Well done! If you baby it like the previous owners, it will last several lifetimes!

We'll know you took delivery of your AS when your profile is changed from "Currently looking..."

Thank you all again........the owner is supposed to deliver it to us in the next week or so.

I have a 30 amp station and power pole ready for her to sit next to.

I will have to figure out how I'm going to get her turned when I get ready to go camping........that is no big deal I hope.

I made my turn around and backing spot for a 27 ft so I'll probably extend it about 5 ft more.

I just hope my Triton F 250 will pull this thing.........

Send us a couple of photos of your trailer site and surrounding area. Maybe we can come up with a turn around/backing solution.

As to the F-250, it should be able to handle the job.

Do you already have a trailer brake controller and a hitch system?

Brian

Brian, I do have a brake controller. I pulled a 27 ft Mallard camper with my F250 and it handled it well. It was an older model 20 years old so I guess it was pretty heavy.

GVW on my Mallard (89 model) was 7260 I think. (3350 each axle)

I wish I knew the dry weight......

I can not get pics of my turn around right now because I don't have a camera but appreciate the offer to help.

I will just have to make all this work and it may take some figuring.

Thanks for all the help and comments as I need all the help I can get and will be asking for advice for a long time I am sure.

Robbie R.
