Can't suggest strongly enough to invest in a Sherline Gauge to get the tongue weights with different loading configurations. I think you would find it worth its weight in gold. (Well, maybe silver.)

Good advice. I've been thinking about selling the 30wr and getting a fifth wheel TH, but if I keep it I am going to get more smarter on what tongue weight works best.

Just got rzr home from camp . So in the next day or too I`ll reweigh tongue weight with rzr drove in and backed in . Post my results and maybe that will help some of you .

Reweighed trailer @ hitched height empty was 1450. With rzr drove in it was 1125 and backed in was 1100, So I`ll be over 1200 by the time I`m ready to roll.
I`m on the fence to run the equalizer with 1200 bars or use my old reese dual cams with 1500 bars.

I was shocked also. Then I got thinking its lighter backed in because your putting more weight closer to the axles of trailer . Hope it helps you enjoy your 30wr. I haven`t gotten to use mine yet but can`t wait.

Thanks ,I noticed hauling it home that it didn`t tow any harder than the 24 foot toy hauler I just traded. First trip is from western new York to northern new Hampshire. Going up and atv, ride the wilds trail system . I`m sure I`ll love the trailer. Mainly bought it because you can stop and sleep without unloading the rzr.

Yep the 30WR meets two requirements for me, a separate garage and a bedroom with a door. I like to get up early and drink coffee while the wife sleeps!

I would agree. Was the best floor plan work n play had for my needs. I didn`t want or need a slide out. Didn`t want to sleep on a murphy bed either.
