We have a WindJammer 30 ft, Hitch to bumper.
Now Forest River has made the biggest goof of trailer design known to mankind
It has a 43 gal water tank. Which is big enough. But the Design and Engineering
Team are complete IDIOTS.
These morons put the fresh water tank at the rear of the trailer next to the bumper. Try boondocking with that scenario!
Sure fill the water tank and hit the scales. A very scary scenario.
How many cans of CHUNKY SOUP would I have to carry in the front mounted kitchen to counter balance a full tank of water not going over GVW?
This is not my first rodeo we have 45 years experience with every imaginable type of of trailer but I never imagined there would be trailers on the market where they would mount the water tank next to the bumper!!! Maybe I'm the idiot for thinking that FOREST RIVER would be smart enough to design with weight and balance in mind.
I looked under the trailer and it is very well sealed with heavy material. So how could I tell? Here's how! Fill the sucker up and go for a drive to the scales.
I am disappointed with myself but when you are shopping you look for floor plan and weight as the first priorities. Every thing fit the bill or so we thought.
As a rule we use fully serviced campgrounds but there are exception to every rule.
Now that I am finished RANTING does anybody have any ideas what i could do when we want to boondock ??
