I'm really curious, why are you traveling without power to the fridge? The unit is designed to operate the fridge with the inverter during travel.

The options I have on mine are:
Larger refrigerator (dual doors)
The 6 point auto leveling system (a must!)
King size bed (rv king)
For us, the rear kitchen and the options above make this coach extremely comfortable.
What ever you decide, I want you to know that it want be a bad decision.

I tow my 31RK with an F250 6.7L Diesel with air bags. Plenty of power for hills, good handling and braking. Had to get a weight ticket to license it and well within the weight limits of the truck. The rear axle of the truck was 5,000 lbs with the tow connected and the empty trailer was right at 9,000lbs. The trailer can hold 3400 lbs of cargo but the F250 rear axle would likely max out at 2500 lbs.

As to options I recommend getting the 6 point leveling, upgraded mattress, wireless rear camera, 2nd ac if you are in warm climate, vacuum and residential fridge unless you prefer to boondock. You'll need to add batteries if you have the residential fridge/inverter.

I don't understand you had to get a weight ticket

local tax and tag office wouldn't accept the manufacturers certificate of origin which has the weights on it. Go figure.

Anyway, I had wanted to get the truck and trailer weighed together anyway so I could figure out how much weight was on my hitch and how much cargo I could safely add without being overweight.

Bought my 2014 38CK from Couch's. Worth the drive. Ask for Jeff or Brandon. Don't screw around with them trying for free bees after they give you a great price. It's insulting.
