KarenLukens Posted February 28, 2017 Share Posted February 28, 2017 We're in North Carolina now and we've had the chance finally to do some arranging of the trailer and repacking the car. Without the trailer, this is how the car looks right now. You can see that it is lower in the back without the trailer even hooked up, I will take another picture in a couple of days on a flat surface this time with everything hooked up and running. This car has done a lot of towing in the last couple of years that we've owned it and it always appears low in the back, that's normal. I expect any mid size vehicle to drop a couple inches when a trailer is hooked up. Like stated before, my head lights are perfect, it tows perfect, has no sway, and total control. So what you think you are seeing is simply a fully loaded car even before the trailer is hooked up. Everything that we don't need in the trailer, but needed for the 2300 mile trip to pick it up, is still in the car. I have maybe 50lbs of gear in the trunk of the trailer and that's it... On another note, it didn't say that the tongue had been changed to solid, when we bought it. We found out here just before picking it up, from you guys on the forum, that the adjustable tongue was no longer a standard option and having the adjustable tongue to me was a big selling point because I knew that I would be lengthening it for this car. So yea... That was a big let down, having it advertised in the description and pamphlets that were sent to us, but it's something that I can deal with after we get home and have everything packed the way we like it. I can extend it myself if needed in our shop, but not on the road... The options are endless and a reinforced weight distribution hitch is always another option, but it tows much more smooth then our Casita did, and the brake system is dialed in perfectly. The dual axles really make a huge difference in the towing stability and I will be crossing rivers with this trailer being pulled by this car, just like we did with our Casita. 1 Happy Camping, Reed & Karen Lukens with Riffles our Miniature Poodle 2017 Oliver Legacy Elite II Standard, Hull #200 / 2017 Silverado High Country 1500 Short Bed 4x4 Past TV - 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 4Matic BlueTEC Diesel Click on our avatar pic above to find the videos on our Oliver Legacy Elite II Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
