but had no issues on the 2 hour drive home. This weekend will be more of a test.
Sounds like a nice rig, we love pictures.

Sigh.

When we got married I told my wife only one of us gets to be crazy at a time.
Works for us!

all of the above were impulse buys by my wife, I won't mention the trucks I had to buy to tow above RV's but there were 3 of them, the last one we bought was right after she got fired from Florida Hospital, she thought it made sense.

Here is a picture as it sat at the dealer. Rides high in front but not as bad as it looks. Also had installed air bags but apparently I don't need them. I got it closer to level now but it is still a little higher than I would like. It is the first time I pulled a 5er so I am still figuring a few things out.

After our first trip I dropped my hitch head three inches, still need to see if it was enough.
