What comes with an XLR?

We just recently ordered a 2017 XLR 29HFS and had a question on what standard things normally comes with it.
  • Does this come with a decent blackwater hose? Or should I invest in a rhinoflex. Does the hose fit in the bumper?
  • Water hose?
  • Water pressure regulator?
  • Wheel chocks?

Is there anything else I should "amazon" before I pick it up?

Thanks for helping this newbie!

Tony

Ours only came with the power cord. ��

There is a tube under the trailer for the drain hose, but it's useless for any sort of descent hose. (There is no rear bumper on a toy hauler)

U will need everything

Water hose - I like the expandable ones that fit in your hand and expand to 50ft like on TV make sure it's got the plastic ends for RVing no lead

Sewer hose - storage container for sewer hose

Sewer hose 90 ends - required at most Campgrounds now - sealed fit to campground sewer

WDH hitch - like Anderson WDH

Anderson level kit -

Level bubble kit

120v to 240V adapter

At Least 2 12v deep cycle batteries

Locks for toyhauler rear door

Will need soon

Broom - vacuum
New mattress
Entry mats
Outdoor patio big rug /mat - very nice to have


And then there are lots of mods --

Start on page one of WW - what did you do to your HyperLight today - and your be good for at least a year lol

Oh good call on the lack of bumper. What do people do with the hose? Rubbermaid tote?

They come with 1 cheap 12v - I advise you change that out to 2 12v deep cycle - for piece of mind if you plan on any dry camping

Batteries are installed by the dealer, not the factory.

It comes with shore power line and the spray hose for the outside spigot if you get anything else it would have to be something the dealer throws in.

I have a different XLR, but mine came with a pvc slinky storage tube under the trailer. It only holds a 10' hose. I had to buy a bigger one from Amazon for my 15' hose. I keep the clear elbow and other sewer fittings in a small rubbermade tote.

My suggestions after camping in our XLR for the last 4 years. Invest in see thru Rubbermaid containers. We use one for sewer hose, fittings, and black tank water hose for flush and one for electrical cords, adapters, and Progressive power management device. A smaller one for fresh water hose and water pressure regulator. Other items needed include wood or plastic pads to level trailer side to side, wood for under tongue to level front to back. Chocks ( black rubber) from Harbor Freight for your trailer wheels.

What are you planning on carrying in the back of your toy hauler?
