So we picked up our new Rockwood 8265WS (love the trailer) on Friday and the walk through went very well. We stayed the first night in Fort Langley, Brae Island park, BC. with full hook ups (20 minutes from the dealer ship). Everything worked just fine.
The next day we gave it all a good shaked down and drove about 400 Km or 240 miles. from Fort Langley to Okanagen Lake Provincial Park, just south of Summerland, BC. This time with no hookups. All working well. The Hijacker auto slide hitch work very well, way better then I would have thought and 90 degree turns are no problems (the hitch assembly has automaticly moved back 14 inches by the time I get to 90 degrees, clearing the cab). I have a short box truck.
We hope to stay on the road for 3-4 weeks depending weather.
