So sorry to hear of your shop and trailer loss, but you are going to LOVE your 34'! We went from a 1977 23' Safari, to a 72 31' Sovereign
, to an '86 34' Ltd, and have used the earlier trailers very little since because the 34' is so comfortable. In fact we sold the Sovereign
because we knew we'd never take it out as long as the 34' is available; they really duplicate each other. Our shorties are for boondocking, shorter trips, places with shorter parking sites.
We have to back the 34' in our driveway over a sharp dip (when our road was paved, they raised the surface several inches, creating the dip) between where the ditch runs under the driveway, and it works just fine: a little practice is all you need. So far we have kept our monster out of the ditch. Enjoy your new 34'!
