Grey Wolf 23mk

I am wondering if anyone knows of a good place to get owner feedback on the Grey Wolf 23mk. I've searched this forum but cannot find mention of them. Specifically, I wonder do they do trailering and parking as they seem to have low ground clearance and I worry about tree root, potholes, etc. Also, I think I only found 2 heater vents in the model we saw and I want to know if that is true and whether the electric fireplace is suppose to make up the difference in heating. What are you suppose to do dry camping? Any information would be appreciated.

We have the 2017 greywolf 23 mk, it does'nt have the fireplace. Only 2 vents for the furnace. we have only used it once for about 15 minutes. we use a space heater mostly. Great trailer so far. Only minor issues that I fixed myself.

We have a 2018 Grey Wolf 23mk and just ended our first summer season camping with a TT. No problem with ground clearance. We also used a space heater mostly, but when we used the furnace we were PLENTY warm with just two vents. Sweet camper although both doors opening into the bathroom (tight space) and being separated from the bedroom while someone was using the bathroom took some getting used to!

i don't suppose......

hi guys, my wife and I just bought a 2018 23mk about 3 weeks ago. Drove it straight from the dealer to a local park for 2 nights. Love the camper and the layout (kids are grown and we don't have any grandkids). Didn't need the furnace at night, but ran the fireplace for about 5 mins in the morning to cut the chill.
Does anybody happen to know the coupler height when the trailer is sitting level? I'm trying to double check my Equalizer hitch setup (and avoid driving out to the storage facility where the trailer is parked).
thanks,

Congratulations on your 2018 23MK

My wife and I also purchased a 2018 23MK in January. We have not picked up ours until a few months. We are waiting for the snow to melt a bit.
As far as leveling the trailer for the equalizer hitch, you can measure at the tires when the unit is loaded from the ground to the Red Stripe. Then measure from the Red Stripe to ground both in front and back to verify the height. Remember that the trailer height at the storage location will not be the same as when it is loaded with your stuff. The trailer will be lower, so best be done before you leave for your next trip.

Question for you, looking for information on the wiring diagrams for the trailer, the camera that can be put into the back of the trailer, and how the "Solar Panel Ready" connection is integrated into the trailer. I want to put in a portable solar panel but I also have a portable generator. Can I run both generator and solar panel together?

Thanks in advance for any comments,

This is our first TT, so the generator and solar question is beyond my knowledge base at this stage of the game. Search the site threads, I've seen a lot of generator and solar threads. Thanks for thoughts on the hitch as well. My storage lot isn't level, so I plan on loading the TT up in the spring and rechecking all the measurements for the WDH in our church parking lot.

Great to see some reviews

My wife and i just purchased a 23MK as well, factory order so will be a few weeks.
Anyone used the back travel rack for a bike rack? Looking to see what i need to add to carry the bikes on that rack.
Considering using some kind of fork-mount from a roof rack mount system.
Anyone have any experience?

Thanks

I actually bought a set of these this winter to bolt onto the cargo carrier and haul bikes. Unfortunately I can't tell you if it works because the TT is still under a foot of snow and I haven't tried them out.
Good luck.

Can you share where you got these and how they hold the bikes in place? I also want to figure out an effective way to put my bike on our Cherokee 274VFK back rack. Thanks! Wendy

I picked mine up at Campers World for about $25. They are actually made for a specific cargo rack, but I figured washers and different bolt sizes would take care of any installation issues (other than lining up with the holes in the rack). My 'plan' was to put two bikes in racks facing opposite directions. Pool noodle or something similar in between bikes to keep from rubbing. Lightweight racheting straps (tie downs, rope, whatever) attached to front and back of carrier, going over bikes. The stands I bought will just keep the bikes standing up, the straps should keep them on the carrier. I'm planning on using 2 or 3 straps like I do with the bike carrier on back of car.
I'll let you know if I lose a bike this summer
