2018 27vrl

We are looking at an 18 27VRL. If anyone has this model, how well do the separate gray tanks for the kitchen and bathroom work out? Any other pro/cons for this model? Thanks in advance!

Mine is a 2016. We are on our 5th season with it and still satisfied. Nothing serious has gone haywire. There's always little stuff you have to take care of. That's rving!

I had read on another forum that one of the bathroom sinks is plumbed into the black tank. Is that accurate?

we just traded in our 2016 27vrl for a 2019 29rsws. we loved the tt but since we retired and traveled alot last year, we found that some aspects were getting a bit harder for us to do. for instance putting the table down for travel, positioning the chairs and putting the slides out. our buttons were on the end of the top cabinets and hubby had to climb in one of the chairs to reach it to do the slides. also the drains were directly under the slides and hard to drain without crawling under the slides. we really (i) loved the bathroom and both sinks and shower drain into a bathroom gray tank, kithcen had it's own tank. we had the usual small problems and fixed them ourself. one thing i just thought of, find out where the slide fuses are located. our fuses were located at the front of the trailer as a line fuse. we got to our designation one time and the slides didn't work, hubby made a call to our dealer and they forgot to tell us about the slide fuses and their location.

I'm not sure how much I dislike having to crawl under the slides to deal with hoses. I typically don't hook up the hoses and leave them out, I just hook them up when I'm going to use them and put them up so it would mean crawling under the slides to deal with. Really impressed with the RV though. Very nice.

Jeff64, I noticed we have basically the same truck. How do you like towing it with your truck?

dugwms, my husband cussed those drain connections a lot, especially when he forgot to hook the sewer hoses up before he put the two slides out. we dearly loved the trailer but we found one that is easier to set up and drain connection isn't under a slide. we bought a 2019 29rsws three feet longer than the v lite and two opposing slides in the back. gives us a lot more room.

It's fine. Mileage isnt anything to write home about, but you know that. I'm sure you got the bigger tires and rims than mine. Your tongue wt is less too

The hose business only matters in a fhu site. But,you would set the hoses, wyes etc before you put out the slides
