Been looking forward to this day for a long time! My hubby was hesitant about the ride home as he's never towed anything quite this big but thanks to a good wdh she towed like a dream! :-)

Good looking set up

Still waiting on the snow to melt in Minnesota so I can bring my Grey Wolf home

It's a cloth Garden flag. I ordered it from Made Fresh Tees :-)

Love the sign. Is that a custom thing? Ive seen lots of camp signs. Was thinking about getting one as a wedding present for my Lady. Ill have to make a post to get some ideas.

I was thinking about making a post last night about signs and flags. Start a thread so we can get some ideas.

I just did under the forest river "livestyle" tab titled custom camp signs. Hope to get some good ideas and pics, vendors, links etc. Ive seen some great ones. Looking for something truly unique.

Looks like a great set up. Although, it looks like the front door step is a bit high!

Do you have the steps inside the door that fold out from the interior?

I believe she does have the MorRyde 'solid step' at the front entrance; the rear has the traditional fold out step.

For whatever reason, FR only puts one of those in a trailer, even if it has two entrances - at least, that's what I've seen. The Grey Wolf I'm picking up day after tomorrow has one - and it was one of the things that sold me on the GW.

Hopefully all of the FR brands / lines get them soon.

Personally I would rather have the folding steps.

Yes they are the steps that fold out from the interior. They're very very sturdy and actually fairly low to the ground. I have trouble with steps that's one of the reasons we chose this.
This camper is actually the Cherokee 274dbh which is a slightly upgraded Big Brother of the Grey Wolf 26dbh. :-)

I can respect that, of course...but I am curious as to the reason(s) for your preference, if you'd care to elaborate?

Besides the stability factor, I know the folding steps can sometimes have ground clearance issues, especially those trailers whose frames sit low (and the Grey Wolf qualifies, there).

A power step, especially if it folded up into the frame, would be something I might take an interest in - but it would have to have a manual failover - and stuff like that isn't something you'd find at the GW price point, IMO.)

(sorry if I hijacked the thread, but I am curious, since both the OP and I seem to much prefer the 'stable step')

Oh I'm interested as well. We were discussing maybe replacing the back folding steps with a set like we have in the front. But perhaps there benefits to the folding steps that I'm not thinking of :-) also, the Cherokee sits a bit higher than it's Grey Wolf brother so clearance may not be as much of an issue?

I ordered a Grey Wolf 29TE, itís also a two door entrance but only comes with one Mor Ryde step, I ordered another one for the other entrance, the pros/cons is all in how you camp and store your trailer, the biggest downfall Iíve heard with the flip up style steps is it takes more room to open them up and could cause problems for tight camping or storage

Yep - yours does sit higher than the GWs (and that's a *very* nice trailer, btw - congrats!)

I was going to write that I think I'd like to have the fixed step at the back, in case I was rushing to access the bathroom from outside. But I did just think of why one might *not* want that fixed step - cleanliness (especially if they fold up into the bathroom, like yours would.)

I like that rear bath floorplan, though. Being able to access the bath w/o having to extend a slide first was important to me. Saw the 274 at the RV show here a month or so ago - very nice. I'm just not ready to tow something that large, right now (1st TT, as of tomorrow)
