Nice looking. What size wheels are on there? They look small. I'd check the tire loading a weight range.

Nice new addition to the family! :-)

Curious...What hitch did you get for the Dodge...and what's the turning ratio?

Thanks!

8k axle wth G rated tires are an option but I was warned that the combo can cause a rough ride for the trailer contents with my model.
I have the 18k B&W Turnover ball hitch w/companion and have no issues with turning. A fellow RVer on the Redwood forum has a 6' bed and claims he has no turning or backing issues either. He also has the B&W hitch.
Thank you all for your kind words.

Steve, I got away from the E rated 16' wheels and went to 17.5" H rated wheels and tires. Have you checked your axle loads and the tire ratings? Sure hate to see a tire blow and mess up the new RV. My GVWR is a bit over 16,000# on my Cameo.

Here are the interior pics of our rig. http://www.travelinandersons.com/redwood.html
The kitchen pics above show a dishwasher and gas range which our's does not have. We have the convection/microwave option in ours.
We also added a 5.5k gen, stackable washer/dryer and Travler satellite dish.
Ran it over a SmartWeigh and am well within my weight limits.
