Hi Kaz1, we are loving our new RV. I 'm in the same boat as you are with the TV.. But my dealer assured me that I shouldn't have any problem with my Truck... Attached is a picture with my truck and the trailer.





My truck didn't sag or bugged down nor did it have a problem going uphill but of course diesel is still the preferred TV..

Concerning the trash, my wife is still searching for a better place to put the trash can. The designer of this trailer omitted that part.... But minor issue to be concerned of. I just throw the trash everyday.... LOL...

Here's a pic at the camping ground inside the Base..

Rambilt, you stated that you only used the one A/C and I see you have two. Which A/C did you use that cooled the trailer fine and what were the temps you were dealing with. We only have the 13.5 single A/C as most of our camping is in Michigan & Ontario and night time temps are usually no more the mad 70's at the worst and so concerned as to how effective the single 13.5 A/C should be.

MarcusN, the spot that we got only had a 30 amp connection. Thank god for Walmart for carrying the 50 to 30 amp adapter. We use the main A/C only, the pole circuit breaker couldn't handle the second A/C. The temperature last Saturday was 103F degrees.

We bought an oval stainless steel trash can from WalMart and put it right inside the door between the fire extinguisher and the Entertainment/Dinette slide. Oval= it doesn't tip over, and we don't have to move it from that location to close the slide. It also helps keep you from bumping into the fire extinguisher. It uses tall kitchen bags, so all the paper plates and stuff don't fill it up right away.

Our 2013 Platinum with all options except 2nd air was $29.5 plus tax. We added slide toppers and JT Strongarms at the dealer to that.
