Well we made it back!! The PDI went very well, with no problems found! We were kind of miserable last night with the chemical smell, it was in the 40's, so we couldn't really air it out, it was bad. Traveled back 365 miles today with it, and it pulls well behind my F-150 with tow package. The equalizer,and prodigy are great(thanks for he suggestions)! I can definetly tell it is behind me, but the truck ran around 3000 to 3500 RPM's. Here is a link to some pictures. ENJOY, and if you have any tricks on the chemical smell, please let me know!!

Whoa! That's a beauty! Congrats on the new purchase!

I've read a few notes about how to handle the smell from the chemicals used to assemble the trailer and the most popular suggestion was a combination of heat (warmer weather seems to make the outgassing process happen quicker), open windows and open roof vents with a fan running when possible. Since that's probably not a choice year around, another thread mentioned using "zeolite pouches" to filter the air and remove the outgassing from the air in your trailer, but they need the air to pass through them to work. (for reference only) - http://www.refreshinglyfree.com/s.nl...category.40/.f

These might be especially helpful when you run the furnace or AC and that "new" smell comes out of them for the first few times of use.

Hope that helps and allows you to enjoy your future outings sooner.




Here's some interesting reading concerning formaldehyde used in some of the Hurricane Katrina trailers that were used to house people that were effected by the storm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formaldehyde

Hello and Congrats! That is a beautiful camper, I love the floorplan and especially, the table and chairs instead of the benches that I have in mine, that is my only big complaint about my camper. The cushions slide out while sitting on them and you eventually have to get up and readjust the cushions. I also love the large windows on your camper, its a beauty!

Too bad manufacturer cannot have a slide show of trailers like that one. That is a beautiful trailer.
Enjoy
