Was delivered Saturday morning! Luv it! Heck it's better then our house! lol It's almost too fancy! Anyway, I hooked er up and took it for a test run with my 1/2 and it pulled surprisingly well! Didn't even put on bars or sway! Just means it'll pull that much better once all the bars and sway are attached! Can't wait to try er out this weekend! Kids are super excited as well!

Looks great! What are you towing it with? Should be fine with a later model half ton. I tow my 5600#'er with an F150 (it's rated at 9800lbs).

Not much of a winter alright.

I'm a Skidoo man but wanted that turbo!
I still got in 1240 miles

Got a 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 5.3. I think it will do OK. Not expecting to win the race with it that's for sure! lol

not to hijack this but seen you guys are into sleds, well chaulk another one to that list, I ride an 06 Summit 800 and the wife has a 98 MXZ 670. Great to see more sledders and guys with the same trailer even.

Sweet! Yeah I used to ride a 98 MXZ 583 back in the day. I really wanted to get a Summit when I got my Rene but couldn't pass up the deal! Where abouts you ride?
