Congrats on the new rig.

The truck upgrade is smart for that size TT...so let's hear about your RV?! We loved the aerodynamic pointed nose on the VR1 (only model we could find a few years back) but they didn't have any of the floor plan we liked, so we ended-up with a nice Denali.

We have upgraded to a MH now, but will always wonder about that set-up. We like the one with the front kitchen.
Enjoy it!!

Front kitchen rear br. It's heavy about 7100 dry with all our junk, truck and passengers about 14k? Just guessing. I'm gonna hit a scale and get an exact weight. So far we really like it. Elec awning, stab jacks, and slides which is welcome to someone like me with severe back problems.

Very Nice!

I bet you will see a bit better MPG than a typical flat nose TT too

If it's the 302FKV Freedom from Coachman, it's 6,893lb empty from the factory! So you only have a little bit of stuff in it...and can go up to 9,800!!

Fill'er up!

Thanks for the info. With truck and trailer full I should gross around 14 k. Much Better with 3/4 ton. Fuel mileage was about 9 over a 40 mile trip. I should average 10 the way I drive. We r having fun.
