New 22RR Owner!

I am taking delivery of my 2016 22RR in the next couple weeks. Wondering if anyone could offer me any advice on it and any must have modifications or accessories. Thanks in advance!

Congrats on the purchase of the 22rr. We liked the layout, but there was not enough room to fit our toy, so we opted for the 26rr which we just secured yesterday. We'll also be picking ours up in a couple of weeks.

I had the same question asking for advice on any essential necessities. I remember seeing a post somewhere, but can't find it.

What are you hauling? We bought ours for a motorcycle primarily. I am buying it sight unseen so I hope it is as big as it appears to be.

Kawasaki Mule 610 for now, possibly replacing it with a golf cart. I think you will be fine. It was the distance between the cabinet and the counter that kept the front end of the mule from fitting.

I have a new 26RR. Looked at the 22RR first but liked the window. Valkyrie fits easily so even a trike should fit.
Not so much new stuff but several mods are handy. Add shelves under tv, longer screws in tv mount, foam mattress, shocks on bed trap door and cupboards that open up, redo straps on couches so you can store backs on top when folded up. I added 2 ' to the tailgate and put on longer bumpers so bike would not bottom out when loading. I moved the slinky storage to the tongue and added a battery.
Some things to add as you go along. A couple of water hoses, hose gaskets, pressure regulator and filter. Surge guard, 30 amp to 20 amp adapter and a heavy extension cord, leggos for the jacks, wheel chocks and misc blocks.
Word of warning. Don't let better half go to rv store alone with cc, don't ask me how I know.
Enjoy, you made a good selection.

Interested in the adding 2' to the tail gate...your bike would bottom out when loading? And how exactly did you go about fixing the issue?

Added a 2' x 4 ' 3/4 plywood hinged on the tailgate. Used three sturdy hinges and left a small gap so gate would hinge down slightly. Mounted the hinges on top with metal screws on the gate and carriage bolts on the wood. Added 2.5 inch rubber bumpers to the 1 inch bumpers on the outside rear of gate. Painted the side showing on the inside black. I use a short piece of 2 x 6 in the space over the gate to trailer gap to drive over. I posted pictures on one of the 26RR discussions. Now I am trying to get bike positioned so tongue weight is correct. I have about 20% on tongue.

Wow all kinds of things I haven't thought of yet. My bike is about 900lbs I wouldn't of even thought about tongue weights etc. I just assumed it was designed to haul all the eight in the rear

New 22RR Owner!

You can just put 22rr in search at top of page and you will receive all threads that discuss the 22rr. I went with the 26rr also after being inside both. The mods I have done on my 26 rr is under the thread " pimp my 26 rr". I haul a vtx 1300. It's over 8 ft long so went with bigger trailer. My mods were drawers under bed. Reconfigured couches in back added storage. New memory foam mattress. Closed off some heat vent and air vent to get more even temps in bedroom and back of trailer. Bike chock hookup. Shelves in pantry under TV I. 26 rr. I believe TV is accross from the benches in the back in 22rr. I didike pantry in 22rr but the openness of 26rr sold us. Good luck.

Well...after the dealership overnighted the paperwork to sign for the 22rr and I started reading about all the 26rr posts and researched that model more closely....I just called my sales guy. While he may be slightly annoyed with me we are now going to be new owners of a 26rr instead! I can't believe I overlooked that model initially. I'm buying it sight unseen so I haven't been able to see either unit in person, but u think the 26rr will better suit us. Thanks everyone!
