  1. If you think the three jacks are not strong enough to support the entire rig off the ground, then jack the frame close to the steel suspension subframe. Support the frame with tall jack stands. Dexter does not recommend jacking under the axles, I don’t know the reason. Maybe due to risk of slipping. I use the built-in jacks to raise all four tires off the ground, indoors on LEVEL concrete, without any issues or worries. Would I do it outside in a strong crosswind? Probably not. I do not recall any owner complaining of jack failure, but there may be unreported cases. I don’t thin

  2. I have no problem using the jacks to lift one side, though I wouldn't lift the trailer up on all three. I think it needs one set of tires on the ground to provide lateral stability.

  3. We have been using this one for several years in the camper. No compressor and very low amp draw. I carry it with us on long trips and also use the larger version in our garage. It works great in the camper. https://www.amazon.com/EcoSeb-DD122EA-SIMPLE-Desiccant-Dehumidifier-15-Pint/dp/B00KHJIC04/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1518632975&sr=1-1&keywords=ecoseb+desiccant+dehumidifier&dpID=41LrblthRUL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

  4. My 2008 Tacoma Prerunner with a 4.0L V6 faithfully towed my Elite 18.5 over 112,000 miles. Because it currently has 236,000 miles on it and I go to some far away locations, I've recently purchased a new TV as an insurance policy. I've chosen a 2018 F150 FX4 with the 5.0L V8 and a six and a half food bed for more cargo space. The Tacoma is a proven performer but I wasn't sure about the newer, smaller 3.5L engine going the distance towing as much as I do. The extra cargo space will also come in handy. So far, the F150 gets the same or better mpg, not towing, as the Taco. Haven't teste

  5. We tow our Legacy Elite with a Toyota 4Runner V6. We have towed our trailer all over the country and up to Nova Scotia. It has done a marvelous job for us. We love our Elite because it is so easy to park and travels really well. You'll love the smaller size.

  6. Mannyqc, We have towed our smaller Oliver with a Volvo xc90, a 1/2 ton Chevy Silverado (2005 stepside, 2 door, short bed), and now with a 2008 Ram 1500 4 x 4 quad cab. The Silverado gave us the most nimble combo, tighter turning radius, plenty of power. We still use it occasionally, but it's my daily driver and work truck now. We got the 4x4 in late 2008 for the narrow mountain gravel roads, and the ability to carry passengers, which we need from time to time. The Volvo did fine in the relative flats of the southeast, but would, in my opinion, be lacking in steep mountain p
