So, I went to Gulfport to pick up our new trailer today. Had the walk through and the hitching lesson. It took several hours to get it all done. After the hitch was installed, they had to make a minor adjustment as it was 3/4" too low. Now, it is 1/4" high. The Ram 1500 pulls it like a dream, no issue with power at all. Didn't even really notice it back there except for the shiny aluminum thing in the rear view mirror. The Blue Ox hitch worked great. Not sure I have the Prodigy P3 setup right though I'll have to study that some more. Backed it into the driveway with no issues, but I had a great spotter...Alumitater. Tom went with me to pick up the trailer and provide moral support on the drive home. Thanks Tom!

I'll get some more pictures.

Your new trailer

My pleasure to ride along with you to pick up your new trailer...which is beautiful...and lend support whether moral or immoral! You are going to really enjoy it and will find it much more comfortable than our backpacking adventures!

Might pick up a couple of these, as you are outfitting your new baby.

We got 2 of these last year before spending 3 weeks roaming the Rocky Mountains, staying almost exlclusively in no-hookup, forest campgrounds. We had the best time.

Filled them from clear, rushing mountain rivers, and used them for hairwashing. We are not the type to strip naked in the woods to shower , but there are those that do, and these would do well for that, as well. Or, if you had one of those cabana-type, portable outdoor enclosures. We wanted to see how well they worked.....and they worked great.

These get high marks from reviewers, for their light weight and efficient warming. Light enough, filled, for a woman to manage, and warm to comfortable temps in a couole of hours in the sun. They don't leak and stow nicely in small spaces. Water pressure is decent, and their 2 1/2 gallon capacity is plenty for a comfortable shower.

Going to take them camping with the grands in a couple of weeks, where we will be in a no-hookup campground. Be great for handwashing.
