I've had no issues with towing. The truck pulls it fine. Will stay in 5th gear at 2500-3000 rpm on hill climbs no problem. The fuel economy went down a bit of course. I have kind of a heavy foot though. The Husky weight distribution hitch with sway control helps out a lot. It makes you feel more in control of the trailer.

Isn't that a 21bd. I see a front starage deck and the slide out looks different.

Wow, sharp eyes! You are right...I guess we are not quite twins.

Just converted the outside refrigerator opening to a multipurpose area. I added a doggie door on the inside and a drop in cage front for when the dogs want to hang with us. Also a great spot for the generators during travel. I can still put the fridge in when we need it too.

Added a fold away seat / dog step. Our dogs are small and one can't make the jump. I did this a few months ago.

Added the second outlet cover to add HDMI, video and audio jacks. Makes leaving the playsrltation, bluray player, directv box inside much easier.

Added a new battery and changed to 2 6v batteries. The old tray wasn't big enough, by 1/8 of an inch. So I was forced to build a new one and rip the old one out. Each trailer is probably different here since they are all hand welded from the factory. Had to grind off the welds and reweld a new mount for the aluminum tray. All in all it'll work for us just fine. I also added a voltage monitor at the panel.

We needed it for extended stays at races where generators can't run all night so we still have all of the fun and excitement all night long.

Added a hitch receiver on the front of the trailer to attach the WDH when at the park or site. It locks. Very handy. And covered by the front bunk from rain.
