Looks great!! It also looks like you got the 17.5s under it before you picked it up.

Yep the 17.5" wheels were bolted on and aired up.

I had forgotten the difference in how a 5er rides compared to a travel trailer off the bumper.

Nice coach Ken. Terrific looking floor plan and interior. Here's hoping you get tons of enjoyment out of it.

You must a picked yours up the same week we got ours in that torrential downpour and flood lol. But was nice to be able to make sure there were no leaks, if it had a leak it would have definitely showed up then. Spent the past week fixing and modifying stuff, putting in our flat screens and it gets new LT tires as soon as we get back from visiting our kids. But you got a nice setup there.....

555, the Alpenlites are nice....but not lite in weight. We were at Purtis Creek SP and we had a downpour and some hail. Dry as toast inside.

Hope that tire/wheel combo works best.

I've pulled GN trailers behind 1T's (to 24k), so what is the "difference" on TT and 5'er to which you refer? The way the TV front axle is loaded? A reference about " passenger ride quality" in the main, correct?

Looks very nice.

What a great floorplan! Lots of cooking room with the island too. Carriage sure did build an outstanding product.
