'New' HTT in the family.

Brought this one home yesterday. 2004 Aerolite Cub 236. We downsized from a 26' bunkhouse TT, and so far couldn't be happier. My tow vehicle is getting on in miles and the TT was pushing it towards the limit at ~6500lbs. GVWR on the HTT is only 4840 so that should help a lot, plus it is much lower profile. I don't even need a WDH with the HTT. Kids are happy and the wife loves the slideout.

Interior pics are from the seller, I'll get more later once we get it cleaned up and loaded up.









In comparison:

I like it. It looks like a great way to have a nice roomy home away from home!

Enjoy

Wow I just sold my 05' Aerolite #236 back in March. Great floorplan. We bought the 2013 Aerolite 232E (hybrid). The 232 was like the first new floorplan on about 3-4 years from Aerolite in a hybrid

The 2013 are 7" taller, gray exterior, black trim and frameless smoked glass windows.

Superslif - when I was researching the HTT I ran across your posts and photo album, which sold it for the wife. Thanks!

The one difference between the 04's & 05's were the 04' was 7-1/2' wide, in 05' they went to 8' wide.

Did you do anything to hold the slide in tight while travelling? I noticed the top of ours was moving in/out about 1/2" while bringing it home.

see about ordering "transit bars". my Roo 23SS came with them. most RVs with slideouts, have them as a standard item.

We have a pair of aluminum bars with rubber feet on both ends, PO said they were to support the couch flip if you have a 'large' person sleeping there. I test fit them between the slide and the wall and they fit if you get them in just right. May try that and see what happens.

that's exactly what transit bars are. you turn them to extend them in between the slide's frame and the wall of the trailer.
ours has stickers where to place the bars.
the PO is wrong and didn't have a clue what they are for.
