Would recommend/buy again.
I read about the slide underside wear. Please share ideas for your fix.

Sorry, one more question. What is your tow vehicle and how is the combo. I have an 2007 Expedition w/ heavy duty tow package. I'm thinking this will be a good match to the 245BHS.

We have the 600/6000lb Equal-i-zer Hitch now and will get a new one (1000/10000lb) if we buy the Tracer.

Called the dealer at the beginning of March and the sales manager told me on the phone they should getting new 245BHS units in by end of March. He put me on hold while he checked his orders/delivery dates. I emailed Prime Time with questions on the unit yesterday and they told me today the 245BHS has been discontinued and no units are being shipped. Why would the sales manager at the dealer lie? To be expected I guess but what's the upside to saying it's coming in and it's not?

Need to start over on our search.

There hoping you'll stop in at the end of the month so they can sell you something else. There saleman, they will say anything to get you in the door. Then they lay on the BS thick and start talking circles!

Sometimes the dealer has different information than we get as consumers. We were at our dealer today and they have one in stock. I think we also liked the Kodiak floor plan. Noticed prices are up a couple grand from last year. Good luck.

PT said only dealer stock is available and they did not see anything in stock near CT. We looked at a 2014 Kodiak 240BHSL about a month ago but the Tracer 245BHSL seemed to be better in many ways, although we never got to see one in person.

Never knew they had that model and it's not on the PT website. Must be disco'd also? We are trying to stay under 27' mostly for being able to get into our favorite camping spots and storage issues etc.
