The fact that many of you presently own 34's & (apparently) get along alright with them...was a big part in our decision to take the plunge...& so that leads me to a big question to all of you 34 owners out there...
Owning to her size...because with the tow vehicle it's "a pretty long proposition"...are there any special considerations about owning the 34 that I should be keeping in mind ?
Have you folks that own 34's found that there are any real issues due to her size ?
Many, many thanks in advance to those who kindly respond !!
CONGRATS Paul on your purchase, I believe that you will find that after having one for awhile that you will wonder how you ever got along without one. One thing you should be aware of is the temptation to carry more than you should with all the extra space which is going to effect your load ratios and make you over weight or over on front or rear. What type of Tow Vehicle (TV) have you decided on? with this trailer it should be at least a 3/4 ton. One thing that you may also consider is a set of Ride Rites for the TV rear, I just put a set on my 05 Excursion and what a difference in towing and ride.
We bought a 1997 34WB Legend Norman Rockwell edition and tow it with a Ford Excursion. We love the 34, but unfortunately the following is growing smaller and smaller which means that the amount of 34 owners are less and less.
