So far it has worked fine. Dave puts a container about the size of a carryon suitcase with miscellaneous items such as oil, hazard signs, brake fluid, etc in the truck bed along with a milk crate containing the chocks and leveling pads. We could still fit some other small items, water jugs, etc. This is all placed between the hitch and the cab...not behind the hitch and it is all much lower than the hitch. (Given that the truck bed is not covered we wouldn't want to store much of value there since it is wide open when we are stopped on the road to go into a store of something.) Everything else we stow in the trailer or the back seat of the truck. We don't take a huge amount of stuff anyway. Even the screen room will fit under the dinette seat in the trailer.

Just got back for a 2 night trip to a state park...everything went great!

I think learning to travel lite is the key, something I need to work on. I sent you a duplicate question earlier thinking you might get it on that thread, please disregard.

Thanks again,

Whom Is This?


Caught this one on the road with TX plates on 90 East In MA on 29 July, I did beep when I went by and even slowed to see if you were heading as far north as I was figured on introducing myself.
