Tyler, do you have a website you can share to check out the new pics from your dealer? Everything I see online are still the old pictures.

Libertyrv.com is the dealer we are buying from. They don't have a 26dbh on the website right now I don't think. They do have a 27dbs featured. It has all the same interior finishes, and a picture of the camp kitchen. Hope this helps.

I think the 27 is a foot longer? Otherwise I could never figure out why they had two of the same models in the line up.

The floor of the 26DBH is 26 feet long, but from the furthest point on the front curve to the back is 28 feet. The 274 DBH has windows on the side of the slide, but other differences can't be much..... I also saw the hot water heater was by the door curb side vs street side under the bed.

Ah, brochures do not show that detail. Thanks.

Congrats! Your going to love it. I initially had the same thought about it being heavier than I wanted but the wife and kids pretty much sold it for the guy. It had the most to offer for the price. As far as the weight, with 3 kids and loaded up with the exception of water, we weighed well below what I expected. This particular trip I thought I was going to be really close to the limits as we were going for an10 day trip to 3 different state (Fl) parks and we pretty much packed everything swim gear, inflatable kayaks, and bikes. Had to weigh in at the first scale to make sure I was good, and I was! I even weighed in at a interstate weigh station scale to second confirm my original weigh in and they were the same. It towed beautiful with the 10k equalizer. Had ours since Labor Day and been out for a total of 30 days and have another trip planned during presidents weekend. We take advantage of every 3 day weekend the kids get. Usually turns into 4. The other one we were close to buying was the Bullet 24dbh but really happy we went bigger, the extra room makes a huge difference, especially on a rain day, we don't feel like we are on top of each other.

We pick up our 26dbh on the 6th of Feb. Got a Husky centerline 800/8000 spring bars, Spoke with rep at Husky and they recommended this weight rating. The 1000/10000 is to much for it to tow proper. Anything over 8k in the trailer will be pushing it.
I have been reading up on the PDI anyone have suggestions.

Thanks steelframer and fltundra. We can't wait for the pickup date. I don't think my Chevy Z71 5.3L will have to much trouble pulling it. Gas mileage might take a significant drop, but it's cheap. Haha. Most of the time we will stay within an hour or two from home, but once a year we would like to take it on a major family vacation. Already booking a trip to beaver lake Arkansas for a 4 day weekend in June.

Lukegsdaddy congrats on your purchase as well! I guess I just always assumed that a little heavier WDH wouldn't hurt. The 26dbh hitch already weighs 725lbs dry. So if we load any weight at all in it we would be over the 800 pound hitch weight. I know we can't go over the 8000lb max rating since the trailer GVWR is less than that, but i guess I'm just more worried about the tongue weight. I could be going about this all wrong though. After all I am a complete newbie here and looking for any information that will help me from breaking stuff. Haha

Congrats on your new 26DBH. We bought a 2016 in June 2015. We have used it twice for a week each time and love it. We have 3 trips planned already for 2016. Welcome to the club!
