So, Iím driving down the roadÖ.
Ö and I see a nice looking travel trailer parked in a lot adjacent to a nearby McDonalds. I can see itís a Rockwood, and itís an emerald edition, so it stands out to my eye Ė probably because I have one on order. So Iím thinking, that doesnít look as big as their signature series, and Iím wondering what model it is. I turn around and go back to check it out, and next I notice itís being towed by a 3500 dually. Hmmm, thatís a big truck for this 30í trailer, I wonder if itís in transport to a dealer maybe??
I pull up alongside and notice it does in fact have transport plates from Indiana. My heart flutters a bit, because the trailer that I ordered was supposedly off line yesterday on the 11th. Iím thinking could it be?? Nah, itís too soon, canít be mine, besides the dealer that I bought it from is 150 miles from here. Then I notice that itís a 2604ws Emerald edition, same that I ordered. And I notice it has all of the same options that I orderedÖ. Itís got slide toppers, 3 three vent fans, and manual stabilizer jacks. Thatís very oddÖ. Not being one to believe in coincidence, I begin to think that maybe this is my new trailer. So I get out and look around, snap some pictures, write down the VIN, etc. I decide to wait for the driver to come out and see where this trailer is headed.
The driver was a very pleasant woman, I told her that I thought it might be my trailer and asked where it was headed. Sure enough, itís my new trailer!!! I didnít expect it for a couple weeks. The driver talked with me for a while, and wanted to know how far she was from the dealer. I asked if I could open the door and take a lookÖ she grabbed the keys -- how cool is that??? So I looked it over, called my wife to tell her and then thanked the lady for her time.
After I got back on the expressway, I got to thinking that I should have followed her to watch how the trailer was tracking. I pulled over on an exit and watched for her to go by, and followed her for about 10 miles. The trailer never weaved, it tracked straight as an arrowÖ she didnít even have a WDH. I asked her about that, and she said that with the dually, she didnít usually put bars on unless it was over 30í. Mine is just 30íÖ. She said it pulled great. I have a bunch of pics, Iíll see if I can get them from my phone.
