Another consideration when choosing a trailer would be specifying one with a longer tongue so you can jackknife it as you turn tight without the hitch or corners of the trailer damaging either the trailer body or the rear cap on the coach while you are manouvering.

Palehorse, thanks for that, I had seen it before, but didn't save it, I like your floor tool box/tire storage, did you add it or have it factory? I'll have to look into that.
x2, like Tinman said on the extended tongue, I still have to be careful when backing, and I wish I would have added height

The spare tire in the floor was a option, along with the extra height, screw less sides, extended tongue, and some other things. MTI builds a really nice trailer!
