2013 Work & Play 18EC Comes Home ...

I have been a member here for some time when we decided to start looking for a toy hauler since this time last year. Primarily we are interested in using it for bike rallies .... the wife wants a toilet and shower ... !

We started looking for a 16UL and finally found two we were interested in ... one a private sale (8 hours away) and another at a dealer (2 hours away). We decided to look at the used unit at the dealer since it was closer and would negotiate the private sale for purchase. As I figured, once inside, the wife thought it was really small ... really, really small. Of course, she meandered over to an 18EC. The 16UL was soon "out" in case we decided to take a few vacations in it.

After a successful negotiation with the same dealer on a used (but in brand new condition) 18EC, here she is ..... on the way home and at home ...

I have the same trailer with the bulbus nose cap and the same graghics and color. After working out a few kinks for several months we now like it. Can haul a M/C and not have to remove it overnight for use of refer,micro, stove sink, bath, and the murphy bed.

I wanted a blue one with the nose cap, but they were waaaay expensive. We got a smokin' deal on this as new, used one saving $10k over a blue one I found online.

Does the nose cap make any difference in hauling or mileage?

I honestly do not think so. I would have to see test results to be convinced.

It does improve the looks 200 percent in my humble opinion.

I was just curious, but I agree, it does a lot for the aesthetics of the hauler.

By the way, what color do you have?

Same color as pictured above with same graghics. I only wish it had Dexter axles with torsion bar suspension.
