Picked up the trailer yesterday and boy does it look bigger in my driveway than it does on the dealers lot.. LoL!!
1st things 1st . We bought this trailer from Ruston's RV Centre in Burlington, Ontario.
I have to say that this dealer was fantastic all the way throughout the whole process. We met Rob (one of the owners) at the Toronto RV show a couple of months ago and throughout all the shopping around and haggling stage, he was a Professional
, through and through. He was straight up and honest and didn't bash any competitor we compared , just highlighted any differences between the Freedom Express, and other mfg's trailers we where looking at and, gaves the pro's and con's etc... of each.
Now to the delivery day yesterday. While we finalized the paperwork, Rob had his service guy Steve grab the keys to our truck and began setting up the Husky Centreline. By the time we came out , he was ready to do the PDI and the walk around of all the systems. Again Steve was fantastic, he clearly explained all the systems and how to work them, answered any questions we had and made sure we understood everything. He even installed the TP and towel holder where we asked and adjusted the screen door that didn't latch completely, all with a friendly happy demeanour. He even helped set up my Tekonsha Primus IQ brake controller which I had installed myself, so really he had no obligation to do so, but like I said this dealer is fantastic!
So now the trailer is hooked up to the truck and we drive off into the sunset with our new 292BHDS in tow. The drive home wasn't a far one, however it was a combination of Highway, and city. I will provide a more detailed analysis of the towing with this combo, after a longer trip, however preliminary observations are that this truck, trailer,WDH combo works very well. Don't get me wrong, at 100Km/h, you do know the trailer is back there, but it is NOT a white knuckle experience. In fact it might actually improve with a bit more load in the trailer to bring the tongue weight up a bit more.
Also the Tekonsha Primus IQ works like a charm! I didn't really feel any of the trailer weight when braking!
I'll post a few pics in the next couple of days and provide more details of issues/concerns or cudos.
