Yes I agree, very nice guy, he just wants to make sure what we buy, we want and we're comfortable driving with it. Also, it sits higher then other trailers, and he was suggesting a trailer that was lower. I will also post a picture on here when I get it. This forum has been great for me and helped with our decision on which camper to purchase. Thanks everyone for your help.

If I may and you haven't already, when selecting a brake controller accept no less than a prodigy p3. It's the best of the market. Don't settle for a base model tekonsha as the braking isn't progressive and proportional to how much brake you apply.

For anyone towing that needs a weight distribution hitch with built in sway control that allows for backing I recommend Reese part number RP66082. You MAY need a bigger drop than what it comes with but this is a good start. I also recommend airlift 1000 airbags for the suspension to help level things out even more. I don't remember the exact part number but @myfirstcherokee might. It's not an exact fit but it works really well.

Cool Will this camper be ok?

@Pondhopper, I think the travel trailer I'm getting looks very similar to yours. I'm guessing you weren't concerned with the front end square footage? The maximum for our Cherokees is 39 sq. ft. Yours looks like more then that.

Please let me know of any concerns you might have about this camper, thanks!

Lol pondhopper and myself have the same trailer. The only difference being his is a little taller cause he has the Baja package.

It is larger than 39² ft actually is 43² ft, the only real problem is it cut your fuel mileage allot over 60 mph

Fuel mileage suffers considerably over 60! Goodness ain't that the truth.
