Oh yeah, I forgot one other enjoyable part of the switch from TT to 5er: pretty much no sway while driving! Before we traded, I was gripping the wheel tightly and dreading big trucks, crosswinds, etc while pulling the TT. Made for a nerve-racking trip each time out. We contemplated buying one of those $2500+ anti-sway deals like Pro Pride or Hensley arrow.

But with the 5er, sway is all but gone, and I can drive much less stressed now! I still respect the load - a lotta weight back there, but can tow with peace of mind, a more relaxed grip on the wheel, and don't "feel" every tractor trailer and crosswind we encounter.

Viva la difference!!!

Measure the height of your 5vr, measure it at the highest point hitched and on level ground. Be aware of low clearances. You'll be fine for the most part. Just don't forget you have a tall coach particularly with a big long unit.

Have fun enjoy the ride.
