I was kinda questioning bringing the trailer all the way out and around thrn loading it up. Why not bring it up beside the house or just infront of the garage and then load it up from there. Would at least be a shorter distance for the wagon runs.

Two final thoughts... I just wonder why why why does someone with a 5th wheel put a hard-top tonneau cover on their truck? And I guess it takes a special kind of anal-compulsion to make sure you put on your hitch lock before even running the slides out...(8:23)

Somebody else had to be filming some of those drive down the road scenes. So maybe dad, wife and daughter?

Still, seeing how nice that pulled makes me want to look into a fiver. Course that would mean a new truck too.....

New truck + New fiver = supporting the economy

This video speaks pretty well true to my setup and experience. As I've said before, we take way too much stuff. From what I saw - 1 load was groceries, one was beach gear (boogie boards, mats, umbrella, etc.) and the third was random stuff. When we go to our beach trips, we definitely pack more because of the extra element of going to the beach. You can see our chairs and possibly do "where's Waldo" to find the cart and a boogie board:

I'm exhausted just from watching the video. Makes even more happy with my class A.

I am amazed your breakaway cable hasn't caught on some of that gear during a turn causing the trailer brakes to lock up. I had that happen my first year with a fifth wheel so now I store very little in the bed from the hitch to the tailgate.

I usually do NOT roll with that much stuff back there. It's usually just a piece or two of wood for under the landing gear.

I watched for it and have thought of your experience (I do actually recall saying its happened to you before). I hook my break away cable back to the corner tie-down beside of the tailgate. Not sure if that helps or matters - my dealer strongly recommended against hooking the breakaway cable to the hitch, so I don't.
