEABREEZE/SEABREEZE LX and a 2nd called OWNERS GUIDE SUPPLEMENT DOLPHIN/DOLPHIN LX and in small letters at the bottom of each booklet is the notation (2005 gasoline motorhomes) It is for this reason we believe there is a separate supplement for our SEABREEZE LX. It is not a Dolphin and not on a workhorse chassis but a ford, like yours. Our motorhome is exactly like yours a SEABREEZE LX #8321. We spoke with the dealer yesterday and there is a possibility they may find what we're looking for on their lot, but if they can't, would you be willing to copy your SUPPLEMENT, at our expense. We would be very grateful. Peggy

My left one was replaced by a body shop recently. It's a very common part and they picked it up locally without a problem.

I called them and they only manufactured the doors from 2000 till the end. Pre 2000 model years are not theirs.

I'm actually just thinking ahead in case of future issues. But kitchen accessories would be nice...

I'm new to the RV world and still trying to find good information sources.

Just as a matter of Info,I asked here about getting replacement cover for the door shock on my Tradewinds and it was suggested that I try a parts place in either Iowa or Ohio. I got hold of the guy and he had the part and it was off the same model as mine and in real good shape.$35 w/shipping.. It came and it was a POS and not a whole lot better than the one I already had.I'll go back thru my records and get the name and post it.Really ticked me off and he won't replace it.
