First trip with the new rig!
We just got back from a week in our (new to us) Rockwood 8317. Trip went flawlessly! I have always boondocked in the past so this was my first trip with hookups.... the site we went to was nothing what I expected! It was just like boondocking with the niceness of having the hookups! Lots of trees... big site...only difference was that our neighbours were alot closer than what I was used to....from this I met some really nice people from all over Canada!
The rig worked well for all 7 of us and our 2 dogs so I think we made a good choice with this trailer.
One thing I did notice was when we were in bed and the kids were in the bunk house, the trailer was very bouncy. I had the electric stabilizer jacks down and firm.... but it was still REALLY bouncy. I did not use blocks under the jacks...they were just planted on the ground but the ground was very solid. Would using blocks under the stab jacks alleviate the instability I am experiencing?
I had electric landing gear on the front of my previous 23 foot 5th wheel and manual scissor jacks on the rear, it was solid as a rock!
