Got It Home

Picked up our XLR Wednesday and drug it home... Elected not to pay the dealer's price for any kind of WD hitch and pulled it home with just friction sway control.. no problems on the interstate at 60-65 even with big rigs passing me.. had to add about 35-40lbs of air to my rear air bags to take the bounce out of the ride.. the pickup version of the 450 rear springs are a little bouncey so even tho the 1000lbs of TW dropped the truck only about an inch, I needed to stiffin up ride a bit with air.. I am right at the edge of hitch limits or slightly ovef (once I load the Spyder) for the 2.5" class V receiver, so once I scale the setup loaded to go traveling/riding, I will be adding some kind of WD.. will need one that will work with the v-nose but between Reese, Equalizer and a couple of others that shouldn't be a problem.

Anywho, we are getting it all set up and ready to go to a small motorcycle rally next weeked (a whopping 15 miles away) and can't wait to pull it loaded.. We have been over it with a fine tooth comb and so far are pleased with what we see...

I have the XLR 29 CKV toyhauler and I love it and its the best pulling camper I have ever had. No sway and it doesn't feel like you are pulling a big parachute behind you.
