Power Touring Trail Express is the name on them. Factory junk, but I don't travel to far on them and I watch the inflation.

Not sure if you pulled the trigger on this but another thing to watch for when bringing in the slide. I left my bathroom door open and the dinette table caught the door and it ripped the table right out of the floor.

Haven't had that happen....yet. Do you pull with the F150? I pulled with a 2007 Chevy 1/2 ton and when I went to Colorado, it didn't handle the mountains too well. Traded in for a 3/4 ton Suburban with 8.1 liter. Pulls great and get excellent yardage (6 - 8 mpg). Considering switching to diesel.

Yes, I pull with the F 150. 5ltr. I'm pretty much pulling it on the flats. I use a wd hitch with dual sway bars. Not the greatest tow vehicle but I have added a leaf to the springs to firm it up. It actually only drops an inch or two when I connect.

I now officially hate ours!! Leaks, stuff falling apart, junk! I guess, we wanted to get a fifth wheel anyway, just didn't think it'd be this soon! Hopefully yours works out better than ours did! 3 years and done (if you even count the first year that it was in the shop more then we used it)! Ugh!! Done!! Good Luck!! Oh and I will never buy another Forest River product again!

It might just be the photo angle, but it looks like the trailer is a good bit nose up. It will tow much better level or very slightly nose down.

It also looks like there is a lot of space between the front tires and fenders. When you hook up your WDH you should be able to get the front wheel fenders to be the same distance from the ground as when not towing.

Thanks, I think it is a bit nose up as well. I'm guessing I will need to drop the hitch ball 1 hole and try it out. My truck rides a little higher than the previous owner's.

As far as the weight distribution, I'm pretty new at this. The previous owner used 3 links, I went to 4. Do I need to move up 1 more? When I lower the height of the ball, will that make a difference how many links I have to use? I'm using an Eaz I Lift that came with the trailer.
