Did you have to lower the rear of your F350? Wish my Chevy 3500 was that level... the tail is up in the air... makes me currently have to tow the 5er with nose high. Have lowering shackles on order... hope it helps some.

No changes to the stock vehicle height. Mine is a 2wd which sits like a 70's kids car (higher in the rear). When the 5th is attached, it settles to level.

I had the opposite issue in that I had to ensure the pin is set to its lowest allowable point and the hitch is at the highest, as my trailer wants to ride nose low. It is almost level now.

Enjoy your new Brookstone.

Our Brookstone 395RL. Have had it a couple months now. Spent 2 nights in it so far. All is great.

Dwayne,

I see the grill sitting on a stand. Is that the grill that came in the basement or another Coleman type? I like the stand. I have cooked on my Coachmen provided grill once and it did a good job, but the propane bottle and line are awkward to connect.
Heading out again this weekend so I'll probably use it more and see if I put it on a table or use as is on the sliders.

Nope, no grill came with it. It's my RoadTrip that I've had for a while. I really do like it. Love the full griddle we got for it. Cooks bacon fantastic.


By the way, the stand is attached and folds down. Fairly easy to deal with.

Wow. My Chaparral 390 (same basic floor plan as yours) came with a grill on a pull out set of rails and a mini-frig in that small basement. Pic

We had one of the Coleman grill like yours with the stand for the race team hauler.

We looked at that one too. Ours came with a refrigerator and a sink in the compartment. We talked about it, but in the old trailer we never used stove that came with my outside kitchen, we just use my Coleman

Just bought a new 2016 Coachmen 312BHDS Liberty Edition two months ago. We have been out three times and one was a week at Table Rock Lake in southern Missouri. We really like it and how well the truck (2014 F150 Lariat max tow 3.5 Eco Boost) tows it. It is solid as a rock on the interstate. Added the second AC.
