ORV Anniversary Series trailers

I was just on YouTube looking for something else, and found this new video from ORV. They are showing off their Anniversary Series trailers. Not many details on floorplans, but there is a walk through on a Blackstone 250RDS.

I love the auto leveling! I hope that is an option on future units.

We had the choice a few weeks back when we bought our new 2020 titanium 280rks. We didnít want to wait to order and found a perfect fully loaded titanium so we bought it. The anniversary series is an awesome value though. I wish we got the leveling and I really want the holes to the dump valves. I may have to break out my hole saw.

Looks like a great TT. Sadly, the gap between what mine is worth and what the new ones cost is getting wider.

I was told auto-leveling will be standard on titanium going forward. Electric stabilizers standard on other.

Is it side to side and front to back leveling?

Other than the auto leveling and new decals.....where are the significant changes?

Nice they dumped the old converter charger from wfco.

Other than that..my mods are a lot like this trailer..only itís a 2013.
They could have added a built in good quality built in surge protector with reverse polarity, high and low voltage protection...especially given most of the electronics ie mobile phones, computers, tablets etc are very very frequency, voltage sensitive.

Nice unit..it is still a trailer and a trailer is a trailer is a trailer...and I guarantee we will hear from someone on the forum that their anniversary ORV trailer has issues...

Coops

Here is the aftermarket version and yes it does FB and SS leveling. Each jack can support 3000lbs so four can handle 12000 lbs.

Not sure it is worth 3K plus installation.

Very interesting! We just ordered a 2020 Black Stone 280KVS Titanium -- a new floorplan. I need to touch base with our dealer to see if the Lippert Ground Control TT Auto Leveling will be included.

Also very curious to see what other floorplan will be available.

I downloaded the owners manual for the Ground Control system. Is says that "The leveling system should only be operated under the following conditions: 1) Make sure the trailer is parked on solid and level ground. The locations should also be free of surface depression and moisture...".


That doesn't sound like most places I've parked a trailer or motorhome. If the parking spot is level, why do I need a power leveling system? I wonder how the system works in the real world.

I really like the KISS system,,, Keep It Simple, Stupid. If it can go wrong, it will. The self leveling is great, when and where it works. My budget doesn't go that high.

Our dealer confirmed that the new 2020 Titanium models will also include the Auto Leveling System.

Still waiting to hear what other models are included in the "Anniversary Series".

Many RV MFG's are using the LCI leveling system. Jayco has had it on several of their TT models for a dew years.

https://rvbusiness.com/thor-towable-...eling-systems/

No different than 4-6 pt leveling on a 5th wheel. I think the need to be level is a CYA for LCI. Kinda like don't jack up the TT using the axles to change a flat.

We camp a lot and for the most part we're only 0-4" out of level max. Throwing a few blocks under the jacks would be a lot easier than backing up on blocks or even Beach Lane levelers like I have.

How about mounting a electric tongue jack at each corner.
