Hello from new member with new Rockwood 8311ws on order!

Thanks all. Been away for a while dealing with work stuff, and I'm just checking back in. Anxiously awaiting delivery of the camper. I'm running a Prodigy P2 brake controller, and I opted for an Equalizer hitch (the 12K), so I hope I like it. Read lots of positive things about it, but I have no personal experience with them.

Spending time now cutting down some trees in my yard making room for a place to park this beast. I have a nice 35ft gravel pad to park it on, the challenge is gonna be backing it onto my property from the road. Taking down a few trees has given me more wiggle room, but I'm still concerned with being able to back it in (need to make a pretty sharp backing turn). Hoping for the best.

For those with this trailer or similar, are they bad about bottoming out? Seems like the rear stabilizing jacks would be the most likely to scrape?

Also, can anyone recommend a good cover? Brand/length for a good fit?

Those from Texas wish for a second A/C ;-} I was thinking it would be nice to have built in electric ducted heating!

Refilling propane or lugging portable heaters gets to be a nuisance.

Quick response. YES. It does have limited clearance in back. We busted our rear power Jacks pulling out of storage when the road was under construction. 😡
Watch those driveways.

It fit nice and after three months still is on as tight as the day I installed it. I have noticed the tops of the speakers and lights start to yellow a little from the Uv after one winter of being stored without the cover. I believe it's a good investment

Looks nice. When you say for the 34', is that the one for 31'-34' or 34'-37'?
