Is that a tri fold or a jack knife sofa in that model? Do you pull it with a 1/2ton?
we do in fact pull it with a 2011 dodge ram crew hemi, i don't even feel the trailer behind the truck. tows the trailer easily. When we were looking for our new trailer we looked at the model that you are, the Apex won out on two major things for our needs. 1st) was the fact that the dinette is located on your camp side of the sites. this allows my wife to see our kids playing because of the big window at the dinette. 2) it fit on our driveway! we have a 30 amp hookup in our garage that allows us to test the trailer before leaving and while packing it up a couple days before our trips.
Then thier is the fact that when we looked they were not doing a tub in the bathroom, with 2 little girls under the age of 5 having the ability to bath when away for more then a few days was important, they were willing to build us one with a tub.
On the sofa side it is a jackknife on ours, it is also the residential style sofa.
