It's my first RV(at least the first that was all mine) so I have one hell of a learning curve ahead of me! That being said, she really is quite large! For only being branded as a 35' RV it measures tip to tail 39' and some change and 13.5' tall at the highest point of the AC. Are there any good links on this site of checklists for RVs as to what i would need to keep in it at all times?

Watch for "tail swing." Don't ask me how I know. I'm still too embarrassed to talk about it.:bang head:

What are you going to tow it with?

I'm a truck driver and usually run hot shot runs with a 36' gooseneck so i know all about that(and so do the few fences that were too close when i was starting out heh). I plan on towing it either with my Freightliner or trying it out on my Ram 2500. I have enough GVWR and pin weight handling on the dodge so i'm gonna see how much it sags it if too much freightliner it is.

It is big! I think your MDT will have a better time pulling it, but do you have a sport cab or just a two-door cab?

I have the sport cab. It's pretty stripped down on the interior but it is a work truck after all!

In all seriousness,, it would be stupid to haul that trailer with the 2500 dodge rather than the Freightliner. Toy haulers are almost always at the limit or overweight when loaded for a trip. I know, I have one myself. I'm really surprised that one that large is only a two axle. Weigh it loaded for a trip, It will scare you. I would really put $$ on it that your 2500 Dodge doesn't have the GCWR to haul it.

Hrmm... Anyone know if i pull the DOT plaques off the side and run it as a personal vehicle with the 5er on the back if it still has to stop at weigh stations? I've never considered that before...
