Looks good. I wish I went for the aluminium trailer. I have a standard black steel 5.5x10 and needs a paint job after only 3 years.

The best thing is it only weighs 300 lbs. But it is only 8ft long compared to the 7x12 I had that weighed around 1200.

Maybe it's the pic, but you sure look nose-high!

It is a little, not quite as bad as the pic looks. Can't do much about it without getting another truck. The fiver barely fits in it's metal cover now since it was built for our previous Class C motor home. Raising the Wildcat would mean I can't get it under the cover. Since Ram 4x4's are so tall, the only other option is getting a lower truck and since this one is paid for, that's not happening in the near future.

This pic from another angle shows it's not as bad as the previous pic appears. We won't be towing the ATV very much, usually just fairly local when we dry camp here in northern Nevada....

If you are a little nose high & you have 6 or more inches of clearance between the bed rails and the bottom of the 5'er, you could raise your pinbox up into the nose of the 5'er one set of holes (depending on make of your pinbox) or lower the hitch in the truck down one set of holes (if even that is possible).
We had to do a combo of both to get the 5'er to be close to level and I still came away with 5 1/4" of clearance on my RAM. So far, I've only come close to the bottom of the 5'er once, and that was a really off angle transition while turning.

Its 35ft. 312QBUD its a great layout for a family. We love it now that its all set up our way. Only down side is it is on the heavy side, dont ever go by what the dealers say on weight.
