Heated seats are one of the things my wife loved.

As for towing, backing, and turning.. that's all practice. It's just like any other trailer, just on a much larger scale. With that, everything is amplified. The biggest tip I have, is only do what your comfortable with. If you don't like the looks of it, DON'T DO IT! You can always find something else.

My favorite spot at a local lake is set back from the lake, however it's extremely easy to get into with our monster. I know I can get into others, but it's not worth the hassle at this point.

It won't take long to adjust. I can get the rear tires pretty much anywhere I want now. Yesterday I was able to put both of my dumps right next to a curb to prevent my sewer hose from drooping. Doesn't sound like much until you see the turn involved in getting into that dump.

The dealer showed me how to hook it up and unhook it. Most of what he told me I learned from videos on Youtube however. It's really different when you see it for yourself though. Personally, it's easier than hooking up a normal trailer (Assuming you don't have a backup camera).

I did test on several terrains how much turning I could get out of my truck. I figured out quickly that going forward I couldn't turn into the cap as well (My truck won't turn sharp enough). I'm not using a slider with a short bed, so that was more of an issue for me. It's really good to know your limits however.

This is as far as I can turn into it:

We're still trying to figure out everything we want to put in it. The hardest part now is deciding where to go..

We have a 2015 Reflection and love it. A few issues were quickly resolved. GD has been responsive even after the warranty expired.
