So far the RollX has had to tough freezing rain, feet of snow, thaw and freeze, regular snow and constant ice and so far so good. No leaks. Rolling her up in this frozen world is still a pain and I...

Lots of space to hook up the chains. The trouble is cranking the trailer on the ball high enough so that I can get the chains on.


I may just end up adding an airbag system as well to stiffen...

I've meant to show a picture of the trailer cut up to expose part of the a-frame to install a WDH system. Based on how the trailer was built and not wanting to over engineer this I settle on this. ...

Yup, disappointed with the trailer manufacturer. More so with the RV dealer. Ok. Some pluses. I got the truck with the heavy duty payload option (came with Max Tow). So I'll just get the WDH...

Not a great picture, but this is the area (bluish tint) I have to end up cutting away on both sides to accommodate the WDH. PITA. I dont think there is any choice.

And an awesome looking hitch at that. Looks like they clamp on a good 20" from the receiver. Like I said. The V comes forward quite a ways .... 8" shy from the receiver. I'll have to cut away a...
