Well as luck would have it, apparently I misunderstood the dealer and it is being built May 4, not shipped May 4th. Not a big deal, but now that I have too much time on my hands in the evenings it has had me 2nd guessing myself and researching more toy haulers. The 27RR still looks to be the best bang for the buck and one of the few with a garage deep enough for our RZR. Now to learn patience.................LOL

I'm not positive but I think the cargo ramp is only rated for 1600 lbs. I believe you said in a previous post the Desert Edition rzr weighs 1700 lbs.

It's easy enough to lighten the little piggy up. LOL We put a custom cage on it a few weeks back and therefore ditched the spare tire and spare tire carrier and also use a Yeti and a Action Packer in the bed of it that can certainly be transported in the bed of the truck instead. That 'should' have me real close to 1600 lbs. (or at least until I put 32" Roctanes on it. LOL

So I discovered last night that gel coat exterior walls IS a option and looks GREAT! Call my local dealer today and it's too late to change the order now.................................


I wish I had discovered the gel coat option 2 weeks ago.......


He is willing to stock the one that is coming in and order me another one, but then I would have to wait till mid June to receive it and that ain't going to happen. LOL Me and my instant gratification addiction!

When I bought mine I looked into that option as I really liked the appearance. However I found
the additional weight of the gelcoat option reduces the overall load capacity of the trailer.

The load capacity is not affected very much. Mine only changed 100 pounds. I have not seen many of them like. I am glad I chose that option.

Two new questions from a new owner. On the 27RR how do you manually crank in the awning and how do you manually crank in the slide out. I have not had to do this, but reading other forums, others have. Anyone out there with a 27RR know how to do this. Also, I understand you can manually crank the electric jack up front. However, I can not find that either. I think it is under the circular level on the jack. I need to remove it because it is useless anyway, to see if I can find it.

Not that is matters at this point, but what is the 'posted' ccc on your toy hauler?

As for manual use of things, ours should be in by the end of next week. When we take delivery I will find out and let you know how its done.

Is it safe to ASSUME these are built on 5200lb axles? I'm really not looking to overload the crap out of ours the first day, but we will be at max weight at all times when towing. I guess I am still nervous that one of the most affordable toy haulers is the ONLY toy hauler that really fits our needs. LOL I guess I need to relax and enjoy it when it finally gets here.
