I just finished a 16 day camping trip with my Freedom Express 246RKS. It was the first extended camping trip with the trailer and the first with the Andersen WDH.
The first 7 days, I was camped at 7 Feathers RV Resort in Canyonville, OR. There were only 2 days it was less than 100 degrees. I was able to keep the trailer at a consistent 75 degrees the whole stay. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the insulation of the trailer. It also helped that it wasnít windy and I was able to keep the awning extended which blocked the afternoon sun (the curb side of the trailer was facing south.)
Next I went over to Florence, OR on the coast. Much cooler weather and I was able to give the a/c a break. Stayed on the coast the remaining time and stayed at 2 more rv parks. Having all the big windows was great for my stay at the coast. I was able to open them all and got some much needed fresh air after being closed up tight for 7 days in the heat.
The Andersen hitch was amazing. I donít think Iíve ever had such a pleasurable towing experience. It was SO easy to hook up and unhook each time I moved to a different park. When I hooked up yesterday, there was a crowd at a 5th wheel across the way and they all turned around so they could watch me hook up the trailer (you know, single woman, 28ft trailer, ďthis should be good entertainmentĒ) I just ignored them and went about my business. Had the trailer hooked up in about 10 minutes, did my walk around, and drove out of the park. The crowd looked disappointed LOL
It was windy (20+mph cross-winds) yesterday when I came home and I had zero sway. No really, zero. I was driving north on 101 and the wind was coming right off the ocean. The towing setup was so stable and not like any other towing experience Iíve had in the past (this is my 4th trailer). The bouncing is reduced quite a bit and that was really the reason I bought the hitch.
Iím so happy with this trailer and the hitch. In all those days of camping, I didnít have ONE thing break or not work. I leave for Seattle next Friday for the weekend, and that is one city Iím not looking forward to driving in. Iím going to try to get there about noon so hopefully Iíll miss the worst of the traffic. Iíll let you know if I survive
