Our 5.0

Hi Folks: We took our first trip since returning from Chilliwack. We went to Cape Disapppointment Park on the Long Beach penninsula in Washington. Nice place on the Washington coast - good facilities and great location. Although it rained most of the time ( goes with living here in the Northwest ) , we really enjoyed our stay. Can't say enough about how happy we are with our new trailer - such a great design and craftmanship.

Re: Our 5.0

Hi All - Our Frontier is a King Cab with the standard six foot bed. It tows really well and is a good fit for the 5.0. That is a wonderful bridge. You may be interested in an annual event. It's called the Great Columbia Crossing in which they limit the bridge to one lane of traffic on that day and allow walkers / runners to cross the bridge. It's a fun day and a good way to experience the Columbia up close at that point where it meets the Pacific.

Re: Our 5.0

I like the extra vent up front too! Would give nice ventilation when not using any forced air.
Of course, I couldn't do that now, what with my star gazing modification that Jim did!

Re: Our 5.0

Good looking rig. 8)

A couple of questions:
Did you have the hitch installed in Chilliwack?
How far can the Nissan turn before the nose of trailer touches the cab?

Thanks,

Bill

Re: Our 5.0

Tammy arranged for our hitch in Chilliwack, and they were very efficent!
You can do a 90 degree if you had to, but 45 is a normal angle with no problem.

Re: Our 5.0

Hi Bill - we also had our hitch installed in Chilliwack at a local place arranged by Tammy. As Hokie mentioned, very efficient and completed the same day we picked up our trailer. We have no problems with the cab hitting the trailer while driving and turning. When backing up into a spot , we would hit the cab if we turn too far.
