Took the plunge!

We finally did it and ordered a 26DBH. We went to the rv show last weekend not looking to buy, but the deals got us. The dealer said the grey wolf should be in about 4 weeks from now. We are beyond excited. It's a little longer and heavier than I originally wanted, but after walking through it I couldn't say no. We will just have to pack a little lighter and not bring the whole house with us.

I would like to thank everyone on this forum that gave me some advice on what to look for. Also thanks in advance for all the questions to come! Can't wait for the TT and spring weather.

Tyler.

Tyler, is that for the 2016 or '17? Don't the next model years start popping up in early spring? We are looking for the same model as you. Love that thing! Gotta post pics when you get it.

Thanks wiscampsin.

Eazier I would call it a 2016.5. It has a few things that aren't on the original ones. Some of the stuff that sold us are the new led lights with a glow light switch. Turns them into a nightlight. Also has an out door kitchen now as well. Has a small fridge and a two burner cooktop by the front door. The outside scare light is also a new smaller brighter led light.

Congrats on your new 26DBH! I know that you will have lots of good memories to come from camping in it.

Thanks Terier we can't wait to start our new adventures.

Eazier I'm not real sure if there is a grill option there. We really weren't planning on buying at the show but the wife spoke up and said yes! So it was full speed ahead then. Haha. So we didn't really look at the options because this one had everything we could want and then some. I did see it has a rv quick connect there so you could set up a grill there pretty easy. That's what I have planned. Just buy a small Webber grill and connect it. We will most likely never use the cooktop burners. Maybe for breakfast. Don't you worry as soon as we get it home I will post a ton of pictures. If I can figure that out. Haha

My next question would be. What kind of WDH w/ sway control would everyone recommend? The trailer GVWR is about 8000. I'll never have it that full but would a 1000lb, 10000lb hitch be good enough. Or should I step up to the 1200/12000 lb hitch?

Thanks

I currently have a Jayco 264bh but will be upgrading to the same model you have. I have a Reese dual cam strait-line on it and it works great! Will definitely use this setup again.

I tow our 26DBH with a 10K Equal-I-Zer Hitch. We've towed in some pretty gusty conditions and its been awesome with the sway. My only complaint is that with the placement of the tow chains on the Grey Wolf, they rub on on the hitch and now need to be moved back on the tongue of the trailer. Theres a thread on it in the toy hauler section.

Kinda sad that I talked my wife into buying one 9 months early now that I hear about the outside kitchen and glow switches though.....dang!

JustB_Rad, what exactly is the glow switch(es)? The trailer already had the blue LED inside, right? Do the switches just make it dimmer?
