Aw rite, Josh. Don't leave us hanging like that. What did you order? Plain or fancy or somewhere in between? And what will you tow with it?

you are going to love it.

I just got back from Phoenix, driving thru some pretty gusty winds. Only a few times did I notice what felt like a tug from the trailer. Normally I hardly feel the trailer there except when starting from a stop.

Thanks. I will. It will so much easier towing. I have a columbus 385bh and it is 42 feet long. The stability will be needed.

The mistake is in thinking you need to have a 29k trailer in the first place to enjoy your visit to the countryside. Amazing how many people pull travel trailers with 1/2 ton pickups and somehow manage to survive the deprivation with no permanent scarring.
