Yes Buffalohunter - big question of ours to get answered also. I will absolutely see what I can find out. That space tween wardrobe and ceiling is about 19"? Checking on what size LED screen will fit on a mount there. If I can't get some specs I will keep my eyes open and forward what I can find out.

It does great. I have been amazed with the horse power and torque that the Tundra has. I tow in the Sierra's a lot and the altitude doesn't slow it down like it did my other trucks. Another thing I like is the braking ability. Oh yeah and the 6 speed automatic transmission with "Tow Haul" is awesome too. In down hill conditions I shift into manual mode and save on the brakes anyway, but I have never experienced brake fade at all.

I have never felt like I need more truck to pull the trailer or safely stop it.

Skabi,

You are pretty close with the 19" estimate. It might be a little shy of that. I have a 27" Samsung LED display that is 16 3/4" tall w/o the stand. If I can find a stud I plan to mount it in the space above the wardrobe.

I really appreciate your help.

Great! Thanks for the information. It means a lot to hear from someone already towing the combination we will have here soon.

We did a factory tour about 3 weeks ago. You do not see the build of the walls. They are built in another climate controlled facility and then the walls are brought over to the factory where the trailers are built already made. Sorry to disappoint about knowing where the studs are.

As for the tour it was awesome! We went when they were building the Windjammers and V-Lites too. We should get our 30WTBS in a few weeks.

Enjoy the tour and ask any questions you want. YOu will be impressed with the quality control and inspections of the builds. Have fun!
