I have seen this question on just about every forum website, are you compiling a list for a survey?

Just did a little research on your trailer and it looks and sounds pretty sweet. Have a couple of questions. May I IM you or is it ok to ask here?

Have you had any problems with the wind? What type of trailer options come with your ML350? Did knowing about or knowing someone with a composite trailer help?
I'm sure it is a nice looking setup.
Mike

We wanted an Airstream but felt the Everlite was a better economic move. I hated the thought of it rotting in the event of a leak. We took the ML to Andy at CanAm in Ontario to have the hitch reinforced.I cannot stress enough how much he helped setting us up. We followed all of his advice. We use the EazLift with 1000lb bars and 2 friction sway bar controllers. We wanted to put a Hensley on but he said that it really wasn't necessary and he was correct. The hitch weight loaded runs about 850lbs and the trailer axle weight is 4600lbs. We love this model coach and it tows great. The only time I feel anything at all is if a semi runs by us close when they are going 80+....Otherwise, we set the cruise at 60 and the diesel runs at about 1600rpm. We average 15mpg while towing.
The negatives are the same with most new TT. You can plan on early tire replacement and make sure to have your axle bearings hand packed before your first long trip.
