The rear windows (understood to be on the rear wall either side of the TV) on your RLWS open? Must be a new feature for the 2015 model as they don't open on my 2014 RLWS.

Yes, mine is a 2015, but is not the Emerald Package either... hey I have an all white truck. The long term plan is to decal the truck to match the trailer.

Oh, and I forgot to mention I'm taking the sofa bed apart to weld it. One of the support rods was never attached.

Last year I was making fun of my friends with new trailers who always seemed to be fixing something, while my 1977 Layton 220 that I bought used in '91 for $4995 and just sold for $4000 never gave me any trouble other than a window crank every couple of years. All original, everything works.

So it appears that the Emerald package with the flush euro style windows deletes the rear window open capability. I might have even known that when I was buying but had since forgotten. We did like the Emerald and have since added a second Fantastic Fan in the living room area. In non-summer months we can leave the screen door open and have the rear FF pull the air through so the lack of rear windows is not that much of a loss for us.

27RLWS

Wayne does your TT sit lower on the kitchen side than the dinette side? I just noticed I have less wheel clearance on the left side of the TT than the curb side and there is no way of adjusting it.

We just finished a 1,200 mile trip and it towed great, even in the Smoky Mountains. Like Wmoses, 60 mph seems to be the place to be.

We lived in it for three weeks and my two year old and I were in it most weekdays while my wife was at work (weather was hot and nasty). Plenty of room!

Our shower did start leaking while we were on the trip. We discovered it when water started running out into the kitchen! Ruled out drain and the nozzle/knob panel. It only leaks when water is hitting the left wall so we were still able to use it. It's now at the dealer waiting to be fixed.

Overall, we love our trailer!
Thanks for the info! I don't have a weekend off till end of June to try it out. Sounds like I better take some silicone caulk for the shower when we go camping. Dan

Not that I have noticed, Chuck. I don't think so. The only way to truly know is to park on level asphalt and then measure. Any other condition and it could be the terrain causing the unlevel attitude. I have not parked on level terrain in a while. Hope I remember to check next time.
