Hi Melissa,
Welcome to the forum. You will love your Aviator. We love ours. We have the Wright Flyer multi color one. We use the sway control/weight distribution system! Would use no other. It is a heavy camper but pulls like a dream. You definitely want this system so it will not pull you all over the place. We currently live in Alabama but are moving to South Nevada. It will be nice to meet up with another Aviator owner. Good luck with new purchase.
Another little hint. DO not travel with the table top up. Lower it so it will not loosen at the floor.

Good luck,
Carol Earle

Hi Carol,
would you mind sharing which sway control system you use? Would love to meet-up when you make it out here. We do a ton of camping in Northern NV so it us up if you find your way up here!

Will definitely remember to lower the table!

Welcome Melissa to our little Aviator group! You are 1 of only 70 owners. I use a weight-distributing hitch but no other type of sway control and have had no trouble with sway. Your 2012 F250 is probably a stable enough platform where you may not need anything extra. Which Wright Flyer did you buy? There was I think only 2 for sale in the country. Once you get it I'm sure you will have questions. Between all us owners I'm we can help you with any problems or questions you may have.

Which brand do you use, we were looking at ProRide or Hensley but not sure about spending that much!

We bought the silver one in Alabama at Madison RV.

I have a basic 12000# Reese WDH that I have had for more than 10 years. People have good things to say about those other hitches but as you said they don't come cheap. Nice to see the Aviator holding its value. We love our and I think you will be very happy with yours as well.

I will look into the Reese hitch system as well. Thank-you for the info.

We have always has Airstreams but Roman is 6'4" and does not fit into them so well. Taking showers is a yoga session for him and he gets tired of hitting his head on the air conditioner.

Anyone here have any anecdotes or good tips on what you have done w/o oven when dry camping?

When you mentioned the name Roman it rung a bell. I had talked you a while ago about the Wright Flyer. They do have nice tall ceilings and I'm glad to see you finally got one! As far as no propane oven goes, we dry camped for 3 days last summer and never really missed not having it.There are solar ovens available if you like to bake though. If you dry camp a lot another owner named Blackhat6mike has multiple solar panels mounted on his roof and can run much of his trailer off them. The Aviator is very energy efficient and ours ran off battery power for three days and still showed full charge on the indicator in the bathroom. Post your Aviator serial# we can add you to the owners list Carol started.

Whoot! Whoot!

Snowtosurf, I am not sure you could run your convection for hours but maybe. Send Blackhat6mike a PM and I'm sure he can fill you in on the details of how he put it all together and what the system can do.
