You will love the Silverback 29RE. We purchased a 2015 in February, after having a number of 5th wheel trailers...this is the best we have had...we love it.

jackandjoanne... Where do you go to have your Silverback serviced, if needed? We are in the Hawley area and having trouble finding a place nearby to have our Silverback 29RE serviced when needed... Thanks

X-chocks needed?

Those of you that have the 6 point leveling you find a need for wheel stabilizer devices, JT arms or Kpin tripods ? Newbe here

Got you beat. Waited 10 years to order, and 10 weeks to go pick it up!
But, we were ready on the money end and got exactly what we wanted.

This Morning in Elkhart, Indiana

Enjoy your new rig.

Did away with our king pin tripod and we don't have stabilizers for the self leveling jacks. We are please with the stability

We love our 2016 33IK, you shouldn't need anything but wheel chocks with the level up system. Very easy set up compared to what I had previously.

Get that 2nd year warranty thru FR. Month 14 and issues with blinds and sewer system.
Looking forward to NOT having to crawl under the RV and drop the belly pad 👍
All in all, love our 2015 Silverback.
P.s. Heard the 2017 models are out and all changed!!
( only kidding )

Be sure to carry some cribbing blocks. The jacks will stop working altogether if any one reaches full extension and will have to be manually lowered from there.( Been there, got the T-shirt).
