With 6 kids I will bet you do have some stories! The kids moving out was a bit sad but about the time we got used to them being gone they came back. While not wishing to get older any faster, we are looking forward to having the freedom we haven't had for 25 years. We have a long list of places we want to take our camper to. Really look forward to meeting the other owners as well and seeing what they have done to their Aviators.

Oh NO! I am sorry to hear that. Really hoping to meet you and get a little Aviator Club going to do some camping with new friends. Does it leak when raining or when turning on the water. Where do you live? My guy in Florence , AL Jaime with Bankston Rv has done wonders with my Aviator. If you were close enough maybe he could help with yours. Getting it back next week after having a second AC added.

I was also going to suggest Loretta tries a different dealer as well. From how she has described it, I think her leak is from the plumbing behind the shower. There is a lot of fittings in the space between the back of the shower and behind the outside docking station panel. I eliminated many of the connections because of leaking fittings. I hope she gets it fixed!

I know, Lorretta try a different dealer. Kenhwy has a lot of knowledge about the Aviators. He has replaced all his fittings. The Aviator is so unique hate to see have to give it up.

Just an FYI for Aviator Wright-Flyer owners. I had my trailer weighed at my local CAT scale today. The weight on the two axles was 7320 loaded with most of what we take camping excluding food and clothes. All water and waste tanks empty. The tongue weight was 1340 with 2 full propane tanks and two batteries. These are definitely front-heavy campers probably from the weight of the thick glass front. Gross trailer weight was 8660.

That is interesting. Do you store a lot of stuff in the front storage compartment as well. Just read this to my husband. Told him we need to store more in the back compartments. Thanks for the update.

I actually don't store anything heavy in the front because it already heavy enough. Maybe they should of been really innovative and put the propane and batteries in the back of the trailer to offset the heavy glass!

We agree! We noticed no matter how we hitch it or load, it always seems tilted towards the hitch. But it sure does pull well.
