New to this forum

Our current, and should be last for a long time, trailer is a 2011 Coachmen Brookstone 354TS.



It's about 40ft, 15,5k GVWR. It was a left over model we purchased in November 2011.



Options include 6pt level up, Trailair pin box, King bed, 12 cuft fridge, electric fireplace, and full body paint.

It's not pink, it's the reflection from the flowering crap apple.


Several mods including 2 roof vent covers, bedroom turbo-Maxx fan, bathroom full fan upgrade, slide out shelves in the cupboard, added a second 12volt battery, TireMinder TPMS, custom welded hitch for Swivel wheel, but in the pictures moved the sofa to the back wall adding two side stands, and the chairs to the side wall for better tv viewing.







And to take one of our cats with us, I added an entry to a closet for the litter pan, and an entry to the bedroom, so we can keep the door closed.


Swivel wheel, unhooked.


The Swivel Wheel with loaded bike.



Where I would like to be

First off, what a beautiful rig. I love the colors. Secondly welcome to irv2.com, we are a sharing group who enjoy the banter, and helping each other with the little things that happen along the way.

How do you like the bike trailer? Is it easy to use?

Nice rig like the interior also. The reflection on the side of the 5er is reflecting the colors from the Flowering Japanese Crab tree, Pretty, Enjoy it and all your travels,

Thanks again for the kind words, and warm welcome.

As far as the bike trailer/Swivel Wheel.

I drove with it from MI to MT and back without any issues. It backs up with the FW, which has gotten me out of a couple of predicaments, without having to unhook. I really cannot complain.

I use a 12ft long (folds to 6ft) ramp, and though it is stable, solid, it is still always a little disconcerting. So this year, I have ordered a rampage lift to put on the trailer. With that, I will not have to worry anymore that I am going to fall over and make a fool of myself.

Very nice setup. That ramp would definitely make my heart skip a beat.
Welcome and safe travels!
