First TT

Hello,
My wife and I are going to do our walk thru on or new Prime Time Tracer Air 235 this Saturday. We would like to know what questions or advise anyone has. Have been a member a short while but have read a lot on this forum. Everyone here seems very knowledgeable and helpful. We will be towing it with a 2004 F150 supercrew 5.4 373 gear and tow package. Have already purchased equalizer hitch 1000-10,000. The TT tongue weight is 550 and the trailer weights 4676. Thanks from snowy central Ohio.

Here's a link to the PDI Checklist in the Library. Make sure the dealer goes through it all with you. It's for a hybrid, but 99% of it is still applicable.

You'll also want the sway control.

You have the same truck I just upgraded from. It's a great truck, but it struggled going steep uphill, long distances.

Prime Time was one of the trailers we looked at when we bought ours. Looked like a really nice trailer. Didn't get one more due to availability than anything else.

Good luck and enjoy!
