The one I will be getting does not have the murphy bed. I am opting for the extra storage space. But I guess this could load up the tongue weight as well. I'll have to be careful where I put the heavy stuff.
I was going to if the dealer would give me a discount on the WDH. I looked at the Equalizer on Amazon and was going by their weight of 100lbs. Good to know that it is somewhat less than that. I was also looking at the Anderson 3380
. It sounds like it is fairly easy to install and has really good reviews (they could be bogus I guess). Anyone have experience with these? Does it matter that much which one I get or do they all perform about the same?
As far as weighing, I was thinking I would load up the family and fill up with gas to see how much I would have left over. Being that this is my first camper, I am not real sure what all I am going to need. I suppose I can load some the suitcases with dirty laundry, throw some firewood in the back and maybe a cooler full of frozen meat. Maybe the camping equipment I have in the garage. This should give a fairly accurate picture.
