I bought mine from Giant RV. I think Stealth line only exclusive to Giant RV in socal market. They do sell them from other west coast vendors, where Giant RV is not in business. The Sandstorm is for other vendors in the socal market.

During walk thru found bathroom fan not working and shower knob missing the hot plastic cover. Both fixed right away. Max Air vents are a must in my opinion. Camping world has them on sale right now. I do agree with you about no front stabs, thats my next buy for it and x chocks. I also wanna get the Atwood deluxe elect jack. What mods have you guys done it your TH. Still havent taken out my quads, wife scared to scatch up the floor on the TH.

I could have bought a Stealth in Oregon but everybody wanted another $5,500 so thats why I bought from Giant RV. Since I am living in it four days a week, I added a queen mattress. The condensation this winter was really bad until I installed the Maxxair vents. I use a small electric heater and use the gas system as a backup. I have the stabilizer jacks and will install them when it quits raining,,,,,assuming of course that it ever quits raining!! I use the X chocks and like them. The next thing I have planned is to scratch the floor. A big deep long ugly scratch, accidentally of course! Like your wife, mine is concerned loading the quads and I figure once we get past that first scratch, we'll be OK!!!???

I did put together a simple weight chart that was kind of enlightening. I found that if I haul four people in the truck I have to move some weight to the trailer or I am overweight on the truck. However, if I have both quads in the trailer, I have to move some weight to the truck to keep from overloading the trailer and I guess the extra people have to find another ride. I am towing with a 2010 Tundra Maxxcab and my quads are Honda Rincons which run about 630 to 650 pounds each. I'm sure that the side to side weight on the trailer will be important also. It's do-able but just takes a little planning to avoid problems.

Wow that much more. .. Ouch. I know you can buy them in other places but in socal only Giant has them. Nobody told me there would be math involved when taking out my quads... Lol. Wat kind of front stabs you buy. Scissor or the cross stab. I changed out my comp locks to combi locks, cause I hate having ten different keys for the TH. Trying to get down to a few keys only. Does your TH have different keys for the main door and the cargo doors.

I bought the scissors and I have a key for each door. I display them all in one bowl by the stove top as a kind of display. I like to think of it as art!. LOL

Curious, how would they damage the an axel? Those things have to flex a little when you turn the rig. Just look in your mirror the next time you give it a good hard turn on pavement. You hear that popping sound and looking at the wheels and they don't line up anymore. One may even look like it's about to pop off, but that's the way they are built. I don't think you can put that much force on it with a xchock wrench.
