Another thing we did was get rid of the cushions from the bunk slide and get a small Ikea futon since my son is 6' 1". It is a high quality rig and with the 4 slides get ready for LOTS of attention at the CG's! PM me if you have any questions..... ENJOY!!!

BiigDaddy, how is this monster to tow? I have a F350 long bed crewcab and my current trailer is 28' long. Im alittle worried about the extra length on already long truck. How is yours?

pulling is not going to be a issue. More backing up a long wheelbase truck and a 35' trailer hanging off the back lol

Fair enough u have a beast for a tow vehicle. I had a 26' prior and honestly I've been able to get into 95% of the same spots. Man that long wheel base will sure ride nice. Have fun this weekend wish I was goin with ya.

Firedaniel, Colem is spot on about your towing concerns...you won't have any. One thing to note is the Torsion Axle Rubber-Ryde Suspension. Dang does it make that thing tow smooth! My '11 Puma had me feeling every bump and concrete strip, but not the 8327. Even the speed bumps at work are almost undetectable.

Sharkbate, you and Firedaniel are both going to LOVE this rig. The layout and the quality are top notch! I also have to agree with firedaniel that DW and I both joke about it being nicer than our house too!!

Keep us updated!

Oh, hey Colem, did you ever use the Furrion back up camera?

No I'm hope to make it to one of the frog rallies this summer. I was told they offer the camera kit cheaper there. My dealer does not carry the furrion brand and seems less then interested in helping me get the one that fits. I'm going thru camper withdrawals. Enjoy your big trip coming up and BTW south Dakota was awesome this summer. I took 2 weeks off work and honestly this size camper everyone felt we had plenty of room which made the trip even better.

Well we picked up the trailer yesterday. Transferred everything from our old Wildwood. It felt like moving a house. Lol Very smooth experience with the dealer. We went straight to a state park to do our shake down cruise. I can't describe how much easier this Rockford tows! So much better than the old wildwood. We got setup very easy setup. The trailer has been perfect. except the dang iRv Audio system is on the fritz. When it's on it sounds like a bad cell phone call. Audio cutting in and out. Anyone else have issues with it? It's a IRV66.

Other than that love all the extra room! Looking forward to many trips! Click image for larger version
