    I would like to ask a question....if I may.
    I note you tow with a Ford F-350. We do the same with our 2002 350 with a 27 FB International. I am concerned about shock transfer to the trailer from the heavy springs on our dually truck.
    Have you done anything to make the ride a bit softer?
    Also, do you use a WD hitch? What type do you prefer? At present we use an anti sway bar...only.
    We have had both the truck and the trailer but one season and are anxious to learn. Both are hibernating in Everett in WA at the moment. The trailer we purchased as our US home. Beats mooching, you see. My Thai wife and I have been living in Thailand for the last 10 years and are making a gradual change to the US...quite a challenge for her.
    Thanks in advance. Cheers, Gordon & Air.

    Just looking at the picture of your dogs. The Black dog has such pleading eyes. Really cute.

    Thank you. We had one on our 2012, installed by our dealer, but they cannot get it on our 2015 due to the raised center of the roof, unless we do away with a skylight. Will probably continue to use the portable, but switch to a wineguard.

    Thank You

    Satellite dish was dealer installed prior to delivery because there wasn't a factory option. Only available space on the roof for the dish was near the front of the trailer on the street side. The dome housing the dish is clearly visible in my posted photos. Also, the photo of the trailer on a ferry has a decent view of the roof. I can email you a better photo of the roof if you want.
    I was fortunate the dealer had a competent technician who installed the dish & other satellite equipment. The receiver is in the right front overhead compartment with the DVD player. No wires are visible inside the trailer. The solar panels were factory installed just in from the mid-roof skylight. This is a DirecTV dish made by Winegard. Since a dish on the roof is occasionally obstructed, I also have Winegard portable dish. Connections for the portable unit were installed in the refrigerator service bay located behind the external panel. Hope this makes sense!
    Let me know if you need anything else.
