Hey All! I was very thankful to have found the Forest River Forums as my wife and I searched for a new camper. We found lots of great advice and ideas for selecting a camper to match our tow vehicle. We traded a Starcraft AR-One BH for a Solaire 317BHSK. We simply fell in love with it! We have 2 kids (4 and 8), so the added room with the bunk room in the back and the two slides are just marvelous! And I like the additional touches throughout, so it seems like Palomino didn't skimp on the details. I just picked it up and drove it home yesterday (about an 80 mile journey on I-20). I was SO impressed with how well it towed. Considering I made a significant jump in height, length, and weight (2500 pounds more) over the Starcraft, I was expected a big difference - like my 1/2 ton truck was gonna get tossed around a little bit more by the trailer. But I noticed no difference in sway, acceleration, stopping, etc. Even when the big rigs came racing by I didn't feel any more pull or push than I had experienced with the starcraft. We are greatly looking forward to our first trip, which sadly isn't for about 3 more weeks!
I attached a pic of the set up.
Cheers, and thank you all for participating in this forum and the help you are to people like me!
