Wife is after me to sell my 91 short bed 4wd Silverado though, but I'm stalling!

You got lucky! We normally go once a year but didnt go this year. Seems like they are having it pretty rough right now!

Where did you stay? We have only stayed at Camp Hatteras and really like it. Hopefully we go back next year, cause I have my eye on a bay front site.

Obviously I meant sound and not bay. We have scoped out a few sites we really like backed up to it. That's where we will be when we go back.

I just look that up. Looks nice. Wished I had know it was there. We went to the point during our stay. Could have went down and checked it out.

Thoughts on level? Does it look nose up? Trying to get the air bags dialed in with the eq 10000

Flip your hitch shank over and move one set of holes down with the hitch. That should drop the nose of the trailer down just enough. Just moved to a 5vr so selling my Equalizer. Of course in the pic it looks like the ground might not be perfectly flat either which can obviously play tricks with your eyes.

Yea, the ground wasn't level. I'll have to check again but it does seem a little nose high with the bags at 10 psi(with the trailer hitched). I checked the air and it was 4.5psi when I unhooked the trailer. Went with some friends and they have this rig. Sure makes me want to go upgrade truck and trailer

Need a wide load banner too. That slide adds quite a bit of width.
