I really like that floor plan. Congratulations on your new rig and tow vehicle.
I think you are really going to like the combination.

I was more thinking if there were a palm tree growing in front of my house, I would not need to snowbird in FL.

Also, I flipped my shank and lowered the ball as far down as it will go and I'm pretty sure I still don't have enough drop.



Looked in my RV Wholesalers catalogue and saw they carry an Equalizer 2 1/2" shank with I think a 12" drop. Only $200 Any one else run into this situation? Is buying a new shank the best way to go?

I would be really surprised if you need a 12" drop. My truck has an 8" lift with 36" tall tires, and I use a 12" drop.

Palm trees front and back but although rarely is a snowflake seen here except on the Weather Channel it is warmer in FL. Reservations are made for this winter in FL but thinking maybe AZ or TX the following.

BTW ~~ used to live in NW PA. Summers too short and winters too long in the land of high taxes. Come on down ~ you will love it here near the beach.
