Nice looking rig. Have you ever tried it without the weight distributing hitch?

No not yet, but I believe that it will be fine without it also. It does pull nice with the bigger truck though.

That's why I was asking. You have the payload to easily handle the hitch weight and as it sits in your picture, the truck is high in the back and the trailer is nose up. Nose down is more stable for sway prevention.
My trailer is the same size and I love not having to deal with WD. Give it a try.

picked up the new TT yesterday

Picked up the new Keystone Outback yesterday from Flagg RV in West

Boylston yesterday and drove it back. flagg did a great job prepping the

TT, and secondly the walk thru lasted roughly 2 hourd. Everyone was

very helpful, the mechanics stopped by several making sure we were

all set to leave. I've read here that some do not like an equalizer hitch,

i drove 26 miles with it and my 2014 ram 1500 was smooth sailing.

i realize its not 1500 miles, i'll let you know sometime in late August

as we have planned a trip down south.

its a keystone 316rl diamond package.

Jim

[QUOTE=MFTIC;2543259]Just this past weekend

Nice set up. My little brother and I have a similar set up. We ride KTM's 200XCW and 105SX and shack up in a 19 foot Keystone Hideout. We camp almost every weekend at the many dirt bike camps around BC

Most of the RV BIKERS tow 30foot units and sport street rides.

Thanks. Don't tell the wife since she thinks i bought this for her and I. In reality I'm hoping to get more riding in
Wasn't that bad of a fit for 3 guys. Obviously I got the plush bed one guy on the floor and one on the fold down dinette. Sat around at night drinking inside since we where all too lazy to start a fire outside I wasn't about to let them use the shower/toilet though. Not going to clean up that much after those guys. Bathed in the crick. Only one incident of a float-away-sock. Wasn't going to chase after it buck naked
