Just ordered an XLR 29MBV. Downsizing from a large fifth wheel. Did alot of research and tried to find one in Calif to see. Was only able to see a different model of XLR, so ordered it sight unseen. This just might be the only one in Calif. Hopefully this wasn't a mistake. Plan to haul a Harley Ultra. Delivery should be in 6-8 weeks.

I need to get a weight distribution hitch now. The V-nose hopefully won't be an obsticle in getting one.

Happy to see this sight and hope to contribute in the future.

I have that same trailer and you will love it. I haul 2 Road Kings in it. It is tight but, there is plenty of room. I use an equalizer hitch to tow with. You will need the larger set up 1400#'s. the V nose is not a problem. I re-checked the set up and changed a little. The TH pulls great. We have not had any issues. If there is anything I wil change, it is the bed. I will put one of the beds on rails to get it out of the way when we haul the bikes. I do have pics posted under my name. If you change the bed at the factory, they move the back window to make this happen. The tongue weight is quite heavy( 1350#'s).
Good Luck

Thanks Jestercyco

I ordered it with the electric (jack) bed, Electric tongue jack, wood cabinet doors instead of the smoked glass ones, day/night shades in place of the mini blinds, second battery and some other things.

I have been lurking on this site for awhile before joining, and it was your post about the bed that convinced me to order the electric bed, so thank you. Figured I can still use the bed if I need to leave the Harley inside.

Thanks again..
