This is the last one, hopefully.

Found this '08 34' S/O parked on a ranch in California since new, and negotiated a deal. Other than some sun damage on the plastic parts, it's in really nice shape.

Our '10 31' Classic Limited will soon be for sale. Watch for the add in the classifieds.

Welcome to the Alumaliner

Congrats Steve on the 34, you will love it. Never have owned a trailer with a slide but they really open things up inside, especially on a widebody.

Smooth sailing.

John

Hey Congrats, that is one bueatiful 34. Have you noticed maneuvering/towing between the two. We wanted a 34 but went with the 30fter, the 34 scared my wife (and me to). But man are they cool.

My hubby was concerned about towing a 34' but says it pulls easier and handles better than our previous 31' Classic. He loves U-turns!!

That sure is a super fine trailer.
Excellent choice for the "last one".
Maybe someday I can get my "last one".
I particularly like some aspects of the layout 34 versus the 30 like the placement of the microwave. I hate where the microwave is in my 30.
More closet space is good, too.

Thanks, and we really like it so far (Just been cleaning and putting our stuff in it), and it does have lots more storage space than the 31'.

Towing is a little different, but not much. I've towed single axle, lots of tandems, and now a triple axle. The single is easier to tow in that it takes less power to move it, the tandem is a little more stable, and the 34' is even more stable, but a little heavier. However the Cummins Diesel really doesn't know the difference in the weight.

Bringing it back from California, I did notice the wind "wave" from passing trucks effecting the 34 a little more than the 31, probably because it is longer, but it's a very small difference.

When I was very young, my Dad once told me, "If you're going to pull a trailer, it might as well be 40 foot long because there's not that much difference". I didn't believe him at the time.

The longer I live, the smarter my Dad becomes.

Saw a westbound 34' pulled by a Dodge at IH-10 MM99 on Saturday afternoon as I was caught in a miles-long back up in the opposite direction. The truck made me think of you, but figured it a fluke as the TT was "wrong". As I was attempting an end run around "Winter Storm Boreas" I also wondered at anyone heading towards it, but yanking a 34' A/S beat towing some trailers I saw that day heading towards El Paso. Negotiating the ice the next morning I REALLY wondered at some folks as TXDOT and NMDOT closed a 300' mile secton of the Interstate from Ft. Stockton to Las Cruces just after I'd made the last 99-miles of it headed back for Houston out of Moab, UT on an oilfield run.
