We finally did it -- New Puma coming
Last week, I bought a 2011 Silverado, diesel, crew cab, long bed, 4x4. It has the factory trailer brake controller and exhaust brake. I'm not yet sure of what to do with the two 250 amp alternators.
Today, I placed an order for a new Palomino, Puma 253-FBS. Our 19' class B was great for weekends, and tolerable for 2-3 week vacations. Now that I'm retired, we've been going out for 6-8 weeks and feeling a bit cramped. The new 27' 5er will seem absolutely palatial. It will be hard to wait.
I am looking at the Reese Pro 20K hitch. The weight rating is overkill, but I like the double jaws better than the slide latch on the lighter hitches. The new "outboard" installation kit looks simple enough that I am thinking of doing the installation myself. Does anybody have experience with this kind of installation?
