Open Road Around the Corner
Some may find this crazy... we just ordered a new 2506S but decided to keep our 5th wheel that we've had for years. We love the quality of our Excel 5er but discovered, as we tested the retirement waters last spring in the southwest, 35' is a great way to enjoy RV living but kept us from getting to many of the places we wanted to explore. We recently sold the house near the lake along with everything we owned, except for things that we could use in the RV. My brother called me crazy but it's not his life, right? We have a few places through friends and family to park both RVs and we'll decide which trailer to use depending on where we're going and how long we'll be gone. Not completely crazy, eh? I wanted the 21DS but the DW wasn't going for that so we settled on the 2506S.
Our last TT was in the late 90's so I'm getting reacquainted with TTs and a bit wrapped around the axle on things like upgraded tires and a decent hitch that doesn't make enough noise to wake the dead. We've had the 5th wheel for years and the tires are large enough that we can go with commercial grade, making choices easy. I see the Goodyear Endurance in 215/75/14 will be our likely choice. As far as the hitch, I remember how loud our last WD hitch was and I'm thinking the Equal-i-zer 1200/12k with the friction pads to help with noise might work.
Regardless, I'm looking forward to gathering knowledge from this group on our new Rockwood.
