Thanks. We loved our last trailer for 11 years, but there is no comparison. Jerry.

Can I play .... ?

Went to buy a 16UL, but the wife thought it was waaaay too small so 18EC it is ...



She towed very well on flat roads from SC, but I wouldn't dare tow with her through the Tennessee mountains. On the way home, the GCW came in at 12,750# completely empty. Even with a 8,200# tow rating, a 15,000# GCWR didn't leave much "room" for the Street Glide, fuel, water, gear, friends and us ..... so ....



Now with a 14,000# tow rating and a 23,500# GVWR there is plenty of "room".

Remember to look at the GCWR of you tow vehicle guys when matching to your trailer. I don't know how some of the tow vehicles on the road get away with what they do ... just plain ludicrous.

they completed the road over Mt Evans. We went over it this summer. It was not anything like Raton pass
